Gorp (standing for good ol' raisins and peanuts) is in style this summer according to Vogue (opens in new tab). Writer Irene Kim, who can usually be found covering catwalk trends, has been keeping an expert eye on 2022 street style and determined that waterproofs and hiking boots are this month's hottest trend. It had to happen eventually, right?
Of course, we're not quite talking about a standard base layer with a lingering scent of campfire smoke here.
"The [Gorpcore] look relies on fashionable campwear, including oversized nylon cargos, dad sneakers, and designer windbreakers, and Japanese brands like White Mountaineering, Sacai, and Engineered Garments have been refining it since well before all of us started overusing the word," Kim explains.
Gorpcore has been quietly simmering away for several years now (in January 2019, singer Frank Ocean was spotted wearing a bright orange Mammut puffer jacket at a fashion show in Paris), so there's a chance that it might be here to stay for a while yet.
