Fashion doesn’t care if you’re a male or a female.
more brands and designers are committed to erase the gender barrier in their
creations. Nowadays, there is a generation that no longer wonders if a
particular garment is masculine or feminine, since the line that divides the
gender seems to be extremely small. This new generation has assimilated the
codes of true freedom by assuming that any man can wear women’s clothes and
genderless, defined as «without gender» is nothing more than a unisex
fashion reference, introduced in the 80’s, which allows both women and men the
freedom to dress as they wish without depending on for whom it is intended. In
