On the international catwalks, all the signs are pointing toward power dressing. Practical, because in September it’s all go in the office, too.
Out of the office
A trouser suit is perfect for a day with lots of meetings out of the office. At Bottega Veneta you can show your colours in orange, while Alexander McQueen stands out in petrol. Even the classic pinstripe is just as effective today as it’s ever been – especially when reinterpreted by Etro.
The Louis Vuitton styles are made for managers. The skirt suit is given rock-like embroidery and fringes on the blouse. Or to show just a hint of extravagance, wear the leather pencil skirt by Miu Miu.
In the advertising and social media departments, men wearing unusual suits are very much on trend at the moment. At Etro checks are at the fore, whereas the business look at Prada is rather more youthful. With Emporio Armani you can even don a camouflage bomber jacket. Perfect for strategy presentations.
