I guess it is a sign of aging when you stop saying ‘look what’s in fashion’ and begin saying ‘look what’s BACK in fashion.’ Mega-shoulders are back. Wow. (It’s actually depressing, but lets not be too grumpy).
These shoulders doesn’t do it for me, although the second outfit looks elegant in a japanese-meets-space sort of way, rather cool. The last black “straight-jacket” is horrible… Have a lovely weekend everybody!
I love that in all these examples, they knew when to stop when it came to accessories. When your clothes are so outstanding and significant, you don’t want to dull their impact by adding belts, jewelry or even a purse! All the shoes I can see are great, btw. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Oh, the pale blond woman in all black- very striking! Also the man’s look really works as a casual but very stylish look: black jacket, dark wash jeans, gingham shirt with that scarf (is that an Arabian scarf? looks like the one my husband got during his travels…)
I think the third from the top works well and I love his scarf and shirt combination. I like the coat in the second photo- yes, it’s extreme for the street but that makes it kind of fun. I like her gloves because she’s paired something traditional and formal with something outre. Love his boots too.
#3 Channeling Madonna, Who’s That Girl edition. At least from the neck up. Big shoulders, well, they were due for a comeback sooner or later. Keffiyahs are controversial in the States but like seeing them worn anyway. It’s like taking back the night or something.
The guy in the 3rd picture down can come and live with me….so I can borrow his clotes and especially his scarf ! Love his complete look ; he looks effortless as for the other people in this shoot they all look like they had advice from a stylist, it looks less personal to me….
Love the Margiela boots on the lady in the crazy trench! I always try to picture these clothes in normal everyday life and then I laugh when I am reminded that these people obviously don’t lead normal everyday lives! I could see myself walking the dog in that trench – LOL! The people at the dog park would die laughing!
Two of these shapes is fashion at its best and worst… The silhouettes does nothing good to their bodies and I am not sure wether these ladies ever dare to take them out of the closet the next season. Sometimes a NEW idea isn`t always a GOOD idea.
My personal opinion is that the brown looks silly. I rather like the rest, but the shapeless haircuts detract from #1 and #4. Guess that means I like #3 the best – too bad it looks like she is freezing. But that does bring up the question of what to wear as outerwear over extreme shoulders.
I loved the coamel toe definition, it made me laugh… Big shoulders look experimental today but in the wrong way: seen them before and never ever been flattering. Just a comment about these (allegedly) French women: typical French “arrogance”: no need for make up or to look after hair style as long as the clothes look expensive…
Yikes! The first and last pics are not good– extremely fashion victim-esque: The physicality of the individual does not match the graphic lines of the design. This is the perfect example of “(Designer) Clothes do not make the man– or women.”
The woman in the trench dress coat seemed like such perfection except for the footwear: She would be sublime wearing a strong, structured and sharper design.
Hands down, the third woman from the top wins! She looks fantastic with such a strong and elongating silhouette. No fashion victim here. Beautiful.
simple hair is required for this look. it must offset the stand-out shoulders. Thats why this is an evolution from the 80′s where such a look would consist of big hair, big shoulders, big earrings, big bracelet….
Not too much of a fan but I like it if its a rare site rather than a trend.
The woman in space age trenchcoat with silver booties looks amazing. She really carries that off, and with genteel little white gloves! I always love the black silhouettes and these are no exception. The woman in the cape looks warm – and not to be messed with.
Just last night I was trying on some Thierry Mugler jackets and Claude Montana suits I saved from way back when……I love the fact that they are chic again. The construction of these pieces is superb and quality is without measure. I am encouraged to pair the vintage jackets with some of the accessories of this season…booties..etc. Oh, I like the Space Cadet Trench the best…looks like she is in a voting booth.
What smart clothes!! I like that all the clothes shown today incredibly unique without looking costume-y. I really love the trench and the cloak without sleeves. definitely making a social statement as well as a fashion statement
Ah Sart, thank you. You have been taking a lot of pictures of “beautiful” women lately and let’s be honest, beauty is one of the great joys in life. I am not complaining. But these women are not only stunning, they interest me. I would love to talk to these women.
Interesting, the range of comments on the Middle Eastern scarf in #3. Each country has its own color/pattern combo. This might be Iraqi. The black (or red, if you are in Jordan) is hand embroidered on the better scarves.
These are totally amusing pictures. The expressions of the women really match the clothing. Almost disturbingly so. Most notably the 2nd woman looks as concerned as one should when peeking out of a khaki castle-parapet to ascertain the position of the approaching enemy forces. And the poor woman in the odd sleeveless garment looks as dour as one might expect after being captured by a black straightjacket.
it’s like the last woman took a military coat and distilled it down to its conceptual essence.
there’s something bizarre, simple and strangely right about it. If here hair and makeup didn’t look so ghostly, the outfit would look less coffin-like. (But perhaps this is in keeping with the military theme)
The first time I saw somebody bringing this look back was RÃ³isÃn Murphy. She was wearing a gray one. I think itÂ´s totally chic, the cut itÂ´s amazing. I donÂ´t care if itÂ´s 80s or not. It seems extremely confortable and warm.
Can’t believe the nasty comments. I love these individualistic pictures. Clothing is not ALL about enhancing your figure for the viewing (perving) public. Kudos to the wearers. Oh, and tabi boots are very comfortable and stable to wear. Try ‘em! Why do you think then ninjas wear them?
