The BKc, women’s wear: To all of the ladies that have emailed and marched into the stores requesting BKc women’s clothing:
Historically many women have changed the view of femininity by going against the standard. Grace Jones embraced her androgyny and was ahead of her time in so doing. Katharine Hepburn rather the comforts of trousers and a men’s dress-shirt as opposed to dresses. Iris Chacon loved her muscular features and defied the standards of beautiful women.
Joan of Arc went to war in a full armor, although the odds were against her. Today, Janelle Monae takes on the dapper style of the rockabilly or colonel sanders to be exact and is now changing the face of music and the incorporation of menswear without losing her femininity. Blazers, trousers and oxfords are now being incorporated in the wardrobes of women who are comfortable with being just that; a women with a love for menswear.
