Suits on Sunday.

April 12, 2009
Given that I’m a student (I know, I state this fact irksomely frequently…) and the world’s being in the throws of economic flaccidity, perhaps weekly posts on suits isn’t the most welcome concept in terms of practicality. But – and beware the cliché here – surely this is a time to provide escapism and a touch of sartorial fantasy to repress any anxiety-inducing thoughts/feelings. Move over debts, and welcome the deets.

AbominableThom Browne FW 09

Speaking of escapism, who better to fashion fantasy from cloth than one Thom Browne. In this instance, however, his so-called “eye-rollers”, the zany showpieces, were not so much freakish as just downright silly. This snowflake-and-bunny-patterned Fair Isle shorts suit is most likely not going to motivate you to do anything apart from, perhaps, regress to the emotional age of 5.

Applaudable3.1 Phillip Lim FW 09

Much more to be desired is this double-breasted confection (courtesy of Phillip Lim) with its jagged, deep black detailing in the lapels and buttons and that so saliva-inducing cocoa hue. If you do happen to have any spare change these days, you know where to put it.

More suits next week!
