Role Reversal


WOMEN IN POWER/men as accessories. Le tailleur — the woman’s suit, cut to be a version of a man’s suit, for women looking for status — is definitely out of fashion. The black dress is no longer just about cocktails and seduction. In the work place, it’s professional, elegant and in control — contributing to, rather than trying to streamline itself for, masculine society. And it comes with sartorial nudity — these garments aren’t designed to be accessorized. Unless of course you’re talking about a man in the background. Or at your side. Or at your feet, naked, waiting.
