Revel in flesh

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - WHAT MAKES US TICK -

To ex­pose has long been a state­ment of the fash­ion world. In the free love eu­pho­ria of the six­ties, women donned the mini skirt and re­vealed their thighs. In the nineties, the bare midriffs of the crop top on the cat­walk and the high street un­leashed the navel. In the world of sum­mer menswear, we’ve been see­ing the tank tops get­ting lower and lower, and the shorts get­ting shorter and shorter. The fact that rev­e­la­tion is ap­peal­ing may be uni­ver­sally ac­knowl­edged, but there is more than one way to wear less and stay in vogue. With another scorch­ing hot sum­mer ar­riv­ing in Hong Kong, Revo­lu­tion takes you through the trends. De­sign­ers’ run­way of­fer­ings for sum­mer 2015 ex­posed flesh to the point of be­ing con­sid­ered louche. JW An­der­son, ever a fan of blur­ring gen­der lines, cre­ated a spring 2015 col­lec­tion that con­cerned it­self with, in the de­signer’s own words, “per­vert­ing clas­sic men’s shapes.” One op­tion to ex­pose some flesh and evoke a sec­ond glance at any party is a dark blue tu­nic that is tied just be­low the shoul­der, tan­ta­liz­ingly ex­pos­ing a col­lar­bone and an arm to the el­e­ments. An even more dar­ing cre­ation is a knit­ted cardi­gan that zips from right un­der the chest to just be­low the navel, ex­pos­ing flesh in a very teenage nineties aes­thetic. An­der­son con­firmed that some­times, it is what you are not wear­ing that can give the

big­gest im­pact.
