Schiaparelli Couture Fall 2013 – This piece has a utilitarian, militarized aesthetic from the structured jacket, deep pockets and trousers. In the forties, deep pockets were used for air raids in Paris, and women also wore structured suits like the one shown here. The trousers do have a cuff and are wide leg, something that would not be seen in the forties. The deep pockets and military style this look exudes could be inspired by the WWII looks of the forties. 4-1-15
