Who said it was the crisis on the right? On June 17, at the Cirque d’hiver in the 11ᵉ arrondist in Paris, the Republican pundits have forgotten the dissensions, the polls at half mast, the absence of Laurent Wauquiez, president of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, the legal setbacks of ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy and the crisis of legitimacy of Eric Ciotti, at the head of the party, for focus on what works. Not much ? Annie Genevard, Secretary General, Rachida Dati, Mayor of 7e arrondist of Paris, Eric Ciotti and Gérard Larcher, President of the Senate, ended up laughing.
For the occasion, but as always, Rachida Dati had taken care of appearances. Thus, on her white blouse with perfectly starched turn-up cuffs, shone a long necklace ending in a tel. Longer than a uniform or choker necklace (35-41 cm), a princess necklace (43-46 cm) or a matinee necklace (51-61 cm), this piece was of sufficient size (70 cm visibly) to deserve the name jumper or opera (71-92 cm). Good for the show.
By his side, Eric Ciotti, a man of taste and punctuality, also sported a spectacular piece. On her wrist hung her usual Rolex Datejust in gold and steel, allowing us to recall that this combination of two apparently opposed metals is one of the great signatures of the house with the crown, in which it bears, since 1933, the name. Rolesor. By the way, let’s also take this opportunity to note that Eric Ciotti’s Rolex is equipped with a famous brand bracelet, the Jubilee model. Ideal for celebrating, obviously.
At his side, the open jacket of Gérard Larcher, and his position, somewhat slumped, not to say sprawled, allowed us to admire the size of his pants and make the boss of the Senate an improbable model of style. Thus, at the sight of low-waisted monstrosities, let us remember that trousers, a fortiori suits, should always fall to the natural waist of the wearer, generally close to their navel, for additional elegance, but also comfort. Let’s be clear: any negotiation with this principle is a mistake.
Since we are entangled in size problems, let’s finally note the presence in the second row of a man with an unbuttoned shirt collar and a slightly untied tie knot. This extremely widespread gimmick illustrates a basic problem. Men nowadays tend to choose shirts that are way too small, forgetting that poplin tightens slightly over washes. After wearing them a few times, they find themselves unable to button their shirts all the way up and adjust their collars correctly… In short, it’s indeed a circus.
