Shoulders are back, for better or worse. (It all depends on how you wear them…)
At Balmain, we saw the iconic rounded-shoulder jacket; exceedingly pouffy shoulders were spotted at Lanvin, Fendi, Gianfranco Ferre… Most of the outlandish shoulders seen on the runways are more Victorian than 80s, thankfully (?). While shoulder pads can be worn correctly, stay AWAY from pencil skirts and big hair!
Balmain // Spring 2009
Gianfranco Ferre // Spring 2009. This look is very edgy, I like it.
3.1 Phillip Lim // Spring 2009. Balmain-esque jacket.
Lanvin // Spring 2009. Classic Lanvin style.
Fendi // Spring 2009. Puff shoulder!
I like this trend, but you do have to be pretty careful… wear it wisely!
