“The Outsider” imagines a contemporary menswear untainted by the influence of the great masculine renunciation—the late 18th century phenomenon which steered menswear away from brilliant, refined forms in favor of sober, muted attire. Ryan Croxton and Janina Gruber reject the imposed limitations of gendered clothing by combining stereotypically masculine and feminine clothing within single looks, deconstructing socially imposed barriers to articulate a vision of elevated menswear no longer at odds with ornamentation, fluidity, or femininity.
