Being an lady hairy ape means we monkeys here in the zoo don’t usually hit the fashion pages of newspapers. After all humans have expectations.
Andrej Pejic (google it) distinctly indicates a problem fashion has with the male gender which is many colours and styles are a no. Yes there ok for females but not for men.
Fashion got a lot of stick for anorexic of the week models. Many people think fashion is silly and not applicable to them.
Andrej is a man model not a lady and although paid to do this indicates the rules of fashion have become an barier that designers are struggling to overcome.
Theres going to be much debate, and too many small minded shop keepers and established thinking that will probably stop this from happening in mass. However Andrej Pejic is stunning in his getup.
Yes It’s not a style that will suit many men but it does illustrate the problem that while women can wear anything from the male styled suit (with tailoring) men are left with a smaller and smaller range of clothes – not that men don’t wear suits,
It will be interesting to see how fashion and its gender constrained distribution resolves this issue (if) they do at all. However i think it wont be the last time we see this from the fashion setters.
