Introducing Finer Things, a photo series with a playful approach to elusive, glamorous fashion items we’re fixated on right now.
When the power ’80s gave way to the grungy ’90s, the big suit was left
behind. “Let’s be a little gentler now,” said Marc Jacobs in 1992. But
this season, the suit is back. The new silhouette is commanding: big
relaxed jackets, with strong shoulders worn with full, fluid trousers.
Our pick? Céline’s suit in stretch wool. With the jacket’s dropped
shoulders and the front-pleated pant, it’s a masculine-feminine mash-up
that manages to incorporate the best of both decades. Think of it as
David Byrne, the tumble-dried version.
Céline suit, leather shirt, and booties, all available at 870 Madison Ave.; (212) 535-3703.
