Petite Couture Precision from Pallas
Paris-based Pallas has been honing its tailoring expertise since the 1960s. The family-owned atelier, which has developed prototypes for the likes of Celine and Balenciaga, takes a “chic minimal” approach to the tuxedo jacket, offering versatile variations of le smoking in seasonless wool crepe. Each precise piece is assembled by one tailor, from the hand-sewn lining to the covered buttons.
