TREND | Post-Gender Unisexuality, Our Shapes are Always Changing

We’ve been on a steady post-gender trend, but it wasn’t until this year that the impact of unisexuality has truly made its way into the mainstream.  
Hip-hop has a sometimes-unfortunate history of being dominated by machismo conservatism. But we live in a modern world where the ‘norm’ is always changing. A wave of prominent and emerging artists has not only debunked the dated ethos through experimental music but through their choice of post-gender fashion.
Kanye West has always been vocal about his love of fashion, and he was definitely on this unisexual train (before it was cool) when he killed it in that leather skirt. Though it attracted a lot of silly attention and controversy at the time, that skirt kicked off the amazing trend of eschewing gender boundaries in street style.
At Coachella, we saw Kid Cudi step on the stage in a male crop top, and André 3000 performed his second Coachella set in a long platinum blonde wig. Both their looks seem inspired by Shayne Oliver’s FW14 collection for Hood By Air.
