Can power garments be feminine?

Clothes Make the Man
In his creation of a gender-fluid men's clothing collection, Jens Ole Salling Árnason poses a challenge to the classic men’s suit. His design work, based on a draping elastics technique, defies today's view of masculinity and femininity in a desire to push the conservative framework for how men are allowed to dress.

Klæder skaber manden
Jens Ole Salling Árnason udfordrer det klassiske jakkesæt og skaber en herretøjskollektion med et kønsflydende udtryk. I arbejdet med at formgive ud fra en draperende elastik-teknik udfordrer han nutidens syn på det maskuline og det feminine i et ønske om at skubbe til de konservative rammer for, hvordan man som mand kan klæde sig.
