The Refashioners 2017 – Selmin

Yay! I was hoping a corduroy suit would creep into the mix at some point. (Linen suits, I’m looking out for you too!!)…The Refashioners 2017 - Selmin


Selmin’s corduroy jumpsuit is inspired! This is jumpsuit number 3 so far. (Liz & Gabby both tapped the trend too) and I suspect it won’t be the last. It seems suits lend themselves to becoming jumpsuits! 2 pieces become one.  Simples! But each of them is so different. Led by the source garment and suiting (pun) the style and aesthetic of the wearer perfectly! I bloody love this series!!The Refashioners 2017 - SelminThe Refashioners 2017 - Selmin


Loving the western styling to the back yoke here. The whole thing has a kind of luxe utilitarian feel about it….The Refashioners 2017 - Selmin

    This may be my favorite yet! I love the utilitarian style, and the deep color of the corduroy is beautiful.
