Removing the gender "label"

The fashion world has always tested the limits when it comes to socially accepted trends. From using transgender models on the runway, to nudity and combining colors and cuts that wouldn’t normally be adorned by men. Pushing those boundaries and opening doors for new trends are a part of the business.

Never before have we seen the trend of a high fashion brand making a man the face of a women’s line; but boundaries are being pushed by Jaden Smith. Outspoken and oftentimes misunderstood, Smith couldn’t have been a better pick by Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director for Louis Vuitton. Jaden Smith “represents a generation that has assimilated the codes of true freedom, one that is free of manifestoes and questions about gender,” Mr. Ghesquière stated. “Wearing a skirt comes as naturally to him as it would to a woman who, long ago, granted herself permission to wear a man’s trench or a tuxedo.”

Said perfectly by Ghesquière, women adorn what we call “men’s clothing” all the time. Pants suits, ties, and tuxedos— clothing can be worn by all genders, right? Once upon a time women were not a part of the work force and not often did we hear the term “stay at home dad.” Gender roles have shaped society into boxes that constrict the way we function, the jobs we apply for, and even the way we dress. What was once socially acceptable and expected is now being molded into a new form. A form of self-expression that all genders can equally share.

Jaden Smith and many other millennials are transforming the roles once assigned to men, women, and everyone in between. Whether in a skirt, dress, or skinny jeans… clothes are clothes for all people to wear, and the SS16 Louis Vuitton collection is the perfect way to erase those gender roles and to rid us of the box in our closets.
