Trend alert: Superheroic sleeves

There’s definitely a sleeve thing about to hit come September. So far the AW11 collections have been rife with bejewelled, knitted and furry sleeve details which make for warm arms but might pose something of a challenge when squeezing into your coat.

Prada’s SS11 small-waist-big-arm dress silhouette is catching on fast with Stella McCartney referencing it for her AW11 collection with sleeves of Incredible Hulk-like proportions on slim and waisted dresses. It looks weird now but will all make sense in 6 months time. I hope.

Prada now…

Stella later…
