Why Not Sneeze Rrose Selavy?

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

In my Art History class, we are currently studying Dadaism and Surrealism. With these art movements, one obviously cannot pass up Marcel Duchamp, the French artist most associated with the two. Aside from his interesting and seemingly random pieces such as his "fountain", he was also a famed cross dresser often displaying himself as Rrose Selavy. My professor declared the following class as "Rrose Selavy Day" in which my classmates and I received extra credit if we take part and celebrate by cross dressing.
So, in thinking of Marcel Duchamp (and Rrose Selavy), here are some of my current favorite menswear inspired pieces.
