This article analyses the adoption of male English fashion in France in the 18th-19th centuries, focusing on the term “Dandy”. This word is surely due to England, but it became a concept in French democratic society. The research involves a reading of two significant texts: Treatise on Elegant Living by Honoré de Balzac (1830) and On Dandyism and George Brummell by Barbey d’Aurevilly (1845) .In Chapter 1, I investigate the transformation of the term “Dandy” in the French literature of the period from the French Revolution to the July Monarchy. In this phase, French Dandies depended on the democratization of society. In Chapter 2, my exploration concerns the meaning of male fashion in the 1830’s through Balzac’s text. In Chapter 3, I analyse the “Spirit” of a Dandy through the essay of Barbey d’Aurevilly. The notion of Dandyism is no longer centered on one’s external apprearance; it has become important internally and psychologically.
