I feel less hippie. Bobo chic was associated in particular with punks in the SoHo area of Lower Manhattan , to the south of Greenwich Village.
The aroma of Gauloises and Gitanes was, for many years, thought to be an inseparable feature of Parisian café society, but the owner of Les Deux Magots , once frequented by Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir , Albert Camus and other writers, observed that "things have changed.
The writers of today are not so addicted to cigarettes". The bohemian traits of post-war Paris spread to other urban parts of the French-speaking world, notably to Algiers , where an underground culture of "jazz clubs, girls and drugs" grew up - in the words of punk rock producer Marc Zermati , who was in the city at the height of the Algerian war in the late s, "all very French".
In major industrial and student unrest in Paris and other parts of France came close to ousting the government of President Charles de Gaulle , who, after leading the Free French during the Second World War, had returned to power at the time of the Algerian emergency.
The events of represented a further significant landmark in post-war France,  although their longer term impact was probably more on cultural, social and academic life than on the political system, which, through the constitution of the Fifth Republic , has remained broadly intact. Its students were more modish and "trendy" than those of the Sorbonne in the city's Latin Quarter , being described at the time in terms that typify more generally the styles and attitudes of young people the late s:.
It is the girls that give the show away - culottes , glossy leather, mini-skirts , boots - driving up in Mini-Coopers Rebellious sentiment is more obvious among the boys: The picture in Nanterre in May was lots and lots of painted dollies cohabiting with unkempt revolutionaries.
In the United States adherents of the " beat " counter-culture probably best defined by Jack Kerouac 's novel, On the Road , set in the late s, written in and published in were associated with black polo-neck or turtle neck sweaters, blue denim jeans and sandals. The influence of this movement could be seen in the persona and songs of Bob Dylan in the early to mids, "road" films like Easy Rider and the punk -oriented "New Wave" of the mids, which, among other things, produced a boho style icon in Deborah Harry of the New York band Blondie , whom photographer David LaChapelle has described as "the definition of cool ".
New York's Greenwich Village , which, since the late 19th century, had attracted many women with feminist or " free love " ideals,  was a particular magnet for bohemians in the early s. Bob Dylan's girl-friend Suze Rotolo , who appeared with him on the cover of his second album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan , recalled that the Village was "where people like me went — people who didn't belong where they came from..
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band , is said to have caused the guru of psychedelia, Timothy Leary , to remark that "my work is finished". The documentary film, Festival Murray Lerner , , recorded how the "clean-cut college kids" who attended the Newport Rhode Island Folk Festival in had, by when Bob Dylan caused a sensation at that year's festival by playing an electric guitar , become "considerably scruffier": The London art dealer Jeremy Maas reflected in the mids that.
It was observed by all of us who were involved with these exhibitions [of pre-Raphaelite paintings] that visitors included increasing numbers of the younger generation, who had begun to resemble the figures in the pictures they had come to see. Jimmy Page of the British band Led Zeppelin , who collected Pre-Raphaelite paintings, observed of Edward Burne-Jones that "the romance of the Arthurian legends [captured in his paintings] and the bohemian life of the artists who were reworking these stories seemed very attuned to our time",  while the author David Waller noted in that Burne-Jones' subjects "have much in common with the sixties rock chicks and their pop-star paladins ".
Although the annual Saturday Book recorded in a view that "London's now nothing but flash coffee bars, with teddies and little bits of girls in jeans",  the "Edwardian" " teddy boy " look of the times did not coincide with Bohemian tastes. For women, the legacy of the "New Look" was still apparent, although hemlines had generally risen as, as one journalist put it in , "photographs of those first bold bearers of the New Look make them seem strangely lost and bewildered, as though they had mistaken their cue and come on stage fifty years late".
However, when the singer Alma Cogan wished to mark her success by buying mink coats for her mother and sister, the actress Sandra Caron, the latter asked for a duffel-coat instead because she wanted to be regarded as a serious actress and "a sort of a beatnik".
In Iris Murdoch 's novel, The Bell , an art student named Dora Greenfield bought "big multi-coloured skirts and jazz records and sandals".
However, as Britain emerged from post-war austerity , some Bohemian women found influences from continental Europe, adopting, for example, the " gamine look", with its black jerseys and short, almost boyish hairstyles associated with film actresses Audrey Hepburn Sabrina , , and as a "Gréco beatnik"  in Funny Face , and Jean Seberg Bonjour Tristesse , and A bout de souffle , , as well as the French novelist Françoise Sagan , who, as one critic put it, "was celebrated for the variety of her partners and for driving fast sports cars in bare feet as an example of the free life".
Others favoured the lower-cut, tighter styles of continental stars such as Bardot or Gina Lollobrigida. Valerie Hobson was among those whose wardrobe drew on Italian couture ; in addition to a large collection of stiletto heeled shoes, she possessed a skirt made from python skin. In , when the Beatles then an obscure Liverpudlian combo with five members, as opposed to their eventual "fab" four were working in Hamburg , West Germany, they were influenced by a Bohemian "art school" set known as Exis for "existentialists".
The Exis were roughly equivalent to what in France became known as les beats and included photographer Astrid Kirchherr for whom the " fifth Beatle " Stuart Sutcliffe left the group and artist and musician Klaus Voormann who designed the cover for the Beatles' album Revolver in John Lennon 's wife Cynthia recalled that Kirchherr was fascinated by the Beatles' "teddy-boy style", but that they, in turn, were "bowled over by her hip black clothes, her avant garde way of life, her photography and her sense of style".
Beatlemania did not of itself create the apparent iconoclasm of the s; however, as one writer put it, "just as Noël Coward and Cole Porter reflected the louche, carefree attitude of the [Nineteen] Twenties, so did the Beatles' music capture the rhythm of breaking free experienced by an entire generation of people growing up in the Sixties". These included the military and Victorian fashions popularised by stars who frequented boutiques such as Granny Takes a Trip , the "fusion of fashion, art and lifestyle" opened by Nigel Waymouth in the King's Road , Chelsea in January ,  and, by , the hippie look largely imported from America although, as noted, London stores such as Biba had, for some time, displayed dresses that drew on Pre-Raphaelite imagery .
The Rolling Stones ' Keith Richards , whose early girl friend, Linda Keith , had, in her late teens, been a bohemian force in West Hampstead , noted on the Stones' return from an American tour in how quickly hippiedom had transformed the London scene. This fusion of influences was discernible in two black-and-white productions for BBC television in On the face of it, Carroll a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson had been a rather conventional and repressed Oxford University don , but he was a keen and artistic photographer in the early days of that medium taking, among other things, rather bohemian looking pictures of Alice Liddell and other young girls  and he developed an empathy and friendship with several of the Pre-Raphaelites;  the sculptor Thomas Woolner and possibly even Rossetti dissuaded him from illustrating Alice himself,  a task that was undertaken instead by John Tenniel.
The imagery of Alice , both textually and graphically, lent itself well to the psychedelia of the late s. By the late s shops such as Laura Ashley whose first London outlet opened in  were routinely promoting the "peasant look" and selling a range of "uniquely eccentric clothes The magic was being able to step into a 'Laura Ashley' dress and imagine you had found something out of a dressing-up box".
However, the much-publicised incidence of " bra burning " in the s tended to be overstated and came to be satirised: It was also seen by many, including Greer herself, as a distraction from the cause of women's "liberation". I realize Playtex [underwear manufacturer] had supported me better than any man I know. By the mids, the American singer Madonna had turned the bra into a positive, even provocative, fashion statement.
Madonna's flamboyant and gritty style notably seen to bohemian effect alongside Rosanna Arquette in the film, Desperately Seeking Susan was, in turn, a precursor of so-called " girl power " that was associated in the s with various prominent young women such as singers Courtney Love , who played the Glastonbury Festival in a headline-grabbing pink bra,  and the more commercially oriented Spice Girls and offbeat or quirky American television series Xena: Journalist Bob Stanley remarked that "the late s are never entirely out of fashion, they just need a fresh angle to make them de jour ".
In the mid-to-late s, variants of the short and fundamentally un-Bohemian rah-rah skirt which originated with cheerleaders were combined with leather or demin to create a look with some Bohemian or even gothic features for example, by the singing duo Strawberry Switchblade who took inspiration from s punk fashion .
These drew on, among other influences, the style, popular in retrospect, of Talitha Getty died , actress wife of John Paul Getty and step-granddaughter of Dorelia McNeil, who was represented most famously in a photograph of her and her husband taken by Patrick Lichfield in Marrakesh , Morocco in In the early 21st century, "boho-chic" was associated initially with supermodel Kate Moss and then, as a highly popular style in , with actress Sienna Miller.
In America similar styles were sometimes referred to as " bobo -" or "ashcan chic", or " luxe grunge ", their leading proponents including actresses Mary-Kate Olsen and Zooey Deschanel. As if to illustrate the cyclical nature of fashion, by the end of the noughties strong pre-Raphaelite traits were notable in, among others, singer Florence Welch , model Karen Elson and designer Anna Sui. In Germany, terms like Bionade-Bourgeoisie , Bionade-Biedermeier or Biohème refer to former Bohemians that gained a sort of Cultural hegemony with their LOHA lifestyle  - The phenomen of such former young bohemians becoming establishment during the years is a typical aspect of gentrification processes.

Florence Nightingale's observations regarding the foxgloves are noted in correspondence of her friend, the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell , whose acquaintance with Effie Ruskin dated back to their schooldays.
However, it is unclear when Nightingale herself met Effie: Gaskell was especially well connected. Gaskell was among a group visiting nearby Pomfret Castle when Adam received news of the Trent incident that, in the early stages of the American Civil War almost brought Britain and the Union to war: Tilley was actively involved in recruitment for war service and was happily married to her songwriter, Walter de Frece , who was later knighted and became a Member of Parliament.
Offering to assist her, Clive had suggested to Twine that "it will be more or less guess-work on my part — in the bag put one pair of thin com — er — lady's summer underwear". Rhoda asked if Twine "could just manage a pair of cami-knickers and a Princess petticoat ". As early as , in Travers' début novel The Dippers , Pauline Dipper's "black silk petticoat [did not] extend unduly, and it was possible to esteem the shapely outline of calf and instep, compressed in stockings of the same material" chapter III.
Also in The Dippers , a young woman tried to start a conversation about "hygienic underclothing for ladies" with a man she mistakenly believed to have written articles on the subject: Almost 70 years after Lombard's death, the Sunday Times described red lipstick as the " ne plus ultra [not further beyond] of make up We respect red lipstick as a badge of loveliness and youth Georgia May , bold style Florence Welch , sexual confidence Scarlett Johansson and old-school glamour Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — and, above all, we appreciate that it doesn't work for everyone": Shane Watson in Style , 4 December Europe Goes to War Hastings himself rejected the notion that the years immediately before the war represented some sort of golden age.
The term, "vamp" after "vampire" , was associated in particular with the silent film actress Theda Bara — Portrait of an Anti-Star. Other recent examples of the s style bob have included Gemma Arterton in St. Dietrich made clear her personal preference for such clothes: I think I am much more alluring Punch , 30 March In contrast to Vadim, who had not turned twenty, Allégret —73 was in middle age when he directed Hobson.

He resigned the following year and died in A later historian contrasted the stature of de Gaulle with "the soap opera lives" of Presidents Sarkozy and Hollande A year later, he and Cher were "feted" at the Dorchester Hotel in London and "presented to the world" by Ahmet Ertegun: A Freewheelin' Time, op.
See also Fiona MacCarthy , op. So, a few years later, were Diana Vickers and another teenaged singer, Pixie Lott. Following an event in , the Daily Mail commented about Vickers that. The year-old, who spent much of her time on the ITV show running around barefoot, opted to cover up her feet with the charity shop footwear. The footwear drew attention away from the singer's stylish sixties style black and red dress which was split open at the back to reveal her bra.
For her part, Pixie Lott cited French screen goddess Brigitte Bardot and Edie Sedgwick as her fashion icons — and Factory Girl as her favourite film — and defined her look as "vintage clothes, which I mix with contemporary stuff, or I'll be indie and hippie, with accessories such as rings, chains and headbands I like to wear girlie things, but only if I can rock them up with biker boots or a jacket".
The impact of boho illustrated certain broader trends in what Shane Watson referred to as "the way we dress now": Once they had spotted new fashions, young women were not prepared to wait a season for them to become available and, consequently, the familiar boundaries between summer wear and that for autumn and winter were becoming blurred.
As Jane Shepherdson , brand director of the clothing chain Topshop , put it, "when Sienna wore that gilet, we had to pull them forward fast She was doing boho in the autumn, and we were expecting it to be a trend for the following spring.
Girls see it and they want it immediately". The practice of meeting such demand, pioneered by the Spanish firm Zara , and of which Shepherdson, until she left Topshop in , was the leading British proponent,  became known as " fast fashion ". By Midsummer , the Sunday Times had discerned a trend that fused aspects of boho-chic with " heavy metal attitude": A look described by the Sunday Times in Autumn as "modern goth" was a more stylised version, exuding a " bondage vibe" and contrasting "soft, light fabrics The gothic look was in vogue again in the autumn of , a sleeker "dark Victorian style" being associated with, among others, Sienna Miller, twin actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen through their clothing label, The Row , the Australian model Gemma Ward  and the rising Ukrainian singer Mika Newton the latter notably in photographs associated with her début album of , Anomaliya.
In Nicole Scherzinger , lead vocalist of the Pussycat Dolls , described her off-stage image as "understated-rock-boho-chic",  while, in the autumn of , under the heading "Boho with bite", the Mail on Sunday advised readers after "dark, soft, floaty fabrics [to] flirt heavily with leather and lace, kohl and killer heels" and to "think laid-back cool with a shot of vamp ".
Welch has cited as her stylistic icons singer Marianne Faithfull , who had been closely associated with the Rolling Stones in the s,  and her former English teacher who used to "come to school in crushed- velvet gowns like a medieval maiden  However, her stage image, which owed much to her long dyed red hair ,  called to mind the pre-Raphaelite muses  who, in certain respects, had anticipated the hippie styles of a century later.
Reflecting on Welch's broader influence, one rock journalist noted in that "even Cheryl Cole [of Girls Aloud and an X Factor judge] has gone gothic princess on her Elson told a Times journalist that she had always been "the weird looking one" in modelling circles and remarked of herself and her then husband Jack White of the rock duo White Stripes that "there's going to be a point when our children view us as the Addams Family ".
Like Welch, Elson exuded pre-Raphaelite features, though a marked gothic strain was also apparent when, as a singer on stage in , she wore a long salmon dress with black lace edging.
Similarly, her lingerie portfolio that year for Agent Provocateur combined gothic and boho-rock features,  there being, for example, a certain resonance between a black and white brassiere and panties set that formed part of that collection and the black swimsuit in which Zooey Deschanel was photographed in In some detected a pre-Raphaelite line to the Alexander McQueen dress, designed by Sarah Burton , for Catherine Middleton 's wedding to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge ,  Middleton's somewhat medieval headdress called to mind images from paintings by such later pre-Raphaelites as John Waterhouse and Edward Burne-Jones ,  the overall impression being especially apparent in a side-on double page photograph of the couple by Max Mumby on the cover of the following day's edition of the London Times.
In advance of Glastonbury , the Sunday Times coined the term "festival chic", for a style with some similarities to boho. Almost an extension of "festival chic", the Telegraph coined the term "foho" to describe the evolution of the boho style in the summer of The London Evening Standard referred to "hippie chic" a term used in the s with reference to the velvet kaftans created by Tom Ford for the Italian house of Gucci in a feature about "gypsy queens",  while the Sunday Times , reflecting on what "the fashion world called This image was described by Lisa Armstrong as "typif[ying] the luxe bohemian look".
In the United States, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen , especially the former, were credited with a "homeless" look, first identified as such in Greenwich Village , New York in late , that had many "boho" features large sunglasses, flowing skirts, boots and loose jumpers.
This was sometimes referred to as "ashcan chic". Bobo chic was associated in particular with punks in the SoHo area of Lower Manhattan , to the south of Greenwich Village. It was described by a student fashion writer as "paying to look poor" and having been "made popular by silver screen stars who all look like they got dressed in the dark like the Olsen twins, Kirsten Dunst and Chloë Sevigny ".
I actually looked homeless". A " catwalk ", a refinement in , of which actresses Kate Bosworth and Thandie Newton were said to be exponents, was referred to as "cocktail grunge" — "looking done-undone Momsen described her style as "sweet and tough, grunge meets Chanel — a giant oxymoron " and claimed that she chose her outfits from "whatever clean clothes she finds on her floor" "although no one ever believes me".
In the world of Parisian fashion, the term bobo short for Bourgeois Bohème , which also had political connotations, was applied to "typically discerning customers who are left wing and Left Bank ";  or, put another way, "that subset of thirty- or forty-something -year-olds who don't allow their socialist leanings to interfere with an enjoyment of material pleasures".
The bobo style of dress has been described as "retro-hippie- shabby-chic ",  its elements including jersey tops, boiled wool jackets, smart jeans , Converse training shoes and leather bags by Jerome Dreyfuss born Simplicity is true elegance".
She herself professed a liking for vintage clothing:. I think they look best like that, slightly dishevelled. Some of the teenaged rock bands, such as Second Sex  and the Plastiscines , that emerged in France c. The name "Bourgeois Boheme" was adopted in by a British company, founded by Alicia Lai, that marketed "ethnically sourced" fashion accessories and cosmetics and, by , had moved into handmade shoes crafted from such materials as hemp and organic cotton. Although boho-chic in the early years of the 21st century represented a definite style, it was not a "movement.
In fact, most of the components of boho had, in one way or another, drifted in and out of fashion since the " Summer of Love " of when hippiedom and psychedelia were at their peak. As journalist Bob Stanley put it, "the late s are never entirely out of fashion, they just need a fresh angle to make them de jour ". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
