In the glorious space between James Bond and Austin Powers lies Etro’s suave and irreverent leopard-print velvet jacket ($2,160).
Balenciaga alum Martine Rose’s suits are tailored with an intentional sloppiness—this rhinestone-encrusted set features a wide-shouldered jacket over relaxed fit trousers (price upon request).
