London on fashion alert as Selfridges launch their much anticipated A-Gender clothing
department, Max.Tan sets his gaze upon the ‘Post Gender’ generation for AW!5.
Crafting a collection of gender-neutral garments that go beyond the concept of cross-dressing
and erase the stereotypically archaic confines of gendered clothing to create
the ultimate boyfriend aesthetic for his legions of female followers.
between opposites with transmorphic ease, Tan’s ‘XY’ collection reinterprets
traditionally masculine garments into a state of gender neutrality. Reimagining
the calculated creasing of pocket squares as asymmetrically pleated tunics or
delicate origami style skirts. Reconstructing men’s tailored pieces through ‘splicing’,
in order to bring the classics into a more contemporary mode of existence.
