In this Collection, Weihao Wang would like to address issues around masculinity, to be more specific, Weihao’s own masculinity.
Therefore, he named this A/W 2020 collection ‘Boys’. The designer commenced the research by looking at his own physique. Being a male, he found his body appearance slight and his personality gentle and passive. In other words, he realised he has differed somewhat from traditional stereotypes of masculine men. He realised that people viewed him as feminine due to his interest in male beauty and because of his refinement.
For this collection, he is discussing contemporary masculinity and exploring what makes a man masculine. The collection poses questions such as what does the term ‘manly’ mean,
how has masculinity changed over time and what are possible development in the future. This collection speaks clearly about what makes a man a man.
