The ‘peacock’ complex is something explored in gender-bending fashion; menswear makes a colorful, extravagent statement through powerfully ambiguous suits.
Fashion is a form of self-expression in which people create their unique style. Nowadays, fashion movements have been progressing towards more gender fluid styles. The Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston opened “Gender Bending Fashion” on March 21 as a progressive gesture to make the museum inclusive for all and showcase different styles from various well known designers. Walking into the exhibit, guests are greeted by a well-known piece by Alessandro Tincone. This Japanese-inspired piece gained its popularity by appearing on the album cover “No My Name is Jeffrey” of famous rapper Young Thug in 2016.
The ensemble from the “Annodami” collection from Spring/Sum- mer 2017 used the materials cotton, synthetic, paper, and wood. Tin- cone was quoted for the exhibit saying, “the androgynous identity of my garments reinforces my belief of no gender binaries between men and women.”
