W’menswear AW23, “Flying in Crosswinds” continues to explore the ways gender has intersected with political ideology and been used to legitimate, or resist, different regimes. We were inspired by the life story of Maggie Gee, a Chinese-American woman who was one of two to ever serve in the Women Airforce Service Pilots in WWII. Gee was a determined physicist and pilot who believed in success and social change every step along her path.
A new silhouette this season, the W'menswear Mechanical Jacket is a bomber jacket with all the utility pockets a woman can dream of. This fully lined jacket has a rib knit collar, hem, and cuffs; is fully lined with cotton poplin, and has a water-repellent Supima cotton houndstooth shell. This fabric was woven in small batch in Japan.
