acme le smoking
I found a cream silk blazer today that I really like. Having it on is like pajamas- so comfortable. Its great I think to have the contrast of something fluid in material with a more severe cut & structure. A good example of that is the SSWTR canvas 'birkin' bag. I was initially so amused by it because it seems like an ACME fashion item.. doofy sort of (I bought one, by the way.)
At any rate, I think this jacket fits that category. It takes its styling cues from the iconic le smoking jacket by YSL which is angular, modern, & somewhat hallowed in its stylistic innovation, but does so in a comfortable, draping way. Perhaps you might wear it while smoking your bubble pipe.. it is amusing & easy to wear, and I like that.
