25 Sculptural Fashions

From Shoulder Jewelry to Architectural Couture

— June 14, 2009 — Luxury
These sculptural fashions prove that style doesn't have to be sleek to be beautiful. With outrageous angles that appear at first glance to be more attuned to architecture than couture, these looks aren't meant for everyday wear, but they're no less wondrous to behold.

From wedding gowns inspired by famous landmark buildings to dramatic shoulder jewelry, these sculptural fashions are wearable works of art.

Implications - Although many of the pieces are outrageous, you may find some inspiration if you have the itch to do something totally different with your style. Items that don't meet wildly outrageous standards include shoes such as the architectural mega heels and the architectural soles made by Lacoste and Zaha Hadid.
