Gibson girl

19.gs. beigās / 20.gs. sākumā mākslinieks Charles Dana Gibson savos zīmējumos radīja sievieti, zināmu kā Gibson girl, kas ātri vien kļuva par tā laika Amerikas skaistuma “ideālu”. Tāpat kā mūsdienās, arī tad sievietes tiecās “aizņemties” simbolus, kurus piedāvā tā laika ideāls. Viens no Gibsona meitenes simboliem, kas ieguva plašu atsaucību dažādos sociālos slāņos, bija Gibsona blūzīte – kokvilnas auduma blūze, dāsni dekorēta ar ielocēm, savilkumiem, mežģīnēm, izšuvumiem un aplikācijām. Atmetot vēlmi līdzināties da jebkādiem skaistuma un sieviešu ideāliem, šis sievietes tēls arī 21.gs. spēj iedvesmot neglābjamus romantiķus. Starp citu, blūzīte sadraudzējas gandrīz ar visu, kas atrodams mūsdienu garderobē.
At the turn of the 20th century, Charles Dana Gibson created a woman in his drawings known as the Gibson girl, who quickly became an American beauty “ideal”. Then as now, women tended to “ borrow” certain beauty symbols of the time. One of the Gibson girl’s symbols was her blouse. The Gibson blouse was made out of fine cotton and decorated with lace, tucks, trims, gathers, appliqué and other delicate details. Leaving any ideals about women and beauty aside, this image can inspire hopeless romantics in the 21st century as well. By the way, this blouse makes friends with almost anything that can be found in the contemporary closet.
