I love the tailoring on this VERY beautiful suit. Any curvier and she wouldn't be pulling off the masculine look obviously…the watch, neutral make-up etc. Love this photo. Did you ask her to flip her collar? Just curious.
I love the structure and tailoring. For me, Paris is the most exciting week of the Fashion Week simply because I get to see more clean, modern and architectural design like this among French designers (or designers who showcase in Paris).
i have fallen in love once again shhhhh…dont tell my wife…thats why i prefer to design women clothes over men, they can wear abosuletly anything and look just marvelous, hell i want this suit! (those covered buttons wow)almost wish fall was just beginning. I will be making a doublebreasted kahki blazer really soon! thanks for the inspiration once again!
She (Ms. Astrid Munoz?), with her lithe architecture and quintessentialist style, absolutely expresses the sartorial elegance of the new 21st Century Minimalism. A purist designer/model's worldly less-is-more un-black anti-uniform. She is both protected and fiercely provocative: sheathed in a buttoned-down, collar-up, urbane suit; sculpted as a warmly tactile, double-breasted, urban body armor.
I want her (or perhaps a lookalike Jennifer Beals) to star in my developing novel/screenplay "The Woman in the Gray Flannel Suit" — a re-gendered 2010+ update of Sloan Wilson's still-influential 1950s book/film "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit".
PS: Fabulous photo. But please Sart, what shoes would "Astrid" be wearing?
That is the definition of feminine dynamism! The way this woman is standing and looking is impressively strong and confident. The collar of the blazer is perfectly supported! i love the light on her shoulders…
If I had seen her on the street that day, my heart would have ached for two or three days. Some designs, postures (and eyes) make the mind thrill with longing, and this one's got it. Sometimes beauty transcends "hotness" or status and awakens a great hope for the future. I want a world in which all women can feel this confident and free.
Finally, something that looks good and makes sense. So much of what you show is – "the kookier the better", which is not necessarily better. ait looks a bit trashy and desperate for attention. OK – I'm 61 yo, still hip, but appreciate this suit that has some semblance of order and style.
When I was a little girl I had a fantasy in which I was just like this when I grew up. The focus of the fantasy was a great pantsuit (I pictured a green 1980's Dior – don't ask). I was a fashion industry lawyer(!) This is the real embodiment of my fantasy.
