During one of my marketing lectures at university this week my professor was giving us a recap on demographics and lifestyles. As he took us through various power point slides one of them stated the definition of metrosexual which was the following:
• Metrosexual: a man who is heterosexual, sensitive, educated, and an urban dweller in touch with his feminine side.
Male narcissism is generally frowned up on making it for the humorous but highly inaccurate definition triggered giggles throughout the lecture hall. What’s certain is that the definition wasn’t extracted from the Oxford Dictionary and as a somewhat vain man it took a good level of strength to not dispute the mockery. As public messiah for mextrosexuality David Beckham one can’t point at an instance when Beckham has not even remotely showed feminine traits in character. Metrosexuality has solely been perceived as a cult engaged in by urban men who highly prioritize their image and appearance. Femininity has never been apart of the game………….until now.
When Prada showcased ballerina skirts and belly button exposing tops for men in Milano earlier this year, Gasps and question marks were the reactions from spectators who were wondering if they really saw a Prada skirt for men or whether the pre-catwalk champagne were playing tricks with their minds. Shockingly no one anticipated a feminine fetish wave rippling through the industry of men’s fashion. Numerous of designers jumped on the band wagon by sprinkling their Men’s SS09 collection with some girly pieces that would make an amusing Halloween outfit.
Alexander Mcqueer topped the fashion season which an exhibitionist styled bathing suit enabling men to finally terrorize the beaches of Sao Paul in the most destructive way. Not even the most hardcore homosexuals would be caught seen wearing anything near this monstrosity. Predicted sales for this item: zero
Not even the most masculine designer has been immune to the flu of blasphemy. We have already seen Tom Ford’s AW08 ads featuring unorthodox posing. Theatrical Thom Browne ran out of ideas for his SS09 show and made a grand finishing for the men’s SS09 with some jawdroppingly despicable brides dresses for men.
The sane one in this sexual confusion was Roberto Cavalli who took the opportunity during men’s fashion week to preview he’s SS09 by tossing in some God sent femininity amongst the men on the catwalk. Gorgeous Natasha Poly, Kim Noorda and others showed up on the catwalk tanned as pretzel looking just as thin as well. Nonetheless it’s estrogen in its purest form.
