A trouser suit is an elegant, classic and versatile choice for women. You can wear it as a coordinated set or combine the blazer with wide-legged culottes or a maxi dress. The trouser suit for women is one of Gigue’s signature looks that goes back all the way to our very first collections. Discover this season’s trouser suits in rich materials with a sleek and feminine fit in the Gigue collection.
The founder of Gigue, Jo Wyckmans, had a preference for androgynous styles. The trouser suit, combined with a white blouse was one of the designer’s signature looks.
The silhouette appeared in Gigue’s very first collections in various styles, from an elegant white suit in summer to a woollen, pinstripe suite in autumn.
Today, the trouser suit is still included in every Gigue collection. Designer Audrey Wyckmans has carries on her father’s tradition but in her own, personal style. Audrey’s trouser suits are 100% feminine and elegant. They are made from high quality, soft materials with a luxury feel.
Up until about a century ago it was still frowned upon for women to wear suits. When the French actress Sarah Bernhardt appeared on stage in a trouser suit in 1870, it sent shockwaves through Parisian society. Fifty years later, in the Twenties, the trouser suit became a symbol of the women’s suffrage movement.
During the interbellum, Hollywood legends such as Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn started to appear in trouser suits on the big screen and gave the ensemble a glamorous allure.
Starting in the Forties, the trouser suits slowly became an essential part of many a woman’s wardrobe. We can thank the feminist icons and movie stars from the past for today’s elegant trouser suits.
You can style Gigue’s exclusive trouser suits for women in lots of different ways. You can dress your suit up or down and yet always feel stylish. If you wear the trouser suit as a set, you can pair it with an elegant blouse and heels, perfect for an evening out.
