The Flamenco Shawl: Luxury or Necessity?
The shawl first appeared in Seville in the mid-20th century as a luxury garment. Nevertheless, once it was established as yet another element of expression of the Spanish culture. As it quickly became associated with the art of Flamenco it also became indispensable: after all, when the grandeur of dance is “draped” in the aristocratically simple, then dance acquires style, meaning, and direction.
The magic of Flamenco lies in the unbounded creative freedom it offers.
