like a boy

Stella Mc Cartney
Fashion designers often adopt a mannish appearance
for their women's collections emphasizing the
qualities, characteristics and behaviors that the 
male dominant culture associates with man, 
such as strength and power.

Dries Van Noten    -    Jil Sander
Lacoste    -      Michael Kors

This recurrent trend, made of slouchy trousers, 
skinny waistcoats, slim tees and mannish shoes may be 
straightforward and cheeky or even sexy but all of us
know it's best suited to lissome, slender and graceful 
women unless you want to look like a bloke, do you?
Besides a woman must always be comfortable 

with her own femininity.

“This is a man's world, this is a man's world
but it wouldn't mean nothing, nothing
without a woman or a girl...”

James Brown with Betty Jean Newsome
“It's a man's man's man's world”, 1966
