If I had to choose one outfit to wear everyday for the rest of my life it would be FOR SURE « Le Smoking ». These days a well cut suit is an essential in a women’s wardrobe. When you wear it, it gives you that very Parisian touch… that certain « Je ne sais quoi ».
Let’s talk a little bit about his history, “Le Smoking“ suit for women was created by Yves Saint Laurent. He first showed the new tuxedo as part of his autumn/winter “Pop Art” collection in 1966 and it was one of the most important collection of his career. Over the decades, “Le Smoking“ has been transformed many times and in many ways while always keeping the spirit of the original design. Saint Laurent himself reinterpreted his concept multiple times, creating tuxedo inspired dresses, skirts and shorts while reworking the lapels or buttons on the jacket. This androgynous style was and still is daring and chic
For my first day at Paris Fashion Week I decided to wear a suit, the inspiration behind this look is obvious, but I pretty much broke the classic codes. I went with a silk black large pants that I paired with this amazing fuchsia tuxedo jacket. And to add some more freshness to this classic play on masculine/feminine I wore my floral design tights.
« For a woman, Le Smoking is an indispensable garment with which she finds herself continually in fashion, because it is about style, not fashion. Fashions come and go, but style is forever. » – Yves Saint Laurent
