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.
The W'menswear Para shirt was inspired by the shape and construction of military parachutes. The balloon sleeves have taped reinforcements at the seams, and you will find two military pockets at the breast. The fabric of this luxurious cotton tartan version was woven in small scale mills in Japan. It can be worn on its own, or as an outer layer. You will find our specially designed yin yang shank buttons to close the A-line shaped shirt.
