“Blink” 2015 Predictions: Code Breakers

In this 2015 prediction post we are focussing on fashion’s blurred lines, the breakdown of gender rules and the liberation of style across sexes. The whole androgyny thing has been a topic for ages, joined and enhanced by boy models who look like like girl models, that was then followed by girl models who look like boy models. With this gender swap-shop the only natural conclusion seems to be what we are now seeing in the Prada and Gucci menswear shows, occasionally in the womenswear pre-fall collections and also on the streets being worn by the fashion pack. Boys in skirts are old news. Now the emphasis is on girls borrowing from the boy’s wardrobe. Okay this isn’t brand new news (hello Coco Chanel, Katherine Hepburn) but what is news I guess is that this isn’t news!

All codes are broken, all bets are off. Regardless of your gender, your shape, your age, your whatever, you put on what you like, what you feel good in and what reflects your mood of that day. Suit up and look sharp ladies? The choice is yours.
