This is …Masculinity
'Gendered attitude, gendered relations and gendered stereotypes concerning men, masculinity and their place in society.'
"Societies view on menswear and masculinity is notorious for being very rigid. Therefore I have created a menswear collection that pushes people’s perception of masculinity.
The inspiration for my collection has sparked from a look at Rococo design, historical architecture and the modern ‘Dandy’- marrying the modern man with the history of menswear. I have used feminine fabrics and intricate detail in a tonally neutral palette, to create a new modern view of menswear which challenges people's ideas of menswear and masculinity."
