Tailoring is unbalanced but right on the button
Our hot pick of the latest global goings-on includes off-kilter silhouettes, minimalist grooming accessories, trash-derived treasures and a divine renovation
It’s an age-old belief that beauty lies in perfect symmetry, but on the A/W20 catwalks, it was off-kilter silhouettes that drew the most admiration. For autumn, tailoring was reimagined with an off-centre twist, with coats and blazers fastened around the body using side straps, buckles and belts. Harness the season’s wraparound potential with Louis Vuitton’s tuxedo jacket, which has a doublelayer side strap detail resembling a deconstructed cummerbund, or Dior’s liquid leather outerwear, which boasts an oversized pocket and punky side buckle. Dunhill and Armani have also erred off-centre, proving that your best side for autumn is the one that’s most unbalanced.
