To showcase her first-ever collaboration with bespoke tailoring label Doyle Mueser, Tara Subkoff drew upon her penchant for noir. “I am a huge film noir fan and also a Hitchcock fan,” she says. “I wanted to make the film inspired by old movies, but with a modern unexpected twist—the same concept as Imitation of Christ.” Her film starts with gunshots and a man following a bad guy down Mulberry Street (“one of the few remaining places that can look like old New York from the old movies”), but as it turns out, the bad guy is actually a woman. Of course, she’s well disguised in Imitation of Christ x Doyle Mueser’s vamped-up take on menswear (part of Imitation of Christ’s Fall 2012 collection).
“This is a very old-school couture opportunity for a woman to get to experience the full tradition of making an appointment, coming in privately to have a personal fitting with myself and Jake Mueser, and picking out whatever fabric and lining they want and which jacket, pant, skirt, or short looks the best for their body type and lifestyle,” says Subkoff. “The designs are templates for suggested styles that, to me, are the most flattering suit shapes for women—very inspired by Helmut Newton photographs, which always depicted sexy and strong sophisticated women who seemed powerful.” Items can be ordered by private appointment with Doyle Mueser in NYC. However, on June 7, they are hosting a party from 7-9 p.m. at Against Nature (159 Chrystie St., NYC), open to anyone who wants to come down and view the collection and is interested in making a private appointment for a fitting and to place a made-to-measure order. Style.com has an exclusive first look at the film, The Suits, below.
