“Surprising takes on tailoring have always been part of my design lexicon.”
This glen plaid suit debuted on the Spring 1989 runway, worn by Marie-Sophie Wilson. Designed as a new take on the three-piece suit, the look is rendered in a classic, menswear-inspired glen plaid. Its restrained black-and-white color palette accentuates the centerpiece of this look—a dramatic strapless jacket. “The mix of something timeless and something unexpected is a hallmark of American style,” Michael says. Worn with coordinating trousers and a relaxed blazer draped over the shoulders, the sophisticated glamour of this look stands the test of time.
