Gender neutrality

BARBARA I GONGINI is the Faroese brand that people either love or they don’t. The brand was founded in 2005 and is based in Copenhagen.

The aim at BARBARA I GONGINI is crafting garments so they are suitable for both men and women. The structure of the forms are often not conventional, so you always expect some experimental shapes when checking out the new collections. The S/S15 collection presented at the Copenhagen Fashion Week was the opening show at the fashion week and I was curious. I had seen a dress by BARBARA I GONGINI at the New Nordic exhibition the previous day that was quite feminine compared to her previous work, so I wondered if we would be getting some new vibes from the Faroese brand.

No, the feminine vibes were not dominant after all. The avant-garde mixed with goth vibes were present, as expected from BARBARA I GONGINI. The show itself gave you a bit “trashy” feeling but when you take a better look at the garments, you appreciate the minimalistic design and the elegance sprinkled here and there in the collection. The individualism associated with the garments is also quite liberating, wearers are encouraged to interact and close forms by selective personalisation of the silhouettes. Kudos!
