So here’s one trend I’m not sure I really see taking off. I understand fur coats, vests, trim, scarves, stoles etc, but I’m not sure I understand the allure of furry or feathery sleeves.
I think Michael Kors did it well (second from left on top). On her it looks more like an accent and more lady-like, but on the others, I can’t quite say the same.
I’m guessing this avant-garde look will stay in magazine editorials and may show up on some editors at runway shows, but I can’t see this look trickling down to the masses via Forever 21…
