Traditional suiting is beautiful and an eternal style staple but it doesn’t mean it can’t also be fashion forward when it wants to be. This suit is something I was planning to wear to Fashion Week this year for the very fact it turned the concept of a suit into something that had a little more drama, and had a little more impact. The ruching detail on both the jacket and cropped pants give it a distinct point of difference and really steers the suit silhouette into something more modern and contemporary. While the statement sleeves, with its voluminous silhouette once again adds an element of theatre to this whole look.
As I was already working with such a striking suit I knew that my accessories couldn’t be too over the top. They had to be strong but also not too overpowering. I decided on a vibrant red Dior bag to help add a further pop of colour and add a more classic element to offset the edgy nature of the pants and jacket. A pair of Bottega Veneta heels help ground the look while gold Rayban frames are the perfect full stop to this ensemble.
