Vogue Couturier Design 353, circa 1940s1940s_vogue_cd_353

This is, quite simply, a fabulous suit. It’s simple. It’s elegant. It’s multi-purpose. In sleek charcoal wool 120, it would signal “do not, under any circumstances, mess with me.”  It is fine armor for a trying business meeting. Protective. Absolutely. In black crepe with a black silk satin collar and a floor length skirt, it would quietly personify tuxedo chic at the most formal of affairs. And reference YSL. A favorite. In coral linen, it would command respect at the snootiest ladies luncheon. In navy silk, it would not only ensure the job would be yours, but it would command a salary that yesterday’s CEOs would not sneer at today. Can you live without this suit? It is a suit for precarious times. It will carry you through til better days. Sunshiny days. Happy days. Green days. Indeed.
