In 1966, Yves Saint Laurent first created le smoking: a tuxedo suit for women. Saint Laurent was among the first to propel forward a growing trend in women's fashion--popularized by Coco Chanel of borrowed-from-the-boys clothing and YSL's le smoking pioneered androgynous and minimal styles for women's wear. The suit was captured by Helmut's Newton's lense in one of the most famous fashion photographs in 1975 and the look's paired-down gender-bending sexiness is still incredibly relevant in fashion design today and certainly within YSL's brand. So, we have for you a YSL tuxedo for women from the 2000's. Updated with a nipped in waist and blousy pant legs, the look still screams understated yet powerful sex appeal. Nous adorons le smoking.
*Yves Saint Laurent black tuxedo suit. in a size 38/40. Priced at $850.
