The crispiness and sheer quality of the garments torments me on the elegence that is showcased so perfectly; The structure of the pants are quite incredible; a question of structure to comprehend for a mind...Captivating. X Neda X

This styling is so seemingly architectural. The hard edge between the pant and the jacket, the sloping yet squared belt, and the platform shoes ... all look like the beginnings of a great building. I love it.

this outfit seems to be defying gravity... how are her pants staying up? it looks very uncomfortable, but love her purse and her top.

I like her trousers. I have only of late come to appreciate trousers.



Blogger Luciane at said ... (9:29 AM) : 

This woman is tres chic, but there's something too dark about her. I love seeing people with something light and happy.... that's what make them and their outfit attractive to me.

Enjoy your day!

This outfit is absolutely stunning, i'm head over heals for it. gorgeous

Margiela pants?
I like conceptual fashion.



Anonymous Elizabeth said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Wow...this is gorgeous. The blues and greys, with the paleness of her skin create a striking palette. It reminds me of "London fog." Beautiful photograph!


Blogger FH said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Big pant !!!


Blogger Heather said ... (9:32 AM) : 

I am intrigued by her pants, which are too big. That gap on the left side amuses me, though I really can't understand how her pants are staying up sans a belt! Nonetheless, that shift with the sweeping fabric is amazing.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I Love the photo! And I love the outfit too!

What is this look?? anti-fit...frumpy-chic...I don't really get it but she's looking very good!


Blogger Fashion Nerd said ... (9:45 AM) : 

She has stunning facial expressions, and the movement in her outfit itself is amazing. Her face and clothes as a whole makes me feel that sheis hiding something, maybe a rebellion or something allong those lines. Such a cool photo!

what is going on with the waistline of these pants??

Glamorous! But, I'm just wondering how the heck she keeps the pants up.

Not sure I am feeling the oversized belt and oversized pants combo, though overall this is a great idea.

Why does her waistband look like it's protruding away from her body? I love the cut and drape of the pants though!

Gorgeous, but me thinks her pants are a tad too big for her! But hell she can totally get away with it being tall and svelte, you could wear a paper bag and look glamorous!

Blogger JAKARECH said ... (12:03 PM) : 

I love how you can see the scale of how oversized these trousers are, great photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

I agree with the last comment about seeing Margiela on the street. These conceptual ideas are sometimes so crazy you'd never think you would see an actual real person wearing any of it. But how exciting that here she is in all her reality standing on the sidewalk in a pair of trompe l'oeil trousers, and, red lipstick to give it a bit of life in that gray London air.


Anonymous Anna said ... (12:05 PM) : 

Amazingly elegant in a easy way.. Just how you want to do it!

I really like what she did with that belt. Interesting shapes!


Anonymous P8 said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Sart, what on earth is happening with the waistband of her pants? Fashion has to serve some function, doesn't it?--especially street style, I would think.

I do love the rest of the outfit, though, especially the feminine blouse contrasted with what looks like a tux cummerbund, and the angle at which it is worn.


Blogger Trou, .ma petite cherie said ... (12:40 PM) : 

I love this look. Especially the high waist pants and the coat.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:54 PM) : 

Um never mind about the first part of my last comment. I just looked up the pants and found that there's an inner elastic waistband. Genius!


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

Maison Martin Margiela at his best example !

Lovely - the trousers are so elegant. What's going on with the waist band though? I can't quite work it out..

she's so on trend with her menswear inspired outfit! did anyone see the Paul Smith collection a few days ago? all borrowed from the boys. i did a quick review on it if you want to see a few looks.

PS. her pants = unbelievable, but I've lived in London and who tell me WHO can walk around in platforms that high??!! i've never seen it IRL. Sartorialist, you are luckier than I in finding the fabulously-shodded :)

I saw on this day and she is so beautiful. She is ACTUALLY like this photograph. I am surprised scotty didn't pap her from behind as the slits going down the back of the trouser leg are one of the best bits of the look
lovely hues

She really executes those Margiela pants well; they appear so wearable! The simplicity of her makeup and the cool colors of her ensemble keep this look sophisticated and not over-the-top. I love the way the hue of the trousers corresponds with the background of the photo. Great composition!


Blogger Mr.Look said ... (3:18 PM) : 

The pulling on the pants did it for me!


Blogger Bonnie said ... (3:20 PM) : 

The colors. Her hair. Her lips. Her pants.
Everything in this photograph seems to flow naturally together.
It's more like a work of art than anything else.

Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:05 PM) : 

I'm with comment #3 - the outfit is confusing, i.e. what's this around her midriff? a belt? how do the trousers manage to stand out at her hips? and the length... how can she walk? but apart from these very mundane thoughts she - and the picture - is absolutely stunning.


Blogger Steven said ... (4:06 PM) : 

Love the pants super rad


Anonymous ClothesDR said ... (4:24 PM) : 

She is like my wonderful 1940s French looking beauty, even though she is British. Studding pants, I wonder how she keeps them up?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Wow, she is brave. That is some outfit. The pants, the wonderful blouse, the big belt, the shoes. All of it over the top and yet... not. She did a great job.

Her scarf-like blouse and the background building's moody blue make this photo. Of course her alabaster skin & sleek black hair work too.

Any idea how her pants are staying on?

I love the slightly blown out of proportion, demure colour palette, and nonchalance of the whole look.


Blogger Vanessa said ... (9:06 PM) : 

Beautiful colours and composition. I love how you have framed the picture. It is really rather poetic!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 PM) : 

I have been thinking about this image ALL DAY. It is incredible. Her body, in this clothing, is like a sculpture, and the proportions and alignment of her parts (left hip, shoulders, face, chest -length of chest, oh my goodness!) are so challenging. Whenever I focus on anything other than her right eye my mind goes into a spin trying to align her into a conventional shape.
Thank you. Amazing.


Blogger fig said ... (2:01 AM) : 

Wonderful blouse!


Blogger sartorialistanbul said ... (2:21 AM) : 

Wow! What a stylish photograph! I love the cool blue effect in the photograph. Does anyone know how he creates this feel?

Is achieved with filters on the camera or post capture on photoshop?

Would love some help.


Anonymous Josefin Arestav said ... (4:14 AM) : 

Nice photo Scott. It really depicts the atmosphere in London last week. And to people who are curious about the trousers from Margiela. There is an elastic waistband inside, keeping them on place, so no, they are not too big.

I go to lectures every day in that building behind her and the one week I have off where I don't go down there, Scott Schuman is outside my university taking photos and I don't get to get an autograph. Just my sodding luck.... People don't ususally dress this well outside along the Strand, London Fashion Week makes every dress up in the street fashion equivalent of their Sunday best. I'm pretty sure there were people doing laps there today though, not going into any building there, hoping to get their photo here. Love the blog x

Anonymous ak said ... (11:44 PM) : 

I like what she's wearing and it's also weird because the pants by her hand on her right side look way to big and gappy, and it looks like she has a cummerbund on that's slipping right off!

Love Martin Margeila. Love her look too. You can't help but want to know who she is.


Anonymous manchester escorts said ... (10:27 PM) : 

She looks so elegant and I understand the whole masculine thing, but those trousers need to be nipped in, apart from that she rocks!


Blogger 4eyeblogabout said ... (3:17 PM) : 

I love this look. Its very me. But I wonder where the waistband of her pants start and end...? Love the shawl like top, hmmm think I can get the same effect with a white pashmina cross tucked with a white tee underneath. Very simple outfit, but made interesting with texture. Love it, thank you for this photo.


Blogger Neatnikker said ... (12:17 AM) : 

I love this look- pure white ruffles and ruffles of femininity peeking out of a sharp masculine grey suit with big belt has a tongue in cheek balance that hits a nice spot:)
