‘Le Smoking’ was given a brand new leash of life during the Anne Valérie Hash Fall 2012 presentation.
Several tuxedo-style looks were reinvented as Anne presented bi-colour tuxedo jackets which were paired with slouchy pants to offer up a new silhouette.
Some pants had an asymmetrical slanted line to give the appearance that the pants were falling off the waist.
Collars were detached to further upset the codes of tailoring.
Jumpsuits were also given the ‘Le Smoking’ treatment with my favourite being the slinky black shimmering look with satin lapels.
Bi-colour dresses with gathered details on the hip, chic separates with wrap-around cummerbund-like waistbands and a one-sleeve black velvet red-carpet-worthy look made up the rest of this presentation.
Models walked the runway in platform ankle boots, whilst their hair looked sleek at the front, but purposely messy at the back.
This collection was nonchalant and unexpected with an understated attitude.
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Liv Tyler, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Clemence Posey and Kate Bosworth
