The concept of gender fluidity has increasingly permeated the collective consciousness of our culture in recent years, slowly eroding the traditional framework of binary gender identity. The days when boys were expected to dress like boys and girls were told to dress like girls (whatever that means) are over, and fashion, as one of the most creative forms of self-expression, is catching up to that fact. Case in point: a gender-neutral collection from Saint Laurent has just launched on luxury e-commerce site Mytheresa.
The online retailer has introduced a selection of gender-inclusive pieces from the maison's Spring/Summer 2020 collection on the occasion of the launch of its menswear portal. Created by Anthony Vaccarello, the capsule draws on the experimentalism of the 1970s and the free spirit of Parisian bohemia.
The exclusive pre-launch collection consists of four looks that blur the boundaries between masculinity and femininity. Cuts typically associated with menswear are blended with softer silhouettes that were once the reserve of women. Double-breasted blazers in shades of black and white, skinny trousers in leather and jacquard, tanks tops, silk shirts, and more all make an appearance, modelled by Tes Linnenkoper and Lennon Gallagher (yes, of that Gallagher family).
