Artists of early 19 century in Paris embraced what became known as the bohemian style. They were known for their different lifestyle, for their disregard of money, for the pursuit of music, color, and relationships. They are a group that have different priorities than the dominant cultures of their societies, a group that inspire both disdain and envy.
The Bohemians are usually in flamboyant, irrelevant moods; their speech is peppered with witticisms.
"Bohemia is a stage in artistic life; it is the preface to the Academy, . . . Today, as of old, every man who enters on an artistic career, without any other means of livelihood than his art itself, will be forced to walk in the paths of Bohemia" Murger
. BOHEMIAN STYLE .
The bohemian style is back, for a time it was an exclusive style for artists and sometimes celebrities...much of the bohemian style you'll see today is 60's and 70's inspired. It doesn't necessarily has to be like that, Bohemian style is unconventional, it represents counter-culture, it is not limited to a decade or century, it is a movement that has been perpetuated, it had its birth on the wombs of the french revolution. It is not dictated by the fashion industry, it is dictated by one's self inspirations and creativity.
