Suits

17/05/2019

No one can deny that wearing a suit makes any woman look absolutely fantastic. The tailored two-piece has been worn since ages ago and it symbolizes freedom, power and very often controversy.

It is said that in 1870 Paris was shocked when actress, Sarah Bernhardt wore a custom-made trouser suit, which she called her boy’s cloths. In 1914, Coco Chanel designed her first suit, a fur-trimmed jacket with a matching ankle-length skirt.

Through years, many designers have created beautiful tailored suits to be worn by women. For example, in 1966 Yves Saint Laurent designed a woman’s formal tuxedo named “Le Smoking”, which is considered as the designer’s most important design.

One can never forget the Chanel pink suit that Jackie Kennedy wore while accompanying her husband, John F. Kennedy to an event in Dallas. Although the president was assassinated that day and the suit was filled with blood, Jackie Kennedy wore it again to the swearing-in of John F. Kennedy’s successor, Lyndon B. Johnson.

In the 80s the suit became the power suit as it featured shoulder pads, decorative buttons and you would see women rocking them in different colours.

Margaret Thatcher’s stylist said that the prime minister used to wear suits mostly because “she was in a man’s world and she had to look the part”.
