Love how it was done at Jil Sander, but everything cocoon shaped Stella did this season is SO off.

if nothing else, it's a VERY comfortable cut

marni has been doing this forever quite successfully. it often depends on the fabric and the pattern to determine how well it translates to the form of the wearer. i find with coats its a good warm cozy design, tops and dresses are another matter and again with lines like marni those are the pieces that end up on yoox or outlets because they are often too cumbersome on the body.

I like how Stella made the cut. But i will agree not all woman would be able to pull this look off and as for street style i wouldn't imagine seeing dropped shoulders a staple piece in the closet any time soon.

i agree, round scoped shoulders and cocoon shapes are unattractive on almost everyone. Cocoon shapes hide the figure making the slender look fat.

Balenciaga created this sort of silhouette to enhance not detract the forms of his VERY humanly shaped clients, sloped shouldered, slightly round and most definitely without an hourglass figure. If done in tasteful lines, it is forever elegant, anthropological allusions to the ape withstanding

I found a black cocoon-shaped jacket in my mom's closet a few years ago and stole it right away . I find it works best with heels and tight pants - which creates a more balanced silhouette
