Unisex clothing is gaining traction, moving from the runway to more accessible department stores. As this article notes, extra considerations are required in displaying unisex clothing; some of which I would recommend for all sections of the department store, such as including a baby changing table in both the 'ladies' and 'gents' toilets.
I have written before about how business wear forces women to carry around gendered identifiers such as purses due to lack of pockets and other sensible compartments frequently found in men's wear. More unisex clothing options in everyday wear could help alter business wear standards.
The current wave of unisex fashion has been building for the past six months ..But you know it’s gone mainstream when Selfridges decides to devote a whole section to what they’re calling “agender” clothing. Their concept for men’s and women’s designs reads almost like a religious text, extolling “a genderless attitude to fashion” that is “transcending traditional notions of ‘his’ and ‘hers’ ”. The agender areas were designed by Faye Toogood, and they bring together brands with a longstanding tradition of non-gender clothing, such as Commes des Garçons, Maharishi and Yohji Yamamoto, plus humbler brands such as Trapstar, Underground and Pigalle, along with a few well-known couturiers, including Jeremy Scott and Rad Hourani – the only designer to show a unisex collection at Paris haute couture. All presumably find it liberating not to have to design for one sex only.
