The rise of oversized

(in order of appearance: Styleby, Magazine #11 - Harper's Baazar US, September 2012 -Vogue Russia, September 2012 - Styleby, Magazine #11 - Vogue Paris, September 2012 - Vogue GB, July 2012)

Minimal, clean-cut, XL proportions have taken over the pages of our go-to glossies this month. One would almost be forgiven for thinking that these six silhouettes all encapsulate the one shoot ... that I have taken upon myself to baptise 'the rise of the oversized' - but feel free to dub as you please. Fall 2012's layered, voluminous simplicity has already become a favourite of mine, and I haven't even shed the tan yet. And so, I hereby declare the search for the perfect drop-shouldered above and beyond normal proportions tailored coat open. Ideas on a postcard please. So far, favourites include bath robe look-alikes, commanding military blazers, and outsized cocoon zip-ups. In the meantime, the boyfriend might find that some of his own outerwear has gone amiss ..

  7. Such a great look. I'm glad that oversized proportions are back but I don't want to lose the skinny and narrow as well. I want to keep everything so I can mix it up every day.

  10. Love these, especially the first!!! Maybe this is a sign that I should wear my Valentino jacket more often, it's too big, ha ha.

  16. Les 3 manteaux que tu nous montres sont tous très beaux, certes ils sont différents mais ce rapproche du style XL que tu nous parles temps...

    Pour l'instant je ne pense pas à m'en procurer un vu le beau temps que nous avons. Profitons-en avant la pluie, le froid et la neige... Ok je sors ;)

    Belle soirée, bises.
