2009 marked an explosion of new fashion for men- skirts. With names the likes of Gaultier, Commes des Garcons, and Yohji Yamamoto, male models in avant garde makeup and trailing skirts or over skinny pants walked the runways. Is this a sign of fashion taking gender bending to new heights?
Interestingly one response was about the need to make skirts for men more masculine looking or else they just look wrong. Hmm.
Contemporary fashion is about pushing limits. No rules, no must, no have tos, it’s about defining yourself without definitions. Transgress boundaries by disregarding it completely, reinvent it. This is why fashion is sometimes incomprehensible, out there and thus avant garde.
