It's all about the shoulders...

It all started with the return of the jacket and the bomber, rather 80s, lightly curved, short, accentuating the arms and shoulders, graphic or completely rounded. The eye focuses on the top of the torso.
And it is good protection as the coat envelops and the shoulders gain volume, eventually falling by the continuity of the sleeves. This wave breaks even on dresses, tops and sweatshirts, thus defining a new attitude for next winter noting in particular Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s sweatshirts for Lacoste.
Nevertheless, the kings of the shoulder this season are without a doubt Mary Katrantzou with her enchanting silhouettes and also Thom Browne who particularly likes to work with this part of the body.


Interview:

Stella McCartney :
You know, it’s that idea of extremes and taking a very masculine, strong shoulder and wrapping yourself, cocooning yourself in your boyfriend or your father or your husband’s jacket: that feeling of protection in a sense.

Thom Browne :
There is very much attention to the shoulders and the hips in the clothes, there’s a strength in the girls and I think that it’s just more empowering for the girls.
