At Jil Sander

All about the jacket sleeve length - longer than bracelet length but shorter than traditional plus the effect is compounded by the extra shirt cuff showing.

I also really like the fitted shoulder of the jacket paired with the slouchy belted skirt.

Is it too 1984 to call the skirt "paperbagged?"

i agree it is all about the jacket. i also like how she pairs it with that blue shirt over the black turtleneck.

Those sunglasses and face are special the cuffs are unique. Everything below the belt is I think wishing to be wished away.

Go for the kill with black foots, at least not those soft boots.

I am a man but puffy skirts I do not understand.

It's as if she lost the top part of her dress, is the way such skirts strike me.

Still wonderful amazing bravo.

A stunning combination that she pulls off so well!

I like her jacket, her shirt, but not the combination with the rest.

Sart, the skirt and jacket, and even the boots, I "get," but it's the shirt I don't understand. It looks mis-buttoned, and her waistline looks unkempt, not just slouchy. The shirt just looks weird! Wait, don't tell me, ..... she works for Paris Vogue??

Holy hell, I love this look. I love the way the black shirt looks under the perfect blue oxford. And, of course, the jacket polishes everything else up.

Is this Anne Christensen? She is always featured in the Japanese fashion magazines, but I only see her once in awhile in American mags.

I grew up in the '80s....but never heard of the term 'paperbagged'. But maybe in The Netherlands they use different term...

like the brown boots with the black bag contrast. the jacket fit w/ skirt looks great to me - highly individualistic.

the details matter, but ultimately it's the nonchalance (cue haphazardly buttoned shirt) with which she carries the entire outfit off...

* thumbs up*

I actually like this a lot because she looks idiosyncratic and totally comfortable (literally and figuratively). I wouldn't wear this combination, personally, but it definitely works on her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 AM) : 

what is the matter with her shirt? It looks like she got the buttons all mixed up.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:44 AM) : 

I love the entire look, very chic and wearable!

I'd call it "dirndl"- not paperbagged.


Blogger atticus_finch said ... (3:13 PM) : 

the outfit is great and the picture of her is charming as you captured her 'i am not used to this...feeling awkward' photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:41 PM) : 

She looks great, all the elemrnts you pointed out are lovely! and I am also nostaligic for paperbagging...but only if it is executed as well as she has.


Blogger Big Eyes Strange Names said ... (5:41 PM) : 

I love this look. The casual volume of the skirt paired with the proper fitted jacket, and the slight dramatic flair of the shirt cuffs peeking out...She hit all of the marks and wrapped it up into one look with ease.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

I love that jacket - reminds me of a (sadly too small) vintage gunne sax velvet jacket I saw at my local thrift store. Oh how I coveted it!

The dress (if you look at the picture up close, you can see that the skirt and top are really a dress) does little for me as it does look mis-buttoned and ill-fitting. Oddly, although I am a huge fan of brown boots with black clothes - they don't do it for me in this pic.
