WOMENSWEAR I'D ROCK. spring/summer 2014

I really don't need to talk about the fact that 'fashion is androgynous' and how 'clothes don't choose the sex, but the sex chooses clothes'. It's fun to see womenswear collections from a guy point of view - not only because beautiful art is coming down the runway, but also to see what could be translated into menswear and to see future trends in men's clothing.

It's well known that women's fashion trends tend to inspire men's, and how (sooner or later) men are getting the same fashion treatment. This post is not about ladies' pieces I'd love to wear how they are, but a list of looks that could easily be translated into menswear, with a few tweaks here and there. Cropped tops would be elongated, blazers would get few inches in the waist, and silhouettes would be widened, but the electric feel of fashion with a capital F would remain.

I'm always excited to see how menswear and womenswear play off of each other - they inspire one another, give one another ideas while imitating them. An eternal circular process that's called fashion design. Something that has been androgynous last year, is now considered feminine - same thing applies in menswear.

This is probably just the first post of this kind, as browsing through womenswear shows and imagining the looks in a men's version on myself definitely amuses me.

Enjoy, ladies & fellas...
