This photo, captioned: "Off Chapel St, Melbourne" is from the internationally acclaimed blog The Sartorialist, which publishes stunningly photographed images of fashionable people on the street from all over the world.
Here as a guest for Fashion Week, The Sartorialist himself, Scott Schuman has been interviewed by Melb newspaper The Herald Sun about the fashion difference between Sydney and Melbourne women:
Asked to compare the two cities' styles, the sartorial snapper said
Sydney dressers were a step ahead of Melburnians when it came to giving
their outfits a distinctly Australian flavour. He said Melburnians were chic but needed to give their style an extra unexpected twist.
He spent last weekend in Melbourne before flying to Sydney for Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. "I think they are different but I think Sydney is just a slight step ahead in incorporating the Australianism," he said. "They are a bit more sexy . . . it reminds me kind of like Rio."
Schuman, who noticed Melbourne's penchant for the dark side, said all-black worked only if the garments were varied."If you are not going to wear colour you really have to mix texture and proportion," he said.
