Bohemian Trends – A bohemian history
The Bohemians and the Gypsies, in the most prevalent perceptions of both, shared some characteristics. Both groups are known for their vagabond lifestyle, for the pursuit of music, colour, and relationships.
The term Bohemianism ﬁrst emerged in the early nineteenth century during a time when ﬁnancially struggling artists, writers and musicians began to populate the lower-rent, lower class, Romani neighbourhoods of France. The term “mention an unconventional way of life, suggestive of people with shared interests in art, music and even spirituality. This is like a gypsy, it is mysterious and without the intent of extreme fashion. Bohemian style has, for over 200 years been an exotic alternative to the accepted fashions and is generally associated with artists, writers, and intellectuals, bohemian culture incorporates various ethic clothing styles. Is the term that proclaims the “Artist as Genius.” An artist was no longer someone with a particular talent, but became a special kind of person. In earlier times dress had signiﬁed social status, a trade, membership of a princely retinue, or a profession. Now for the ﬁrst time, dress became part of the performance of an individual personality.
Bohemian style consists of loose, colourful clothing and has been known now a days as Boho chic and hippie style. Bohemians stand out in a crowd representing a colourful counterculture based on creativity an indifference to social structures and traditions. Bohemian style came to be associated with young people hoping to distance themselves from the materialistic culture of past generations. Bohemian style gave birth to more modern counter culture styles.
The Bohemian lifestyle also has close ties to the celebration of music, and the Boho style is thus popular at festivals across the world, beginning in the ’60s and ’70s with hippies and the free-spirited who also encouraged an unconventional lifestyle.
Though fashion often embraces Boho chic, the life itself – the yearning for individual freedom, the rejection of modern materialistic concepts, the dream of utopian ideals, and production of hand-crafted goods remains a powerful alternative to mainstream culture. Now, it’s a way to express individuality. Typically characterized by splashes of colour, ﬂowing fabrics, patterns, ﬂowers and excessive accessories, the Boho chic style allows individuals to express their desire to break away from social norms and live unconventionally.
The “bohemian chic” in and of itself is a contradiction since it combines the dressed down and frugal aspects of bohemia with the smart and more expensive accouterments of chic fashion. fashion designers have increased the embellishment, craftsmanship, and material quality of their output, making it trends for years. While its prevalence cannot be denied, few women are turning to the bohemian trend in order to make a self-declarative statement of identity.
The positive thing here is that bohemian styles happen to be in sync with the kind of relaxed, wearable silhouettes that the modern woman favours and, as such, the trend is welcome in wardrobes around the world.
