she's lovely, the dress is not.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 AM) : 

Very dynamic, in motion.
Great how her low slung belt duplicates the casualness of her loose hair.

this is the girl of my dreams.....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 AM) : 

Wow! You can hardly tell it´s her!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:43 AM) : 

The way her dress is billowing in the wind, the bare feet with a touch of polish, the warmth of a secret garden (if only in my mind - It's like she's staring into my soul.
Favourite photo yet.
Pure brilliance.

What a magnificant composition!


Blogger Bea said ... (4:57 AM) : 

The beautiful light makes me wish I was there. She looks like an exotic fish. And she looks so free! :)


Blogger Sean Santiago said ... (5:01 AM) : 

Very evocative picture, although her expression belies the bohemian-romanticism of her dress!


Blogger Diana said ... (5:06 AM) : 

Have you ever thought about making a movie? Not a big one, just a short fantasy in sartorialist-style.
E.g The Makeover of a Phoenix



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:13 AM) : 

She knows how to best combine the dress and the belt.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:57 AM) : 

Garance Dore' has more pictures of Louise, who is adorable.


Blogger stacy said ... (6:24 AM) : 

it's amazing how much magic a little bit of wind can bring to a photograph.

great one.


Blogger cat minoki said ... (6:46 AM) : 

This pic just makes me feel the soft wind, lets me smell the fresh flowers and the new green leafs on the trees.
She looks pure and ethereal. Great dress, only the waistbelt avoids that she just flies away...

She reminds me of an oleander bloom,
or hibiscus...
everyone who has been to the south of france in early spring knows what I mean.


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (6:48 AM) : 

beautiful dress. makes me want to go on vacation. or maybe if i had a dress like that, it could feel like i'm on one...


Blogger said ... (6:52 AM) : 

A pastel pink path, little lights against that aquarella sky, the breeze of the sea, a beautiful misterious garden... Please Sart tell us more stories about Hyeres.

wow I love the bohemian look. it's really big in Japan right now too. - Jenelle

Glad to see how nice the weather was at the Hyeres Photo Festival while we were freezing in New York! If anyone wants to read about last year's winner of the photography competition, go to:


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:51 AM) : 

It's so funny that you and Garance Dore both have photos of Louise in the same outfit, twice! Garance Dore also had her in the gray socks and green (?) shoes and black dress outfit. I like this girl a lot--she's just lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:01 AM) : 

Another great shot! Great light, wonderful framing. The transluscent skirt is fab.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 AM) : 

This is the girl in the mustard scarf who garnered lots of comments. I think it was in the Tuileries.

Scott - how and why do you keep running into her?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 AM) : 

enchanting........a garden goddess. LOL

What a beautiful dress. The whole pic just makes me dream of france : )


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

These pictures from South of France are beautiful, artistic shots. The outfits however are plain and uninteresting to me.


Blogger Cheryl Houston said ... (9:41 AM) : 

the clothes and the people are fabulous from all of the latest photos but more than that- I wish I was there!!! The setting is gorgeous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 AM) : 

Ça fait rêver... de printemps, de chaleur douce, de campagne et de souvenirs! Is there still a thing called south of France?... Bucolic and ethereal. Hopefully forever. Éternel.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 AM) : 

My mum has a dress so like this one that she bought for her honeymoon in 1972. I adore it i'm a much larger build than her and got too big to wear it age 9!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 AM) : 

This is so springy!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 AM) : 

What a contrast! So gentle! I like the almost transparency of her dress which melt with her jade like legs! Bravo!
Thank you for setting the blog, you enliven my busy life!

Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (10:25 AM) : 

this is the best ive seen the boho/hippie look on the street.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:58 AM) : 

Amazing idea to shoot with the sunlight behind her, it completely accentuates the etherial lightness of her dress, also the halo of the light in her hair, beautifully shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

i love the light on your picture! Garance Doré took her picture as well here
but i can totally understand why you both took her! she's lovely


Blogger Lavinia Fernandes said ... (11:23 AM) : 

Great photo!!!
Wonderfull dress.


Blogger Yi said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Hey Sart,where did you take this picture?? Looks likethe garden of Eden. Breath-taking!

I love that she's barefoot..


Blogger the quarter rat said ... (11:39 AM) : 

It's an updated Slim Aarons: a beautiful woman who belongs in this beautiful place. Heavenly. (I'm gonna have to see this Hyeres place for myself!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Oh,my. Is there a renaissance fair in Hyeres this time of year?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Perfect outfit, perfect face lineament, perfect hair. I just love this girl. She looks adorable


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:24 PM) : 

A Pre-Raphaelite painting come to life!

The flowers, the bare feet, the sun coming through her dress, her expression...this whole composition is just beautiful.


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (12:56 PM) : 

French women are so beautiful - and they don't even have to try!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:37 PM) : 

part of me can't believe that the indian/hippie dress is back, mostly, because i come from a hippie community and grew up wearing such things.

part of me is, also, very happy.

i also saw this girl on garance doré's blog. i'm glad to see her without those heavy black frames smothering her gorgeous face. i mean, i thought they were cute, but not fitting for what other things were going on, style wise. who am i to say, though, be free!


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

the print is a breath of fresh air, after such a long winter...


Blogger Stephanie said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Oh, Sart! These pictures from the South of France are magical. Hypnotic. They make me want to forget who I am and go to be whoever I would be if I were there. Louise is a vision from sheer imagination, and I don't even want to say what imaginations spring up at the sight of Mr. Ackermann, there! Sheesh!

These are people whose clothes seem to be as much a part of them as their own skins are, and it's as if they've made pieces and refractions of that amazing light into something to wear! Thank you so much for posting these.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 PM) : 

Wow, wow - I was in awe the moment I saw the photo, quite a breath of fresh air (in this stale office!). Everything is beautiful/perfect - the colors, the dress, the girl, and the lighting (the sourroundings and her dress) is exquisite. Anonymous at 4:00 am put it well "a vision in color". My favorite photo of yours so far. Thank you!


Blogger Super Milk-Chan said ... (2:55 PM) : 

I love her. And I love the feel of the photo. Your backgrounds always compliment your subjects so well.


Blogger Coryn said ... (3:12 PM) : 

So carefree and beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:17 PM) : 

did you ask her to take off her glasses? i've already seen her picture all over the blogs.

for one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:26 PM) : 

great photo, great place!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

That light is phenomenal


Blogger Seanrwatson2 said ... (5:11 PM) : 

It has a French country feel. Her neck is stiff. Lovely model though. Great colors.


Blogger Val said ... (5:32 PM) : 



Blogger a girl dreaming of a wild, dangerous life tinged with anarchy said ... (5:51 PM) : 

this is so lovely! the light and colours. her dress makes a beautiful fan shape caught in the wind. this makes me think of summer and sun. thank you, it's gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

i love the simplicity of this photograph + the rest of your 'south of france' shots. merci beaucoup!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:08 PM) : 

Oui, oui, oui!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 PM) : 

This woman is just the epitome of glamor and elegance without looking like she tried. Absolutely beautiful. Frankly, all the photos you've posted from the South of France have been out of this world. What a good batch!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 PM) : 

Makes me excited for summer! But I'm sad to say I don't like the dress so much. The picture is beautiful, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:27 PM) : 

It's interesting to compare the photo of this girl here with the photo of her on garancedore. She looks so different! Here she looks so poetic and beautiful, on garancedore she looks so cute and quirky.
I hope the boho look comes back - it's so feminine.


Blogger lorli said ... (11:45 PM) : 

love love love the dress- where can i find something similar?


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

Shes gorgeous! The dress isnt so much, but her natural beauty and her calmness and confidence makes up for it.


Blogger pig_93 said ... (2:40 AM) : 

this is stunning she looks amazing. so simple and delicate.

Louise is lovely.
Punky-b has more photos of Louise (and other people at Hyeres) on her blog.

She is right out of a fairytale. Illuminating.

The hit for the summer 2008


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:36 AM) : 

i'm typically not fond of the bohemian style, but she is simply stunning. beautiful shot, sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:22 AM) : 

Now here is one fine example where a cigarette would ruin the photograph. I'm sad to admit that, as most of the time, the addition of a cigarette is just another detail in the photo and the wardrobe. I believe it would take away from the purity and beauty of this shot, as its not necessarily a 'fashion photo'. Excellent work.


Blogger Kanani said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Ah, thank you.
I feel like I can breathe again.
By the way, if you ever get a chance to shoot Maxine Hong Kingston --take it. She's stunning.


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

This would make for a perfect dyptich with your New Delhi at night photo....lovely.

This photo has convinced me that I want to travel to the South of France and live there for as long as I can... Just Beautiful...


Blogger MCF said ... (8:53 PM) : 

This is a stunning photograph. The lighting and movement create an other-worldly sense about image. It's beautiful.


Blogger Sarah M. said ... (10:13 PM) : 

oh my god, the first few times I saw this photograph I didn't realize it was Louise! She has garnered quite the following, and now I completely understand.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:27 PM) : 

ethereal and yet lively.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 AM) : 

I think barefoot and relaxed is by far her best look.

Maybe it's because I'm fond of frequently running about without shoes myself. :)


Blogger Jana FitzGerald said ... (5:18 AM) : 

I do not love this dress. It's appealing in a 70s Loulou de la Falaise - Yves Saint Laurent - Jacqui Getty - Marrakech - cloudy smoke mystic glamorous way, but it's not very flattering for her, and she is quite beautiful. The bottom falls nicely on her, but the top is just wrong, I think.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 AM) : 

Touch of the Lady Di about this one


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 AM) : 

wow ! so 70s !
such a Flower Power face !

Blogger mette said ... (12:46 PM) : 

She looks like a fairy. Truely a nice ,comfortable dress to wear on a warm summer day/eve.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:17 PM) : 

Can I marry this girl and live with her in sout france - like forever?


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

south of france, portugal or anywhere else.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:58 PM) : 

That is a beautiful dress on a beautiful woman. She looks so comfortable, carefree, and relaxed.


Blogger Anastasia said ... (4:59 AM) : 

bohemien beauty! beautiful light...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 AM) : 

I have always been a big fan of summer dress with beautiful prints such as Indonesian batik prints, African tribal prints, Animal prints, etc.

The girl looks so angelic and the dress just perfect!



Blogger wonting said ... (1:12 PM) : 

I want her dress!!! Great picture, as always!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:45 PM) : 

Is Louise a friend who joined you there? Anyway, she is lovely, unique and want to know what work she does.
You really captured Provence.Did you take a photo at the castle ruins?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:56 PM) : 

lovely pic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:13 AM) : 

Beautiful background. I love the lighting and the way the sun radiates through the sheer fabric of her dress... but, is her left arm a tad shorter than the other? what is going on there?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

Completely reminiscent of St Laurent's peasant looks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 PM) : 

wow, she's really beautiful, and the picture too!


Blogger Jules Irene said ... (6:52 PM) : 

This is bohemian chic done right. Brilliant, and not over-accessorized.


Blogger Pratishtha Durga said ... (1:51 AM) : 

What a beautiful woman! What a beautiful picture! You are leaving behind a legacy of beautiful images. In the past year or so, you have captured such lovely moments... and made so many people happy!

I am in love with this dress. Very gypsy and free-spirited! This look has a very Stevie Nicks-y vibe to it with a hint of Woodstock.

Wow, so floaty and natural.
