While there's always place for a classic two-piece in our weekly wardrobe rotation, lately we've found ourselves craving tailoring with a twist, thanks to our favourite street stylers
The many variations of the suit leaves any and every tailoring taste covered, be it an inclination for all-black Margiela pieces and Japanese blazers blown out of proportion, or Italian tailoring nipped in just-so at the waist. Pinstriped, linen, tweed or wool: it bears repeating that a well-fitted two-piece has a perennial place in every closet.
Even so, fashion week attendees managed to give tailoring an unexpected twist this past season. Attending shows across the globe, these savants embodied the proverb "the devil is in the details" while sporting beaded, pleated and befeathered jackets.
A denim suit on the streets of Copenhagen was detailed with raw-edge ruffles cascading down the dark wash sleeves, closely followed by a fringe-trim blazer dress sported with a crisp corp-core button down and sultry thigh-high black boots. In Milan, we found sparkling sets sported by both men and women, while Paris served up a feminine pleated two-piece in soft grey hues. Finally, in New York, Thom Browne ruled the tailored street style scene with signature pattern-clashes and colourful trim.
