From left: Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim
Marc Jacobs presented his take on the classic gray flannel three-piece suit during New York Fashion Week as did Michael Kors—both designed relaxed, slouchy variations on the Eighties working girl look. Alexander Wang took things further into the future with his midriff bearing jacket and thigh-high legwarmers. Over at 3.1 Phillip Lim the cropped jacket was collarless and the trousers high-waisted and loose-fitting. The silhouettes may vary, but the message is clear—the power suit is back.
