Revenge of the Shoulderpads: Dolce & Gabbana’s puff sleeve trenchcoat


We’ve had to put up with a lot from shoulder pads this year. They’ve been on everything from dresses to jackets to shirts: in fact, chances are that if it covers your shoulders, it’s probably had a pair of giant foam pads inserted into it at some point this year.

We think this Dolce & Gabbana trench coat is one of the more amusing shoulder-pad pieces of the year, though: not just because the thought of paying £1,850 for something we’d have trouble fitting through doorways in makes us snicker slightly, but because it looks like the Incredible Hulk is about to come busting out of it at any second. In fact, we’re pretty sure that if the Hulk shopped at Dolce & Gabbana, this is what he’d buy.

If you want to buy it too, you can pick it up at Browns.

    Cartoon much?

    Or maybe a gangster’s moll from a crime movie from the 1940s?

    Seriously, pass on the shoulder pdas.

    I wish I could say why I’m laughing so hard at this. I’ll just say this: Cake would help that problem, not shaped clothing.

    I love big shoulders, as I have very small ones and it’s a striking look, but this is ridiculous.
