^Agreed on items working better as separates, disagree on the boots.View attachment 1478327
If we look at the photography, Hedi's photographs are able to better highlight and capture your gaze onto the model. It feels like the image of the model is sharper than the background. It is subtle, but there is a sense where the model radiates. In this Saint Laurent campaign photo, the model doesn't stand out from the background, and both of them blend together. Perhaps the background choice was a bit too messy and not plain enough, so it feels visually distracting.
Styling-wise, I feel like Hedi has a better intuitive sense of what looks right. His understanding of how people dressed gives him more an ability to style clothing a bit more accurate. This whole look seems okay from afar, but on closer inspection there are a couple of things that throw me off. Why is the model wearing a dress shirt that needs cuff links paired with relaxed fit washed black denim? The fabric of the jacket feels a bit too sleek compared to the jeans. Hedi's fw19 look has a more substantial fabric for the coat and it feels like to meshes better with the washed blues in relaxed fit. The rangers also help bring the look together so it doesn't look too sleek and dressy. The look would be totally weird if rangers were swapped with Jacno 60s.
If you treat Anthony's items as separates, I think it is fine. Cropped peacoat with thinner fabric reminds me of ss13.

The shirt would be nice for people who are looking for that kind of thing...same with the jeans. The only place I would dock marks off is the boots. They don't really look that sexy compared to Hedi's versions of heeled dress boots. It feels a bit rounder and less edgy.
