First, coats started becoming enormous this winter. Then, the new spring/summer collection arrived, and the oversize look dominated the catwalks.
Let’s say it, it’s good news. In these complex times, roomy styles become the antidote to stress, large shapes are casual by definition, they free us from constrictions and give us a sense of easy chic that seems unintentional, even if it isn’t.
The cuts are fluid while maintaining a subtly sartorial elegance. The clothes are spacious but secured by belted waistlines, gigantic shirts are knotted at the hips, palazzo pants fall loosely while still accentuating a nipped-in waist, the jackets take center stage for their softness, but remain precisely cut, like we've seen in the colour trends. Just one guideline: oversize + oversize = style catastrophe. Even oversize has its rules, and they're precise: don't overdo it.
