Our favourite gender-neutral designs inspired by London Fashion Week Men’s
London Fashion Week Men’s just drew to a close, and genderless clothing was a popular theme on many runways.
Designers shunned the need to create traditional masculine lines and cuts, instead favouring non-binary flowing gowns, softer silk textures and striking skirts that can be worn by anyone.
To celebrate this rising change we’ve picked our favourite gender-neutral brands making their way into the mainstream:
British design duo sisters, Faye and Erica Toogood, create stunning unisex outerwear that’s both practical and sculptural, inspired by traditional uniforms.
Each garment contains an identification label listing the individual designers, makers and distributors, to ensure the wearer feels connected to the ‘chain of creation’.
The best bit about Toogood? The incredible mini works of art lookbooks.
Artist, designer and photographer Rad Hourani launched his first unisex collection in 2007 at the age of 25, and has continued to create incredibly striking clothing ever since.
Centered around the idea of ‘neutrality as a new universal vision’, Rad experiments in sculpture, painting, video, sound and costume.
Take a look at his amazing collections, described as being ‘genderless, raceless, ageless, nationless and limitless’.
Created in 2012 with the aim of offering beautiful genderless clothing that remains practical, Fabio Costa’s unique line is comfortable and accessible to all.
Inspired by his grandmother’s seamstress work, Fabio experiments with the form and function of clothes, his aim being to ‘push boundaries while offering rational fashion’.

The sister-sister team behind this progressive footwear brand believe that gendered footwear inhibits style, design and quality choices – so they set out to rectify it.
Sarah and Rachel Waxman then began creating unique menswear-inspired shoes from sustainable vegetable tanned leather in a family-owned factory in Portugal.
The result? Classic styles and high quality designs that shun gender limitations.
