At Dries Van Noten

Doesn't this look like the cast of an early 90's Merchant Ivory film?
I think it would be so fun to come up with the plot of this movie and its characters.

Stunning series


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:21 PM) : 

Stunning. Especially the last few. I do wish Merchant Ivory was still delivering movies.


Blogger AsianCajuns said ... (12:22 PM) : 

These photographs are beautiful and they really do look like stills from a film.


Blogger Chloë said ... (12:23 PM) : 

I think it would be so interesting for you to do a real fashion shoot for a're good.

Wow, these photos are fantastic! Love them all!

very good portraits

The last picture reminds me a little of Gosford Park.

I really do think you should publish a book, by the way!

this lighting is so amazing. it looks so right. my favorite set of pictures youve ever taken.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:25 PM) : 

love the light in the photos!

Is the guy #3 (from the top) wearing an ascot? I always thought ascots/cravats were cool, casual and stylish, but in America it attracts a lot of ridicule (with perhaps the exception of NYC).


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (3:59 PM) : 

yeah, beautiful images.


Blogger Ravages/CC said ... (4:03 PM) : 

The fourth and seventh photo - the seventh especially - of the girl with a halo- are incredibly, incredibly awesome. And evocative.
I am jealous.

Great camera. Dries is sublime! And subtle. And subversive. Photo's and fashion paired like great food and wine.


Blogger Athena said ... (5:41 PM) : 

Amazing lighting. You're good Sart, as always.


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (6:06 PM) : 

beautiful lightning those pictures really speak for themselves!
great individuals as well, well done!


Blogger amy said ... (8:00 PM) : 

these are gorgeously back lit. i especially like the blonde. angelic.


Blogger ROPA TESTARUDO said ... (8:12 PM) : 

this set deserves an exhibition!!!


Blogger American in Zurich said ... (10:02 PM) : 

> or a David Fincher movie. yes, they're all really quite interesting and beautiful.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (11:22 PM) : 

OMG, fabulous! They are all so gorgeous and the lighting is amazing.

It reminds me of scenes from the 1960s Paris salon.


Blogger Thomas said ... (11:30 PM) : 

This season, men will wear shirts and women will wear dresses. The pictures are, as always, amazing. No one shoots low light like you. But the subjects are, in my opinion, a little boring. Possible movie title: "Beautiful people thinking uninteresting things."


Blogger Charmaine said ... (12:36 AM) : 

These people have interesting faces. Not just pretty ones. The lighting helps to emphasize that. One wishes to know their stories a bit...


Blogger Misterparticular said ... (12:58 AM) : 

A great departure from your usual crisp clean lighting. Bravo.


Blogger Macthomson said ... (2:03 AM) : 

You make an interesting point in citing the Merchant Ivory mood. The photos I archive from your blog and from FaceHunter's are for me a way of 'populating' the fictional world inhabited by the characters I am writing about - something I find very helpful and inspiring.


Blogger fuchsiaboy said ... (2:16 AM) : 

fantastic! really one of my fave post from you. so dramatic.


Blogger Honeybee said ... (2:50 AM) : 

I love them all but especially the lady in black.

Blonde Girl and Blonde Guy are an English brother and sister living in Paris. Blonde Guy is a philosophy student at the Sorbonne and Blonde Girl is married to an older, rich but cold Frenchman, Black Jacket Guy, an art dealer.

Blonde Guy is in love with fellow student Black Girl, a French girl embroiled in a confusing affair with their lecturer Nun Hair Woman.

Sunglasses guy is Nun Hair Woman’s son, a painter whose art dealer is Black Jacket Guy, who’s wife Blonde Wife has the hots for. But Sunglasses guy continually pursues, seduces and then dumps confused Black Girl, who consequently is also left by Nun Hair Woman. This chain of events drives her finally and happily into the arms of Blonde Guy and they move to London together.

White Shirt Guy is an American learning the art trade with Black Jacket Guy. He has the hots for Blonde Girl and watches her suffer the coldness of her husband. He decides to declare his feelings too late, finding Blonde Girl has left Black Jacket Guy and gone to Florence.

Long Hair Collar Guy is an Italian Blonde Girl meets on a train in Florence. She tells him her story and he says that when he was her age he set off to travel through America, also nursing a broken heart. There he met the real love of his life and he advises her to travel through Europe alone to find herself and open her horizons, to no longer be a wife and a blonde girl but to become who she is, then she will be ready for love.

The movie ends with Blonde Girl showing up a year later at what is now White Shirt Guy’s New York dealership, ready for real love.

The lighting is surreal, very nice skill to be able to show it in pictures this way. I love the two in the set that were posted awhile ago, but the whole series is a treat!

I come to your blog to seek inspiration from your beautiful shots, but often I find myself more enamoured by your words.

Hey there...I am such a fan of the blog...I run a Montreal based artist-co-op called seditionaire...we did an event for Montreal Fashion Week last year staging Harold Pinter's Betrayal and asking 13 local designers to costume one scene each...we are devoted to fusing the arts --visual, audio and performing--with fashion...and you say you's want to base a film on this post...I say you're on! If you really are interested...please contact me!
All the best,
