Introducing the Man Dress: VIDEO


It Brit design JW Anderson's latest collection is all about gender-bending.

Writes Daniel Tehrani at OUT:

The inspiration for his collection, titled Mathematics of Love, was the "examination of bourgeois kinkyness and boudoir perversity" -- the result, men in strapless camel bustiers, frilled bloomer-shorts, doctors' gowns complete with what looks like dishwashing gloves, a powder blue robe and kinky leather pleated dresses. Wearable? Not quite. Commercial? Definitely not, but it is certainly conceptual...

...Style.Com writer Jo Ann-Furniss says "write off Anderson as a mere provocateur at your peril; his agenda is more complex than that. The effeminacy of this collection—a kind of put-together sixties jolie madame made into a twisted jolie monsieur; think Séverine in Belle de Jour crossed with some of her kinky fantasy coachmen—is intended to reconfigure both menswear and womenswear, and to give a kick up the arse to the stale state of much of men's fashion at the moment."

In fact, Anderson is a part of a bigger movement to bring originality into the men's dress-code.

See the collection, AFTER THE JUMP...

  4. Short skirts on men would, as long as they were worn sans undies, be far more comfortable and healthy, and practical. Farting would be facilitated -- barrierless and odor retentionless. Less ball and butt sweat would be generated and would generate less bacteria and odor. Fungus growth would be inhibited as well. Unfortunately, ugly and mishappen gents in skirts would show us unsightly flab, joints, folds, splotches, low-sagging scrotes, etc. with abandon. Better they keep that mess to themselves.
