Like bright socks have become a passport to the world of fashion and politics

Once wear socks with sandals were considered a sign of bad taste. Now it’s a fashion trend that tight at the heel, no need to hide neither men nor women. “Газета.Ru” tells how socks have become the main focus in the image.

Traditionally, business dress code prescribed to gentlemen pick up socks in the color of the pants, but the rebels, not wishing to accept the customs, is always there — even in 2008, the composer Michael Nyman in concert at the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow shook the audience, among other things, concert red socks under black trousers. Love the bright socks and the famous George H. W. Bush: 41st President of the USA has appeared more than once in public appearances in socks striped with the pattern of the American flag with a picture of Superman, and so on. Even bill Clinton, once coming to Houston to visit the Bush, as a gift brought him a pair of bright socks with funny pictures.

Today: the main trend-setter among politicians is the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.

At business meetings he usually appears in a suit and funny socks with a skull or a maple worksheet.

A couple of months ago, the Prime Minister and all came out in colorful socks: at the meeting with the Prime Minister of Ireland Andoy Kenny on the right foot Trudeau was spotted yellow sock and on the left side blue. Print was the image of characters in the universe of “Star wars” droid R2-D2 and the droid C-3PO. (So strange, at first glance, the act explained by the fact that the meeting of Prime Ministers took place on 4 may — a day traditionally considered “Star wars Day”.).

These are the socks you’re looking for. #MayTheFourthBeWithYou#GuerreDesÉtoiles

We noticed that all around were encouraged by this story, though there are costs, now all my friends decided on the gift and bringing me new socks from all over the world!”. However, the ancestors of the ideas of the representatives of the Russian authorities themselves do not believe, claiming that the bright socks are the norm for gentlemen.
