Breaking the boundaries of men’s fashion – bow ties

I believe that rules and boundaries are meant to be pushed and sometimes broken. Not the ones that hurt us emotionally or that have the potential of putting us behind bars but the ones that society puts in place in the name of the “natural order of things“. You know, like the concept that the pantsuit was “inappropriately masculine clothing for women”. Then came Yves Saint-Lauren who in 1966 introduced his Le Smoking, an evening pantsuit for women that mimicked a man’s tuxedo. What a triumph! What a success!

And today, everyday, you see men proudly sporting murses, man-scarves, mandals, etc. J Et voilà, if they can wear my stuff then I can wear their bow ties too!
