On the Street....Via Savona, Milano

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 AM) : 

now this is italy..
absolutely loving it


Blogger MARIA H said ... (8:56 AM) : 

this leggings, skirt and short coat only can happen in a place with mild winter. NYC now? very masochistic.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:59 AM) : 

Once in a while I will meet a young man who dislikes his youthful appearance; I tell them youth is both the best outfit and the best accessory. Similarly, you could put these ladies in burlap dresses and they would look outstanding- but God will you look at that fitted below-the-knee skirt on the left!!! I like the light reflection on the right heel of the girl on the left. Jorge from W Palm Beach

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

it's like a dream!


Blogger Sarah said ... (9:51 AM) : 

The contrast between the starkness of the white of the wall and the black of the figures is striking, to say nothing of the fullness of the coats against the shapeliness of the women's slender legs. Exquisite!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:57 AM) : 

Black. Dull white. Gray. A street exhibiting no joy. A fitting photographic metaphor for winter in Milan, as well as the state of the world in 2009. Yer these two young women--with the exuberant height of their heels and the flirty fit of their coats--speak to the resilience of the human spirit.
A shot that goes far beyond fashion, at least to this viewer.


Blogger TMFA said ... (9:58 AM) : 

That's the best Milano can get.
Absolutely exquisite outfit.


Blogger Barbara said ... (10:00 AM) : 

Deliciously whimsical! And stupendous legs. Love their waisted coats.........

What lovelies! I love the cuts of their coats, too.

They must have to hold onto each other to stay upright in those impressive shoes!


Blogger mrtwice said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Wow! What can you say? This is so cool. The Sart at his best.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 AM) : 

OMG! Breathtakingly good! Sart, how do you do it? Your powers of your style antennae are superhuman!

waist-cinched coats.
incredibly elegant.
i love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Those girls are beautiful. At least from this perspective! Twins? I love the shoes and the hourglass figure! So dramatic. But it all seems very playful! Love it! Do you know the shoe brand! They're exquisite!


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

O how sweet! They're like two hip novice nuns, or maybe the latest thing in uniformed schoolgirls. Love the flash of "nude" leather from the bootsoles of the girl on right. Designers haven't exploited the highheeled shoe/boot sole enough, by the way--it's a kind of fashion erogenous zone, and to my knowledge only Louboutin has really used it (with his signature vermilion soles).


Blogger sbarah said ... (10:21 AM) : 

This is amazing, the richness of the black against all those grays, the vivid shape of the girls and the little heart-shape of light peeking through between the waists - and I love that seeing a tiny bit of the face on the right makes this shot totally human. Beautifully dressed too. Wonderful


Blogger Hemaly said ... (10:34 AM) : 

This is lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:41 AM) : 

A breathtaking photo.

It looks as though the window frames are blushing at having gotten caught looking out at these two lovely women.

Shots like these urge the rest of us to find the ordinary beauty in each day where we otherwise might not have looked.


Blogger melange muse said ... (10:41 AM) : 

silhouettes are lovely


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

Even though it's in color, it could be a a b&w shot by Henri Cartier-Bresson from decades earlier. Timeless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

I always wear black. Black is elegant and these woman are the perfect example for it!

I love all the pictures dear Sart!

spectacular shot. i want these coats.


Blogger Claudia Shekufendeh said ... (12:11 PM) : 

I see tweens walking around every day. Dressing the same, walking the same, hair in the same style. I see this photo: Uniform dresses, similar hairstyles, but each one brings a different variety, and expresses different styles. It's simply chic!

Ooh I want a friend or sister to look like this with. So basic, so sexy, so sweet, so edgy.

The fashion twins, looking good, out on a stroll, hoping to land a part in a Robert Palmer (too late) video.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:48 PM) : 

Girls like these are the reason I love traveling to Europe and walking the streets. I can't tell you how many women I saw with this silhouette (a true uniform of sorts this winter) and they drew eyes everywhere they went. They are a wonderful reminder that winter clothing doesn't necessarily mean a loss of femininity and youth.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:56 PM) : 

luvvvv the coats!! very dark colours but not dull!
i wud luv to be the 3rd one walking wif them lol

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:29 PM) : 

Black is a color that gets you lost, especially in New York City, but the silhouettes and fit makes them stand out. Black is starting to become a staple in my closet.

Gothic and wistful at the same time, arm in arm chatting about who knows what. The perspective from behind adds to the mystery of the moment. Grand shot, Sart!!

reminds me of witches


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 PM) : 

I have a coat very similar (of what I can see) to the girl on the right's. I love the skirted coats. Vidler Nixon made a very similar one. Warm, versatile, and still feminine and chic. I love it.

Time travel, self replication, and dualism incarnate. Too beautiful to be real. Look at the negative spaces between their legs-too perfect, and the heart-shape between their waists? I wonder what kind of advice/encouragement she's giving herself. You're eavesdropping on the immortal. Thank you.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:20 PM) : 

What an absolutely stunning photo! Love everything about it!

What a magnificent photo. I love how our attention is drawn to the shapes of their clothes as they are all in black. Check out my Tokyo Harajuku Street photos if you get a chance.

Bloody amazing! This must be one of your best shots ever. The all-over black totally make those silhouettes.

I hear you get discounts at Chanel if you're twins and buy the exact same thing. Obviously this is the beautiful truth.

I am struck by their simple hair. Looks natural, not with some horrible color job with unreal magenta or overdone zebra streaks. No of-the-moment cut that will make them cringe later. They will have no regrets.

In my humble opinion the best photo of yours Sart.

I would blow it up huge and hang it in my hall.
