On The Double

-------

Balenciaga's double breasted Resort lookNothing says “alpha female” quite like two rows of buttons. Balenciaga, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Versace—we noticed a sharp uptick in double-breasted power suits in the Resort collections. More surprising, celebrities have taken to the look, too. Kristen Stewart turned up at the Chanel Haute Couture show in a snug quilted jacket fresh off the label’s Cruise runway (paired with barely there micro shorts), and Aimee Mullins worked the Cannes red carpet in a black-and-white Emilio Pucci two-piecer. Designers like Christopher Kane and Band of Outsiders’ Scott Sternberg, meanwhile, offered modern spins on the classic with a Prince of Wales check shift dress and a cute romper, respectively.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite double-breasted looks.
