Piecing Together Spring’s New Tailored Looks
Photographed by Hanna Tveite
Synonymous with precision and coordination, the suit can be an intimidating sartorial prospect. Make it your own by looking beyond traditionally matched sets to embrace a piece-wise approach to tailored looks. Whether you’re drawn to the sharp, tuxedo-inspired silhouettes of Pallas and Brandon Maxwell or the softer but no less refined shapes favored by Protagonist and Loewe, the spring collections offer a myriad of fresh and flexible ways to suit yourself.
The key to pulling off a short suit? The right shorts: neither too tight nor too loose, too long nor too short. Edun creative director Danielle Sherman offers a polished middle ground with the help of satin-finished crepe and a high-waisted profile that from the back is easily mistaken for that of a knee-length skirt. Skip the jacket in favor of an equally abbreviated top half, such as sleeveless layers cinched with a wide belt.
My style very much leans toward the masculine, but I think I am feminine in it. I like the feminine body in masculine shapes.Charlotte Rampling
Even a dress that celebrates a lack of structure—with fluttering short sleeves and deliberately raw edges—takes on a new level of poise when worn over a white button-up and well-fitted trousers. Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson leaves his mark on both top and bottom in the form of a brushstroke: his bold, playful reimagining of the tuxedo stripe.
