Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 3. Le Smoking

In 1966 Yves Saint Laurent introduced “le smoking,” which became a synonymous symbol for the designer and the brand itself. The sexier interpretation on menswear for women brought new codes to women’s daily lifestyle. Spring/Summer 2013 runways were full of inspirational “smokings.” Hedi Slimane new director of Saint Laurent showed one of the best luscious fitted jackets that only the house of YSL was once a legend of. Pure Saint Laurent DNA was written all over the collection, reminding us of how seductive a tuxedo can actually be for a woman. Raf Simons new director of Dior did not leave the roots of the house behind as well. He interpreted the feminine suits that were tailored so impeccably, just as Mr. Christian Dior had once done when running his brand. Stella McCartney opted to present a slouchier version of the iconic smokings, giving it a more athletic and street style kick.
