In the 1950s, women from all over the country wore practical button-down dresses with tight waists and thick pockets. In the 1980s, the shoulder pad was a symbol of workplace power and a symbol of the supermarket’s aisle. In the wind, mothers (and their daughters) wore a lot of Juicy Couture velvet sportswear.
For many years, black Lululemon yoga pants and Uggs have been the axis of the mother’s uniform until the media brutally humiliated women. Then last year, in the Chappaqua and Short Hills moms, they saw a pair of deliberately beaten $500 cheap golden goose sneakers, as well as the so-called “Amazon Jacket”, a $130 snow coat.
However, recently in Brooklyn, middle-aged fashion has seen a much more bohemian expression.
The orchestra consists of two accessories: Part 1 is the No. 6 wooden log, in the upscale Brooklyn and Keri Russell, Julianne Moore and Claire Danes. Among celebrities, everywhere.
Part 2 is the Salt Belt. The Salt Belt is a thick, detachable hand strap that is woven from bright colors and can be hung on a luxury bag. Salt’s Instagram account vividly promotes it, such as $2,500 for Gucci. $3,300 for Hermès, $2,600 for Celine or $1,700 for Chloé.
Zora Ginsburg is the mother of two children of Rebecca Taylor, a sales expert in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. She wears a number 6 wood c. Eight years of history. She owns them in a variety of colors – wool skins, slides, zipper boots – never deviating from the brand. When she was not wearing the 6th log, she wore Isabel Marant bootees and Dr. Martens.
Ms. Ginsburg introduced the belt by Kancy Lubell, owner of her friend Salt, and rotated several belts between Balenciaga, Fendi and the Proenza Schouler PS1 tote. (Ms. Ginsburg helped make the photo taken by Salt. In return, she got a belt; the rest was paid for by her.)
Ms. Kingsburg was happy to see the bandages take off around Brooklyn and did not think that a group of similar mothers were obstructing her appearance.
She said: “It’s like we are matching.” She said that the strap reminded her of the friendship bracelet she wore in the camp. “This is a unique style. When I saw someone without a belt or wooden log, I thought, “That looks good. I want that. ‘”
So matched, this is not intentional. Ms. Luber wrote in an e-mail: “We see salt belts more as a way to make your bags unique.” “Customers sent us so many bags and belt combinations, it seems everyone The way they dress is different.” (Ms. Luber said that she “lives” in her 6th log and belt.)
But sometimes it seems that choosing to wear the same clothes with people around us is far less demanding of our material desires than our evolutionary requirements as human beings.
It makes sense to attract women from the same region to similar styles. Our prehistoric history of evolution shows that we need many people to help us raise our offspring, so we are surrounded by people with similar values or looks like us.
Social researcher Martin said on Wednesday that we can still see similar echoes today. Her latest book is Untrue, a study of female infidelity.
Ms. Martin has four pairs of No. 6 wooden logs; she lives in two apartments in Manhattan and two in the house in Sag Harbor. She has no belt but is familiar with the belt.
Ms. Martin will dress up like a woman of her age and the chimpanzee. No chimpanzee is a female-dominant species that leaves its relatives behind and gathers together to form new communities to resist male aggression.
She said: “Especially when you consider how weird, lonely and dying we have in our culture, you will understand the importance of the mother doing this.” “Through a very clever social strategy, we as a kind of Species survived by connecting with others and making others feel like relatives.”
As the man in a gray flannel suit shows, either a pink lady wearing a pink coat embroidered with “fat” or a London Teddy girl wearing a overalls and a blazer, or, to be sure, Mother jeans wearing the same clothes will signal: on the one hand, it links you to the person you want to be like, on the other hand, it separates you from people who don’t want to be like them.
Valerie Steele, curator and chief curator of the Museum of Fashion Technology, said that the concept of fashion with these contradictions was first proposed by sociologist Georg Simmel in the early 20th century. She said: “It’s like a double-edged knife.” “It makes you part of a group and makes you an individual away from another group.”
She said: “So, women in the 1950s always felt ‘oh, horror’ when they attended the party,” “but I think this ignores the fact that women want to wear other women among them in many other ways.” Very similar clothes.”
SaSaDi Odunsi, 42, is the mother of Park Slope, the mother of four children, and the co-owner of a collective of beads. He has two pairs of No. 6 wood wells and blue and white “Duke” Salt straps, currently hanging on the Oliveve snake-studded leather bag.
She bought the belt because her child went to school with Ms. Lubell’s child, and she wanted to support the “mother-owned business”. Recently, she saw many women wearing a belt/wood log combination in the town and got kicked out.
Odunsi said: “There is no doubt that there are quite a few parents here, which will help determine if people are buying something.” “Because we all know that these things cost money. Sometimes, when the trend becomes abnormal When I was expensive, I looked around and thought, “Oh, there are many people who can afford a lot of these things. “She lives in Park Slope after all, and the average house there costs about $1.2 million.”
Aside from the information of Mother Earth, the price of a pair of 6-wood logs may be as high as $450, while the price of the strap is $140, with 99% of women who can’t afford it.
However, due to the straightforward appearance of its Laurel-Canyon, it was about 1969 and combined with charity (based on its website, Salt established a partnership with artisans from the La Guajira region of Colombia and donated some psychologists and consulting firms). Carolyn Mair, founder of Psychology.fashion, said that the belt entered the WayúuTayá Foundation, a non-profit organization in Colombia. To some extent, the belt can “can offset or at least reduce the luxury of the bag.”
Ms. Meyer said: “I think, at least in some respects, it is unacceptable to ignore the world’s problems at all.” “So maybe by wearing a belt, these women hope to be recognized as other places by supporting social undertakings.” The problem.”
The same is true for the wood log, which in many respects cannot be compared to the current working class (the wood log appears in the workplace for chefs, nurses, farmers and gardeners) and the past. (They originated from dairy farmers in the Netherlands and later became ordinary work shoes in Europe during the Industrial Revolution.)
I don’t know if they are beautiful or exquisite, even fashionable. On the often cited c, Lauren Mechling is the founder of the Instagram account Clog Life (who wrote for The New York Times), and her husband used to They are compared to the “extra large eggplant”.
Especially for moms, the 6th wood log sends out that you are very interested in comfort and not very interested in appearance. Man Recore, the fashion editor of Man Repeller, described it as “Mencore”, which is a sneak peek at normcore, mainly celebrated on Instagram by women in their 20s who haven’t even started menopause.
This new uniform is probably just the right time. For example, the Salt strap is benefiting from the downturn in the handbag industry.
“Currently, the handbag industry lacks the ‘It’ shape and the ‘It’ brand,” said Debbie Forman-Pavan, a luxury and modern accessories consultant. She said that with this belt, ladies can give their $4,000 Hermès bag or $500 Michael Kors bag for a small refurbishment for just $140.
If only one actual cosmetic cost is so little, ladies, right?
