So spring is upon us and in my step and there is sunshine and birds singing and… shoulder pads, apparently. I’m guessing it’s one of those trends which hasn’t quite reached the Garden of England in any widespread way yet. In this article, Hadley Freeman tries to explain why the pads are big this season, and narrows it down to:
a) The Allmighty (capital A!) Credit Crunch
b) People feeling moody (and, you know, credit crunchy)
c) Making people look thin
d) Alien invasion
Don’t know about you, but my vote is on the skinny factor.
So, in celebration of this supposed trend, we’ve only gone and done a powerdressing, kickassing, shoulderpadding 80s shoot for your delectation. That’s right. It will be edited and posted soon.
