Androgynous madness

Lady in… suit is dancing with me 

The theme of menswear in womenswear was quite the trend this September. Chanel–along with Public School, Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, and others–featured androgynous looks down the SS15 runway. The most notable “comme des garcons” look in the Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 collection was the masculine tweed suit as it was both quintessentially Chanel and 21st century at the same time.

In the Roaring Twenties, Coco Chanel brought the tweed suit to women as a means to liberate women’s bodies from the sartorial shackles of the time. By freeing women from the cage-like corset, she strove to encourage women to be more like men in dress and lifestyle. The masculine silhouette of the tweed suits in the SS15 collection is a clear allusion to this old school Chanel idea from the 20s, but not without its own contemporary spin. Whereas Coco Chanel’s suit jacket met at the waistline, Lagerfeld pulled the bottom of the suit jacket down several inches below the waist and widened the width of the pant leg. Such a move satisfies current style affinities since loose-fitting apparel has been quite the rage as of late.
