While Acne's fall fashion line is not a gender-neutral collection, its ad campaign is gender-blurring as it features a 12 year old boy in women's clothing. The model is the son of Acne's own art director -- Frasse Johansson wears chunky heels, a long pink hourglass coat and artistic sunglasses in the campaign.

The gender-blurring ad campaign is definitely meant to garner attention but is also meant to illuminate the current agender fashion movement and its reflection of modern society. More and more gender-neutral clothing and fashion collections are coming out, like the Veritecouer Fall Winter 2015 Collection. These lines outline society's growing acceptance of those who do not want to classify themselves as male or female but prefer to remain androgynous.
