Unisex collections or gender-neutral fashion: the new trend
For a long time, women got ideas and inspiration from men’s closet. Coco Chanel was the first to introduce the concept of “unisex” dressing; conversely, Hedi Slimane or Raf Simons for instance, have revolutionized the discipline with their bold re-imaginings and feminization of the male wardrobe.
More recently, Selfridges in London has opened in 2015 a radical, gender-neutral department store designed by Faye Toogood: Agender, a unique “genderless shopping experiment”.
Gender-neutral clothing is becoming the fashion industry’s next big thing especially regarding t-shirts and sweatshirts.
With the emergence of sportswear and streetwear, t-shirts and sweatshirts are now men’s wardrobe essentials complementing any modern outfit.
As regards Fabulous Island, we have overtly developed a gender-neutral aspect in our collection. For numerous times, Julie has borrowed some of my sweaters or t-shirts matching them with leather leggings, high waisted shorts, a skirt or a pair of jeans. Anything is possible, you can find your own style, and there are no rules.
