If I were a boy…

I would wear tie, clip pants, Oxford shoes and black hat. Androgyny goes back to the 20’s, when our loved Coco Chanel freed women from corsets (with permission of Paul Poiret) and dressed them in straight and baggy dresses and male trousers. Thank´s Coco, the dictatorship of female asphyxiation ended.

Mademoiselle emerged as the best example of a male femininity, that claimed comfort and gender equality.
Today, identity change is on the catwalk, with tops like the serbian Andrej Pejic, who closed SS 2011 Gaultier Haute Couture show with a wedding dress full of transparencies. Another banner of androgyny is Agyness Deyn, the queen of the catwalks and advertising.
The street has also echoed this trend that blurs the differences between women and men. They (and me) bet on our boy’s wardrobe. Do you?
