Focus on the shoulders and some shocking pink

Mar 5, 2009

The rage in fashion today seems all about the shoulders. If you're tired of Balmain's sharp shoulders, then take a look at Dolce and Gabbana's focus on the shoulders at the recent Milan Fashion Week: (all photos from

The shoulders have this Edwardian look to it, harking back to the era when ladies called their sleeves "leg of mutton". I know it seems an unflattering thought but on the model they looked fantabulous. I wonder how this look will fare in real life?

The collection has also Marilyn Monroe prints on them

This bow hat reminded me of what Aretha Franklin wore to the recent inaguration. Was D&G inspired by her? I think the Marilyn Monroe print shirt here is more wearable and with the checkered tulip (?) skirt, it looks so appropriate on a saturday night out. I love the necklace too. (Hmm, will try to copy this outfit soon)

Schiappareli pinks were also everywhere in this collection. It was said that the bold balooning shoulders were influenced by Elsa Schiaparelli, a designer who dominated during the two World Wars.

So who's on the forefront of this latest trend? See Anna Dello Russo in Dolce and Gabbana and in red no less! (photo from Jak and Jil Blog )

So ferosh don't you think?
