The Skirt for man in the Gothic universe.

Gothic esthetism

dot  In our society, threatening for minority groups, aggressive by its technological projections, alienating by its media processes and its dictatorship of the pictures, the body remains a rampart to preserve, to find oneself, guarantor of a personal identity threatened by this technological and social environment. To be aware of their body, the Gothics will exacerbate their symbolic report with this one by expressing by clothing something of fundamental in their perception of the world. By the ornament, they nourish the body of symbols and cultivate it by symbols. The Gothic aesthetic universe expresses a rejection of rationalism to the profit of a personal passion. It is a means reaching a spirituality, considering reality differently and granting to the things a aesthetic major sens. The Gothic collective (concerts, exposures, dances) comes to support and reinforce this personal aesthetic research and to cause the will to open out in this aesthetic quest.

The Skirt in the male gothic look

"Only the darkness has the capacity to open to the world the heart of a man."
[ Paul Auster - "the catch room" ]

dot  The black vision suggested by Gothic esthetics returns to certain topics (the Gothic architecture, the Christian art, the vampires, the cinema of the fantastic, black films) like to a constant search for an expression of beauty in the tension, the strange and the decline. The gothic look corresponds to a style at the same time more or less sober and elegant. The esthetism is an essential criterion. The black is the prevalent color. The long black coats, the overcoats, the leather jackets and trousers, the neat hairstyle constitute the "traditional" elements of the male look.

dot  In the other criteria of beauty specific to the Gothic medium, we can find the make-up for men or the port of the Skirt. For the Gothics, it will be seen like something of esthetics and not dressing-up. The sexual differences attenuate through the look and the ornament. The androgyne aspect is developed to be different from the other cultures (the rap for example) and to be opposed to the values traditionally (and wrongfully) associated the masculine: mass production in factories, wars, consumer society,... The Gothic vestimentary style can be difficult to assume: sometimes for its androgyne side , sometimes for his occult connotations or its dictatorship of colors. The people do not recognize the individuals as "Gothics" and consequently develop their own system of categories such for example associating the port of the Skirt to a latent homosexuality.

Mais le symbole plus emblématique de la mode à la garçonne est la coupe de cheveux. Incarnée au cinéma par l’actrice Louise Brook, la coupe courte devient célèbre et est porté par toutes les femmes. Symbole d'émancipation, la coupe courte séduit et s'impose. En 1925, une femme sur trois aurait fait couper ses cheveux. Mais déjà en 1903, Colette arborait la coiffure courte. En mai 1917 Paul Morand écrit : « depuis 3 jours, c’est la mode de porter les cheveux courts. Toutes, elle suivent le mouvement, mené par Mme Letellier et Channel…». Les cheveux sont donc coiffés suivant la mode masculine, sous un chapeau cloche, à haute caloque cylindrique et dont les bords étroits tombent juste au dessus des sourcils. Les frères Antoine et René Rambaud devienne maitre dans l’art de cette coiffure qui fut renommer la coupe à la garçonne.

Je porte les jupes Hyatus depuis 3 ans, pour le sport et la ville.
Autour dr moi, les femmes y sont favorables et certains hommes sont prés à oser le port de la jupe

Bravo pour ce magnifique site
Dommage que les articles sur la jupe se fassent rares.
Je me suis mis à porter la jupe de temps en temps depuis un an. Au début difficile de s'aventurer en ville tant la crainte des regards est grande. Mais en fait, cela passe assez bien. Cependant, j'ai l'impression d'être bien seul et j'aimerais bien que d'autres osent et que ce vêtement puisse ainsi être porté plus facilement.
Je précise que je suis un jeune senior et c'est par plaisir que je porte la jupe. Liberté de mouvement, originalité, confort.
Espérant que tout cela évolue vite...
