WOMEN F/W 2018 - ISSUE #6

A Clearer Head, a Lovelier Outlook

Formal and elegant, yet absolutely comfortable, the Davide Cenci Dal 1926 collection is for the woman who’s always on the run

Also called a power suit, the pant suit once solely associated with the male world crosses over to a women’s wardrobe, and goes past office and meeting hours. It has become cool and ultra-feminine, an outfit to mix-and-match with accessories that adapt it to day or evening through subtle changes that personalize it even more. You do remember the master of French style, Yves Saint Laurent? A fashion innovator who in 1966 made a scandal with Le Smoking—“if I could keep just one garment it would be the tuxedo”—making it one of the most sensual outfits of all time. He did it with a suit much resembling men’s formal wear, but adapted to entirely feminine forms that highlight the silhouette. Shall we say, a revolutionary act in a time in history when pants were considered inappropriate if worn by a woman? Perhaps. A symbol of rebellious women, elegant and sophisticated, as early as Coco Chanel, Marlene Dietrich, and Greta Garbo, it became a silent means of expressing control (just think of the saying “who wears the pants”). Davide Cenci Dal 1926 sends this message with a stretch wool single-breasted jacket, in a windowpane fabric with burgundy and rust-colored stripes on a blue background. The long lapels lengthen the figure and emphasize the shoulders, making the waist the focal point. The pants are bellbottoms, but the suit also comes with a straight pant. The single-ply cashmere V-neck sweater is simple, but with some embellishing thanks to pleats that hug the hips. The suede pumps have a high but comfortable heel. The options for accessorizing are endless for the woman that steps out in the morning with her planner brimming with appointments, going through the day until dusk, juggling meetings and commitments. Then all she has to do is switch a purse or her shoes, and still staying dressy, cross the city to go anywhere. The important thing? Having a clear head, to find the path to where everything is lovelier.
