Frida Giannini of Gucci had some fun with Spring 2014 Menswear Collection - florals, leggings, backpacks, ...raincoats?I try to step outside the heteronormative box when it comes to things like fashion, but admittedly I can't help but giggle at some of these looks. I automatically hear some of my NYU classmates yell, "tight pants and florals do not mean you're gay!" But in 2013, I still can't imagine my boyfriend or any of his friends embrace any of these runway looks without constant explanation about how they're being silly or ironic. I graduated high school less than ten years ago, where some my peers in Pennsylvania equated masculinity and "proper" sexuality (heterosexual) with how baggy their jeans were. When will men feel comfortable about wearing florals without any irony or comedy?
I want those pants. Perfect shade of peacock blue, and I love the placement and contrast of the white paneling.
This is what I wore when I visited the Niagara falls.
