1967 Yves Saint Laurent Le Smoking Tuxedo Black Pants Jacket Suit Ensemble

About

First created in 1966 by famous couturier Yves Saint Laurent, the "Le Smoking" tuxedo suit for women was the first of its kind to earn attention in the fashion world and in popular culture. The silhouette pioneered long, minimalist, androgynous styles for women, as well as the use of pantsuits in modern-day society. Yves Saint Laurent was seen by many as having empowered women by giving them the option to wear clothes that were normally worn by men with influence and power. The jacket is cut skinny and sexy with long,lean sleeves. I love the white mock-sleeves and french-cuffs! The pants are equally as flattering with an hourglass high-waist and tuxedo-trimming down the sides. Yves Saint Laurent recognized the power and the beauty of the youth revolution, and created clothing that reflected that. Pants, he understood, were the direction of womenswear.
