An example is the way in which Sienna Miller (Nikki) in the film “Alfie” brings her partner’s shirt (Alfie starring Jude Law) almost like a negligee.
An androgynous muse and style icon is Tilda Swinton, unique in her alien and versatile beauty, who is able to interpret and dress clothes as if they were part of herself.
The refined style of Lou Doillon always brings something different, hidden in the various facets of her style in which the protagonists are the loafers, suspenders and masculine cut jackets that strengthen her personality and her required profile of brand’s testimonial.
There is also who, as Julia Roberts for Givenchy, becomes simply elegant, wearing a total black suit (except for the neck) with a typically male cut. Something reminds her role in the film “Closer” when she takes pictures and falls in love with what will become her lover.
The style of the Danish model Freja Beha is also unmistakable, from the shots for Saint Laurent to her simple daily outfits.
The real point of reference of the masculine side in women’s fashion has always been the tailleur. The first was packaged in 1885 by the English tailor John Redfern, commissioned by the Princess of Wales. A garment made of stiff fabrics, matched with men’s accessories, from the vest to tie. The tailleur was revolutionized by Coco Chanel, making it more comfortable using the jersey, that turned than into tweed.
Finally it had been revised again in 1966 by Yves Saint Laurent who made the first tuxedo for women.
