Bright yellow coat with black trimmings.

Artist's statement:
'Saying that this or that colour is for a boy and another colour or fabric is for a girl is as ridiculous as saying that this vegetable can only be eaten by a boy, or this drink is only suitable for a girl. It is so silly, but we do it all the time.' Jean-Paul Gaultier.

"Attempting to reduce the fear in elements deemed feminine by society , I focused on the concept of power and choice in the wardrobes of Britain’s men. Lifting the mood, the collection sparks a conversation between the man and his clothing, encouraging the questioning and exploration of just what he can wear."
