‘Gorpcore’ Is The new ‘Normcore’ And It’s Bringing Bum Luggage Again
Bumbags are again.
Gone are the times after they have been the only real preserve of creepy outdated uncles and badly dressed vacationers.
Today, fanny packs are being worn by rappers. By models. And soon, little question, by you.
Why Because gorpcore has introduced them again into style.
However what the hell is ‘gorpcore’
It gets its title from ‘GORP’, an acronym of the ‘Good Old Raisins and Peanuts’ combine used by hikers.
The Cut coined the phrase as a trend time period for dressing such as you spend a load of your time outdoors or camping.
You understand the kind we’re talking about: stone island shadow project harrington individuals who insist on sporting North Face in Islington. Ironic fleeces. BUM Bags.
‘The look isn’t quite the “camping chic” that designers such as Givenchy, Lanvin, and — most notably — Prada despatched down the runway,’ explains The Cut’s Jason Chen.
‘It’s not a few hyper-elevated, excessive-vogue take on hiking clothes. Much of it’s fairly defiantly ugly, like something you’d purchase (or precisely what you’d purchase) at REI earlier than a weekend in Phoenicia — sensible, element-braving fleeces, ponchos, parkas, and windbreakers from no-nonsense manufacturers like Patagonia, the North Face, Teva, Columbia, and Birkenstock worn with painter pants, Vans, Hawaiian shirts, Dickies.
‘Head-to-toe outdoor-wear could be too literal — it must be thrown off to speak the wearer is in on the joke. The outfit isn’t designer, however it is fashion, in the way that any aesthetic executed with intentionality — ever insistent and dissonant — can grow to be “a look.”’
Style icons include A$AP Rocky, who rocked up to Trend Week in a Calvin Klein fleece, puffer and Balenciaga bum bag, and Drake – a former icon of normcore and who loves nothing better than performing in Stone Island windbreakers.
Whereas normcore saw us all dressing like 90s mums in excessive waisted over-washed denims and comfy jumpers, this trend sees us looking for efficiency-enduring style.
You can put on your Stone Island jacket to the pub, to a football match or on a hiking trip.
These manufacturers don’t come low cost however they’re durable. And that’s the message you’re selling.
