Pretty Boy Spring/Summer SS19 Menswear: Travaille
Travaille, the French word for “work”, uses the semiotics of traditional men’s workwear, ranging from utilitarian, blue collar silhouettes, to the structure and refinement of white collar leisure apparel. From this foundation, the collection works to deconstruct and transform the definition of menswear as a gendered constraint. These traditional uniforms are further altered to showcase the power of femininity in the life of the professional.
This collection is dedicated to my grandmother, Juanita Kling.
