I’m so bored with traditional ‘menswear inspired’ suiting for women. And sorry, not sorry, but what fashionistas got into a room and green lit the revival of the 90s over-sized, box-cut blazer? It’s a hard pass for me.
I want something that favors my curves. I want something that is unapologetically female, and I want it in luxe fabrics and I want it for office wear.
‘Hello Jacquemus’ (in my Carrie Bradshaw voice).
French designer Jacquemus must have heard my cry because he created a new FEMALE-form inspired blazer, a pair of coordinating trousers (without pockets, thank you) and a series of fantastic knit blouses I haven’t seen in fashion since Donna Karen; well Donna before ‘Me Too’, not after.
My Summer Suit!
I love this suit, personally I’d style it with a slim, silk camisole in white beneath the draped jacket, and it wouldn’t change the effect.
