Welcome to our article about the Boho movement from its origins to today.

Did you say Paris? And yes, before the hippies of the 70’s and the babas cool of the 2000’s, the Boho or the bohemians, were Parisian artists.

These artists, seeking to differentiate themselves from the aristocracy and the working class, found a lifestyle of their own: bohemia

For those who know Charles Aznavour’s song “La Bohème” (click HERE to listen) we are in the middle of the beginnings of this movement which will become multi-generational.

2) The origins of the Boho movement.

To explain a little, what this style represents, we will start by Bohemian artistexplaining where this concept comes from, and the etymology of the word “Boho”.

In fact, the word “Boho” comes from “bohemian” itself derived from the word “bohemian”.

It began to be attributed to a group of artists who were emerging in the 1930s in Paris.

This artistic trend and ideology began to grow stronger at this time. Their need for differentiation was increasingly significant.

The Bohos succeeded not only in creating their own style, but also in creating attitudes, a lifestyle and a way of life that were very much their own.

3) The development of the Boho style.

In the beginning, what differentiated them the most was their way of life. Bohemians were totally opposed to the order established by the middle class and the bourgeoisie.

The money, the fame, was only the means to develop their creativity and earn a living.

Then the bohemian style or Boho style, begins to extend to aspects of fashion, jewelry, accessories and interior design.

Far from losing its strength, this style has been reinvented over the years, giving birth to new concepts such as bohemian chic or hippie chic.

4) Boho chic and hippies.

It is the hippies without question who gave a second life to the Boho movement. The hippie movement, in the middle of the Vietnam war, campaigned for world peace and the end of all wars.

The hippies, also wanted to break the ambient conformism of the 70s and advocated free love, drugs and rock music.

While being inspired by the bohemian style and its anti-conformism side, the hippies as well as some celebrities made that the Boho fashion took over.

It is by standing out from the fashion canons of the time that they created the Bohemian chic style.

Following this trend in need of freedom, they have made the choice of loose-fitting clothes that invite fluidity of movement.

The colors are influenced by nature, the tones are muted and soft, without losing elegance, sophistication, romanticism and femininity.
