Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 PM) : 

The embroidery on that is incredible. What workmanship!


Blogger luccagrl said ... (7:22 PM) :

Blogger Pepa Xavier said ... (7:59 PM) : 

WOW!! I love it so much!


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

You are a photographic genius but ENOUGH with the cell phones!!!!!!!!! Doesn't anybody realize how gauche that looks. It removes the presence form a person's character completely..and deters from there otherwise fine sense of style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:16 PM) : 

the detail on the jacket is to diiee foorrr.


Anonymous Grace said ... (8:25 PM) : 

Ironic and beautiful. Wonderful work, as always.

That's beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 PM) : 

Fabulous shot. Nothing said could possibly enhance such a great piece such as this.


Anonymous ying said ... (10:17 PM) : 

amazing! that looks like an old jacket for Chinese emperor.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 PM) : 

this is not only gorgeous but very intriguing. that look on her face has a devilish feel, she's rather intimidating, i love this shot.


Anonymous Valerie said ... (11:25 PM) : 

What a stunning portrait, I love it.


Anonymous theAlbanian said ... (11:49 PM) : 

One of your best shots,or the Japanese robe made me say that!


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (12:07 AM) : 

Wow. What a stunning photograph. I wonder if it's an old Japanese kimono that's being re-purposed as a robe or coat? Or something completely else? What a nice surprise. Thanx Sart!


Blogger May Kasahara said ... (12:20 AM) : 

perfect + the hair!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 AM) : 

Great look...east meets west, or modern civilization and ancient times intermingle in such wonderful form. This shot is devoid of any other influence beside the black background. This subject speaks all alone, by itself. Just fantastic, Sart!


Blogger Daphne said ... (12:59 AM) : 

someday you are gonna have my photo on your blog!

nice blog!


Anonymous Greg said ... (1:24 AM) : 

Nice look!


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

The photographer is so fine!

The energy in how the fabric is being pulled reminds me of old Chinese prints. It's amazing how the ancient is so alive in this modern cell phone picture.

The designer logo on the wrist band resembles an asian character and becomes part of the theme.

The gorgeous soft red color goes so well with his skin.



Blogger catherine said ... (2:27 AM) : 

love the mood, the attitude like a child and the closet empire!


Blogger Pamela said ... (2:46 AM) : 

i love japanese kimonos


Blogger Marquis de Lannes said ... (3:35 AM) : 

Une très belle photo!
Bravo! Scott!!


OpenID soralunii said ... (3:38 AM) : 

beautiful shot! i just wish there was also one full length, I'm curious to know what pants (if the coat is not very long) and shoes he was wearing with this


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 AM) : 

a stunning picture! BEAUTY itself


Blogger pika said ... (5:00 AM) : 

i love this - the fabric is so tactile and visually interesting. beautiful workmanship indeed.


Blogger Chama said ... (5:07 AM) : 

It is a piece of art on this charming guy!


Anonymous luise said ... (5:28 AM) : 

doesn't look japanese to me, more like tibetan...
awesome shot!


Anonymous dramaqueen said ... (6:08 AM) : 

Oh, this is just beautiful!
The colors, the embroidery, the light, his quirky smile...

I'm not an expert on fashion, but your work gives me inspiration and joy every day. Thank you, Sart!


Blogger David said ... (6:45 AM) : 

Makes for a great photo' but....


Blogger Stela Roibás said ... (6:46 AM) : 

Great light and colours.
I like the mixture of moderm items and the clasic good


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:47 AM) : 

I agree with Luise, its NOT Japanese. Definitely, Chinese or Tibetan.......

None-the-less, this is a great shot Sart! The cheeky expression is priceless!


Blogger Mad Hatter said ... (8:01 AM) : 

love that pattern


Blogger cami falcão said ... (8:42 AM) : 

this is fun!


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (8:48 AM) : 

Beautiful fabric - like a 3D tattoo. I'd wear this when I entertain at home. I'd even love this fabric as a quilt for my bed. I know it's gotta be silk. Uruwashii!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 AM) : 

I don't know what the rest of her looks like, but it looks like she is wearing a bedspread.


Blogger Scott W said ... (9:22 AM) : 

Exquisite. Lovely contemporary portrait.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 AM) : 

It is a Chinese Qing dynasty court robe.


Blogger Hyakoukoune said ... (11:07 AM) : 



Blogger crowsfeet said ... (11:14 AM) : 

...and this is why we all keep coming back.

This is the first time I have actually liked the cell phone in the shot. The man and the garment are breathtaking, but the cell phone creates the anachronistic irony (so well understood and underscored by that devastating just-budding smile!) that provides the brilliant wordless caption.

There are those shots you post that are about the clothes and their wearer and that is all and that is enough. This is not one of those shots.

I am enchanted.

Blogger Tiny and elegant said ... (1:24 PM) : 

What a beautiful Chinese embroidery! It looks like it's from the antique shop.


Blogger CW said ... (1:59 PM) : 

Traditional Japanese kimono.


Blogger lilalebkuchenherz said ... (2:29 PM) : 

i have a scarf like that. very authentic.

Gorgeous photo.


Blogger = MARIA said ... (9:54 PM) : 

beautiful image


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:15 AM) : 

I believe this shirt must came from Bhutan. Especially the embroidery print, very Bhutanese..


Blogger heyais said ... (12:40 AM) : 

i love this photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:54 AM) : 

It is either Chinese or Tibetan, not Japanese. Notice the dragon symbols. And it's a man, not a woman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:44 AM) : 

This is quite amazing, leaves me (almost) speechless. Does anyone have his phone number?


Blogger Gillian said ... (7:56 PM) : 

the phone seems like such an anachronism.... he's in his traditional cultural getup, but talking on a cellphone. interesting ;)


Anonymous Girlosophy said ... (1:05 AM) : 

Exquisite Tibetan piece, worn with absolute authority. This is TradMod!

great kk!


Blogger Buy said ... (2:36 PM) : 

I love the androgyny and ambiguity, as reflected in the comments. Man? Woman? Chinese? Tibetan? Bhutanese?

I can't stop coming back to look. It's the kind of photo I'd like to have, in a silver frame on my desk. something to take me outside my thoughts for a moment when i look at it.



Blogger mar said ... (6:20 AM) : 

cozy, chic . . . great colors


Blogger Poivre Monkey said ... (4:31 PM) : 

Such a style


Blogger smellyrhinostudio said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Something do you say, I don't know! Sexy and fresh


Blogger Aedín said ... (6:57 PM) : 

In this fotograph, the guy looks like a copy of the painting Madame Matisse. Briljant, but so freaky!
They even have the same facial expression!


Blogger Margaret said ... (12:03 AM) : 

oh, beauty. this is revolutionary.


Blogger sook said ... (11:55 AM) : 

Oh my god!I met him the other day in Milan. He is Korean designer.
