It’s 2018. Men in skirts shouldn’t be prepared to field questions about their masculinity anymore. The issue of constrictive masculinity, or the idea of masculinity warped to fit society’s mould of acceptance, is no longer a realisation just dawned. And menswear designers have a pivotal role in the matter. It’s up to the new blood to offer fresh perspectives on how men today might, could and should be presenting themselves.
As we enter the pandemonium of men’s fashion month, we’ve put together a list of young menswear designers who are boldly broadening the scope. Whether showing on or off the fashion week schedule, they’re the ones that’ll grab your attention and stir conversations.
From Berlin’s discowear to Tbilisi’s gender-blurring label, the eclectic perspectives coming from this crop of subversives are sure to spice up the menswear sphere. Scroll down, and keep them on your radar for the coming season.
