Like birds of a feather.


Blogger Chloe said ... (5:09 PM) : 

Love the bag, actually the whole ensemble is stunning.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 PM) : 

Perfectly miniature and perfectly done up!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:21 PM) : 

Love the Albert Slippers!! But much less the white socks.. Very nicely paired couple though.


Blogger Amra said ... (5:22 PM) : 

A really sweet photo! =)


Blogger Lori said ... (5:25 PM) : 

karl lagerfeld would approve


Blogger lauren baluyo said ... (5:32 PM) : 

What a cute and perfect pair! Very in sync!


Blogger Sartorial Vancouver said ... (5:35 PM) : 

Hmmm, white socks. Not too sure.

Do white socks look good in any context? Help me out here.


Blogger KTryon said ... (5:53 PM) : 



Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:57 PM) : 

Oh, her bag is so gorgeous/cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

their air of youthful innocence is so alluring
a perfect tone of well-dressed yet casual, almost playful with the headband on the girl, and the comfortable loafers on the man.


Blogger Tristan said ... (6:02 PM) : 

She looks so genuinely pleased to have her photo taken.


Blogger Craig Curtis said ... (6:12 PM) : 

These two look maaaahvelous! I agree with some comments on the white socks. I probably would have just gone with bare ankles. Regardless, they are a smashing duo.


Blogger amalie said ... (6:21 PM) : 

that is cute!



Blogger Link said ... (6:29 PM) : 

The thing about the white socks is, without them, you would be hard pressed to see any delineation between the pants and the slippers. I'm guessing this is why he wore them. I like it.

I also really like this blog, and all of the people who offer comments. Everyone is so amiable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:33 PM) : 

Next to them I feel like a caveman. Aspiraional. Inspirational. And the sox...hmm...well it takes a little funk and Im not sure he has that but boy they have something there.


Blogger tizzylish said ... (6:33 PM) : 

God, I just fell in love with the Milano couple!!! So cool!!!!!!!!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 PM) : 

Proportions and textures of his outfit are like in quattrocento paintings...


Blogger P R I M O E Z A said ... (6:36 PM) : 

i love this image. the background really makes it pop!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 PM) : 

Her mini Birkin is so cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:39 PM) : 

Slippers and white socks

Not a great idea.


Blogger Desiree Masiela said ... (7:04 PM) : 

like ensemble what the girs is wearing...looks way too cute!!and the bag...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:21 PM) : 

I think they can get away with the white socks and black bra because the rest is so polished. It makes them look a little less studied.


Blogger Hayley Sarah said ... (7:40 PM) : 

I love the chain of hers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:43 PM) : 

wow she is soemthing. what is that black thing twisted down from her neck? i like the hanging chain detail. everything's great! i like his coat and hair. they both look very modern a good way of course.


Blogger MONI said ... (7:51 PM) : 

great stylish couple, they complement each other so well.


Blogger Anthea said ... (7:59 PM) : 

They look amazing! Are they a couple?


Blogger T-SQUAT said ... (8:08 PM) : 

I really enjoy your photographs.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:42 PM) : 

White socks look good in no context. And also, too much black and white.


Blogger Jadore-Fashion said ... (8:59 PM) : 

lovely bag!!


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (9:04 PM) : 

Great photo! Love the black and white contrast.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 PM) : 

I love the black and white, I mean: white socks worked for Audrey in funny face


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 PM) : 

Unless you're the new Federer, white socks will always be a no no! Other than that, the couple looks rather chic.


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

I personally love the white socks...the woman's bra line is going to bother me, though.

Would have liked to see a splash of color, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 PM) : 

good for them!!


Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (9:52 PM) : 

They totally suit each other I adore her bag and her shirt especially. Innocence!

x0x0 Lusty


Blogger David Casavant said ... (9:52 PM) : 

I luv her kelly bag and the black and white!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 PM) : 

I personally enjoy the white socks. It's a risk well taken. Maybe he chose to wear them because putting on socks that blend in with everything below his lower half would have been too easy. Kudos to the white socks. Love her outfit, especially the added touch of the linked necklace.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 PM) : 

sharp outfits on both sans the white socks on the chap. Personally, I'm still on the fence with white socks and dress shoes Sartorial Vancouver, but here's some trend spotting I did that indicates the jury is still out...


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

beautiful people


Blogger JoewardM said ... (10:38 PM) : 

sweet! :]


Blogger TMFA said ... (10:38 PM) : 

They both look exquisite, love the coat.


Blogger Andrea said ... (10:52 PM) : 

I know this has already been said, but I love her bag.

And I love your blog!


Blogger Bonnie Marcotte said ... (11:19 PM) : 

Is that a lil birkin? How appropriate.


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

i actually like the white socks on him. i love both their outfits.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:28 PM) : 

Brother and sister, perhaps. Good impressions run in the family, eh?


Blogger hc said ... (11:38 PM) : 

5/10. accessories outshine here, though white sock are indeed nice to see again.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 PM) : 

so parisian, i love. esp the mini birkin.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 AM) : 

nice shot..

the world is defenitely changed.
everything is going opposing the original direction... many things "wrong"

Noir, noir, noir... always in style.


Blogger FCBarcaSiempre1899 said ... (12:59 AM) : 

Congratulations Scott!
You got a good write up in London's Times


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (1:26 AM) : 

Fun and severe all at the same time.
Very sophisticated for "youth."


Blogger sunni said ... (1:49 AM) : 

so italian. i love their youthful sophistication, but the modesty in their smiles is what's truly charming to me. i can't decide if they are brother and sister or a couple, but either way they compliment each other very well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:16 AM) : 

love the face mood. The biker jacket and white/black mix


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:45 AM) : 

this is just an aside, but how come all the girls on this site can put their feet together without their thighs touching??
not fair, i say ...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:50 AM) : 

Here's the problem; Sart's evidence is mounting up that life in Milan is so dull that kids have to dress up to stay interested.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 AM) : 

I love his hair...very classic! I do not know exactly why, but he looks so interesting. Unfortunately when you scroll down you see white socks. I just do not like white any occasion. But I do like the loafers.
Her mini-bag is the finishing touch to her lovely outfit (I like the high waist)
I would like to have seen their smiles, but maybe that would not have made this picture so mysterious.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:53 AM) : 

perfect couple!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:41 AM) : 

Great photo, Sart. Normally i recoil in horror at matching couples but these two give their outfits edge, they look a bit tough, they look good together. The Great White Sock Debate - i agree with Link and Anon9.53pm because i remember in the 80s/early 90s white socks (especially on men) were deeply uncool but that was 15-20 years ago and now we have a whole new set of references.


Blogger crazy cat lady said ... (6:55 AM) : 

stylish young people - love them :-) background is beautiful too. green trees and brown


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:04 AM) : 

I love his hairstyle! And a skirt without a cravat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 AM) : 

i actually like the white socks. I can't see any other way he could wear the loafers. Great job! But just one thing..why did you call this post 'youth'?? They aren't so young..although they do look fab


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 AM) : 

youth?i bet the guy is over 30...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Outstanding!! They are a perfect penguin match and Milanese all the way!! I love the lack of color and the white socks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ever think of adding video enhancements to your photos? If these two could talk we might find the answer to many many important questions!


Blogger Dan in Richmond said ... (10:11 AM) : 

The white socks look absolutely fine here. I particularly like the way he seems to be bridging the centuries with his outfit. It seems appropriate to the setting. They look great together.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:15 AM) : 

I've just seen this photo: well I feel each one, took alone, is beautiful, especially him, but togheter, I don't know.. it doesn't rock!
PS: a very nice use of the white socks with velvet slippers during the day!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:44 AM) : 

Love her tiny but structured bag, and that a necklace?

I daydream that one day you will see my boyfriend and I on the street of some European city and we'll be photographed for our pair dressing capabilities. Although he indulges my request to "match" me when we dress up, his wardrobe needs to be expanded if we are to truly seem a pair. Project! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:16 PM) : 

the smaller size Hermes bag is charming on a jeunne fille.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:08 PM) : 

The white socks are great ... it works with the updated 1960s college boy thing he seams to be doing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:08 PM) : 

Eddie Munster and Wednesday Addams, adorably spooky.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:12 PM) : 

Crikey Yanks! don't you know a couple of Teddy's when you seem them? It's England pre-Beatles all the way.


Blogger The Guard said ... (1:33 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:52 PM) : 

Oh, I like this. She, in particular, looks fantastic. Love the shorts, top, jacket, hair, everything. I even like her suggestively contained expression.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Love the white socks with loafers in this case. It works.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:42 PM) : 

I LOVE the white socks peeking out with the loafers and the slightly oversized coat... it's just so dorky chic! Her adorable collar at the throat is also a lovely dorky-chic touch :~)


Blogger Laurence John said ... (7:26 PM) : 

great photo. cannot see the appeal of his tights/trousers. anyone like to explain ?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:29 PM) : 

Am I the only one who thinks they're siblings? Not a couple?


Blogger Cassie Jo - Tofuscloset said ... (7:38 PM) : 

yay for the hair!! =)


Blogger HC said ... (9:44 PM) : 

The girl is cute. Not sure about the guy tho. His coat and shirt say amish colonial, while his loafers and pants screams fop.


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (11:12 PM) : 

Darkly, romantically stylish....two beautiful vampires ;) Seriously, this is a gorgeous, gorgeous photo.


Blogger the sophisticat said ... (5:09 AM) : 

Very romantic, so Milano! The only time I love to see white socks with velvet slippers (?). Simple details that make it so effortless, so chic.


Blogger FORMENTERA ♥ AGUAMARINA said ... (5:53 AM) : 

To darkly !!! *.*


Blogger fashion_designer said ... (7:40 AM) : 

I adore this couple - they really show the style of the youth today .. fashions future and ironically they are in fashions capital - Milan

I find you and your blog really inspirational - read about you in the Times magazine this week........ I have recently made my own blog -

and would really appreciate it if you would check it out and comment on some of the posts and suscribe to it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 AM) : 

sorry but that jacket of him looks ridiculous


Blogger Jenny Cindy said ... (1:28 PM) : 

Aww, cute!


Blogger Bookworm said ... (2:43 PM) : 

I love the girl's outfit--so cute! But I'm not a big fan of the guy's white socks....sorry...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:52 PM) : 

I think these out-fits are stunning. Yeah but no but I simply doens't understand the with socks and the overcoat. It doens't really fit, does it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:54 PM) : 

LOVE his shoes- they go so well with his jeans.



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

Gotta love this guy's shoes. Even with the white socks (and perhaps because of them...they do punch up the texture contrast between the pants and the loafers) they totally make the outfit. Somehow they're just the right complement to the skinny jeans and the green jacket...with gold buttons, no less!


Blogger bdub u said ... (10:22 PM) : 

I don't think it works here. I don't like the shoes.

Here is the context where is works...

Paul Newman at the actors studio.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 AM) : 

Not really my thing. Not that excited about this one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:35 AM) : 

omg!!!!! he is so yummy!!!!!


Blogger Cheryn said ... (12:52 AM) : 

I actually like the white almost keeps him youthful. It's playful.

Anyways, I love love love loooove this pair. They're perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:22 AM) : 

too fabulous for words! (the white socks work, perhaps he thought it was more wise to be warm rather than make a fashion statement? either way, it breaks up the black from pants to shoes very well.)

but how "youthful" are they, just out of curiosity? twenties?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 AM) : 

Going to ballet practice?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Can someone, anyone buy me a Kelly bag? All kidding aside (though I'm really not) they look adorable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:19 AM) : 

the white socks plays the wild card role in this ensemble.


Blogger Tereza Š. said ... (12:26 PM) : 

I love the girl´s outfit


Blogger Fashion Spy said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Possibly the coolest two people on the planet, I want to befriend them!


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

Mwah. Perfect match and stepping out smoothly. I think the white socks work a treat. If he wore otherwise they would be too 'match-y' (with her tights and black shoes). I like his stance too, kinda slouchy - eases the severity a tad.


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

Love love love....


Blogger lottie said ... (9:24 AM) : 

man looking tight. lady looking a treat.saved by her choice of shoe. rounded toe, non shiny heel saves what a pointy, shiny one might spoil


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 PM) : 

The girl is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!! (even if I've already seen that dress on Gossip Girl...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 AM) : 

The harmony between the couple is there; right down to their skinny black pants which taper off into adorable black shoes. Something about this photo makes me seek such harmony in a mate!

Interesting to note are the chain that seems hooked between two points on her skirt, in contrast with the vertical black ruffle design of her blouse makes for an interesting effect.

I enjoy his über-oversized coat with close fitting pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:09 AM) : 

Looks like that Arbus shot but these dudes is more self aware innit? Maybe not...

White sox rule!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:22 PM) : 

love love love love LOVE the bag, the black and white, and how ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE this couple is.

an impeccably styled and colour-coordinated beau, that's what i need...

the kelly is too obvious- the lock need not be there either.

Just imagine this picture a 50 years from now, very August Sander.

I love photography!

and those white socks should stay right where they are.

the couple, along with your title, remind me of a certain diane arbus photograph taken in new york.

oh my gosh can i be her!! i love the chains and the cute bag. oh man. the black and white looks so crisp and fresh. the length of her skirt is so cute to especially because it's so high-waisted!! LOVE!!!
