Tux Appeal


The pre-fall shows continue to roll out: We’ve added Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, and later today we’ll be publishing Alexander Wang’s pre-fall ’11 collection. Wang’s famous for wearing his hallmark stretched-out T-shirt to even the occasional black tie gala, but for the ladies, he’s proposing a more traditional formalwear—the tux. His slouchy take on the menswear staple was shown with a white turtleneck (above center). He’s not the only one offering gender-bending women’s tuxedos, either. Armani showed them for both his eponymous and his Emporio collections (that’s the GA tux, above right), and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey had slinky his-and-hers versions (hers, above left) at Burberry Prorsum‘s presentation last month. And at Reed Krakoff and Jason Wu, the designers tweaked tradition by cutting out a piece: Krakoff (below left) lost the shirt, while Wu (below right) blew up the bowtie and nixed the jacket.

    I am still loving the tux look. I actually like it even more now than last season as it suddenly moved from trend to classic.
