Shoulder Interest @ Badgley Mischka - 2020

Shoulders came into focus at the Badgley Mischka Spring 2020 New York Fashion Week Show.  Big shoulders, puffy shoulders, frilly shoulders, decorated shoulders, all gorgeous.  With a kind of tropical feel  inspired by the American Glam elegance when Hollywood movie stars played in the Caribbean,  in the ’30s and ’40s. The hair by Felix Fischer was classic, the lips by Mary Irwin were a cool red with a satin finish, finger patted on.   For more from this show, CLICK HERE

Trend Alert.  Wide shoulders. As worn in the ’80s are returning.  One can feel it. Maybe not mainstream this year but watch out for more next year. This was first posted in 2016.  I post it again. It takes time, and now Marc Jacobs and others showed big shoulders on the Fall 2018 runways.  Meanwhile, check out this Vogue 1984 editorial with big shoulders, worn with hair by WorldGreat Ezel.    Check out all his work from the ’80s to the present, especially the hoot of a video at the end of Photo 8, click HERE
