The distinctive 80s shoulders return in full force in autumn

While the ’80s power shoulder was best modeled on the equally strong women of the era – be they real (a young Princess Diana) or fictional (Alexis Carrington, aka Joan Collins in “Dynasty”) – her style was heavily influenced by Legendary designers like Thierry influenced Mugler and Claude Montana – whose long-lasting influence on fashion was felt more strongly than ever in the fall collections.

When hit Schiaparelli In Daniel Roseberry’s show, “the proportions were bold and brassy,” noted WWD’s Joelle Diderich, whose maxi shoulders gave off a touch of Montana and who died just three days before Paris Fashion Week.

Olivier Rousteing also relied heavily on the past and referred to the Balmain Archives with wide-shouldered trench coats, the epaulettes fastened with gold snail buttons. “We celebrate women,” Rousteing gushed to WWD’s Miles Socha about his all-ages cast. “She’s powerful, she’s strong, she’s confident and she’s beautiful.”

At Outside, Raul Lopez continued his exploration of various subcultures and empowered the next generation by bringing “the metrosexual” to the forefront. “His penchant for unabashed flash lighting was expressed through a new collection of bouldering shoulderwear,” wrote Thomas Waller.

Another ultra-hot New York designer, Catherine Holstein, has released a line of sculptural leather coats with big, strong, rounded shoulders, like the burgundy ones shown here. For Booth Moore, “the message lay in the strength of vulnerability.” Khaite‘s way.

More bizarre versions of the power shoulder trend included Hill Street‘s padded rubber “muscle shirts” and Jonathan Anderson‘s ridiculously baggy tweed coats, which Socha suspected could set off a social media firestorm.
