Settling down from last year's creative leadership shake-ups, SS20 moves from the business chic and masculine risque looks to looks that are gender-bending and heatwave appropriate business. Designs are becoming less statement and more matter of fact, even though the mainstream will perceive at least 90 percent of it crazy. Short shorts and skirts without the gasp or hypersexualized connotation. That or I desensitized to it all.
Pink has been all the range with womenswear and beauty, Glossier and Kylie Skin continue this trend but now it seems that pink being more neutrally accepted on male runways alongside its pastel counterparts. Flirty colours in Thom Browne and Jacquemus are bold but neutral enough to wear on the daily. I am avoiding black, liking charcoal and greyish tones like at Dior (that had a pink runway) though Rick Owens always seems to be an exception to that rule (though the translucent platform heel is of dreams)
In the time of the importance of inclusion and diversity, there seems to be a greater shift unanimously towards body shapes and race. Height will always be something which doesn't vary too much on a runway but overall looks aren't being dominated by those of muscular proportion nor the heavily tattooed for shock value. It is all about... everyone and how we all consume and wear fashion, clothing, drag.
