Sher




1. Anna Sui Spring/Summer 1997
2. Costume National Spring/Summer 2004

The world was so ready and is ready again. Lace trimmed negligee tops and sheer blouses on the muscular male torso. Bra-cum-waistcoat hybrids revealing shoulders and midriff. We have a new gender: sher.

Some of them are mandatory (Yohji, Comme, Undercover). Others share the same theme or spirit (Raf, Walter, Craig). Some will most probably only be available there but not here (Meadham Kirchhoff). The re-contextualisation of exotism has begun.
