Androgyny and fashion

ANGELIC... He wears high heels long time ago before Rick Owens. Leaned on a bar of the halles Saint Gery popular place of Brussels, he flaunts himself with his angelic face... With his ruffled skirt in the Mana romantic style, he remains a hunter which is waiting his hour... Gabrielle Lys. September 2007.

Androgyny in the history.

dot  After the First World War, the fashion of 1920 devoted the garçonne[1]. The figure of the androgyny occupied a considerable place there. The women bandaged their chest to erase it. The cuts of clothing avoided underlining the femininity of the bodies, gaining a new freedom to them. The war which had involved the men with the face, had opened the way of the emancipation to the women who, left their hearths, had occupied the functions hitherto exclusively reserved for the male sex. It is this indecision of the roles which generated perception that the loss of the traditional borders between men and women continued like a powerful factor of transformation of the world. Still today, the androgyny is perceived like the expression of a will to change the world.[2]

Androgyny in the fashion.

dot  The history of the mode abounds in scandals caused by the vestimentary and behavioral innovations. Rupture with the laid down rules of the collective, the fashion rupture is felt through the ages like a provocation. In the competition of the individuals and social groups for the control of their time and power, fashion takes place by touch or by radical caesura and it is felt like a powerful individual assertion. The fashion in its renewal, in its will to dissociate previous times, attack frontally their taboos.[2] And doesn't the androgyny remain a taboo of our time ?

Androgyny in my work of designer

dot  The world was born from the rupture of the perfect unit. It was born from the separation of the male principle and the principle female. The androgyne represents the perfect unit before the appearance of the world. It is located beyond the border where the masculine is distinguished from female and thus beyond the tensions and from the conflicts which are established between the two sexual poles of the life. The androgyne is perfect because the separation of the sexes is the image at the base of all the imperfections of the life.

dot  God who is at the same time One and All created the man with his image but created it male or female. Each man thus carries in him the androgyny. My research is that of a perfect model relating to the identity. I could discover only the images which proclaim the union of the opposites, the radical desire to be - man and woman - one in the other abolished. To coincide with divine is to find the preexistent unit.

dot  The fashion, material reality but spiritual activity is essential for me like symbolic quest of this research. there isn't other ways for me that to dig matters and forms in the search of this guiding principle. The fashion offers this field of experiments where the beauty is linked with itself as with its opposite by the myth of the androgyne...

J'ai toujours évolué dans un univers de travail exclusivement masculin : Le BTP.
En dehors de mon travail de directeur, j'ai toujours aimé porter des shorts en été, plutôt courts, et j'aime les vêtements plutôt androgyne ; en l'occurrence, j'aime beaucoup les vêtements féminins et autres jupes et robes de ces dames. Je peux dire qu'elles m'ont toujours donné l'envie de pouvoir les porter à mon tour. Elles sont pour moi source émancipation masculine !
J'ai une sensibilité plutôt féminine, j'aime autant le Rock que la poésie et la littérature...l'aventure, les rencontres, la photo, les gens !
J'ai aussi une tendance à contrecarrer toute discipline imposée, révolutionnaire depuis toujours contre les inégalités et les codes. Juste le fait que ce vêtement invite à la liberté m'impose d'y réfléchir et de m'inscrire dans un style qui réforme les choses convenues. J'aime que ma façon d'être et mon habillement suscite curiosité et quelque fois provocation !
Je découvre aujourd'hui - par plusieurs articles de presse de couturiers de la jupe, stylistes, et puis par votre blog et ...je vois que les quelques derniers posts un peu provoc sur facebook suscitent les réactions : Ah le foutu regard des autres !
Par contre, tout ce que je découvre - enfin - sur cet univers laissé en jachère depuis la Révolution Française n'est pas vraiment dans un style novateur : Tartans et kilts écossais, tenues "celtiques", etc, ou alors le noir "punk".
j'ai vraiment l'impression (mais je n'ai encore pas franchi le premier pas !) que si ce vêtement sortait de ces caricatures vieillottes (je n'ai pas dit moches !) alors le vieux fantômes du déguisement et du travestissement tiendrait encore longtemps la barre haute aux idées reçues.
J'ai dit en début d'année que je tenterai l'expérience et je le ferai...mais pas n'importe comment. Je prendrai soin de ne pas choquer, en tous cas j'essaierai. J'ai vraiment envie que l'expérience devienne une réalité "vivable" au quotidien. Mon nouveau travail (gérant d'un bar qui se voudrait le plus possible alternatif) va forcément m'aider dans ma démarche.
En tous cas, je suis content de vous avoir découvert...
