As for most womenswear, the women’s suit comes in a vaster array of colours, patterns, silhouettes and materials than the men’s suit. The most common material for men’s ensemble, wool, is also found in the womenswear equivalent, be they two- or three-piece, single- or double-breasted. For women, however, the choice extends beyond the men’s-nodding trouser suit in classic black, stripes or herringbone to skirt suits and dress suits in all sorts of exquisite fabrics and eccentric patterns – allowing for stress-free, sartorially savvy looks for any occasion.
OfV says: Whether you’re a hyper-feminine Jackie O or a dapper Dietrich, invest in a carefully curated selection of vintage women’s suits that mirror your style and purpose. Open for Vintage hosts designs from some of the most prominent women’s suitmakers in fashion history including Giorgio Armani, Jil Sander and Yves Saint Laurent with their classic black, nude and pinstripe numbers; alongside decade-defining designers like Biba and rare vintage statement gems in bold prints. Elevate a classic black vintage women’s suit with a pair of luxurious patent brogues or team a bolder patterned vintage women’s suit with barely-there stilettos. Summer suiting it? Make one of Chanel’s immortal contrast collar nautical vintage skirt suits your vintage wedding suit, or give your office line-up a seasonal update with a vintage trouser suit with cropped bottoms.
At Open for Vintage, we consider everyone as a collector with a desire to possess beautiful things with a story worth living on. Our curated edit of unique and contemporary vintage and pre-owned fashion pieces are hand-picked for their individuality, relevance, and of course, style appeal.
