The latest shows of men's collections are shocking. Men's fashion becomes feminine! Soft lines, traditionally feminine colors and meager sizes. Famous fashion houses offer our attention a effeminate male creature. Narrow shoulders are tightly covered with T-shirts, and the absence of "pumped-up" muscles of the arms and back is emphasized by super slim sleeveless shirts. Long hair, bangs, thickly falling over the eyes, cover small foreheads and even cheekbones. Men's necks (not "swan" by nature) are decorated with huge collars of various designs. In the details of decoration, glittering "trinkets", feathers, fur are often found. If women's fashion was captured by the style of "military", "cargo", wide belts, metal fittings, "tattered"edges of products and imitated "patches". Scuffs, stains, "sandy mud" tried to erase the femininity of the owners. Men's hats and caps are becoming an indispensable attribute of a real fashionista. What is left to men? They are offered in abundance of brocade, satin, silks and transparent fabrics with funny patterns (polka dots, flowers, oriental curves of strange plants). Wide coats of pastel colors hide the natural bodies of representatives (either male or female). Slip-on trousers made of soft stretch materials are more like tights. The knitwear is either baggy in shape (to hide frail bodies) with large collars, or is so tight-fitting that it gives the impression of borrowing things from a younger sister. Scarves, ruffles, ribbons complete the look. HEDI SLIMANE presents models for thin men. Features - narrow shoulders, fitted silhouettes, open necks.
Back in 2001, models for very thin men from Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Gucci, Helmut Lang and others appeared on the catwalks, which make fans mercilessly say goodbye to extra pounds. The 2003-2004 collections offer men such feminine attributes - bag-bags (some semblance of Soviet nets), transparent flowing fabrics of bright colors, polka dots, graceful glasses in delicate feminine frames of pink, yellowish, orange tones, soft-shaped hats in delicate pastel colors. Karl Legerfeld lost weight himself and calls everyone else to this. To "fit" into vintage men's models (some are made in women's sizes), you need to lose 40 kilograms and meet the average female standards.
Do the representatives of the strong (?) Half of humanity like this updated fashion? Are their tight-fitting clothes and exposed areas of the body comfortable? Will they look attractive enough in clothes of gold and silver colors (where they would be appropriate - on dates with your girlfriend, at corporate parties, in the offices of reputable institutions, parties, or:), animalistic drawings, pale and delicate pink and peach tones?
We will receive answers to these questions after a while: When, going out into the streets of cities, peering into a fashionably dressed individual, we will be able to guess a man in him!
