The Look of the Season? Bohemian Style


Style By Photo by Chase Pellerin

In post-WWII Paris, the intellectual cafĂ© society championed be-bop, jazz and the existential thought of Jean-Paul Sartre. They gathered in the Rive Gauche (Left Bank) district, promoting bohemian cool in Paris and beyond. In America, the beats, feminists and hippies were disrupting societal norms extending, not least of all, to style. Out of this cauldron of intellectual creativity came the modern iterations of bohemian style, trickling down through popular culture in France, Britain and the U.S. through the ’70s and on into our current decade. The style is highlighted by natural fabrics, casual fits and creative modification. In times like these, it’s worth remembering the disruptive trends of centuries past, and at the very least let their revolutionary thoughts influence your style.
