The New Suit

Embrace the New Suit Silhouette For Highly Fashionable Business

From Stella McCartney to DVF, Hermès to The Row; designers are embracing the suit in new, ultra feminine, flattering ways.

The suit is a firm fashion favourite. Sophisticated, sexy and chic – the suit is synonymous with power dressing.  Yet today’s suits with a focus on clean lines and refined cuts, don’t need to be a flashback to 80’s ‘Wall Street’. In fact no woman’s wardrobe is complete without one…

Note: Be sure to place a strong emphasis on the fit, quality and silhouette… the perfect suit will slim and flatter your body in spectacular ways – you may never want to take it off!

Stella McCartney

At Stella McCartney (pictured above & below) tailoring is always a matter of priority. Honing her skills on Saville Row for Edward Sexton, her father’s tailor for a number of years – McCartney has become renowned for her precision cuts. Distinctly feminine and wearable, McCartney’s trousers and tuxedo jackets are cut sharp yet also soft and relaxed to exude comfortable allure.

The Row

Taking its name from London’s historic Savile Row, The Row offers a modern directional take on traditional tailoring. The brainchild of Style icons, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, The Row’s aims to provide an updated concept of bespoke tailoring and modern day classics.

Carine Roitfeld’s Shock Departure from Vogue Paris

In news that is certainly set to shock the magazine world, Carine Roitfeld (above right) has resigned from Vogue Paris. Having been with the highly coveted fashion bible for over ten years, Roitfeld will leave at the end of January 2011. Of her departure, Jonathan Newhouse, ceo of Condé Nast International, has said:

“It is impossible to overstate Carine’s powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing. Under her direction, Vogue Paris received record levels of circulation and advertising and editorial success.”

It is not currently known who will replace Roitfeld.  This will be announced in the coming weeks.

Erdem Pre-Fall 2011/12

Erdem is a personal favourite of mine. I love everything about the label – the use of exquisite lace, the divine floral embroidery and those unbelievably beautiful prints.

Erdem has just unveiled his first Pre-Fall collection. Creating ladylike shapes and new prints, this collection is ultra chic, feminine and simply put… to die for! Designer Erdem Moralioglu, achieves the incredible prints by capturing the images digitally, then manipulating them, before photocopying them. He described the collection as “filled with pieces that can be put together or taken apart and worn every day of the year.” My favourite looks from the Erdem Pre-Fall collection are pictured right…
