Gender fluidity is here to stay.
Gender fluidity is having a moment, although I like to think of it more as a revolution that will change the way we look at fashion for good.
Spanish high street retailer Zara recently released a gender neutral line, trans supermodels Hari Nef and Andreja Pejić walk both men’s and women’s shows and you’re just as likely to see budding style icon and millennial poster child Jayden Smith wearing skirts and nail polish as you are hoodies and sneakers.
It’s not just fashion that’s embracing gender fluidity, either – M.A.C. has just released a delightful new line of unisex makeup with Harry and Peter Brandt – brothers, New York city It boys and kids to supermodel Stephanie Seymour and billionaire art collector Peter Brant.
The globetrotting party kids (with two of the most fun Instagram feeds around) know a thing or two about makeup – they’ve only been wearing it since they were kids, after all.
The second part of the line, which was first released in September 2015, features a range of lip stains, sculpting creams, neutral eye shadows and brow gels that are designed to enhance literally anyone’s features – male, female or anywhere between.
The sleek, black packaging is designed to appeal to anyone regardless of gender, in a bid to get more men to experiment with the stuff. “Most makeup is packaged for women, which is why men feel embarrassed about owning it. There's no difference between makeup for men or women—it's all packaging," Peter said recently in an interview with Allure.
Couldn’t agree more – I’ll be stocking up on the stuff as soon as it hits Indian shores, or the next time I know of someone visiting from America!
The collection goes on sale online on May 26, and will be in stores in the US from the 2nd of June until the 14th of July.
