I can imagine that a unisex collection is difficult to market because although, women are open to be adventurous and be more androgynous, men are still old-fashioned when it comes to what they wear. Having said that, there are groups of men today that are happy to play with their looks; those who are confident to wear even a feminine ensemble. The great thing about Rad Hourani‘s unisex collection is that the pieces are neither masculine nor feminine. The look is modern and structured, which features wide and layered lapels in blue, white and petrol.

sliced @ JUUN.J s/s 2012

Some of the pieces from Juun.J‘s S/S 2012 collection looks like they’ve been cut in pieces and sewn back together. As you would expect from the designer, this collection is an inventive and ultramodern take on tailoring.

Rad Hourani pushes the boundaries for menswear even more for his spring/summer 2012, as men walks in gender-breaking and feminine layered looks, including dresses and skirts in black and blue, down to the accessories, which you would normally see being paraded by women.

ANGELO VAN MOL spring/summer 2012

Here’s a preview of what to expect from Angelo Van Mol‘s menswear s/s 2012, a collection of clean and minimal pieces, using modern fabrics (I’m seeing neoprene). Modern silhouette in both dark and summery colour palettes. Cleverly titled ‘Techno Logical Sports’, it was nicely shot by Zeb Daemen.

skirts + bird of paradise prints | GIVENCHY MENSWEAR SPRING 2012

More gender-breaking pieces from Givenchy menswear spring 2012 by Riccardo Tisci. More men in skirts, which eventually (and hopefully) will become the thing of the present. The bird of paradise prints are delightful, which goes really well with the light and summer-y colour palette.
