This fashion film by Gareth Pugh consist of six elaborate outfits that shine in gold and cobalt blue–two things that are way out of the monochromatic and minimalist designer. A few pieces in wet suit-like neoprene, high collars and angular tails keep the classic Pugh aesthetic. With ancient Italian architecture and religious iconography as the source of inspiration, the film exudes a decadence and artistry that captures the true essence of fashion.
Portrait, lifestyle and reportage photographer, Emli Bendixen, makes even the most gloomy and mundane settings beautiful. These atmospheric landscapes exude a sense of angst and wonder enough to inspire even the most detached soul yearn for one last mortal breathe of cold, brisk air. I love how slight flares of light give the images just enough warmth.

Designers from all over the world have launched collections that have cleverly erased the line between genders. And though androgyny is nothing new, the idea of it becoming the signature style of the 21st century and perhaps for many years to come certainly is.
Among the designers that have experimented with this idea of a genderless fashion is Rad Hourani. He blatantly shoved his unisex collection RAD by Rad Hourani in our faces and we loved it. His minimal aesthetic is perfect. With oversized deconstructed jackets, roomy yet brief shorts, a few simple tees, and skin-tight leather applique trousers Hourani gives us garments that can be worn by anyone at anytime during any season.
Overall the idea that fashion has taken such liberating steps is great. And if at one point it was taboo for women to wear mens clothing and vice versa now its simply fashionable, so we better get used to it.
