The Lazy Suit

There is style in Singapore and it lives in the easy, minimal aesthetic of Sifr. I am completely smitten by their "lazy" series of pants, shorts, and a jacket, all in a comfortable rayon blend, which I have dubbed my "lazy suit" for spring 2012.

I'm infatuated with the idea of stepping out of the house in last night's hair, the white t-shirt I wore to sleep, and slipping on the suede slippers that I wear around the house, looking all elegantly disheveled in my sweatsuit-comfy lazy suit.

I plan on getting all three pieces---jacket, pants, and shorts---in their inky, near-black navy jersey, to wear as a pants suit, a shorts suit, and as separates.

Sifr's Chris John Fussner and Suraj Melwani are inspired by the intricacy & finesse that goes into crafting iconic architecture, music, furniture, and art, and their attention to detail can be seen in the quiet details of this deceptively simple suit. Note the hidden zippers on the sides of the pants and the shorts, and the stitched permanent crease on both bottoms. Spring of 2012, please come soon as I am dying to live in my lazy suit.
