Fashion Direction
Celebrating androgynous, fluid identity and the spirit of the non-conformist – monochrome, bluenote nails and a felt trilby sets the Genderless fashion tone.

Color Direction
The story of the season might be about being gender neutral, but today’s most beautiful shades are all about the extreme, with the palest blondes and the deepest blue-blacks.

Styling Direction
Opt for a textured crop, or for those who are truly daring, the buzzcut, to achieve the the Genderless look.

A cooler take on last season's Urban Sport, Athleisure comes with a twist – graphic shapes, statement accessories, retro styling and bags of color put a playful spin on an effortless, luxurious trend.

Color Direction
This isn’t about all-over color. Modern burgundies shimmer and shine in deep, dark, glossy hair.

Styling Direction
Go for a textured, cool look – slick back & relax!
