Men Wear Heels at J.W. Anderson's London Fashion Show

Purses, platforms, and "mankles" strutted down the runway at the designer's men's show.

J.W. Anderson's men's show in London presented high-fashion cross-dressing on Tuesday, with male models carrying leather purses, sporting layers of thick bangles, and stomping down the runway in high-heeled, platform loafers.

The models' ankles — or "mankles" — were heavily exposed, showing that hems for men can only get higher. The mankles themselves were sandwiched between patterned capri pants and lace-up loafers fit for a 90's school girl.

While Anderson's high heels may only appeal to a select audience, he certainly nailed his adrogynous aesthetic. Maybe 2014 will finally be the year of the murse.
