Oversized balloon sleeves were everywhere on the A/W 11/12 catwalks.
Oversized balloon sleeves were everywhere on the A/W 11/12 catwalks, from Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim to Topshop Unique (pictured) and Burberry Prorsum. Equally appealing on tailored jackets as it is on knits (as seen at Alexander Wang) and sheer blouses, we expect to see this used to update silhouettes across many product categories for next season.
The cropped balloon-sleeve jacket, as seen at Edun, was one of WGSN’s key catwalk items from the New York A/W 11/12 collections. See WGSN Boutique for our full key items reports.
