On the Street......Vintage Coat, Sydney

That is an incredibly awesome coat. I love she can make something so... old look so rebellious. :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

classic! The boots set it off


Blogger Oh Dear Charlotte said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Been missing your posts the last few days! Love the coat- looks like its velvut? Fit for a kingdom!


Blogger miss a. said ... (9:48 AM) : 

I love her hair! It reminds me of that old school Pepsi commercial where the woman walks into a barber shop and gets her hair chopped off into a short bob before enjoying an ice cold Pepsi.


Blogger Roxanne said ... (9:49 AM) : 

I love Myf Sheperd! The colours work beautifully.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 AM) : 

first one :)n


Blogger Old Housecoat said ... (9:51 AM) : 

It's all so fab! What exactly is she wearing on her legs? Might those be pantaloons?


Blogger Lucy (The Fashion Setter) said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Beautiful! =)


Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (10:03 AM) : 

I love people who're not afraid to do thier own thing!


Blogger Natalie Galitzine said ... (10:05 AM) : 

I wonder what she feels like, what she does in life... What does she want to express with this outfit? To me it looks very strange (not in a bad way, - just a surprised and wondering kind of way...). It's irritating and provoking. Very courageous :)


Blogger Dephnie Obja said ... (10:08 AM) : 

lovely style, lovely Myf!
but i think a ponytale would be fitter for that style


Anonymous Esmoquin room said ... (10:10 AM) : 

I think it's great the combination of colours. The coat is very chic. And those short (?) are really nice.



Blogger Frozi said ... (10:15 AM) : 

love that coat


Blogger Qiwy said ... (10:17 AM) : 

J'adore Dr. Marteens!



Blogger crimzonite said ... (10:20 AM) : 

:O she's got the hair style I'm currently sporting, I call it the shark fin. Her outfit is very refined; you can feel her signature scribbled all over it, because I'm she, and she alone can pull this look off. Her watch is the only thing that seems out of place, yet it's not something you would realise, until someone took a photo of her. Great post!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

I wonder how representative the australian shots are...'cause if a good number of people are so cool, it would be worthwhile to go spend some time in Sydney... I agree, the buttoned-up shirt creates a good balance with the very casual -rest. posted from in search of more style.


Blogger The Voguette said ... (10:24 AM) : 

the shorts are my favorite they complete that outfit for me.

amazing suede detailing on the coat as well.

love the whole look!

Blogger Kristen Shaw said ... (10:26 AM) : 

I love whatever it is she's wearing on her legs under that shirt and the reckless look of the whole outfit. The colors in this photo are amazing, well done.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

wow, did this just come off a runway!!?


Blogger junglesiren said ... (10:42 AM) : 

A very charming personal look.

Don't try this at home kids -- it's a look you can't just wear you've got to BE.

If I were to read a description of the outfit I don't think it would translate but seeing this girl (model?) with my own eyes I'm completely disarmed.

Love it.


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (11:11 AM) : 

That coat is completely to die for. i'm intrigued by the fabric i'd love to touch it! I agree with
kagitsune 9.44am, she's wearing a floral print and some wonderful shorts (vintage underwear?)and makes it look so edgy, a bit subversive. A female counterpart to Adam Ant in his early eighties heyday! Perfect backdrop too.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (11:24 AM) : 

That is one outrageous look. Crazy bloomers and striped socks! And finally, some buttons.


Blogger The Comet said ... (11:28 AM) : 

the color composition is like an old school still life.. lush fruit resting..

xxo HH


Blogger Ivan McK said ... (11:29 AM) : 

Her hair sort of makes the outfit... like one previous commentor stated, i love how she can make it all look so rebellious.

that coat is perfection. Also, what's going on below- are those lace shorts? Awesome!

Wow. She looks amazing! Great photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 AM) : 

she looks like she's ready to kick some arse!


Blogger Amanda and May said ... (11:43 AM) : 

i wish i was tall enough to pull off that coat. what unusual colour combo. but i like.


Blogger The Storialist said ... (11:44 AM) : 

Wow---V for Vendetta + Matrix + Superhero.


Blogger hemoglobin said ... (11:47 AM) : 

her hair !! Her hair !! Oo I abslutely love!! How can I achive that?? Any suggestions?


Anonymous amanda e said ... (11:50 AM) : 

I'm with Oh Dear Charlotte. Been wondering how busy you've been,Mr. Schumann. This is another picture to keep in mind for the day.


Anonymous Ada said ... (11:56 AM) : 

oh love the pants :D


Blogger Emily Rose said ... (11:58 AM) : 

Amazing! The color combination is impeccable. I'm loving all the people you've found in Australia.. very unique styles.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 PM) : 

th aussies have a great take on updated grunge. They have really modernized it. Inspiring!


Blogger May Kasahara said ... (12:22 PM) : 

I think this is my new favorite ever * * *


Anonymous princess glee said ... (12:32 PM) : 

Yes, that jacket is everything good about the 70s, the elongated, rounded collar, the high waist, small sleeve, below-knee length, the color combination in those shapes, it's all very happnin'.


Blogger pickupfashion said ... (12:36 PM) : 

beautiful coat....

we need to see the back!


Blogger Angeles Almuna Design said ... (12:51 PM) : 

Absolutely lovely!!!!!! and I love her hair, retro chic!!! :)


Anonymous Frenchy said ... (12:52 PM) : 

I absolutely don't want to dress like her.
I absolutely don't want my daughter to dress like her.

Buy I love loving such a great and original outfit !
Great shot !


Blogger Casey said ... (12:55 PM) : 

Fantastic outfit. With a haircut like that, you should smile a lot.


Blogger christine said ... (1:14 PM) : 

i am absolutely in love with this.


Blogger td Smithers said ... (1:19 PM) : 

wow, i have that exact same coat! ive also seen it at 2 different thrift stores and each time there is no label dying to know the history of it beyond that it's from the 70's . its suede by the way...


Blogger Danger is my middle name said ... (1:22 PM) : 

wow, this is great. The jacket, the hair, the necklace, the shorts+stockings, the colors of it all.


Blogger S.I.Q. said ... (1:23 PM) : 

the coat is amazing!

-best current model
-unusual shoes of 09


Blogger MM said ... (1:32 PM) : 

regal punk.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:46 PM) : 

Forget about her outfit (I mean it is fantastic) but her HAIR is where it's at!!!


Blogger Rico said ... (2:01 PM) : 

What I find striking about this series of photos is how very different the light is. I have wondered at times whether you were using a different camera, but ultimately realized it was truly just the light. This seems to affect people's color pallets. Though the looks are often parallel to what we might see in other places, the color sense does seem slightly different. I'm wondering if you have picked up on this?


Anonymous kristine said ... (2:32 PM) : 

horrible. is it fashion to wear random stuff just to look different?


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (2:46 PM) : 

Marry meeeee

or let your boots marry me becuase they are fiiinnneee.


Blogger The Dark Bohemiian said ... (2:51 PM) : 

why doesnt it look strange on her ?? it should be actually !!
but it looks just pretty


Blogger FiL said ... (3:00 PM) : 

I'm not a Doc Martens addict but it's an nice part of the fashion history...
Anyway I really like this pix, not because of her outfit (which is cool especially haircut and jacket), because of her face... she appears to be so strong and powerful...that carries everything...



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

love that coat,
Balmainia???? XDDD


Blogger Eze said ... (3:32 PM) : 

i love doc martens
her layering is nice


Blogger Bludog said ... (3:56 PM) : 

OK, that's 4 pix in a row which could be subtitled "Strange trousers from down under!"


Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (4:16 PM) : 

This is one fabulous coat complementing a great ensemble! Not for the faint of heart but this girl pulls it all off very well!

That photo must have been after the Dion Lee show. That's the hair she had from that.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:45 PM) : 

That is one gorgeous coat, love the rich colours, and then worn with Doc's! Classic! Those knit biker shorts are cute, haha! :)

Wow the first thing that struck me about this look is the wonderful colour combination...ambers, navy blue and crimsons are so Autumn appropriate. Love the slick hairdo too. Well played!

if she's looking so good, why the long face?


Blogger Morgan. V said ... (8:48 PM) : 

Interesting look but not my favourite


Blogger noelakadjtambour said ... (9:57 PM) : 

what beautiful colors in this shot. it's a pleasure to look at it. thanks!


Blogger just.a.train said ... (10:11 PM) : 

I love the boots. And to me, the coat gives her outfit a civil war kind of look.


Blogger CW said ... (10:12 PM) : 

The coat is OK. The shoes work well for her. The rest....not so much.


Anonymous deborah cooke said ... (11:20 PM) : 

Some of us wear clothes, some of us own what we wear ... model Myf just completely rocks in this. The shorts, the coat, the Docs. Style that you simply can't learn.

Anonymous geezi said ... (12:31 AM) : 

I think the look means nothing if the boots or hair were any different!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:18 AM) : 

I would never have had the stylish ingenuity to even imagine these pieces together but she pulls it off and looks effortlessly friggin amazing at the same time!


Anonymous Peta said ... (1:32 AM) : 

Yes, she's a beautiful girl and no doubt she could wear anything and look amazing. Well,, maybe I'm the only one here but I think the outfit would look that much more amazing with one or two more contemporary elements (other than her hair) to contrast the overall vintage feel. A different top and a really striking bold piece of jewelery would highlight the coat even more- but this is just my opinion :), there are a lot of pictures of Sydney siders but very few Melbournians to be this because you saved them all for your Saba campaign? Or will we see some on the blog soon? The suspense is killing me!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 AM) : 

The coat looks very Heimstone from Paris.

i am enamored.


Blogger Petulia said ... (4:53 AM) : 

it really seems like fashion is Australia is more relaxed..I am not seeing a lot of structured -tailored looks. No heels, very chill:-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 AM) : 

I enjoy the shorts she has but I'm undecided as to whether I like them with this outfit. Her skin is beautiful, though and she can clearly put together an outfit but I'm not sure about the watch...

Either way, I love the Docs I think they make this outfit. I've been looking for a good second-hand pair so that I don't have to break them in!


Blogger Sushi said ... (6:47 AM) : 

amazing coat x Sushi

very very nice coat! i love how it all kinda clashes :)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:58 AM) : 

hmmm not a fan, sorry.
she look like she's part of some photo shoot rather than "on the street"

btw, when are you going to post some more pics from melbourne???


Anonymous Amy said ... (9:07 AM) : 

I don't care for the shoes. The coat is okay. Not my favorite outfit. Australia is a bit separated from the rest of the world. I know cuz I used to live there.


Blogger Wondering Woman said ... (9:22 AM) : 

She looks like she just got caught rummaging in the dumpster in the alley.


Blogger Shadan Saber said ... (10:58 AM) : 

cool coat!


Blogger aLvin. said ... (11:45 AM) : 

love the shoes and her hair.


Blogger Maya said ... (12:29 PM) : 

She looks like a modern Natalie Portman.


Anonymous MaxW said ... (1:12 PM) : 



Blogger doingtheunstuck said ... (1:48 PM) : 

Great style. She looks like she just stepped off a runway—so put together. Smart color choices, and those shorts are awesome. (You picked a wonderfully complimentary background)...I wish I could tell what that is on her necklace.


Anonymous STORM of London said ... (3:51 PM) : 

This coat is awesome and goes perfectly with her shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

the outfit not so much. the teen angst and social disagreement? YES!!!!


Blogger Olviya said ... (4:32 PM) : 

very interesting make up and hair...
looks bit gothic, no?


Blogger mimi said ... (8:58 PM) : 

great look from myf!

not necessarily representative of australian style in the SLIGHTEST (she's now based in new york, correct me if im wrong)

never would wear it myself, but some models can make anything look good :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:00 AM) : 

Why does everyone love Myf Shepherd so much? I really don't see anything special...


Blogger pixie said ... (6:15 AM) : 

OMG! I had this coat or one almost exactly like it. It was in the early 70's and mine was suede. Even back then it was so cool, but its cooler now. Wish I would have kept it!



Blogger Fannah said ... (12:31 PM) : 

Are the white details lace shorts? Love it! I love these somewhat military coats as well..

Does that mean that you can't see the personality piercing through the screen? Or the vibrant style with the I-don't-give-a-damn attitude?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:52 PM) : 

The Coat is American Retro FW 2005- I have one.

Great look!

Ohhh...definately NOT MY STYLE. I don't think it's great fashion to just put on random pieces from grandpa's closet. but well, we are all different...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

hi this is really amazing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:55 AM) : 

it's a bit ridiculous

given that models can wear's sort of like... do you have to flaunt it like this? I'd rather see her in black jeans and a white t shirt.

the necklace is a little...odd. umm


Blogger Sohiny said ... (9:13 AM) : 

perfect Hippy Grunge, although a bit polished. In India, sabyasachi would be inspired :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 PM) : 


So are you saying that models can't have they're own style.. You'd prefer them all to walk around wearing jeans and white tshirts? Thats the most ridiculous thing ive ever read on a fashion blog. I love the fact that she does have a sense of personal style and isnt just relying on her physical appearance.


Blogger creative cookie said ... (11:33 PM) : 

love love love this.


Blogger Annmarie said ... (9:55 AM) : 

my favourite!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Are we sure this is not a Heimstone coat? If it is not, it very well could be...for those of you diggin the coat check out Paris design duo Heimstone and you'll see why.


Blogger Gladys said ... (4:13 AM) : 

i like the way she looks more than anything else.


Anonymous Diana said ... (10:57 PM) : 

I don't know if anyone said this already, but this picture has the same coat:
It's the same area of syndney too, although the girl looks pretty different, but I feel like it has to be the same girl


Blogger booradley said ... (5:10 AM) : 

IT'S NOT A VINTAGE COAT!! I can't remember who makes it, but I saw it in an Australian magazine very recently. It's chic, but definitely not vintage.
