Androgyny is in as Men’s Saint Laurent Paris Spring/Summer 2013 range fronted by female model

By Gerald Lynch on November 26th, 2012

Ever found yourself wandering around your favourite boutique, uncertain which rail was menswear and which was aimed at the fairer sex? That shouldn’t be a problem come next Spring as, if Saint Laurent Paris’s New Year menswear range is anything to go by, androgyny is in.

The newly rebranded ready-to-wear arm of the legendary Yves Saint Laurent fashion house has seen its creative director Hedi Silmane pick Dutch female model Saskia de Brauw as the face of its Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

The wiry 31 year-old model looks sharp in the line’s tailoring, with her cropped cut hair and defined bone structure giving her a Jagger style swagger that many male models would struggle to pull off. It’s not de Brauw’s first gender-bending modeling stint, having done previous work during the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2013 menswear show.

Silmane is well known for his gender-neutral styles too, championing slim-fit trousers and suits for Dior Homme that have been as popular with the ladies as the men they were first aimed at. As a result, the new campaign for his debut line for Saint Laurent Paris will stress that all items are available to both genders.
