When thinking of androgynous items, I think I have to focus on both styling and materials. Obviously, it is easy to understand the styles of androgyny. Today, I would like to give the research findings of fabrics in androgynous items.
The leather jacket is pretty much cultural shorthand for cool – put it on and your outfit instantly exudes an edgy, bad-boy quality. (Rue, 2012) Nowadays, both female and male are wear the leather jacket, leather shoes and bags.
The name “denim” takes its origins from the name of a sturdy fabric called “Serge de Nîmes”. The fabric originated in Nîmes, France, hence “de Nîmes”, which has become commonly known as “denim”. It is a really androgynous fabric for me, there are jeans/outwears for men/female, also, dress for female.
The fabric of linen also a popular choice of making products. The brand which named VIVID is designed by pure linen.
