When you think of a woman’s trouser suit you think poor fitting style, cheap material prone to creasing and boring corporate styles. However, as predicted in the the SS & AW17 shows, there hasn’t been a time we haven’t seen the suit out and about and styled in a way that Miranda Priestly would be proud of.
The AW17 catwalk included everything from boldly patterned pieces to more conventional creations with a dramatic twist. Oversized and relaxed were the main attraction with the conventional tight fit being thrown out of the bag.
Here are some of our favourite suit looks from AW17:
Max Mara AW17
Max Mara channelled the eighties with the oversized business pantsuit, pairing with lace and leather accessories.
Celine kept it straight edge with a fitted blazer and boyfriend style trouser suit in Autumnal colours.
Victoria decided bigger was better and opted for oversized blazers, flowy trousers and colour block additions to give power to your walk.
Jil Sander AW17
Jil went clean cut with long neutral style blazers complimented by cropped high waisted trousers.
Luvon by Liu Lu
Liu lu is a Chinese designer who left her family at sixteen to explore the world, after traveling extensively in Europe she settled down in New York to pursue a degree in Fashion design and was awarded the gold thimble award from the Parsons school of Design in 2006. One of her pieces from her senior collection was shown in SAKS on 5th Avenue that year. Her pieces are created for a woman who has a new attitude towards life, dresses powerful and loves the world around her, a woman who prides herself in being financially independent and socially responsible. We saw this within her brand and selected a few pieces that we think represent a powerful woman.
