According to Duden, the term unisex is made up of the words Unus - Latin for “one, one and only” 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 co. look equally good on women and men.

But the unisexfashion is not as new as you might think: in 1968 Paco Rabanne, André Courrèges and Pierre Cardin showed the “Space Age” look - the focus was on the trousers, the overalls and the miniskirt. In addition, Coco Chanel revolutionized women's clothing like Yves Saint-Laurent did by bringing a fashion icon onto the market with “Le Smoking”. From 2013 onwards, unisex fashion hit the zeitgeist again, with fashion from Rad Hourani, Miuccia Prada and Vivienne Westwood. Now is unisex fashion and cosmetics available almost everywhere, we'll show them Top brands trending.
