FIENDTHURSDAY: LE SMOKING 09 EDITION
For Fall 2009 the spirit of the beloved YSL is heavy, and more potent from last season, perhaps in reaction to his death last year. The industry has had time to digest his passing, and as a result, his influence is wide.
The Fall 2009 season sees this classic reinvented in updated suits and in dresses and blouses with tuxedo detailing. Dolce and Gabanna take the slim, sleek silhouette and cigarette pants and give the look bouyant shoulders. Albino uses the tuxedo detailing in collars on blouses, sack dresses, and blouse/skirt looks, while Antonio Berardi stays close to his inspiration.
