Fashion is, by its very definition, an industry powered by change. Seasons come and seasons go, bringing with them a seemingly never-ending supply of new and exciting looks with myriad influences – from Working Girl to Western and everything in between. However, there are a handful of special trends that are truly timeless. Case in point, romance. Fashion’s fascination with fantasy is enduring and, this season, it takes the form of flowing, structured and generally head-turning sleeves. Leading the charge are female-led labels that include Khaite, Chloé, Ellery and Emilia Wickstead – no doubt because their deft designers understand just how empowering a statement sleeve can be (confidence being yet another look that is never not in style).
