Trend Spotting: Wide Collars

Some designers added drama with wide, round shoulders, and some went for the extra large collar. Wide collars are a really great way to add impact to any outfit, and have a very easy-going, slightly rocker vibe.

Rue du Mail, Miu Miu, ADAM

Cushnie et Ochs, Miu Miu, Antonio Berardi

Roland Mouret, Chloe, Dries Van Noten (I know this last one isn't really a super wide collar, but it's so cute and the colors are so perfect together)

My favorite were the soft notched collars are Miu Miu, the extra wide, super floppy collars at Rue du Mail, and the angular, shearling lined collars are Antonio Berardi (very 2004 Balenciaga, no?), because they fit perfectly into other trends spotted on the runways. The huge, floppy collars from Rue du Mail hit on the rocker-chic vibe we saw at Phillip Lim, Pucci, Julien Macdonald, etc. The angular shearling at Antonio Berardi picked up the aviator styling from Hermes and Ralph Lauren, and the Italian, Hitchcock heroine coats at Miu Miu fit perfectly into the '40s vibe that was all over the runways, proving that the wide collar is not only a super-versatile style, but a good invest for next season.
