You may have thought this fashion dead went out in the 80’s, but as we know fashion constantly looks back to the past for inspiration. Fall / winter 2011 looks set to mark the return of Androgyny – women looking like men and vice versa. Though this trend can be traced back to icons such as: Grace Jones, Annie Lennox, David Bowie and most recently Eleanor Jackson, of English electro-pop group La Roux, it is model Andrej Pejic who is at the forefront of this latest return of the Androgynous look.
These images are of 19 year old male model Andrej Pejic who perfectly demonstrates his andrgynous look. Highly sought after androgynous models, such as Andrej Pejic and Agyness Deyn, have put fashion designers in a frenzy. It now seems every designer wishes to dress female models in masculine attire thereby making the androgynous look a hot trend this year.
In an era where Beyonce boldly sings “who runs the world…girls”! The androgynous trend, also known as Andro Style, is definitely in vogue. Andro Style allows women to show their inner strength and masculinity. Not only does this style allows women to dress comfortably in mens loose clothing, but to experiment with dramatic makeup.
Here are a few of the looks which have been seen down the runway recently:
