Le Smoking

Portrait of Yves Saint Laurent by Archie Parker, 1963

Yves Saint Laurent was one of the first designers to champion mens-wear for women, and to blend traditional masculine cuts with feminine touches. Le Smoking, Yves’ iconic tuxedo jacket has remained in vogue ever since it was introduced in the 1966 collection, and is a staple of any woman’s wardrobe. I have a couple versions of le smoking in my closet, but my favourite is undoubtedly the rich forest green corduroy by Armor Jeans (the Le Chateau house brand). It’s a pretty basic masculine cut, but the shiny corduroy texture and rich colour gives it a feminine touch. Pair it with skirt or pants, heels or masculine flats (mix and match away!) and you’re guaranteed to have a fabulous outfit!
