suiting can sometimes be perceived as dated, uninspired, boring, but this season, suiting came to the forefront in wonderful collections by jason wu at hugo boss, olivier theyskens at theory, jil sander, stefano pilati at agnona, and these two collections: haider ackermann and christian dior. at the former, it was all about ease, with loose monochromatic looks in earthy shades topped with floor length dusters, boot skimming skirts, fur vests, and wide leather belts. at the latter, color was layered upon core colors black and heather grey and traditional menswear fabrics (wools, tweeds, pinstripes) were mixed with silks and satins in the form of flippy hem skirts and knee dusting scarves. the collections were completely opposite ends of the spectrum, but both were sexy and sophisticated. here’s to the new way to suit.
