The phenomenon “normcore” a style beyond style
After the big buzz around the phenomenon “hipster” in the early 2010s, the time has come to welcome the new unisex fashionable trend by the name – almost scientific – of “Normcore.”
More than a revolution, the normcore could be interpreted as the ultimate way to be a hipster, who after reaching the peak of anti-conformist style falls in the non–style. This trend, whose name is a contraction of the words “normal” and “hardcore”, which appeared in Berlin early this year, is a hymn to normality. In short, follow the fashion is no longer on the page, but to be “anti-fashion” the now becomes!
The concept of normcore advocates, indeed, back to basics: the aim being to fall in the standard both in her wardrobe in her life. Exit therefore silhouettes beards cut and polish loafers walking the openings of upscale galleries; the holding of the Supreme normcore is a basic white t-shirt, jeans and a pair of sneakers he or she takes to go shopping on a Sunday afternoon. A style probably already adopted by thousands of people without even knowing it!
Too stylish to be stylish, this trendy – even a little – Democratic done many followers as detractors, but already find fans among celebrities like Katie Holmes, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kristen Stewart. And you, what do you think?
