JW Anderson Fall 2013: Addressing The Man Dress

Up-and-coming Brit designer Jonathan Anderson paraded his male models down the runway in mini-dresses, bustiers, ruffled bloomers and skirts — in a gender-bending exercise in creativity meant to shake up the often staid realm of men’s fashion.

Entitled “Mathematics of Love”, JW Anderson’s fall 2013 collection transposed these traditionally feminine elements and silhouettes onto a masculine canvas in a rather intelligent way, so as to come off less “draggy” and more “21st century dandy.”

A 21st century dandy who’s not afraid to show off those gams.

    Up and Coming now crash and burned. This was just bad, plain, boring. If you are going to do a runway fashion show do it RIGHT. Not to mention the fact that these designs have been done, saw them before, making them shorter doesnt make it a new design. ALthough I liked the idea of the androgynous look this was not either.

    ugly dresses. if you are gonna put a man in a dress put him in a pretty one.

  • MikeE

    yeah, well.. if I was forced to wear something like that I’d have a dour look on my face as well.

    besides, those are just ugly ladies’ dresses worn by guys. drag is drag.

    This shit is a joke right? A prank? Cause they are all so awful and ugly it simply can’t be for real.

  • Jason

    THAT is the reason I gave up fashion modeling.

    I don’t know of any Drag Queens that would wear these in drag let alone as a man. They are just plain ugly.
