According to Duden, the term unisex is made up of the words Unus - Latin for "one, only one" and Sexus - Latin for "gender". Translated, unisex means "one gender". From unisex to crossgender to gender neutrality - “nosex” is well received because sneakers, shirts, trench coats and the like look equally good on women and men.
But the unisex fashion is not as new as you think: In 1968 Paco Rabanne, André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin showed the "Space Age" look - the focus was on the pants, the jumpsuit and the mini skirt. In addition, Coco Chanel revolutionized women's clothing, as did Yves Saint-Laurent, by launching a fashion icon with “Le Smoking”. From 2013, unisex fashion hit the zeitgeist again, with fashion by Rad Hourani and Miuccia Prada or Vivienne Westwood. Now unisex fashion and cosmetics are available almost everywhere, we show the top brands in trend.

The olderbrother label sets new trends by blending the boundaries of gender and design. The unisex fashion sees itself as an interface for men and women, play and sophistication as well as contemporary, nature-related design.
Environmentally friendly textiles, natural coloring and local production are used for the collections. Sustainability comes first from olderbrother - a challenge that the brand has set itself and therefore deliberately counts on “slow fashion”.

The unisex brand stands for artistic expression and environmentally friendly production practices. Artist MI Leggett challenges social and fashion industry norms regarding immense waste production through upcycling. Instead of actually having disposed of fashion pieces in landfills, she enhances them with unusual drawings and paintings. So all pieces are unique and can be personalized on request.
Badass Women Style - women can wear what they want and be with who they want. The Wildfang label was founded in 2013 with this idea. Statement t-shirts are designed to remind people that equal rights apply to everyone. Sayings like "Wild Feminist" or "Come As You Are" get to the point. Jumpsuits, a 60 sec style, bottom-up shirts or casual blazers are part of the collection. There is even a clothing rental service here.

The Adidas x Stan Smith is still a perennial favorite and can therefore be seen as a representative of the unisex trend.
