Le Costume

2 years ago by

I don’t keep my love for suits a secret. I tend to shout about it to anyone who will listen. Even if they are two feet away and shouting is not necessary, I will still shout because I am that enthusiastic about suits for women (and men), but right now we’re talking about suits for women.

I want all women to embrace a suit from time to time, dare I say, when it suits them (I’ll happily put a dollar in the pun jar for that one, it was just too good to resist).

Why do I want to put every woman in a suit?

Because I believe it is the most sensuous outfit a woman can wear. Your femininity blossoms when you’re in a suit. Don’t believe me? Believe Yohji Yamamoto who said, “the more a woman hides from her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence. A pair of brilliant cut cotton trousers can be more beautiful than a gorgeous silk gown.”

My sentiments exactly.

  • The sentiment is shared – who doesn’t love a good suit! I’ve been drawn to l’ecole des femmes’ suits… actually now that I think about it, it’s a romper style suit. Pretty cool concept! The cut-out suit you featured above is quite unique. I haven’t seen anyone on the street wear it!

  • I really enjoy that the model in this video is allowed to repose in her poses.

    So many model videos have the model rushing from pose to pose and they end up looking a bit like the shirtless, methed up guy on the street corner who can’t stop moving.

  • “A pair of brilliant cut cotton trousers can be more beautiful than a gorgeous silk gown” I love this sentence. Suit always has a big part in my heart.

  • Wish I could wear a suit and look good…
    not everyone has the right body shape to wear a suit.
