Suddenly the whole world is unisex. Or is it androgynous? Transitioning?
This is not satire, though it looks like it should be. Major fashion designers, since 2013, have been pushing men’s styles clearly into the female column. It’s called “gender blending” but it’s ultimate effect is more of a transvestite nature than anything else. When you first see this, it’s funny. Really funny. Then after you think about it for awhile it’s just sad. Really, really sad.
Ah…life in the end times.
Another champion of men in dresses, London designer Jonathan Anderson has been a force for gender blending for several seasons with his J.W. Anderson label. Quieter than Westwood, though no less radical, Anderson effectively channels the shock of seeing a flouncy mini-skirt on a man’s albeit ectomorphic body on the runway — enough to catch the attention of LVMH, who’ve installed him at the helm of the Spanish label Loewe. source
Bustiers (yes for boys) came with pockets in-built and were worn like muffs, while pinstripe trousers boasted oversized and outer pockets that spilled from the waist. Torsos were shown off to tight effect through body-hugging knits, which later boasted white picket fence and scissor emblems.
Fluffy coats in pastel shades and leather pleat-skirt tunics further explored Anderson’s “examination of bourgeois kinkyness and boudoir perversity”, as the show notes summed up. source
