Un Garçon Nommé Désir

«Un Garçon Nommé Désir» is a fashion story exploring a more sensitive and fluid approach to masculinity. Our muse, Brandon, is a professional dancer so we tap into the traditional wardrobe of a male dancer and update it with a touch of sparkling couture. 

With a more refined and delicate wardrobe we attempt to create a more genderless approach to men’s fashion. We  explore what the new depths of modern masculinity could be, while still enabling Brandon to feel empowered by his own desire to wear something bold and sexy.
