There’s nothing like seeing a thought provoking suit style to set your sartorial sensibilities ablaze. Here, is a round-up of some suit styles that I’ve come across which are a constant reminder that formal attire needn’t be a bore.
Alexander McQueen: I adore the styling, the pairing of the earring with the hand painted Mughal prints are extraordinary, while the sculpted shoulders ( a signature McQueen look) offer a glow of incomparable regality.
Tom Ford:I simply can’t get enough of the man’s vision! Bringing sexy-back to suiting is by no means an easy feat and yet Mr.Ford has clearly risen and surpassed the requirements of said challenge. Here an elegant fit, well-proportioned shoulders and a rather unique textile effect on what is presumably jacquard or silk creates a phenomenal evening jacket.
Ralph Lauren: There’s something rather exquisite about Ralph Lauren’s suit cut that tippy-toes on the fine line between the 1940s and the modern age. The way this sleek suit jacket nips in at the waist framed by the tapered trouser gives me all kinds of glamour. Perfect for weddings and dinners.
Dolce&Gabbana: While I’d be damned before purchasing anything from the designers whose opinions on the lgbt community and women’s weight have infuriated a vast majority of people ( myself included) it would be total foolery to not acknowledge the immaculate cut of their suits. Appearing in a wide variety of textiles from damask to satin, the designers fit and structure is like no other. This particular number would be perfect for dinner at Nobu or even the Opera? Knowing me It would even work for the super market!
Balmain: Nicki said it first ‘I make him buy me BALMAIN’, and there’s a reason! Olivier Rousteing does not dress basic whoes* so if you’re looking for conventional – kindly exit the stage. Military details, embellishment, gold and silk. Jackets for everyday and every time!
