papa, can you hear me? in this outfit, he would. when babs played yentl in 1983, she was probably unaware of what a trend-setter she would become.
to summarize, yentl (born a lady) yearned to study the talmud, a religious text read only by the opposite sex in early 20th century jewish culture. in order to bend the rules, she escaped her small village to a neighboring one, dressed in menswear, and essentially became a member of the male society.
androgynous looks have proved their importance in fashion for years. designers like ralph lauren, michael kors and calvin klein have all been inspired by woman both on and off-screen who exemplify such looks: katherine hepburn, annie hall.
mcq, rag & bone, jil sander, rachel comey, eugenia kim and boy by band of outsiders created the perfect outfit. one that is tailored and masculine, yet hugs curves. because a woman who is pretending to be a man who has womanly feelings should still stay in touch with his/her feminine side, don’t you think?
