Gentlemen’s Club

In the 80s and early 90s fashion gave us the power suit. Grungy, androgyny and oversized, its shape-hiding proportions are generally considered to be for the boys. History is repeating itself—but this time the ladies are getting in on the action. The new suits are not simply a feminine take of the staid, navy, pinstripe male version. At MAISON MARGIELA there was a loosening of norms in the house’s soft, fluid, almost flowing silhouettes. CHRISTIAN DIOR offered the perfect denim jumbo jacket and jeans combo that could go from casual Friday to weekend warrior.
