As confirmed in the latest haute couture shows in Paris, large should are a must this season. Padded and structured, military-inspired shoulders markedly protrude almost from the armhole of the jackets and mini-dresses by Balmain. In the blazers from Alexander Wang shoulders are even more defined and marked by a zip that delimits the perimeter. Elegantly oversize are the puff shoulders of the garments crafted from taffeta and silk by Cc By Camilla Cappelli and the romantic jumpers by Ulla Johnson. The satin garments with sharp shoulders and marked waist by Alexandre Vauthier are halfway between the style of the '40s and the glamour of the '80s.
