When Allie Teilz decided to design her own line of suits with rock ‘n’ roll swagger, she did not lack for famous references. David Bowie, Annie Hall, Jackie Kennedy, Bianca Jagger all roll off her tongue as major influences for her new collection, which launches Nov. 16 on Allieteilz.com. But in her opinion, no one made the suit more powerful than Grace Jones.
“That’s the first image of a woman in a suit that seared through my brain — the cover of ‘Nightclubbing,’” says Tielz of Jones’ unforgettable 1981 album cover by Jean-Paul Goude with her flat-top hair cut, unlit cigarette dangling from her lips and plunging black suit. “When she’s in Armani with big shoulder pads? It’s untouchable.”
