El Imperio De Lo Efimero by Gilles Lipovetsky

The question gillws whether it works in theory. Fashion allows us to pursue differences that in one sense make no difference, despite often serving to mark distinctions, because it lies within the realm of the ephemeral the word Lipovetsky used in his original title, remember.


These three major principles, which were introduced by haute couture, no longer belong exclusively to luxury clothing; they constitute the very core of the consumer industries.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating book, part a history of fashion, part sociological investigation of contemporary mores.

Essentially, Lipovetsky argues that from the 14th century onward fashion has stoked the cult of individuality that defines the contemporary West, that fashion has been a gills for democratization, but also that fashion has contributed the the vacuity of much of our citizenry who have abandoned what Yeats called “monuments of unaging intellect” for topical nonsense. Under the heading of “new french thought” Lipovetsky shares an interesting perspective on the forming of modern democracy.

I am re-reading it in an effort to assimilate some of the new ideas I have learned about dress, body, and culture.

Lipovetski is an atypical philosopher. He created the concept of hypermodernity which succeeds the post modernity. His interests in the mode, transitory, as a mark of individualism and hedonism.

His book is most ambitious because it connects this individualism with the democratic practice. Eloquent writing, making points I’ve thought of myself. Would take less flowery writing if only to have a couple moments of inspiration or insight. Jan 30, Karen K.
