As soon as they saw the painting by Pavel Fedotov, visitors to the exhibition at the Academy of Arts began to smile widely and some were unable to contain their laughter. And again and again they came to look at it. Why?

Officer & artist

It took Fedotov a year to finish the paintingit was his third work. He, a retired officer of the Life Guards of the Finland Regiment, wanted to paint battle scenes. But, it turned out that everyday scenes were best for him. First, there were ‘Fresh Cavalier’ and ‘Difficult Bride’.

After seeing them, already famous artist Karl Bryullov was so delighted that he obtained a scholarship for the author. With the 700 rubles he received, the artist began to paint ‘Matchmaking of the Major’. He approached his work military thoroughness: he bought things to write from nature. I even bought a wedding dress. I wore a mannequin, giving it different poses to achieve believability. He approached his work with military thoroughness: he bought things to paint from life. He even bought a wedding dress. And dressed a mannequin, giving it different poses to achieve believability.

In 1849, Pavel Fedotov presented three of his works at an exhibition at the Academy of Arts. The public’s attention was focused on the new canvas: they were fist pumping, laughing openly and the artist himself read to the audience poems of his own composition explaining the essence of the ‘Matchmaking of the Major’.

Advantageous marriage

Denim in this heat? Only when it’s Kenzo.

City pop – the funk-meets-disco sound and retro-futurism aesthetic that emerged during the Japanese economic boom of the 1980s – is back in a big way this summer.

It inspires Kenzo artistic director Nigo’s spring summer collection as he looked at how founder Kenzo Takada interpreted this time period from the French brand’s archives.

His version is, of course, very much current: Japanese tailoring meets the oversize proportions of the ‘70s and the ‘80s, paired with semi-sheer knits and short shifts in a blurring of menswear and womenswear codes. Dress shorts in wide pleats are a hybrid of a hakama, and a double-breasted pinstripe jacket takes on the relaxed fit of a kimono. 

Graphics also feature prominently throughout the collection. Nigo’s close friend, the Japanese graphic artist and k-pop group Blackpink’s latest artistic director Verdy, contributed a reimagined “Kenzo Paris” logo, emblazoned on the back of jean jackets and windbreakers and even in some of the tailored pieces. A rose print reinterpreted from the Kenzo archive refreshes sheer, body-skimming pieces. 

Kenzo has been exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Stores Specialists, Inc. since late last year and this star-studded relaunch at the 96-square meter store carries current season offerings, as well as limited-edition collaborations, such as the highly-coveted Kenzo x Asics sneakers designed by artistic director Nigo, making it a true pilgrimage stop for fans of Kenzo and Nigo.

In exploring the diverse expressions of personal identity and style, one intriguing aspect that emerges is the choice of some men to wear women’s clothing. This phenomenon transcends simple fashion preferences, tapping into deeper discussions about gender identity, societal norms, and personal freedom. The motivations and implications of this choice can vary widely, encompassing psychological, cultural, and aesthetic dimensions. In this detailed exploration, we aim to understand the nuanced reasons behind this preference and how it reflects broader societal changes.


Historical and Cultural Context

The Tradition of Cross-Dressing

Cross-dressing has historical roots that reach back to ancient civilizations, where men often donned attire typically worn by women for religious, theatrical, or ceremonial purposes. In many cultures, these practices were not only accepted but celebrated as essential elements of tradition and storytelling. Understanding this historical context sheds light on how modern perceptions of clothing and gender norms are culturally constructed and subject to change.


Psychological Perspectives

Exploring Identity and Expression

For many men, wearing women’s clothing is a profound way to explore personal identity. It can serve as an expression of a gender identity that does not conform to traditional male stereotypes or as a way to explore the fluidity of gender. Psychologists suggest that this can be a therapeutic exercise for some, providing a sense of relief from the constraints imposed by conventional gender roles.

The Role of Autogynephilia

Autogynephilia, a term coined in the context of sexual psychology, describes a male’s paraphilic tendency to be sexually aroused by the thought of oneself as female. This concept, although controversial and not universally accepted, is often part of the conversation when discussing why some men are drawn to wearing women’s clothing.


Aesthetic Appreciation and Comfort

Fashion as Art

Beyond gender identity or psychological factors, some men simply appreciate the aesthetic of

In this project at The Hythe, designers from Slifer Designs incorporated wildlife paintings into the overall look.

Slifer Designs’ tagline, “Designed for Your Story,” applies to all facets of interior design, but one of the prominent ways it comes into play is through art. Just like the creativity, technique and skill that goes into generating a unique piece of art, placing it in the home takes a special eye.

It all begins with deeply listening to clients about what they want and how they use their space. This discovery process acts as an inspiration to start the design process. As they install furnishings and finishes, and handle all of the logistics, they also pay special attention to artwork.

“Art is a great way to bring the soul of the client into the home,” said Oshi Gardarian, lead designer at Slifer Designs.

While it’s easy to select appealing pieces, it’s not always easy to know where to place them, how to choose the proper scale for a wall or room, or how to group smaller items neatly.

“We try to think about design as a story. When you walk through the home, you want it to be the same story.” Oshi Gardarian, Slifer Designs

Gardarian recommends first sticking with your region — in this case, art that reflects the natural environment, from mountains and forests to Rocky Mountain wildlife. For example, a recent redesign of a penthouse in The Hythe building in Lionshead includes depictions of deer, from a triptych to Pendelton-upholstered mule deer mounts and a piece portraying mama deer with her babies.

A pair of new exhibitions at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery invites visitors to peer through history using radically different perspectives. 

In Tam Harrington’s Fashion, a Complex Relationship, ornate garments fashioned from repurposed metal and plastics stand ready to adorn women from ancient Egypt, medieval Europe, and Havana night clubs.  

Within the colourful frames of Strata, arrayed in the Eve Smart Gallery, acrylic and glass shaped by Linda Suffidy depict the seductively grooved contours of deep time. 

Both artists met with members of the public during an opening reception on Feb. 17. Attendees stood among the mannequins adorned by Harrington, punctuating its parade of feminine power. Each piece by the Gibsons-based artist and educator is inspired by a period or woman who influenced her creative journey. 

“Clothing can be about progressive change or it can be about holding women back,” said Harrington. “That’s why so many of the things that have hoops are like cages, keeping the woman inside.” Harrington’s regalia for Queen Elizabeth I includes a hooped petticoat (known as a farthingale) that defines a boundary around the regent while pinpointing her as a centre of attention. Its high ruff collar is made from intricately joined strips of metal splayed from the neckline, simultaneously exalting and protecting. 

The association of Harrington’s wearable art with armour is unmistakable, whether in its three-dimensional realization or in her ink drawings accentuated by acrylic paint. The Ten Commandments Bra & Venus Flytrap Thong exudes seductive allure alloyed with adamantine brawn. 

Her assemblage Mur de Fluer evokes the practice that arose in 12th-century China for embroidering clothing with flowers and scenes of nature. But there are no shrinking violets in Harrington’s sculpture: leaves and petals are realized as gleaming flanges and tines. Her Bra for Breast Cancer Awareness is a barbed bandeau that

The fashion and art scene is abuzz and exciting. After last year’s three-month run at Greenbelt 5, PHx Station, the dynamic market of the most exciting Filipino contemporary fashion brands, culminates with a pop-up at the much-awaited Art Fair Philippines 2024.

This edition of PHx Station will feature apparel collections from Bagasáo, Idyllic Summers, Joyce Makitalo, Jude Macasinag, Kelvin Morales, Kill Joy Studios, Le Ngok, nicolò, Novel, and Randolf. PHx Station also presents a selection of jewelry by Joyce Makitalo and exclusive art pieces previously featured at Dover Street Market in Tokyo from 13 Lucky Monkey.

“It’s important to see the designers we feature — past, present and future — as an ongoing collaborative narrative of design, craftsmanship and fashion,” says Esme Palaganas, co-founder of the PHx Fashion Group.

PHx Station couldn’t have found a better final destination to close its 2023 season, as Art Fair Philippines, founded in 2013, is the prime space to showcase the best of the country’s modern and contemporary visual arts. The move likewise continues to underscore the PHx Fashion Group’s aim to provide a platform to help propel fledging labels to a global standard.

PHx Station’s presence in Art Fair Philippines results in an ongoing dialogue between art and fashion. “We believe that the brands featured in PHx Station exhibit deliberate intentionality in their work, each possessing a distinct language and voice to communicate with their customers and audience,” shares Joseph Bagasao, co-founder of the PHx Fashion Group. “This parallels the process of creating art.”

“Having space in Art Fair Philippines is an exciting project for us, as we share the same values of recognizing and providing a platform for genuine talent,” Bagasao adds.
