10 Times Lenny Kravitz challenged gender roles with fashion
Jokes aside, and apart from his successful music career, Lenny Kravitz is indeed a fashion icon in his own right. His laid-back demeanour, playful attitude and casual vibe is visibly seen with his fashion choices. Known to be a rock and roll music star, his eclectic choices fleet from fitted leather pants, heavy jewellery and a chest-baring vest, to a more relaxed one, which involves flared bell-bottom jeans and a floral shirt.
Both are very differing aesthetics, but that's what makes his style so intriguing. But also, we love how he pushes the envelope with choices that challenge heteronormative gender norms. Hot pink trousers? Yeah, why not! A fitted paisley print? Sure!
With news of London Fashion Week going gender-neutral, and brands following suit, not to mention influential superstars like Timothèe Chalamet and Harry Styles, who also have the same gender-blurring outlook on fashion, we thought it apt to pay homage to the icon that was ahead of the curve.
Below, we recount his best looks on Instagram, which also happen to break conventional societal norms.
