Transgender Models Rock & Other Stories Newest Campaign
H&M's sister store, & Other Stories, is making waves in both fashion and politics with its latest campaign and collection. PopSugar spilled the deets on how transgender models are featured in & Other Stories newest campaign, and they are seriously killing it. The capsule collection featured in the Swedish brand's hot photoshoot was designed collaboratively with transgendered professionals and hit stores August 20. Mark your calendars.
Fashion has come a huge way this past year in embracing the transgender community. Thanks to public figures like Andreja Pejic, Rye Silverman, and Caitlyn Jenner fearlessly speaking out, the industry is changing fast. & Other Stories' campaign specifically features Valentijn De Hingh and Hari Nef, and the two look flawless, confident, and sexy.
The collection itself falls perfectly under the emerging category of "athleisure wear." The looks mix classically tailored T's and pants with bright metallic accessories, sheer mesh fabric, and the occasional pop of leather. Every piece walks the line between delicate and edgy, creating a fun, quirky contrast. My favorite part of the whole line, though, is definitely the way the use of metallic shades adds an almost other-worldly feel to the collection. Whether you're headed to the moon or just gym, this collection has got you covered.
I mean, look at De Hingh in that mesh T.
And hello metallic stunners.
Rock on, & Other Stories for fearlessly showing your support! I, for one, can't wait to shop the collection in a few days.
