Who said that only rich people can talk about taste?

Not long ago, the Korean film "Parasite" won the 92nd Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Film, which caused quite a stir. After all, the topic of this movie is slightly sensitive-discussing class differences, so it has caused various controversies from the moment it was released.

When director Feng Junhao was asked "Why do Americans like "Parasite" so much?", his answer was "This movie is about the rich and the poor. The core is about capitalism, while the United States is capitalist." Center.”
And around this difference between the capitalist classes, the film contrasts the rich and the poor in terms of house decoration, clothing, lifestyle, and so on.

For fashion editors, dressing is our biggest concern. For example, if you look closely, you will find that the hostess's clothes are mostly light-colored, mainly white, beige, champagne, or low-key earth tones, and the material is also noble but fragile such as silk. Fabric. Most of the clothes of the host are tailor-made suits.


These clothes are easy to get dirty and damaged if you are not careful, which means that they are extremely expensive to wear. But because of this, it can reflect the economic strength behind the rich class in the movie.


The poor people in the movie would never wear this way. Worn and loose T-shirts are the norm, and they even rub other people's Wi-Fi on the toilet.WeChat Picture_20200222203013.jpg

Of course, with the development of the plot, when the poor family wants to integrate into the rich circle in the later period, the clothes are also approaching the above principles.
The mansions of the rich are transparent floor-to-ceiling windows and well-ordered open kitchens.


Poor people live in a pile of stinking semi-basements, and there are still rubbish everywhere.


Although this is a slightly exaggerated way of expression by the film director Bong Joon-ho, I also think of another thing: every time we talk about a topic related to taste, there will always be readers who leave a message like this: "You Many of the elegant and exquisite life that I wrote were piled up with money, so ordinary people like us would just look at it."


In many people's minds, taste is linked to money. It seems that we must have enough money before we can live a tasteful life. Is it really like this?
It just so happened that a German writer wrote a book called "Poor and Tasteful" and proposed the life concept of "New Poor Fashionism". At the beginning of the article, he first asked a thought-provoking question: Does a tasteful life really need so much money?

Let me start with the author. The author of this book is certainly not an ordinary German. His name is Alexander von Schoenberg, the orthodox heir of a German earl, and his wife is the niece of Emperor Elizabeth.


Of course, today's nobles are no longer the same as those hundreds of thousands of years ago. The author laughs at himself as a downright noble, lives in an ordinary house, lives by writing, and does not have much money in his pocket.
But he has his own understanding of taste. For example, he said: "Even when a family still does not forget to make the most authentic afternoon tea in a small suite, they still feel that it is a noble movement when they are reduced to a street sweep in Paris, and they must maintain their dignity and taste in the face of lack. "

In the book, he also cited a few behaviors that he thought might be rich but not tasteful. For example, "clothing wears people, not people wear clothes."
Too much attention to clothing can only be regarded as the slavery of clothes in his opinion. Regardless of whether you pretend you don't care or dress up carefully, it is difficult for any kind of deliberate intention to exude an elegant temperament.
True elegance must be without the slightest reluctance. In fact, relying on one's own aesthetic self-cultivation, it is not unreasonable to go to the second-hand market to buy a few quality clothes. Careful care is enough, and it does not cost a lot of money.

The same is true for travel. Some people babble endlessly to show off their experiences in various resorts. It seems to show others that I have visited, which is more important than the visit itself. Instead, it is better to prepare a few dishes carefully at home, open a bottle of wine, and entertain the wealth of friends.
"Pisa people don't want to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Parisians have no interest in climbing the Eiffel Tower." Any deliberate display is actually due to lack of heart, which can only be supplemented by some kind of external proof.
Those behaviors that are truly tasteful actually exist in elegant conversation and behavior.

Taste creates money rather than money creates taste.
In fact, there have been too many examples that prove that there is no connection between wealth and taste.
Gabrielle Chanel, one of the most talented designers in the fashion industry, started as a hat shop, but she dared to be the first to wear pants in an era when women could only wear skirts.
Her good taste comes from her abundant inner world, not from the outside world's evaluation of her.

The designer Jacquemus, who was once a big hit, was also a rural family in Southern France. He was so poor that he didn't dare to sew two more pockets for his clothes, just to save some fabric costs.

He finally stood out from a crowd of designers, precisely because he insisted on his design philosophy from beginning to end. Not only did he not be influenced by the outside world, but he also dared to influence the outside world, taking his design to the door of fashion week to promote himself, step by step until now.
The rich inner world has formed their unique taste. And taste, in turn, helped them create wealth.
In the era of Gabrielle Chanel, it may take a lot of coincidences to realize the supply position. Today, on the Internet, you will find that thousands of people have made money using their taste.

The thinking mode of the upper class
actually, the "good taste" mentioned by the author of "Poor and Tasteful" has similarities with the thinking mode of the upper class.
The most classic example is the late Fiat Group Chairman Gianni Agnelli. As an old money, he is a group business giant that owns Ferrari, Maserati and other supercars.
But his daily life is all kinds of casual wear. The tie was pulled crooked and worn, the watch was worn outside the armholes, and the suit was paired with loafers... These collocations were first made by him, and later became a symbol of the taste of Italian men.


Another example is the Trump family and the Kennedy family. These well-known old money in American history have always been basic clothes in private, and comfort is the most important thing.

Sociologist Paul Fossell wrote in his book "Style" a very similar view to "Poor and Tasteful": "The painstaking effort to achieve meticulous cleanliness is worrying about whether one's social status will decline. Reflecting, or being overly concerned about others’ evaluations and opinions...Tie a very standard tie, over-worrying about clothes sent for dry cleaning, these will easily reveal that you are a person who lacks confidence."


In other words, because people who are truly wealthy never lack money, they don't have any desire for material things or expressing wealth. They are more interested in exploring the inner spirit, making friends, or exploring the wider world.

The areas where these people are frequently active are seldom in the financial sector, but more in the arts or politics. The common feature of these two industries is to burn money, but they are very capable of satisfying people's inner spiritual needs and changing the world.
The old money class actually once had a more appropriate term called "the leisure class". The most important feature of the rich is not grandeur or high-level food and clothing, but a lot of time.
They use this time to race horses, hold various dance parties, appreciate artworks, watch operas, talk and read books. The development of many artworks in European history is inseparable from the preferences of the rich.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory is a well-known social science theory. It believes that people’s basic needs can be divided into five levels: physiological, safety, social, respect and self-realization needs.
In fact, the upper-class thinking model is purely a pursuit of self-realization after satisfying the other four basic needs. And this kind of pursuit, in fact, formed their way of life, and has nothing to do with money itself.

Gabrielle Chanel's former opponent, Schiaparelli once said: "The real luxury is not in the amount of money or the size of the pomp, but in whether you have the ability to get rid of vulgarity."

So, what is taste? For people in the rich side, taste can be squandered, but they choose to use money to devote themselves to charity, promote social justice, and women's progress. Just like some celebrities and wealthy people in the epidemic, they donated money and materials, collected materials by their personal connections, not for personal gain, but just to make the world a better place.
For more people, taste means pursuing your career firmly, always having curiosity about the world, and living your every moment with your heart.
At the end of the book "Poor and Tasteful", the author wrote: "What we really need to learn is to know how to feel our abundance, how to cherish what we have, and be grateful. It is because we have these things, we So we don’t have to feel sorry for what we don’t have, and we don’t feel poor because of it.” You
must know that inner abundance is the most tasteful symbol.
