A NEW TUXEDO JACKET

When the late Yves Saint Laurent first presented his "le smoking" or tuxedo suit for women, back in 1966, it caused a great deal of excitement.  

I have been looking around for a tuxedo jacket and I've found H&M's Dinner Jacket, which is from their Spring 2014 collection. 

Black Dinner Jacket from H&M

The jacket is short, even slightly shorter at the back and quite fitted. It is made from a woven fabric with satin lapels, has welt pockets at the front and is buttonless. 


Since Hedi Slimane became creative director at Yves Saint Laurent in 2012, he has revamped the legendary fashion house, giving it a new name, SAINT LAURENT  and a young, modern mood.  Whilst taking inspiration from contemporary fashion influences such as grunge and rock chic, he has retained the essence and tradition of Yves Saint Laurent and most definitely the iconic tuxedo!

Even the SAINT LAURENT stores have been newly refurbished to reflect the new image - see the Sloane Street store in London below.
