TRENDS | Men | THE NEW MASCULINITY HAS A FEMININE TWIST | by Robyn Germanese | It was not so long ago that men dressed in bright colors, wore heels, makeup, and sumptuous fabrics. That changed and now we see men caring more then their fathers and grandfathers did about fashion. Some designers are taking care of this niche. Take Andrea Pompilio, JW Anderson and Meadham Kirchoff, for instance, who are tirelessly breaking boundaries in men’s wear, to bring upon a new frontier where it is acceptable, and appreciated when a man takes effort, and expresses his individuality.
During Andrea Pompilio’s fall 2013, menswear show (at Pitti Uomo, Florence), it took nine female models to walk the catwalk before any men showed up. Bejeweled hats, color pops, and tassel scarfs completed the effeminate men’s wear collection. Whereas, JW Anderson continues to blur genders with his ruffle shorts and sheath dresses exposing knee and décolletage. Lastly, Meadham Kirchoff gives us a miasma of color in his hyper tech, gypsy fortune- teller, languid artist (cf. previous post on Meadham Kirchoff latest collection).
