Saint Laurent 'Iconic' Smoking Jacket

Saint Laurent Iconic Smoking Jacket - Lilli Candy and Style Fashion Blog

I've been invited by Farfetch.com to take part in their exclusive  competition "Style is Eternal" that celebrates the opening of "Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal" exhibition at the Bowes Museum.

What Farfetch asks is just to style the iconic Saint Laurent Le Smoking tuxedo jacket, creating a fashion set that only features Saint Laurent items and that is inspired by the designer's famous quote ‘Fashion Fades, Style is Eternal’.

So, here is my entry. As you can see, the smoking jacket is the key element of the set, being a staple item of the wardrobe and a timeless classic garment; while all around, you find four main styles in which you can wear it: office, casual, edgy and elegant. Then, what else can you spot? Just a little hint of my favorite color, red :)

Wish me luck and enjoy the weekend!

xoxo

The coat is gorgeous. These are great and classic options. I always love a beautiful monochromatic look, with a dash of red thrown into the mix. Happy weekend Lilli.

The YSL smoking jacket really is such a iconic piece and I love how you did a classic take in styling it it both up and down. Good luck with the competition Lilli! Have a wonderful weekend.

Glam up your Lifestyle said...

Ah what a completion and your selected pieces are fantastic. Exactly my style. I love YSL and I thought about it, to buy a bag. But my wallet don't agree with my heart ;)
I often enjoy the platform Fafetch. Just these days I order a bag and today they arrived. (Not YSL ;) )
Dear Lilli, I wish you a fantastic 15. August, have a great holiday. Kisses Cla

Hey Lilli.

I haven't been here for a long time. I've been bz with work and new home and I really miss the blogging sphere. Feels good to have some time to catch up on all your blogs! Gonna look through all the posts that I've missed.

I love what you've put together, Lilli. So versatile. I hope you win! I didn't know what a smoking jacket was and had to google it.

Hi Lilli, I do love their famous quote and have always agreed with it! The tuxedo jacket is perfect, i do enjoy wearing an androgynous look but most of all i love pairing a blazer with jeans and heels - it's very chic and sexy so I like your choice of that. Over the knee boots and a blazer look amazing too in the winter and yes that pop of red can make all the difference. Hope you are having a lovely weekend! x
