show me your dress and i'll tell you who you are
Genevieve, old - Soho
i was just photographing someone else when she was pointed out to me on the other side of the street. indeed her casual, yet sphisticated style as well as that adorable dog left no doubt that she had to be on the books. her dress is by Spencer & Graham, shoes are Barber Bui, bag is by Prada and glasses are Lanvin. Genevieve works as a jewelry designer and was just right in the middle of dry cleaning and dog-walking.
Marisa, 20 - Soho
this young lady and her buddy Robert (see below) were just on their way to the theatre when i met them. her dress is vintage from a store in LA called "The Elegant Mess". shoes are Stella McCartney, glasses are Chanel.
Robert, 26 - Soho
the only man i saw that day who was on top of his fashion! Robert wears a top by Alberto Marani, Shorts with little scorpios on them by Brooks Brothers and shoes by Bottega Veneta. he works as a fashion publicist.
before agreeing to take this picture she made sure i didnt shoot for the Don'ts section in Vice magazine. and how could i when Sophie's style is a absolute Do. vintage shoes from Paris, a Marc Jacobs Skirt and leotard by American Apparel. all rounded up by my favorite accessoire - blood red lipstick. Sophie works in an art gallery and likes spicy food. (or she seemed like she would).
Anna, 33 - West Village
hey mate! this lovely australian musician has been living around new york long enough to make it hard to detect her accent, but it is there. her outfit is vintage from australia, shoes are from a store called Dalaga and the bag is from a yard sale.
Amanda, 24 - Lower East Side
i stopped her right in front of whole foods (try their Terra Stripes and Blues exotic vegetable chips) and was astounded to hear that her fabulous yellow dress is H&M! elegantly combined with Louis Vuitton shoes, and a vintage bag and necklace. Amanda works in fashion PR and was just on her way to do cocktails with friends.
Katie, 26 - Soho
the second publicist i met that day was just on her way to the gym when this bright attention seeking blue dress caught mine. the match was made perfect by her blue eyeshadow and the shoes, a lucky cheapie find at Rainbow. dress is H&M, necklace is a gift that her dad once gave to her mom.
Hilary, 31 - Lower East Side
what would you guess this woman does for a living? a belly-dancer? a green peace activist? - no, she's a bond trader! Her shirt and skirt are by Calypso, the belt is from an antique bazaar and necklaces are from all over.
