With New Year’s Eve only weeks away, multiple designers with pre-fall 2009 collections are showing a strong affection for sleeves that are askew. Oscar De La Renta, J Mendel and Zac Posen all took part in the zeitgeist. The look also had a strong showing in the Spring 2009 shows, making it a sure hit at fancy cocktail parties this December 31.
Last weekend Vogue China threw their Icon Awards event where both Kate Moss and Milla Jovovich showed up asymmetrical numbers. With all of Beijing and Shanghai watching, it is sure to take a stronghold for months to come.
Trend Hunter is no stranger to the one-shoulder concept, since we saw it on red carpets this year. Prepare for the rush of the masses to be sporting one sleeve at dance clubs around the world to ring in 2009.
