Has the suit gone wild or …?
The outfit, personifying respectability and trust for generations, is gradually
transforming from a conservative bastion of security to the face of modernity.
Throughout the last years, stylists have been using suits as a foundation, to
envision a society on the move. From signalling the end of old values and dogma,
to finding ways to let sustainability meet economics; translated from bold
colors and over-the-top combinations, to focusing on reusing garments, rethinking
heritage and reworking styles in a DIY mood. Every aspect in the news was
being expressed in transversal attire on social media, in publications and on
This movement, brought a wave of inspiration for designers to herald a new era
of suit inspired designs. After having seen all the AW23/24 designer shows,
with suits in many shapes and colors, we can conclude that the suit – in its
newly found diversity – is back in the centre of attention.
Yet, has the suit gone wild …?
We think it has signalled a period of radical change, opening doors to a new
design era characterized by soft unlimited creation and innovation.
