Una nuova tipologia di donna nasce in Cina durante gli anni ’20.

20s Fashion in China – La sfrenatezza della vita occidentale, legata al ritrovato benessere, invade l’Oriente e la sua moda che lentamente è sedotta dall’immagine à la Garçonne. Il pesante cerone, gli ombrellini di carta, i fascianti kimono in seta cedono il passo ad impalpabili abiti  in chiffon, a trucchi meno vistosi, ad acconciature “alla maschietta”.

Anna May Wang

Così si fa strada ad Hollywood la prima tra le attrici cinesi, Anna May Wong, destinata a divenire un’icona di stile per il mondo intero. Di seguito una selezione di immagini che testimoniano questa rivoluzione sociale e vestimentaria in Cina.

A new kind of woman in fashion was born in China during the 20s.

The wildness of Western life, linked to the refounded welfare, invades the Orient and its fashion that was slowly seduced by the style “à la Garçonne”. The heavy make-up, the paper umbrellas, the kimono silk bindings give way to impalpable chiffon dresses, to less conspicuous make-up, to “boyish” hairstyles.

Anna May Wong

And the first of the Chinese actresses, Anna May Wong, was making her way to Hollywood, destined to become a 20s fashion icon from China to the whole world. Below for you a selection of images that testify to this social and clothing Chinese revolution.
