Proenza Schouler is Tipping the Point

By Hyunjee Lee, from New York Magazine's The Cut.

"Arriving in stores today (actually yesterday–Stana), Proenza Schouler’s pre-fall 2017 collection is luxurious but casual with bold colors and patterns. Three transgender models star in a lookbook shot by photographer Ethan James Green, a former model who starred in Calvin Klein’s sexting ad campaign in 2015: Stav Strashko, Marcs Marcus and Torraine Futurum (above).

"They and two other models (Michelle Gutknecht and Emm Arruda) wear sequins and stripes, pleated leather, and woven platform sandals, giving each look a collaged quality, as the different cuts are layered."

FYI, Proenza Schouler is a New York based womenswear and accessories brand.

    All very applaudable, however - there seems to be an adoption and continuation of the mega-thin, anorexic, stick insect model appearance from the female model world. So if the clothes are a success I presume there will be more young males suffering from eating disorders.
    Regards, Catherine.

  2. Regardless of their gender, those models are not attractive. And neither are the clothes.

  3. What is a "transgender model", anyway? It makes as much sense as referring to someone as a "model transgender." The last pic's caption refers to a "male womenswear model," and that does make sense (if accurate, as I don't know anything about Marcs Marcus' gender identity). If I were modelling, I would accept "transgender woman model," but just "model" would suffice.

    I agree with the above comments, and I know that I would not look good in those outfits - I'm not skinny enough (would have to become emaciated), nor do they reflect my sense of style.
