Ever since the award-winning musician began venturing into the field of style, he’s been upfront about championing gender-fluid fashion and pushing the envelope. Just look at his recent MET Gala entrance, donning a tartan skirt. With this in mind, we’re thrilled to see how this artist is going to unveil a comprehensive collection of clothing and accessories that break free from conventional gender boundaries, serving a diverse and contemporary crowd.
