prep your SHOULDERS

Lately, fashion seems to be cutting down on adding layers and accessories and pumping up on new silhouettes and detailing. It is like going back to basics when everything was more about quality cuts and materials and not so much about quantity. This tendency is most noticeable in plenty of Spring/Sumer 2009 collections, specially on shoulder shapes. They have been rounded (Balenciaga), pointed (Balmain, MarcJacobs) and sculptured (Chloé, V&R) resulting in some very innovative forms that only the bravest will wear. But if they do not spread out next summer at least shoulder pads will.
Have a look at what some of the best designers have come up with.

Yay or Nay?

Good eye ;) I'm not a fan though.. It works on others, but not for me. I don't want to look like I have man shoulders.. Works on the models, as they are really skinny.
