One of the most talked about debuts at NYFWM (New York Fashion Week: Men’s) was Robert Geller’s new Gustav Von Aschenbach line (named for the title character in Thomas Mann’s “Death in Venice”), which featured sets of monochromatic, loose uniform-style looks with a strong unisex appeal. Carlos Campos showed unisex jumpsuits, tunics and sport pieces in drab beige balanced by bold pops of red on a mixed-gender runway. N-P-Elliot designer Nicholas Elliot took a more fantastical approach to androgyny with his boldly patterned bodysuits, draped shorts and billowing sleeves.
“All our boys (on the runway) are so pretty we didn’t want to gender the clothing too much,” said Elliott. “This trans thing that was popular a couple seasons ago was kind of a fad but this is my brand ethos. It’s important that we talk about the right kind of intersectionality (in fashion).”
