A few days ago, watching Bill Cunningham's videos, I came upon one named "A Stretch of Leg".
Mr Cunningham accurately identifies the urban signature look of the era: a long stretch of leg, covered with skinny trousers or opaque tights, finished by ankle boots.
As popularized mostly by Balenciaga, Kate Moss and the Paris Vogue team.
It's indeed every city girl's uniform from New-York to Paris and I'm no exception.
Today with the rain going strong, errands to run, my favorite shopping spots to check, I gave into this no brainer silhouette: a big army green parka, skinny trousers and boots.
I like how this look puts the legs, the walk in focus. At one point, Bill Cunningham evokes spider legs to illustrate his first impressions on this look and I find the parallel quite poetic, cities full of women with long black spider legs.
