Androgynous fashion has been at the forefront of the genderless movement since the 1930’s, blurring between the lines and creating a unique fashion statement loved by many, and with society becoming progressively open minded it’s becoming more common to see this trend being repeated on the runway again and again.
Here are some of our favourite Androgyny looks from the runway this season…
Joseph is a fashion brand that was started by the late Joseph Ettedgui, inspired by the stitch on his daughters school uniform, the brand is one of the most recognised on the runway. Creating unique fashionable knitwear for a woman who appreciates high quality materials, always keeping up with current trends.
Celine was one of the first luxury brands to emerge into the fashion industry. When it was created with husband Céline Vipiana they started as a made to measure children’s shoe brand and together with Raymont Peynet an iconic logo of a red elephant was created which is globally recognised today.
Ann Demeulemeester, a Belgian fashion designer and one of the Antwerp six, took most of her inspiration from the androgynous singer Patti Smith. Her collections are mostly shown in Paris fashion week and combines a gothic era with a Japanese influence which seems to suit almost anyone.
Started in 2001 in California, Drifter is always pushing to break down barriers and to evolve as a brand. They are inspired by contradictions- modern but vintage, intricate but flexible and that’s what makes them so unique. They, like Androgyny don’t pay attention to barriers within the norm and constantly strive for new direction.
We are looking forward to seeing this trend being explored further in the coming years and seeing which direction they could go next.
