Dsquared Velvet Tuxedo Blazer
Dsquared’s on the money blazer takes two of the season’s hottest trends for men and blends them into a sophisticated separate that will make you the toast of the night this party season.
The autumn/winter fashion weeks saw a wide range of designers push velvet within their collections, including the likes of Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith. However, where Dsqaured’s offering stands apart from the rest is through the incorporation of AW12’s favourite hue, burgundy.
Channelling the label’s ‘Italian made, Canadian designed’ ethos, this blazer combines classic tuxedo design with modern detailing to create a fashion forward piece that will add a dapper air to all of your evening looks. Held together by a single button fastening, this blazer has a slightly more casual feel, which is further complemented by softness of the velvet.
Dsquared’s signature attention to detail comes in the form of contrasting black-silk lapels and trims to the pockets and buttons. Featuring hallmark chest and front flap pockets, this blazer also has three internal pockets for all of your event essentials.
A crisp, well-tailored white shirt is the perfect accompaniment to such a strong statement blazer. As shown in the pictures below, try pairing with a black bow tie in order to match the trims and help tie your whole look together. A black shirt is also an option for those looking to add depth, allowing the velvet’s rich, bold hue to truly shine against a dark backdrop.
Priced at £850, this blazer is a superb option for anyone looking to add some serious trend driven style to their winter wardrobe. This Dsquared blazer is available over at Selfridges now.
