- What is necessary to make? known as the Small Prince.
- It is necessary to be very patient, answered the Fox.
You will sit down yourself initially a little far from me, like that, in grass.
I will look at you corner of the eye and you will say nothing.
The language causes misunderstanding.
But, each day, you will be able to sit down a little more close...
[Antoine de Saint Exupéry]

Men in Skirt

dot  The past
Current in the past, (remember the Greek tunic to the warlike little skirt of the Roman soldier), the skirt is today still the attribute of men in a lot of countries, and sometimes even their exclusiveness : Pakistani shalwar kamiz ,North-African caftan or Scottish kilt... On the history of the 2500 year old humanity, there is less than 250 years in Europe, the man still wore skirts tunics or kilt.
However, the centuries saw the women borrowing little by little all the elements of male garde-robe, to start with the hat, at the 16th century, while passing by the jackets of man at the 18th century (for hunting, horsemanship), to finish by the trousers , so revolutionary, at the beginning of the 20th century.
dot  Our modern society
since two centuries, our modern society has put acccent on the side output, effectiveness and action of the man. With the time of industrialization, the men, considered as machines, were to be useful and profitable. Consequently, any "decorative" clothing in opposition to functional was banished from male guard wraps. Thus was born the trousers such as we know it since 1820. Much more practical to work in the factories of mass production. With the skirt, low-sticking but also gradually jewels and hats disappeared.
The woman, more expansive, continued to discover other clothing and other styles, to dress herself according to its personality or its mood. This becomes with the wire of time, a right for her. But this freedom was always connected with the concern of taking care of harmonizing colors, clothing and silhouette well to build a harmonious image.
Our modern society has an annoying tendency to all to catalogue, all to label, all to divide: one is of left or one is of right-hand side. One is for or one is against. One is man or one is woman. And for obvious reasons of profitability in the marketing and mass production, clothing was divided into two categories: men shops and woman shops.
Victim of 2 centuries of taboos, the man's guard wraps was reduced with an strict panoply, keeping only the necessary one to its work to completely forsake the Skirt, clothing with more contemplative dimension, where the female connotation could make fear that his sex and can be especially his sexual orientation are called in question.
dot  Today.
The liberalization of the woman (symbolized by her conquest of the trousers ) obliges us to take part in this evolution which goes in the direction of a meeting, an alliance between our conscious dimension and our unconscious dimension. Thus the Men out of Skirt appeared.

Sometimes, the warrior of the Light has the impression to live two lives in parallel. In one, he is obliged to do all that he does not want, to fight for ideas in which he does not believe. But there is another life, and he discovers it in his dreams, his readings, his meetings with beings which think like him. The warrior allows his two lives to approach. "There is a bridge which connects what I make and what I will like to do" he thinks. Little by little, his dreams invade its routine, until the moment he feels ready for what he always wished. Then, it is enough to a little audacity, and the two lives do nothing any more but one (extracted from "Handbook of the Warrior of the Light". Paulo Coelho)
Although undergoing a psychological insulation, we are some in Belgium and to elsewhere dare to leave in skirt in the street. We cannot justify our acts by the claim on a practical side (whereas it was the principal reason for womens out of trousers ). It is however better to support heat. What motivates us: the different feelings from those of the trousers, the pleasure of the change, the research of entirety to be it.
If these explorations can make scandal today, it is because it do not have any utility (the practical side is reduced) and because it terribly call into question the image of the Man, taboo subject. Not, the Man is not this carapace which the costume illustrates so well (substitute of industrial times to the armour), he can be sensitive, sensual. This sensuality can relate to other fields that those, agreed, like good wine or expensive food. The man has a body and he has the right to show it in a context other than sporting (which context is reassuring because his power does not call) or estival.
We want not to drive back any more what a traditional education regards being as specifically female. We know that in the past (Antiquity, the Average Age or the modern time), our similar got dressed with skirts or dresses (and sticking). Inserted in a consumer society increasingly more demanding, we want to live fully in a comfortable and elegant dress, adapted to our morphology without calling into question our male condition. we refuse the monolithic male image conveyed since the appearance of the industrial society. We suffer from one miss vestimentary freedom, of a lack of recognition in our sensitivity. We suffer from one miss vestimentary freedom, of a lack of recognition in our sensitivity.

SELF-PORTRAIT :
"Winter's cityside,
Crystal bits of snowflakes,
All around my head and in the wind,
I had no illusions.
That I'd ever find a glimpse
Of summer's heatwaves in your eyes
You did what you did to me,
Now it's history I see,
Here's my comeback on the road again."

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.
