Shoulders in Focus on the New York Runways

One trend that has taken us by pleasant surprise this Fashion Week is a newfound respect for shoulders — you know, that beautiful body part that becomes nothing more than a purse hook come fall. Several designers focused on the area this week: Alexander Wang draped crepe wool just so to create vents, Prabal Gurung favored bare shoulders with revealing boned corsets and cut-outs, and Donna Karan deftly wrapped black jersey just about everywhere except the shoulders. Cold shoulders: They're so hot right now.
