Attack of the YSL nerds

photo source. I was comforted when I saw this photo of these irresistible nerds. Mostly because on the day I stumbled across this photo, I too happened to be wearing my own version of the uniform above - a pair of clunky Kio Yamato glasses and a voluminous vintage Lanvin cream blouse, with my long hair tied back - but felt a bit more frumpy than this duo looks. I'm not sure that their outfits are so amazing so much as their demeanor is, absolutely charming.

This photo struck me when I first saw it too, not only because the two look so fabulous, but because their stance makes them look like fashionably conjoined twins, like something out of a Jeunet film (maybe they were in the City of Lost Children?).

I'd like to go drinking with them.

You are so right! They are charming. I must confess I am a fan of the white and black combo. But this is something else.

anyone who can wear glasses with that kind of panache and isn't a hipster has my vote!

wasn't this one on the sartorialist a while ago? I think it's great! I'd really want to be able to pull off a look like that!
