On the Street....Glove Hat, Paris

Comments on "On the Street....Glove Hat, Paris"


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (4:31 PM) : 

Not to mention everything else! The sleeveless/cape-ish trench is wonderful. Perfect neutral to the boldness of the pattern of her shirt-dress, too.


Blogger Admin said ... (4:33 PM) : 

This is beautiful... I've never seen such a coat...

Such a beautiful combination of colors' too.

this whole look is incredible and just slightly off kilter. both the hat and the trench are such traditional items but they have been completely turned on their head. i adore this look and her simple calm posture. gorgeous photo. the hat is just one part of what makes it so captivating. xx

Love the outfit (and as always your photography), but I must say find the hat plain odd.

I wouldn't call it a hat, rather a headpiece. A wonderful one nonetheless.

This lady is radiating so much style and class, it made my eyes go moist there for a second.

Just beautiful.

what i'm more thrilled about is that jacket and the way this gal is wearing it.

Hmm. I think I would have liked this better with matching white Russian veiling, not black, which can be barely seen here. Great idea..perfect for that one glove without its mate!

Gloved hat an homage to Elsa Schiaparelli.

op art suit tribute to cardin in the 60's.

miltary inspired " jacape" ( can we start a new word for jacket/cape?) reminiscent of YSL in 68.

The trench is a normal trench that she modified, no? The sleeves are pinned back and attached somehow and she made new holes for her arms to go through. Or is this not her original creation?

My mom's told me stories about women pinning gloves or handkerchiefs into their hair when they forgot to bring their hats to church in pre-Vatican II days. This looks like a fun take on that tradition. (and while I don't usually like trench coats--yes, I know, I'm a fashion heretic--I like the odd little cape-coat thingie, too.)

The coat combined with the grid print shirt dress is fab and obviously the "glove hat" ha! fantastic. I like it how she tones the outfit down with the casual looking scarf so she doesn't look too serious... or she could have borrowed it off her boyfriend coz she was cold?? :)

The glove-hat looks fabulous on her, who will we next see wearing it, perhaps Keith Richards or Johnny Depp??

Love the dress & coat, but I would think the hat looks odd; like someone on the last train accidentally dropped their gloves on her head. The rest is fabulous, though!


Blogger San said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Love this unusual hat and style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

I personally hate that jacket. Leighton Meester wore it on an episode of Gossip Girl and I couldn't help giggling that she looked like a box with arms that could barely rest at her sides. However, on this woman, awkwardness is beauty. She is wearing a pair of gloves on her head, for crying out loud! This woman can pull off anything.


Blogger Tara s Dolce Vita said ... (9:52 AM) : 

Nice hat!!!


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

The trench-cape is just an awful garment, I hope it will be a very short-lived trend. This girl has true natural beauty, and she is really carrying the strange glove-hat very well, but sorry: the cape just spoils the whole look.

I think she made the cape from an old trench, so kudos to her for such originality. Speaking of which... the whole thing is so original, it's breathtaking.

The "hat"--I mean hat--has such graceful lines, delicate color. An altogether creamy grace note to a playful, puckish look.

Love your look and your gloves haha


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 PM) : 

Is that really her hat or is she at some event requiring head covering? (She does look like she's waiting for something.)

Is any one else old enough to remember when hats were required for women in Catholic churches (this is pre-Vatican II) and certain civil ceremonies? (Recall the to-do when HM Queen Elizabeth did not wear a hat to Charles and Camilla's wedding.) Back then if one had to step into a sanctuary unexpectedly it was acceptable to put your gloves on your head so it was "covered." To me is screams, "I forgot my hat!"

I wonder if the designer was inspired by some old photographs. For me the association makes it look jury-rigged rather than stylish.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 PM) : 

It's so interesting to me how when I look at a new photo, I have an immediate, overall, reaction. And then I read some of the comments and something makes me look again. In this case, the colors, are, interesting. But overall, the woman seems unable to make up her mind. The hat is clever and unusual, but it gets lost in the outfit....the coat is different..but not practical. If it's cold enough for a wool scarf, maybe some sleeves would be a good idea? I can appreciate the effort.
