The styles are, of course, very cutting-edge…and there is even a “coat with skirt” outfit in the set! The two outfits below are fairly minimalist, especially the all-black one (the blue-and-grey color-block one too, though..), but that red embroidered installation overshadows any outfit you put next to it….
The hunter green metallic sweater is…amazing! It’s extremely difficult to find this color and texture for a top, but a favorite local store did not let me down. The grey sleeveless cape and circle scarf draped low look great, but I wish I could see the full outfit. Yes,this girl is posing as if she is holding hands with the man in the installation- so cute!
Another installation composed of rows upon rows of transparent bubble balls warrants a cool outfit too..right? The white textured manteau with a fur collar is worn with black leggings and ankle boots…and a red printed scarf tied not very low but still showing hair.
This part of the venue has lovely deep red walls…and there are 3 awesome outfits here. This is where the “coat with skirt”outfit is present in the center (involving a fully open beige manteau, brown skirt, red scarf, and brown and beige tall boots), which is my favorite here. There are also 2 nice “coat with pants” outfits, but they are not as unique, of course..
The outfits in this part of the set are quite inventive and cool…first, a slightly more conventional grey and black plaid manteau worn with a pushed-back snood and ankle boots…
now for the coolness- how about a red and white polka dot dress manteau worn with a….YES…hat and scarf set, a rare and rebellious feature of winter manteau styles- and in this case, the hat happens to be a red beret showing off a ponytail through the back!
Another cool style involves an open olive green cardigan and an equally open olive green scarf over a beige turtleneck sweater. The red and green striped scarf on the right is pretty too…
…finally, a conventional black coat features a huge red shawl-like collar which is a bold and attention-getting detail. Love it!
This is one of the bigger sets derived from a photo expo this year…and there are some cool outfits, such as this brown leather coat with leopard print trim and a black scarf loosely draped over red hair….the coolest thing is that this is a photographer taking photos of photos! 🙂
There are two views of the classic look- first, the front view of a gorgeous black trench coat with a metallic circular belt buckle…
..and then the side view of the same outfit, showing the tall boots worn with the coat.
Another black trench coat is worn with a loosely draped purple scarf, black leggings, and black laced-up boots with silver buckles (the classic “urban combat” style).
Part II is coming tomorrow…..
Yes, even though it is not officially winter yet, here is a picture with some snow in it! The woman is walking down a snow-covered staircase in a park in a long black coat which is worn with bright summery colors – pink pants and yellow scarf framing her dark brown hair – and the colors actually cheer up a winter day!
The styles are more casual, but the palace in the background (possibly Golestan? Some of the other palaces in North Tehran look similar) is magnificent! These photos join several awesome outfits from these palaces, including this one..and this one. This beige manteau has a cool keyhole cut-out on the chest and large pleats on the skirt.
Outside, against a wall of tilework, another beautiful outfit appears – a long black and white coat with black leggings and black shoes with thick white soles. These shoes are supposedly popular the last year or so, but I almost never see them with any manteau styles (exception being here).
These styles come from an exhibition dedicated to handmade dolls as a form of art….this is a first here. The styles are quite awesome- for example, here is a woman in a burgundy and grey colorblock tunic made of soft fabric taking a selfie with her daughter in a denim dress with puffy sleeves.
Another selfie from the handmade doll exhibit features a coral manteau with a thin black belt paired with a pale yellow scarf with some flower-print panels. This shade of coral is quite rare in manteau styles.
And one more selfie for good measure – some of the dolls looks somewhat creepy… This looks like a black coat with black and white striped “inserted” sleeves and pockets.
Finally, here is a full length view of an outfit at the same exhibit and the only photo that is not a selfie. It looks like a stunning yellow manteau worn with skinny jeans (or jeggings) cut above the ankles and a fully open scarf through which a huge wave of auburn hair flows proudly- the amount of hair this girl has is phenomenal!
I found a couple of random close-ups…none of which feature a full outfit, but both feature some beautiful scarves and, in the case of the girl below, some gorgeous Northern-style eye make-up. The brown hair flows from BOTH sides of the blue printed silk scarf – now that’s a unique configuration!
Against a gorgeous blue tilework background, the blue flower-printed manteau on the left looks wonderful…while the black manteau worn open over a red top looks contrasting, but strangely enough, the red color of the top matches the girl’s lipstick shades perfectly!
