The answer is simple: the style originated in the 1920s and 1930s in France and Italy. It is characterized by knee lifts and bent forward with knees tucked down as if to protect the knees. This gives the look of a woman with knees covered in a binder, which is what I saw today.
But now, it is the look of many flappers.
Why does it seem so French?
The style comes from Paris’s gay and boho scene of the 1930s and was born in imitation of Parisian flappers, who were born either French or Jewish. A little bit of both helped fashion the look.
The first flapper to put the leg on the hip was French, Louis Boulle in the 1930s.
Now, there is a very subtle difference between French and Italian. French designers typically prefer more feminine designs – for example, high heels. Italian designers are more adventurous in design – so the style that many flappers are wearing today is an Italian variation of the style.
Is it common?
I don’t know. In the United States flappers can be found for a majority of styles of clothing. In London and France flappers are limited to the gay and gay-oriented neighborhoods where they live. I know of few places in England that still have gay boho fashion.
Is there any history?
Flappers originated from Paris, but not all flapper styles are based on vintage designs from the city. The style’s origins are traced through the gay culture of the 1920s and the Italian community.
How do they do what they do?
Flamblers look for fashion accessories like shoes, belts, dresses and more. They wear these items to show that fashion and not sex is what makes them attractive. It has something to do with being feminine, but it is certainly not about showing that one had a sexual or homosexual relationship.
Many are self-styled women. That means that not only is this one way to feel attractive, but it is also one of the ways to feel unique. To flappers, fashion does not define them. When I first saw flappers I was mesmerized by the look in Paris.
Then it got a little odd. I saw many of them walking around the streets of New York in heels, and when I asked if their dresses were ripped they said no. What the heck is it for these people to show their legs for work? Are
