temple of rai
In August, he too went on a trip. For three days, from August 27 to 30, Emmanuel Macron was in Algiers and Oran to reaffirm the ties of friendship between France and Algeria and to engage in an ever more benevolent partnership.
Incidentally, he took the opportunity to hang out at Disco Maghreb, a shop and a rai label from Oran, a must in the 1980s, and recently resuscitated by the grace of DJ Snake and his planetary hit of the same name.
That day, in the shop run by the mythical Boualem Benhaoua, the Head of State was able to discover treasures and marvel at the old-fashioned charm of his audio cassettes.
Maybe Emmanuel Macron even remembered having, at the time, rewound his own cassettes with a Bick pen, as those who did not have an auto reverse system on their Walkman did, or having made compilations for Brigitte, as the chilled lovers did. Who knows ?
At Disco Maghreb, while he dipped into his memories, Emmanuel Macron incidentally offered an ideal point of view on his right temple and on the leg running along it. The opportunity for a brief, but important, lexical point. This type of paw is often, wrongly, equated with sideburns, which designate a tuft of hair, and not hair, running along the temple. If you are looking for an alternative to the word « paw », then choose « favorite ».
Facing the president, Boualem Benhaoua wore a flowered shirt of the most beautiful effect, thus perpetuating the great legend of the « Liberty » fabric. This one was created in the 1920s by the English draper Arthur Liberty, eager to renew his palette of fabrics and impose a unique style on a lasting basis. It is an understatement to say that these delicate fabrics, close to silk and revealing, on both sides, a subtle floral pattern, composed of 12 to 18 colors, succeeded.
Since we are talking about rags and prints, how can we not note the polka dots adorning the blouse of the current Minister of Culture, Rima Abdul-Malak ? To designate these patterns, English speakers use the term « polka dots », simply because they recall the dresses – with polka dots – traditionally worn by polka dancers… That too is culture. Isn’t it, Jack Lang?
