YSL - Androgynous Momentous

Just when you thought the androgynous moment of Casely Ledger had passed, Hedi Slimane securing Saskia De Brauw to model the SS13 Saint Laurent Paris menswear campaign ensures this is far from over. 

Gender swapping in the fashion world is nothing new thanks to the likes of Agyness Deyn, Tilda Swinton, Andrej Pejic and even AzMarie Livingstone playing important roles in the on-going obsession with androgyny, but whenever a French fashion power-house welcomes it into their grasp my appreciation is due.

Both the women's and menswear SS13 collections share the same aesthetic of sexuality and sensuality; women without make-up and un-kept hair, and men styled with touches of femininity and boyish charm in sharp black and white imagery combine for a care-free breath of fresh air into the new season ahead.
