Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear

WHEN:

From April 10th 2016 to August 21st 2016
Paid Entry ($15.00)

WHERE:

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, 90036

WHAT:

Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015 explores the history of men’s fashionable dress from the eighteenth century to the present and re-examines the all-too-frequent equation of “fashion” with “femininity.”

Beginning with the eighteenth century, the male aristocrat wore a three-piece suit conspicuous in make and style, and equally as lavish as the opulent dress of his female counterpart. The nineteenth-century “dandy” made famous a more refined brand of expensive elegance which became the hallmark of Savile Row. The mid-twentieth-century “mod” relished in the colorful and modern styles of Carnaby Street, and the twenty-first century man—in an ultra-chic “skinny suit” by day and a flowered tuxedo by night—redefines today’s concept of masculinity.

“My job,” asserted designer Vivienne Westwood in 1981, “has always been to confront the establishment to try and find out where freedom lies.… I don’t really want to talk that much about fashion. It’s only interesting to me if it’s subversive.”

In creating the collection, Westwood and her then-partner, Malcolm McLaren were influenced by the street style of the postpunk music and fashion scene that had been variously known as “peacock punk,” “the new dandies,” and “the new New Wave,” before finally being dubbed New Romantic. http://bit.ly/2aRXFCA
