The game changer: Puffed sleeves


Puffed sleeves were the standout statement of the SS19 collections, championed by some of fashion’s most skillful designers. At Zimmerman, puffs added a bohemian air to utilitarian shirting, while at Brock Collection and Erdem they were used to embellish enchanting floral gowns. But while it’s easy to be seduced by the unbridled romance of this look, it does raise a problem: how to navigate outerwear. The solution? Drape an oversized blazer over your shoulders for a compelling boy-meets-girl mix – or go one better and try Simone Rocha’s sculptural puffed-sleeve coat on for size. We call it wearing your art on your sleeve.
