A good example for thin and lightweight shoulder constructions – masterpieces from Italy

5. January 2015 — Leave a comment

Yes Fashion is about looking into the future, but for understanding fashion technically it is worth to browse the web and look for former collections. As my first article was about the development of shoulder pads I would like to add on that and give some examples to better understand the differences of the three main shoulder fit types – natural, regular and pagode.

These  suit examples here are about the natural shoulder. What I like very much is, that the jackets still look very correct and formal, although the construction of the Chestpiece and shoulder is very light. I would bet that the shoulderpad will be made of very thin layers of felt and canvas and rather no cotton inside. If I get the chance to open one, I will prove that.

Enjoy the styles, but this time concentrate on the the suit shoulders.   Spring/Summer 2014.
