As the Highsnobiety team witnessed at Paris Fashion Week last month, the lines between menswear and womenswear are becoming increasingly blurred, and it’s about time. Many of the SS20 collections challenged gender constraints, from Acne Studios’ exploration of textiles and the presentation of its genderless skirt, to Kim Jones and Daniel Arsham’s futuristic vision for Dior Men’s, featuring stunning male all-in-ones.
Over the past six months, bag and accessory options for men, as well as attitudes towards them, have also changed significantly. Larger accessories usually confined to womenswear have become commonplace at men’s fashion weeks around the globe. And it’s not only the runway on which genderless items are burgeoning. There are great unisex options available right now from a host of streetwear brands.
From summer slides by Opening Ceremony, to an eye-catching accessory from Acne Studios, we’ve selected the wardrobe essentials that could and should be rocked by all sourced from retailers including Slam Jam Socialism and SSENSE.
