V MAGAZINE - DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: JAMES FLEMONS OF PHLEMUNS
Within the world of fashion, we take it for granted that the lines between the textbook “male” and “female” gender binaries are truly not so clear, or perhaps even necessary. If we learned anything this previous November, it was that this progressive view is not shared by the whole of the country, reminding us to commend those who’ve helped push the envelope in the right direction.
PHLEMUNS designer James Flemons is, undoubtedly, one of the standouts in that particular gender-free realm with his up-and-coming line. His ability to turn stereotypically feminine womenswear into something less conventional for men has caught the attention of style icons like Solange and Rihanna, both of whom have worn PHLEMUNS on numerous occasions.
