The Xavi Reyes menswear collection for Fall/Winter 2016 celebrated gender-fluid styling and was presented at Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Madrid. A part of the fashion week's EGO event, this runway presentation married vibrant prints with metallic textures while referencing nostalgic menswear from the 70s.

In addition to metallic disco tops and sequined streetwear picks, this Xavi Reyes menswear collection also celebrated masculine beauty looks. Male models took to the runway stage with flushed cheeks and bright red lips.

This androgynous use of red lipstick illustrates a growing fad among male consumers who are looking to up their skincare, grooming or cosmetic routine. In addition to its gender-fluid aesthetic, this collection also celebrates consumers' growing designer for male-specific makeup that promotes androgyny.
