A Portrait of Decadence

Andreja Pejic X J'Aton

Publication: Collection Magazine


The fundamental questions that the Pejics—and before her the Grace Joneses and David Bowies—of the fashion world inspire often attract controversy.

Although high-end fashion trends seldom reflect society at large, significant trends introduce progressive ideas that filter through to the mainstream. It merits noting that when Yves Saint Laurent and André Courrèges first introduced women’s pants into their collections, the majority of the population rejected the garment. Like Katharine Hepburn sporting trousers in 1930s Hollywood, Pejic donning a J’Aton suit and couture gown in 2011 certainly creates a fracture in the structure of gender stereotypes.
