Liberate men with satin and corsets: fashion icon Galliano
Yahoo ^ | June 22, 2018 | Fiachra Gibbons

John Galliano set out Friday to redefine 21st-century masculinity with corsets, sensual satins and vinyl trousers to "liberate" men from their sartorial shackles.

The British designer's new collection for Maison Margiela at Paris men's fashion week not only blurred the lines between genders, but blew them away with shiny pink ribbon belts and a haute couture decadence that rarely treads the male catwalk.

Inspired by genderless fashion boutiques now springing up in London and elsewhere, Galliano put out a podcast to explain how he is plotting to release men from the straitjackets of suits and streetwear.

"I have been questioning myself, and I've been trying to redefine what it means to be masculine today," he said.

The designer urged men to learn from women how to feel both classy and comfortable.

“I have been questioning myself”

I’ll be more than happy to give you the answer.

This is nothing new. They’ll keep trying, real men will ignore them, and they’ll keep failing

Men like to liberate themselves with firearms, a good scotch and attracting non-insane women

West Hollywood, Greenwich Village....hopefully not enough to keep this ‘trend’ going though.

If a "fashion icon" really wanted men to change their wardrobe the big sales push would be for "khakis: now with cuffs". Chance for me to buy corsets and satin: absolute zero.

There is a clash of civilizations in the West. On one side we have men who are obsessed with "shiny pink ribbon belts". On the other side we have these guys (in London). I wonder which side will prevail?

Nothing new. Fashion designers were trying to get men in dresses and makeup fifty years ago.

There’s no hope for a man who believes he’ll be liberated by a corset.

70 years ago men wore things to hold in their guts (whether it was because of a hernia or other reasons, I don’t recall but they were seen in films of the 40s and 50s).

And apparently body shaping is need for men because hypocritical woman fat-shame men all the time.
