Love the contrast between the gentle pale maxi skirts and the more tough upper part.


Blogger The Photodiarist said ... (8:42 AM) : 

These skirts were everywhere during the various fashion weeks. Wonder if hers is Rag and Bone. In any event, they make for beautiful photos.

i love this look- my favorite styling of it is from your feb 2011 archives:

i was actually thinking about this image the other day- and when i go shopping i'm definitely gonna pick one up!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:55 PM) : 

I'm not usually a skirt wearing female, but these skirts make me want to run out and buy one to wear. I have a feeling when one puts it on dancing has to happen!


Blogger Maestro Curtis said ... (7:11 PM) : 

these shots are beautiful! These skirts are perfect for Spring time in San Francisco. soooo goooood.


Anonymous Alejandro Gz said ... (7:13 PM) : 

What a perfect choice for Spring. Looks amazing!

Just love It!


Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (7:51 PM) : 

Absolutely love the fullness and fluidity of the white skirts. Pairing it with the sweater is such a great idea!


Blogger STYLE ADDICT said ... (8:23 PM) : 




Blogger fromblank said ... (8:33 PM) : 

i'm really loving this look. you've given me some ideas on how to wear my long flowy skirt which has been sitting in my wardrobe unworn.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 PM) : 

Love the fabric, sheer skirts, but not see through.


Blogger Petey said ... (8:55 PM) : 

Love those long flowy skirts. Am I the only one worried about the hem getting filthy in New York?


Blogger Marc said ... (9:17 PM) : 

LOVE that first image. The treeline really accentuates the length and lines of her skirt.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:17 PM) : 

Perhaps you should buy Garance a long pale skirt, Scott, these are beautiful! I believe she wrote that you didn't like the look.


Blogger Annushka said ... (9:23 PM) : 

The divine shot, is created by the nature!!!))


Anonymous mickleworks said ... (9:25 PM) : 

mmmm ...scrumptious.
so feminine & so comfortably down~to~earth & edgy all at once


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:28 PM) : 

They look great, but you have to be REALLLYYYY skinny


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 PM) : 



Blogger Naftali Stern said ... (10:57 PM) : 

For me, it is her curls in the first pic that brings it all together.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (11:08 PM) : 

And for those following the mohair sweater trend - freezing it helps bring back its fluff!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 PM) : 

Such a delightful surprise and so appropriate as the daffodils are in bloom. I think the zipper on skirt 2, needs to be fixed. It breaks the fluidity...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 PM) : 

Reminiscent of goddesses.....timeless grace, elegance, as delicately colored and textured as if from nature. If there was more of this gentleness and sensitivity to inspire people in the hard cold cities, would the world be a better place? I tend to think so.......


Blogger Alexa said ... (11:43 PM) : 

gorgeous! maxi skrits are EVERYWHERE this season!


Blogger Jeong-Hee said ... (12:51 AM) : 

Romantic! long silhouette of bias skirt has been aways my favorite. Finally good bye to mini skirt!


Blogger Aydan said ... (12:53 AM) : 

Oh that first photo is a dream come true. I'm guessing it's Garance.. :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 AM) : 

They both look gorgeous and effortless, stylish and unpretentious. So glad long skirts are back! Yippee!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:28 AM) : 

2 words on the first one, Michael Jackson


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:11 AM) : 

It is a lovely look for the tall and lean. Long white skirts create a proportion issue that is critical...go ahead...try to imitate this look. NOT so easy as it looks...kind of like leggings..either it is perfect or you are a victim...


Blogger Stella said ... (3:30 AM) : 

What a magnificient photo. You can see the silhouette of a dancer who would delight us with an arabesque in any moment. I love it.


Blogger MELISSA Z. said ... (3:40 AM) : 

this maxi skirt is wonderful and creates awesome effects! Great pics! <3


Anonymous Coco said ... (3:57 AM) : 

The second photo is amazing. So gorgeous with a shearling jacket!


Blogger Siblings said ... (4:20 AM) : 

the skirts makes me want get swept up by the wind. its so enchanting.


Blogger Gigi Mind said ... (5:17 AM) : 

The first one girl, looks like Garance :D

Love the combination of materials!

I Love her style!


Blogger Sascha said ... (6:16 AM) : 

Lovely pictures!


Anonymous roelien said ... (6:27 AM) : 

it's a romantic look, and i like the first photo and outfit - she was meant to be photographed on that particular spot - but these sunglasses on her remind me disturbingly of michael jackson (as he would have liked to be, presumably).


Blogger liza said ... (7:49 AM) : 

Ahh, so pretty. I love these skirts in white, rather than rather predicable black. They look so fresh!



Blogger Diogo Torres said ... (8:29 AM) : 


Cute sweater


Blogger StyleToneZagreb said ... (8:35 AM) : 

Oh this first photo is so beautiful I wish I took it :))


Blogger H. Houdini said ... (9:09 AM) : 

first shot is amazing


Anonymous Melanie said ... (9:30 AM) : 

Oh... I love the light skirt with the chunky sweater. I would expect jewels and soft metal pieces with the outfit but somehow the rough sunglasses work. I wish I could pull that off. :(((



Blogger Mertxe Hernàndez said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Fabulous dress, elegant

Amazing skirt with pretty sweater can me more lovely that i think!


Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (10:12 AM) : 

It definitely gets your attention to see this worn on the street.

I love the second photo. Fortuny revisited.Uhmmm!


Blogger lintmag said ... (11:17 AM) : 

The skirt I can live without, but that gorgeous sweater in the top photo I definitely covet.


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (11:20 AM) : 

that gorgeous grey angora sweater..isn't that a stella mccartney?
the first photo is just framed so beautifully, the grey of the sweater between the grey of the trees..
the white skirt highlighted against a white road..
silver shadows contrasting with silver shoes..
cool( greys/silvers/whites) and ethereal.


Blogger Kristina said ... (11:56 AM) : 

The first photo is just perfect!


Blogger kelly frances said ... (12:09 PM) : 

a pleated maxi skirt - on my must ahve list for spring!!


Blogger Mel said ... (1:50 PM) : 

I think the woman in the first photo shows how amazing this look can be. The soft textures are wonderful. I also like the look in the second photo but the first one is my favorite. I prefer the look in these two photo's over the first one of the girl in Milan.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Much too pretty and floaty and diaphanous for the city, in my opinion - I can't help thinking about dust and dirt, it's wrecking my head!!


Blogger Trou, .bleuebird said ... (2:06 PM) : 

I'm loving the maxi skirt the more I see it. I especially adore the ones that seem to float and billow in the wind.


Anonymous phyllis said ... (2:09 PM) : 

Fuzzy sweater and a long sheer skirt - a truly classic combination


Blogger zeste de citron said ... (2:23 PM) : 

wow gorgeous !!


Blogger julieann said ... (3:05 PM) : 

mohair and silk chiffon, the perfect juxtaposition, Jx

Fabulous, I like long skirts a lot - this way especially.


Blogger Bridget Fossedal said ... (3:56 PM) : 

Those skirts are beyond ethereal. This is my favorite new feminine touch of the season -- they put a woman's body on a pedestal, outlining & hinting without overpowering or upstaging. Beautiful.


Anonymous iScout said ... (4:24 PM) : 

No matter how other street photographers try, i dont see in their photographs what i see in yours almost always, Authenticity. You capture the person’s spirit, personality, feel and dare i say it - love. a bit deep for a tuesday morning here in New Zealand, but... its true. Love Love Love “The Sartorialist” Peace.


Blogger Meredith Howard said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Very dreamy skirts. I really want a pleated skirt - maybe a short one, though.

Blogger P N said ... (5:07 PM) : 

Beautiful skirt. really fashionable.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 PM) : 

This looks like my wedding gown. It just hurts to see it 'wipe' the sidewalk! :) beautiful anyway, and ingeniously paired with the jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 PM) : 

Is this a trend?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:53 PM) : 

Loving the angora/mohair against the skirt and the shearling jacket is a great juxtaposition.


Blogger Le Chic Boutique said ... (8:13 PM) : 

love the ethereal quality of the first picture! Wish I could take photographs like these. Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 PM) : 

beautiful. they sell them here:

I love the first picture. The textures are great together. Cashmere and Chiffon- so beautiful and feminine!


Blogger smokey onix said ... (10:35 PM) : 

perfect skirt :)



Anonymous elizabeth said ... (10:55 PM) : 

beautiful combination for those not quite warm/not quiet cold spring days. it looks so elegant and easy.


Anonymous iHeartLover said ... (3:13 AM) : 

I am obsessing over the first picture... the sweater is amazing! Does anyone have any idea who it is by or if you have seen anything similar?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:26 AM) : 

Whats going on on this second skirt? Looks like it was sewn poorly at the seam where the zipper is, no?


Anonymous Alex Boyarskaya said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Hello - and thank you! This photo looked so good even small on the screen when you took it - and now after a little while it looks even better.

For those who like the jumper: hey yes! There is a lot in it to like. It's a great Russian young talent who has just created his little brand: Forget-me-not.

These jumpers are seriously the best.

Have a nice week!

oooowahhhh I am just thinking about dirty hems. Lovely lovely skirt. but I would get one in darker hue. I would flip if I get my skirt stained from dirty pavements.
