Rocco Barocco - Fall '87
Honey, I have heard of strong shoulders, but this is ridiculous! Did this ever look good?!? What is interesting though is that it is this very jarring style and proportion that influences some new avant garde designers like Gareth Pugh and, before him, Jeremy Scott. These designers are all about shock, disconcerting imagery and subverting the beauty of the woman in favor of the fashion statement. Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely places!
