Cross Currents

Boys Will Be Girls

by Clair Watson  |  February 2, 2015

The recent crop of men’s runway shows, which revealed the looks for Fall 2015, featured many masculine touches. Yet we also discerned a refreshing trend of gender bending, allowing men to embrace their inner girl — from the androgynous long-haired models in blouses with bows (courtesy of the last-minute substitute design team at Gucci) to the flowing maxi coats donned by the models in Raf Simons’s Paris show. Below, behold a selection of 1stdibs fashion, furniture, jewelry and art inspired by our favorite ambisexual looks.
