Fashion has always been considered as a powerful tool to make a bold statement or send out a powerful message, and that is exactly what Gucci has done with its latest tartan dress for men. Inspired by the ’90s grunge fashion, the tartan cotton long smock shirt features a Peter Pan collar, buttons made from mother of pearl, smock embroidery on the front along with a delicate white satin bow detail at the waist. However, there is more to the outfit.
Check out the dress below.
Designed for men, according to the brand’s official website, “…This tartan smock in delicate colours reflects the idea of fluidity explored for the Fall Winter 2020 fashion show, disrupting the toxic stereotypes that mold masculine gender identity. Pieces with versatile ways to wear and style embrace each person who is part of the House’s individual spirit.”
Priced at $2,600 (Rs 1,90,324), the dress “reflects the idea of fluidity” and is “disrupting the toxic stereotypes that mould masculine gender identity” as per the brand.
However, the Netizens were not too impressed. Take a look at some reactions below.
