Max.Tan – XY
With 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.
Drifting 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.
