We’ve long been skeptical about so-called unisex clothing: It’s easy for girls to throw on a man’s dress shirt, or a slightly baggy pair of jeans, and still look sexy. But it’s trickier for guys; it’s unlikely that your girlfriend’s leggings, no matter how stretchy, are going to be all that flattering on you.
Still, Lauren Alexander and April Leight, the designers behind L.A. label LnA, might just turn us into believers. With their newest collection, which they showed yesterday at Milk Studios, they nailed at least a few aspects of that elusive unisex thing. To wit: Their trademark leggings were loosened considerably to create an incredibly wearable pair of tapered cotton pants. Slim-fitting striped Henleys and super-soft, ultra-thin white v-neck Ts also seemed to walk that androgynous line in a way that guys might actually dig. Consider us converted.
