Marco de Rivera reports on Jean Claude Bologne


"Coquetterie: Said most often women, "write the dictionaries. Surprising paradox, because the coquetry etymologically refers to the cry of the rooster, male par excellence, with bright colors. The word appears in the fifteenth century, but the practice is much older. The author defines it as the search for singularity by artifice and appearance. And in this area, men were not left out: cute, Marjolet, lilies, dandies, hep cats, punks often have over the centuries had nothing to envy women actually attire, hairstyles, perfumes, cosmetics and jewelry, but at the risk of appearing effeminate. For coquetry is also socially, an agent of gender differentiation and individually, an attitude towards life and oneself. This is demonstrated brilliantly revealing Jean Claude Bologne, throughout history, the two sides of male vanity, a fascinating side, repelling each other.
