Blogger Stephanie Kim said ... (6:25 PM) : 

amazing! love the subtle jewelry


Anonymous Jason said ... (6:26 PM) : 

She is lovely. This illustrates perfectly how one can wear a nearly monochromatic outfit that still looks properly balanced due to the variety of texture. Her hair is perfect, too.


Blogger Cassiopeia said ... (6:30 PM) : 

adore her top... she looks so effortlessly kwl! :-)



Anonymous Line said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Beautiful texture in that Swaeter, and I love her hair on her..She is stunning!


Blogger Paul Baxendale said ... (6:33 PM) : 

Very exciting to get a peek at Australian Street Fashion! This lass, with great concentration, has perfected the art of leaf levitation, and thankfully it has been captured on film!


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

I'm so excited that you are visiting Australia. I hope you are pleasantly surprised by what is going on here.

Welcome to Melbourne, very sorry to read about your father - he seemed like a wonderful and talented man.

I hope you enjoy your time here.

Blogger Paloma V. said ... (7:45 PM) : 

I Looove the hair! She looks a so boyish yet so chic!


Blogger Siobhan said ... (8:06 PM) :

Blogger B. Boo said ... (8:24 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 PM) : 

I love how peaceful she looks.
Scott, are you coming to Sydney?


Anonymous Jeremy said ... (8:34 PM) : 

This is what Melbourne fashion is all about: Black on black, fitted cut, amazing fabric and a tasteful splash of jewelery. She's lovely.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:38 PM) : 

she's head to toe incredible; literally, her hair and her shoes, are of exemplary techniques.

ps. the pants are nice too.


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

I served this girl at work that day! And hounded her about that jumper... It's amazing! x

Love this minamalist chic look. Heading to Australia in a few months, can't wait to see more style in person.

i love love love melbourne! can't wait to see more


Blogger Victor Chau said ... (9:23 PM) : 

I love how the leave is floating in the lower right hand corner too...


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (9:46 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 PM) : 

She has such delicate features that you would think that stark black would not sit very well on her but somehow she manages to get away with it so as not be drowned by it.


Blogger Yasaswi said ... (10:07 PM) : 

I love the leaf floating in the foreground, just as she is pushing her hips forward to effortlessly hover on the pavement.

Wonderful shot!


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

Love her SHOES!And all these texture, golssy & fluffy, nice try!


Blogger MONI said ... (10:31 PM) : 



Anonymous Thi Nguyen said ... (10:38 PM) : 

The bowl-cut is lovely ad her necklace is a perfect embellishment. Looking forward to seeing more.


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

haha I love that leaf levitation comment.
i'm pretty sure she was also captured by the facehunter when he was here:
and another with her colourful bag:

This top has served her well! :)


Anonymous Esmoquin room said ... (10:49 PM) : 

Really nice sweater. It remembers me the ones of Burberry's Prorsum for last winter (men collection).



Blogger Elizabeth said ... (10:52 PM) : 

:) call me crazy but I'm kind of hypnotised with the 'floating' leaf there... the whole photo has a 'star treki' alien feel


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:05 PM) : 

Very exciting to see your impressions of Australia. There is a certain clarity of light in New Zealand and Australia that you seem to be capturing perfectly. - Not an easy task as it usually washes street shots out.


Anonymous Sarah said ... (11:40 PM) : 

Her sweater looks so tactile - it just makes me want to reach out and stroke it.

Like the chic slouchiness of the outfit's silhouette too - would have prefered different footwear though.



Blogger the sophisticat said ... (12:09 AM) : 

Just lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:45 AM) : 

i totally know what you mean about the quality of light, peter thomson! i'm from melbourne but am living in the united states right now - this shot made me homesick! it just looks so melbourne...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:11 AM) : 

i like the floating leaf.


Blogger bleeding hearts said ... (1:39 AM) : 

alpha60 top. this girl works there, too. everyone seems to have photographed her (and the top). she's her hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 AM) : 

she looks great because it's wearable and trendy. Love the details and the powerful black colorr.


Blogger Lady San Pedro said ... (2:46 AM) : 

It's great you're showcasing Aussie street fashion! I was there last winter and really don't understand why my Filipino bosses have the impression that all Australians dress badly...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 AM) : 

wow... i mesmerized by the floating leaf and yet gave me the impression that she was near to floating as well... it is somewhat magical... great shot sart...


Anonymous funny said ... (3:53 AM) : 

i wish i was her! so cool!


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (3:58 AM) : 

That top is just incredible! Love the texture!

Love the floating leaf too :)

Blogger Anastasia said ... (5:24 AM) :

Blogger CF35 said ... (7:18 AM) : 

She looks as if she wouldn't make a sound when she walks...x


Blogger Ruhvana and Flanelli said ... (7:43 AM) : 

I really love her outfit. The texture of that shirt, the shape of the pants and shoes and hair and.. awesome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:03 AM) : 

The levitating leaf is the highlight for me


Anonymous Lotte said ... (8:06 AM) : 

Sooooooo excited about u being in Melbourne - all time favourite city!! Can't wait to see more pics...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 AM) : 

It looks very 80's, but not in a good way. Sorry.


Anonymous Katie J said ... (8:13 AM) : 

I love wandering around Chapel Street..especially the Windsor end with all the quirky op shops. It's the best place to people watch...Melbournians have amazing style (and I'm not just saying that cos I am one...)


Blogger harps said ... (9:35 AM) : 

it's all about the floating leaf


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (10:32 AM) : 

This could be anywhere. I'm thinking somewhere in France.

I'm looking forward to more of your "I am a camera" takes on Australia.

My feeling about the fashion here: anything looks good on a thin girl.

Finally, a female NOT wearing those kill-your-back, ill-your-feet, break-your-ankle ridiculously high heels.


Anonymous Andrea said ... (12:23 PM) : 

I love her hair more than anything!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:05 PM) : 

I love how her hair cut accentuates her delicate build. The sweater is so feminine that it makes the flat shoes look actually very sexy!


Blogger miss sophie said ... (1:12 PM) : 

she looks like a chic alien pixie with access to a great hairstylist. i especially love her pants. pleats done right!


Blogger i am myriade said ... (2:41 PM) : 

She is lovely! And I especially adore her sweater ;)

Hope all's well in Australia!

wow what a face! such amazing eyes. loving the texture of her sweater and the subtlety of her demeanor AND the entire outfit.

Wow, I love that girl. She has ace hair.

are you sure this isn't paris? haha
the hair, the sweater, the pants...perfect


Anonymous Crystal Plumage said ... (8:02 PM) : 

Ohmygod, you have hit our gorgeous cities of Australia. Cannot wait to see what you do in Sydney for Fashion Week. I love this girl - it is so deliciously dark, lean and very very Melbourne.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

that girl obviously loves her jumper as she wore it on face hunter a few or more months ago! very cool but funny to see her captured again wearing it


Blogger Amber said ... (9:27 PM) : 

fabulous hair. more melbourne pics!!!


Anonymous princess glee said ... (12:21 AM) : 

Look at that swan-like neck being shown off with the scooped neck textural top. The pants look as if they're satin or satin-y-esque; as if they'd feel nice to the touch and drape gracefully. She's at ease, I like that.


Anonymous Tiffany said ... (2:27 AM) : 

this is so beautiful!
it's pretty how you caught leaf before it hit the ground.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 AM) : 

this girl look amazing- as does your other photograph of melbourne so far Sart, but please can i ask that you venture to the other side to caputre what many feel is the 'real' fashion area of Melbourne, say Gertrude/Brunswick/Smith Streets? I know you wont be dissapointed!


Blogger Piece of Cake said ... (3:33 AM) : 

my sis would love to see the picture of ppl in melbourne streets. She lives there but she's currently holidaying here. My condolences for your father's passing. He seems to live his life well.


Blogger brooke said ... (4:02 AM) : 

love it love it. hope you're enjoying the country - sydney is better! haha kidding, I'm a tad biased. the leaf is actually amazing, lol. can't wait to see who you find in sydney.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:24 AM) : 

I have seen her before in the melbourne street fashion blog - great look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 AM) : 

She looks good, but as an ex-Melburnian, it is disappointing that everyone there is still wearing black. Yes, all black is back, but they've never stopped wearing it in Melbourne, especially on Chapel St - they lost their colourwheel about 20 years ago. They are so scared of colour, and so conservative when compared to Brisbane (Queensland) fashion.


Blogger Connie said ... (6:48 AM) : 

Fantastic to see you in Australia, about time Australia got some fashion love. Love the jumper paired with simplicity of the gold pendant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 AM) :

I've noticed a lot of completely black outfits lately. I like it.

Wow! He's smart. She's cool. Great pics.

Other than her cool look, I love the levitating leaf!! Hah :D

great looking woman.

lovvvve her pants.


Blogger TakeitEZE said ... (10:11 PM) : 

this look is absolutely gorgeous and her hair is fabulous!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:35 AM) : 

i love her look! that top!


Anonymous Elizabeth said ... (3:55 AM) : 

Oh, no. Yeah, she's fab but you realise she's only the tip of the iceberg? Melbourne's a much more exciting city than Sydney, fashion-wise, though I'm not sure Chapel Street's the place to find it. Try North Fitzroy, Brunswick, Carlton or the back lanes of the CBD. Nobody does vintage tweed, layered blacks, asymmetrical cuts and schoolgirl flats like Melbourne.


Blogger HC said ... (6:08 AM) : 

She has the same hair cut I had when I was 12.

Being a doupleganger aside, she has a gorgeous sweater and a great sense of colors.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:58 AM) : 

oh Melbourne at its best: the quiet understated chic, sensuality, and minimalism..(love the levitating leaf too, now that's very Melbourne too..we're experience the most demonstrative Autumn in Aus. down here!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:33 AM) : 

I must say I don't love this look. The long top elongates the torso at the expense of the legs. The texture of the top is okay if you like that kind of thing, which actually I don't, but there is no definition of shape (e.g. a tighter pant that would contrast with the top) and the necklace cuts across the neckline to no great effect. And I don't get those pants - they're like something from a school supplier's. She has a great face though.


Blogger Angeles Almuna said ... (12:14 PM) : 

Stylish! :) love it!


Anonymous Liz said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Love the outfit. Love her features. Absolutely LOATHE, LOATHE, LOATHE the haircut. Am I the only one who feels this way?


Blogger Daniel M said ... (4:17 PM) : 

Perfect match for Erica Shires' photo of a levitating girl.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 AM) : 

i love your work and i love that you're here! hope you'll be back in melbourne soon. am i the only melbournian who actually sees colour worn by fellow melbournians? I myself wear lots of colour.


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (8:15 AM) : 

Scott.. I love how you caught the leaf on the bottom right can see the shadow that it created on the concrete.. Very cool!!


Blogger nanna said ... (1:14 AM) : 

more melbourne... please - you must surely have no end of fabulousness???

i'm in love with this awkward elfin lady


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 AM) : 

Love your work Sart, but what's with just two pics for Melbourne, and a whopping eight pics for Sydney?? Given Melbourne's reputation as the style capital of Australia, it does seem strange. Maybe the weather was a bit too cold here for your liking.


Anonymous Birgit said ... (12:49 PM) : 

...First of all:
Very sorry to read that your father passed away...
i love your photos - and especially in this one:
The leaf!


Blogger  said ... (3:13 PM) : 

i'm fallen in love with this outfit


Blogger Turtle said ... (9:05 PM) : 

So very Melbourne! Can't wait to see more of your stuff from our lovely city. Sorry to have missed your party the other night. Look forward to seeing the pics though.

Looking forward to your book launch! :)


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

She has so feminine hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:16 AM) : 

Black in Fashion.

She is beautiful. Also the complementary textures, balance and merely her posture. However, i was hopeing that you, the Satorialist would dig a little deeper into the dense layers of Melbournes laneways and streets. I think you would have found that Melbournians can wear colour wonderfully! So elegantly yet with playful undertones. Think locally hand crafted jewellery, hand printed fabrics, organic fabrics and natural dyes, not to mention our devotion for anything vintage!

I hope you enjoyed your time here in Melbourne!
