What is Bo-Bo? Bobo? or bobo?

What is Bo-Bo?

The word bobo, or Bo-Bo, originates from the English language and is an abbreviation of “bourgeois bohemian”, which is a very common expression in France, and especially in Paris.

Bobo, or Bo-Bo, refers to an individual who: lives in an urban area, is considered to be cultivated, enjoys shopping, and is also something of a non-conformist. The Bo-Bo person is someone who is regarded to be a chic and trend-conscious person, and at the same time maintains a relaxed approach to life. Environmental protection and ecological lifestyle is also closely linked to a Bo-Bo person.

To be Bo-Bo also means to find and acknowledge young emerging artists and creators before everybody else does it, and before they become too famous and too commercial for the Bo-Bo people. Also, to be Bo-Bo is to create your own personal style by not having the same thing or the same taste as everyone else.

Of course, this definition of a Bo-Bo should be taken with a sense of humor!
