Think borrowed from the boys, the Yves Saint Laurent smoking jacket is reimagined for Spring 2013 into new sexy streamline proportions for day and evening. In sleek whites, stark blacks and striking crimsons and unusual tailored fabrics of suede and satin. Some versions like Stella McCartneys' were full and slouchy while others like Christian Dior's were sleek and tailored. At Lanvin and Ralph Lauren suits were redefined in bright crimson.
Experts featuring this trend include New York Magazine "Le Nouvelle Smoking", Saks Fifth Avenue "Enlightened Suit", Style.com "Alpha females", Vogue "The Smoking", and Bloomingdale's "Suit Case".
