Everyone knows the current social trend or more accurately, growth on a social level is about the topic of gender expression and recognition. Traditionally when someone talks about men’s wear and women’s wear there is a very old school image of the two that is now being broken down, cross pieced and put back together. The spring/summer lines in the recent Paris Fashion week show this as the men’s wear move toward more feminine designs.
This can be seen in many brands such as the ever-popular Off-White brand with his oversized designs done in a more neutral aesthetic. While keeping true to that classy street style showcasing graffiti like art on some pieces and further expressing his color between black and white, Off-White. This particular show was more than another step-in gender expression it was also another display of mixing confirmation with street style and luxury. This brand and many others are well versed in this mix of old ideas in fashion by the classes making this showing in a luxury market such as Paris Fashion Haute Couture Week so important. This further solidified the streets in a world they never really made sense in and more over they are flourishing.
On the blending gender styles, another great example would be Versace. They show coats belted at the high waist on both men and women. Each gender equally showed femininity, fierceness, animal prints and a kind of put together edginess. They also showed bags for both genders, large, and small.
Fashion continues to be a voice for hot topics such as this and new push to a cleaner more recycled fashion environment. The outcomes have not disappointed and we all look forward to the next wave of cause, trends and everything before, middle and after to express ourselves and beliefs.
