How Måneskin challenges fashion and gender stereotypes by their non-conformity

 On May 22 2021, Italy won the Eurovision Crystal Microphone thanks to Måneskin, a group of glam rock formed by 4 young Italians who have fallen in love with Europe and have become very popular on the networks thanks to their peculiar style.

Part of this success is due to their authentic style, which mixes the most aesthetic vintage and transgressor with latex, heels, eyeliner and the clothes genderless. A whole love letter to the world of rock from the 70s and 80s that would move Alessandro Michele himself.

The Custom burgundy metallic leather suits were adorned with gold ties, dark silver studs and intricate fil-coupe detailing.
While Victoria, the bassist, wore a more demure and authentically sixties jumpsuit, her teammates took more risks, using Damiano a bib with nothing underneath and boots with a large platform, Ethan (drums) a two-piece pants and vest with tie and Thomas (guitarist), only pants, jacket and XXL tie.
