The unisex tank top, or the XX-XY wardrobe
Blue for boys. Pink for girls. Some comfortable in their sneakers. The others on heels of 12. Men in the comfort of a functional style. Women corseted, molded, exposed, sexualized. Wouldn't these clichés smell a little rancid, gendered, reheated patriarchy? Well yes. In the same way that a tank top, or Marcel, is not reserved for warehouse workers in Paris, or a sweatshirt for Rocky Balboas from the four corners of the world, sartorial well-being is no longer the prerogative of gender male. Unisex fashion, or genderless, frees itself from the male/female distinction and brings bodies together. As for the spirits… it’s up to you. The tank top does not create equality, but it contributes to it.
Comfort for all
Very well placed on the scale of “I dress how I want, whatever my chromosomes”: the tank top. Reinterpreted outside of workers' outfits and iron lifters, the Marcel finds itself at the heart of urban fashion or sportswear that changes the codes. The tank top comes out of the margins, the shirt falls off, and no longer checks any boxes. Comfortable, it couldn't be more ergonomic and very stylish as long as you know how to use it wisely (clearly... we're not waiting for Patrick), it's becoming more popular since a few muses, of XX or XY karyotype, made it their own. spearhead. Sigourney Weaver, Belmondo, Lara Croft, Freddie Mercury, Kirsten Dodgen... whether they're there to smash the aliens, display merchandise or stroll the Champs Elysées, the Marcel is an essential classic that combines convenience and style versatility. Apart from any debate on the binary, the tank top grants comfort to both women and men. Gender is a non-subject, while freedom of movement is on everyone's lips, with or without gloss, with or without a mustache. But with a Marcel.
Liberalization of dress codes
Men do not necessarily want to be virilized, nor women to be sexualized, by a fashion that makes the body a calling card. Representative of the values of our society, clothing trends have long exposed some to seduce others. The democratization of unisex fashion responds to a feminine need to assert themselves as an individual, and no longer to expose themselves as an object. In pants, in a sailor shirt, in a tuxedo, in Marcel, the woman redefines beauty outside the sexist constraints of another age. The tank top, like any other unisex clothing, is an attack on the hypersexualization of fashion, a slip intended to display other models. Beauty, certainly. But also comfort, well-being, and freedom. In sport as in everyday life, women no longer have to embody “this strange object of desire” at all costs. Like the opposite sex, they want Marcel, casual, shorts for playing beach handball, pantsuits for seminars, and unisex within easy reach. When they want, where they want. So, if woman is the future of man, the 21st century will be tank or it will not be.
