SUIT UP

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Shop -

The seeds were sown in the ’30s when Mar­lene Di­et­rich wowed in Morocco, but ever since Yves Saint Lau­rent un­leashed Le Smok­ing in 1966 the tuxedo suit has been short­hand for fem­i­nine power and sex. Flashier ensem­bles may have taken the spot­light in re­cent years, but thanks to Saint Lau­rent’s new cre­ative di­rec­tor Hedi Sli­mane, the fo­cus is back on tai­lor­ing again. There’s noth­ing sex­ier than a woman tak­ing charge in a pow­er­ful black suit, one hand in her pocket, stand­ing slouched just so. Take a bold step and wear it with com­pletely noth­ing un­der­neath and a flash of scar­let on the lips.
