Ironically le Smoking doesn’t actually refer to anything pertaining to tobacco or other substances of choice used to inhale; in fact, this french word was created in 1966 by the late yet never-to-be-forgotten Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent.  Though this ground-breaking fashion god pioneered this look nearly a half a century ago, the Tuxedo for women has once again made a comeback in Parisian streetwear today.  Bowties, satin trimmed tailored blazers, and cropped vests are all common occurences in la mode quotidienne.  These pieces don’t need to be worn all together (unless of course you want to go all out!) yet each brings drama and sultry sophistication to any ensemble.  So keep a lookout New York because before long there’s no doubt we’ll be seeing tuxedo suits and jackets washing ashore the banks of the Hudson.  Check out my Smoking tie in La Ment(h)euse!
