The puffed up shoulders of your stereotypical 80s "working woman" suit continue to be the (well deserved) butt of jokes, however, the underlying idea is a good one: extending the shoulders makes a woman's silhouette even more feminine, especially when the waist is also nipped in.  Granted, Margiela is playing with proportion here, but there's no denying these clothes have a sense of humor, look interesting, and with touches like the string-like swags & net-covered boots - they interpret the trends in a fresh light.
