Dion Lee Designed a Suit Collection for Women

The closet staple has been reinvented

Women’s suiting may have been overlooked by high-end fashion at one time, but in these days of leaning in, the closet staple has never been riper for reinterpretation. Designer Dion Lee, a recipient of the Woolmark Prize for Australia, one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, took to his new counterpart, Woolmark Company, to create SUIT, a 10-piece collection that transcends typical workwear and aims to carry the silhouette from day to night. Inspired by a personal mission to incorporate principles of functional fashion design, craftsmanship and luxury fabrics, Lee laser-focuses on the classic jacket, pairing it with separates in black, navy and white in luxe fabrics like Australian merino wool, Italian wool crepe and Italian cotton. net-a-porter.com; dionlee.com
