Genderless Kei - Japan’s Hot New Fashion Trend

Tokyo Fashion writes about a new Japanese “unisex” fashion which is definitely crossing gender boundaries: Genderless Kei (kei means “style”)

They write:

Styles vary greatly, but the popular idols of Genderless Kei so far are generally slim-bodied and cute-faced boys who dye their hair, wear makeup and colored contact lenses, nail polish, flashy clothing, and cute accessories. Genderless boys are not trying to pass as women - rather, they are rejecting traditional gender rules to create a new Genderless standard of beauty.

HIGH FIVE: UNISEX SCENTS

Fragrances that go both ways.

When it comes to fragrance, some of us prefer scents that aren’t overly feminine or masculine. We picked five that feel modern and palatable to all—no gender labels necessary. KELLEY HOFFMAN

Calvin Klein CK2

Back in the ’90s, Calvin Klein made a splash with ck one. They’re back at it with this contemporary twist—balancing woody and fresh notes, and housed in a bottle with a futuristic feel.

CLEAN Reserve Sueded Oud

This luxurious, woody musk from a brand known for its sustainable and eco-friendly outlook taps into the intrinsic human desire to get back to nature and discover our truest selves.

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume

An energizing combination of blood orange, jasmine, and sandalwood notes evoke maybe the most perfect morning ever: an alfresco breakfast at sunrise with a beautiful ocean view.

MAISON MARGIELA ‘REPLICA’ Jazz Club

Inspired by a free-flowing night in an underground Brooklyn jazz club, this intoxicating scent’s vanilla and tobacco leaf notes exude a warm, boozy, bebop energy.

TOM FORD Neroli Portofino

With notes of citrus, floral, and amber, get instantly transported to the Italian Riviera. Seriously, this sparkling scent makes you feel like a movie star.
