One can't knock that! Hand painted surrealist leather bike jacket, fish print shirt, just great. A million times better than the 'punk-by-numbers' one sees on a daily basis.


Blogger street number eight said ... (4:54 PM) : 

i love the intensity in her eyes...and of course the Picasso-inspired jacket :)

I've been featuring TONS of multicolored hair on my street style blog too! I love love love dyed hair.


Blogger haikarapaprika said ... (5:02 PM) : 

This is the coolest, classiest punk-rock style that I've ever seen.

First of all, the leather jacket is just beautiful and absolutely gorgeous.

Second, the textured coloring of her blue hair makes me want to dye my own hair, even though I am usually averse to this.

Third, she has garter clips hanging out below the hem of her shirt-tails and she does not look trashy at all.

Altogether, it's an effortless ensemble that looks like it could be on the runway. This is marvelous.

Also, the wood in the background is gorgeous.

Jacket is uber cool but I am really interested in the shirt. Anybody know about that?


Anonymous Johanna said ... (5:09 PM) : 

Incredible jacket!


Anonymous Jyotika said ... (5:12 PM) : 

Guernica was done much later than Picasso's Blue Period paintings, so with her blue hair, she pays homage to him not once, but twice. /J

I don't think I'll ever quite say I "like" blue hair...but I still like it better than NO hair!


Blogger ShopMonica said ... (7:40 PM) : 

Great pic. Love the look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

Had Picasso lived today, he wold have loved the way she applied his image onto this very functional, mass produced but iconic garment. And being a true formalist, I think he would have appreciated the blue ensemble too.
On a very different note, I was amused to see this picture, because it reminded me of what the artist Richard Serra said about Guernica when asked about arts capacity to change the world;
"I don't think any one art work can change the world. The idea that Guernica had anything to do with the war is hogwash. I mean, no bombs were ever stopped because of Guernica. I mean, we can go to it now and say "Look at this great painting. It shows the horrors of war." But it didn't prevent any bombs from falling."
I love Serras brutal honesty. But the painting is a strong symbol even today and that's why it belongs to this jacket.


Anonymous diamond rings said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Very cool, love the jacket.


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (8:09 PM) : 

I like the leather jacket, the designs and zippered sleeves- and is that her hair or a wig??


Blogger Steak and Fries said ... (8:10 PM) : 

Not enough love here for the fish print on the shirt. The jacket looks relatively new. Is the jacket DIY? Bottom of the jacket says Claire Barrow ?


Blogger Steak and Fries said ... (8:15 PM) : 

There hasn't been enough mention of the detail on the shirt with all those fish. Does anyone know if the jacket is DIY? The bottom of the jacket says Claire Barrows, any ideas?

Ah that's my favorite Picasso!


Blogger CDC said ... (9:35 PM) : 

aaaaah refreshing. i'm always so glad when this site considers and showcases different kinds of styles and looks that might otherwise be classified as being on the fringes of fashion. to me, it is just as important to capture, share, observe and appreciate the tougher side of fashion and real people who wear it wonderfully. it would be so easy for you, Mr. Schuman, to get swallowed into just the biggest names in fashion, the haute couture aspect, and see things through that sheltered perspective. now this is what i call keepin' it real.

it's nothing like my own style, but i love this look and the woman is captivating. great photograph. isn't that the whole point of this?

yup, you definitely can tell this is in London.

I am sorry, but I don't really think this is in good taste. The painting was done in response to the horrific experiences of victims in the Guernica attach. You might as well have an Auschwitz jacket.

Manga Princess. Fierce one. The cobalt blue of the tresses catches and syncs with the shades of blue in her eyes; perhaps she is a prettier version of the heroine from Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy?

Masterpiece. What are those buckle things at the backs of her legs??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 AM) : 

It's poor taste, I think, to do this with an image of Guernica. Maybe the jacket's designer is trying to make a an ironic point about fashion-hype or something, but the point is too intellectual and leaves a bad taste.

Blogger Unknown said ... (5:53 PM) : 

This is certainly v interesting, at least conceptually. It's a bit difficult to judge whether it ends up looking good, or not.

However, I am not, personally, completely in favour of the commodification of art. Paintings are not logos, there is a depth to them that tends to disappear when they are mass reproduced or simply distorted in order to become design artefacts.
