Barba, un accesoriu stylish

Barbatul care nu trebuia “sa ceara niciodata” din anii ‘80 nu avea nevoie sa-si arate chipul barbos pentru a-si expune propria virilitate. Era mascul si gata. Confuz in tendinte, metrosexualul, barbatul anului 2014 sufera de nevoia de performanta si de a enumera printre marile sale cuceriri introducerea barbii in prezentarile de moda masculine. Iar printre ei se numara si multe vedete de la Hollywood. Daca modeling-ul masculin a aratat o deschidere in ceea ce priveste barba, cum a reactionat lumea virtuala? Incantatorul raspuns vine de pe blogul “Will it Beard” al cuplului Thiot, care a realizat un proiect ce ilustraza o cale de mijloc dintre arta si tentativele de a face mai pline de viata tabieturile familiare: Pierce, sotul, a lasat sa ii creasca o barba lunga si deasa. Pe care sotia sa Stacy o fotografia punctual, dupa ce o umplea cu obiecte cotidiene, cum ar fi dischete de bumbac, bigudiuri, carioci, creioane si mai nou, flori. Rezultatul final este unul nemaivazut, o adevarata obsesie a momentului. Iubitorii barbilor excentrice au si un concurs anual dedicat lor. Anul acesta are loc in Portland, pe 25 octombrie Cea mai mare adunare a barbosilor din lume va fi in concurs pentru a castiga unul din premiile oferite de Just For Men World Beard and Mustache Championship.


The beard, a stylish accessory

The man who “never has to ask” of the ’80s did not need to show off his face to expose his virility. He was simply a male. Confused between trends, the metrosexual, the man of 2014 suffers need to perform and to include among his greatest achievements introducing beard to the catwalks. And among them we find many Hollywood stars. If male modeling was openned to the idea of having a beard, how did the virtual world react? The charming answer comes from the blog “Will it Beard” created by the Thiote couple, which conducted a project that illustrates a middle ground between art and attempts to make vivid familiar habits: husband Pierce let his beard grow long and thick and wife Stacy photographed it, after filling it with everyday objects, such as cotton rollers, pens, pencils and lately, flowers. The end result is unprecedented, the obsession of the moment. Beard lovers also have an yearly contest dedicated to them. This year, it will takes place in Portland, on October 25th, and it will be largest gathering of beards in the world, compeating to win one of the prizes offered by Just For Men World Beard and Mustache Championship.
