The most explicit homage looks a good idea like the first fencing jacket I ever owned, right down to the snap closures:
(Though of course my foil jacket had a crotch strap.) If only I had paired it with a tutu for practice.
If snaps aren't enough, add a few buckles for good measure
This next version is embroidered with what I think are bees. Heraldically, bees stand for industrious and indefatigable effort--a good symbol for fencing practice, yes?
Several of the looks draw inspiration from plastrons, I think.
And then there's this, which (if it were in black) would make a very nice coaching jacket. (Note that Chiuri even paired it with very practical sneakers!)
Oh, hey, here we go--black. And with a veil that kinda channels a fencing mask.
