What’s behind it: ‘The Outsider’ focuses on the idea of what menswear would look like today if the great masculine renunciation, the historical phenomenon at the end of the 18th century for menswear two stop using brilliant or refined forms, did not happen.
The story looks at subverting ideas of certain items belonging to a specific gender, passerby’s have been used in some shots to show that you can see obvious representations of gender through peoples clothing; looking onto the street now you can pick out who is male and who is female just by what they are wearing. This has been challenged with our model sticking out due to his clothing which doesn’t conform to the stereotypical ideas of menswear and womenswear, but ‘menswear’ and ‘womenswear’ mixed within looks.
