Pockets is not directly any new invention within the fashionable, but still raises the attention – when they pop up on clothing for women, want to say.
the Reason is of course that they still – after having been in men's fashion in approximately 500 years – is so rare on some types of women's clothing that they cause headlines when they pop up.
And now it is time again. During the latest Oscars were awarded Olivia Colman not only with a statuette for the lead role in The film ”The favourite”, she was also hailed for its emerald green long elegant evening gown – with pockets in the sides.
Sarah Paulson and Gemma Chan was to have chosen dresses with deep pockets. Pictures where they are posing on the red carpet, with his hands stuck in the sides of their sidenblåsor, got many people on social media to write wistfully loaded comments like ”oh, a dress with pockets!!”

Gemma Chan, who wore a fluffy hot pink sidenklänning, answered one of the comments on american tv with the words: ”Yes, it has pockets and they are filled with snacks.”
Pockets is, in short, phenomenally clever, in many ways. Not only are they a smart ”hands free” alternative to the bag in which you can carry stuff/snacks. In them you can also stop down, the nervous hands, and in no time see far much cooler than what you feel.
Stack the hands in the pockets also made one of the 1900-century's most influential fashion designers, Coco Chanel. She looked upon the pockets as a matter of course in their collections.
But it is also in there somewhere it is possible to start to trace the reason to the pockets of girls is lagging. Women have in the past not been considered to need to carry things, such as snacks or cold hard cash. Or appear to be strong and cool. It has been the men's thing. Or which fashion designer Christian Dior said, as late as in the beginning of the 1950s: ”the men's pockets is to have things in women's pockets is for ornament”.
of course, has not prevented women from over the years, get clothes with pockets, in different ways. When in the mid-1800s began to be possible to be able to sew dresses for yourself, thanks to the sewing machines and the new cheap pappersmönstren which were then to buy, there was also a pattern with the pockets to acquire.
After the first world war, when a lot of women had to take over men's jobs during the war, many also appreciate the fact their clothing, and the freedom they gave. As trousers with pockets. Soon thereafter began the movie stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn wearing pants, and the pose with the hands in the pockets in the picture.actress Sarah Paulson, left, in a dress with deep pockets.

Stack the hands in the pockets also made one of the 1900-century's most influential fashion designers, Coco Chanel. She looked upon the pockets as a matter of course in their collections, and the synthesis itself frequently in the picture with a cigarette in the corner of the mouth, and a hand casually nedstucken in its kjolficka.
women has persevered with pockets is amazing, has pockets and that works just pockets – to slip your hand or stuff in – still generally considered to destroy the streamlined silhouette that has long dominated the worn by women at large. And makes it than.
Many of today's pockets are, therefore, small and narrow, if they exist at all. Not rarely are they just in the form of stitching that is reminiscent of the pockets, a sort of fejkfickor.
For even if much else has gone forward so it is still sleek and slender silhouette in form, still the norm in the fashion industry.
But there is hope for change.
Hedi Slimane last year, took over the management of the hajpade French brand Celine for the influential designer, Phoebe Philo, was the many frosted set and asked himself how he would be able to renew a fashion brand so strongly associated with her female aesthetics, based in the function.
the Answer, he for a couple of weeks ago, gave the collection for autumn/winter 2019 was pockets. All 56 of the 59 models that went out on the catwalk made it with firm steps, and with their hands deeply stuck in the garment with spacious pockets.
