Among the many hero pieces unveiled in Demna Gvasalia's historic and ultra-zeitgeisty Balenciaga Couture debut is an elegantly contoured tuxedo that references one owned by Cristóbal himself (price upon request).
For Gucci's 100th anniversary collection, Alessandro Michele reprised a red velvet tuxedo from the archive unveiled by then-creative director Tom Ford in fall 1996. Look familiar? It's the one that, as Michele said, “made Gwyneth Paltrow famous” (jacket, $3,600, and pants, $1,300).
Bow tie, pocket square, cummerbund… Add a pair of ombré-tinted, gold-frame Cartier shades to your list of mandatory black-tie accessories ($1,195).
Custom-neckwear label Lindman New York can make just about any collar accessory you can dream of. Need a midnight blue tie? Why not add sequins ($150)?
