Clothes of the style of the last century and the present time: similarities and differences
Hipsters - style of dress, youth subculture or lifestyle? Translated into English, the dude is a hipster. However, it is impossible to confuse hipsters and dudes in clothes. In this part, they differ dramatically.
Dandies: grandparents and grandchildren
Consider the dudes born at the turn of two millennia, and their grandparents - dudes of the middle of the last century. What is the difference between them? What unites the representatives of different periods of the "dudes" subculture? Fashion style? The photos in the article clearly demonstrate this. According to the first two, it seems that there is nothing in common between the fashionable youth of the past and our contemporaries, but take a look at the two bottom shots: one is a dude, the other is a hipster. Find the differences. The fact is that the inner worldview of the dudes of both generations is similar. Both those and others, of course, show the direction in which the whole society is moving. This is the secret of this style.On the one hand - the antipodes, and on the other - a complete copy. This concerns not only and not so much clothes, but rather the spiritual sphere, because fashion for clothes is always more than just a “bow”. Any couturier will say: "In order for the model to look harmonious, it must feel the image that the master created." Only in this case, the photo session and fashion shows will be successful and will make the public want to complement their wardrobe with his creations.
Dandies from Valery Todorovsky
In recent years, after the release of Valery Todorovsky’s movie of the same name, street style has been replenished with one more. Modern clothes in the style of the 40-50s-olds are bright and colorful fabrics, very feminine dresses for girls, jackets in a colorful cage for boys, extremely wide or too narrow pants, tall smooth hairstyles with hair, expressive accessories .
Young people organize theme parties, which they dress up in fashion 70 years ago. Looking at them, it is impossible not to smile. The slim waist of the girls is elegantly emphasized by the fluffy layered petticoats, worn under the dresses.What could be more feminine and more beautiful than the Diorov X-silhouette of a “new bow” and narrow sheath dresses, tailored according to complex patterns, representing a figure resembling an hourglass and knee-length or slightly lower? Accessories, bright, large and catchy, expressively contrast with the material of the suit. The clothes of the 50s-style dandies were sewed from the most fashionable fabrics in the middle of the last century, of course, then it was synthetic, now it can be put on only for the sake of outrageousness, if you manage to get it, - nylon, polyester, crimplain, bologna, acetate and the like have long gone into the category of rare.
Soviet dudes, or “Against whom are friends?”
Interestingly, the Soviet style of clothing was perceived hostile hostility, as a vulgar bad taste and a manifestation of rootless cosmopolitanism. However, after several years, the domestic light industry began producing the very stylish sweaters with deer and colorful fabrics in the notorious peas, stripes and cages. The fact that they had recently been carried to pieces, for which they were expelled from the Komsomol and expelled from the institute, suddenly became decent and was recommended as quite appropriate for the builders of communism. Now hippies and beatniks were declared enemies of society.
Are the dandies of the past - craftsmen-craftsmen or elements that undermine social foundations?
Where did the Soviet dudes take their outfits? Clothing repainted and reworked by craftsmen from the one that was sold in stores. Much was purchased from fartsovschikov or brought by parents from overseas travel.
By and large, for the country behind the Iron Curtain, everything that penetrated us through the cordon, bypassing the legal ways, bore a shade of style. It concerned not only clothes. Both music, literature, and cinema - any visual art and technique fell under this category. Dandies were masters of all trades, they were distinguished by enterprise and an active lifestyle, which they were forced to hide.
The main difference between the style of the past and the present is the question of patriotism.
The main difference regarding the mentality of hipsters and hipsters is that the dudes idolized the United States of America. The word "dude", which was used in communication as a designation of his proven and worthy guy, was decoded as "a person who respects high American culture."The current hipster hipsters, in contrast, to the age-old Russian, to intelligence. Thick facial hair is an indispensable part of the image of the modern dudes. Beards, the fact that from time immemorial periodically caused great disagreements in our country, and abroad was perceived as an integral part of the look of the Russian peasant, is also a component of a stylish image. A beard, a balalaika and a bear on a string are the average Russian, according to a limited inhabitant of the Euro-American hinterland.
The modern hipster, a la 2015, is easy to recognize by the way you dress. Low-key colors, voluminous scarves, rolled around the neck, as if a person is cold, and this is the only way to warm a cold throat. Shaped knitted hats or hats with borders, canvas bags, natural fiber fabrics, horn-rimmed glasses - hipster-style clothing resembles the wardrobe of fringes from city dumps or beggars of intellectuals. This is the image of people who do not have the opportunity to buy new fashion items. Everything is so, but clothes in the style of hipster style are usually complemented by the latest model of iPhone for fifty thousand rubles and a train of very expensive perfume.
The attitude of young people - hipsters and hipsters
Clothing of hipsters and hipsters shows that adherents of this style, loving life, appreciating the advanced achievements in science and technology, feel uncomfortable in the realities of modern morality, a little at ease, or something. And those and others - or the children of rich parents, or trying to show that they are from such an environment. They, sometimes not giving themselves in this report, more subtly than others feel disunity and contradiction in social structures and how they are able to reject the modern and false morality of adults that they are contemporary with.
