NORMCORE FASHION TREND TODAY: FOR THOSE, WHO WANT TO MAKE THEIR LIFE SIMPLER

02-AUG-2018




So, let’s speak about Normcore style and what it actually is.

Normcore is a style that creates a unique and avant-garde combination of the common unisex clothes’ elements.
This fashion line was introduced in New-York, the USA, in the early 1990s. Then, people still paid attention to the type of clothes one was wearing, as the saying runs “fine dress helped to impress”, and took an extremely thorough approach to choosing their outfit and creating their appearance. The common decencies implied wearing neat and expensive suits, tailor-made clothes made of expensive fabric and boutique high-quality garments.

The protest against generally accepted appearance rules of that time, which today we consider to be extremely silly and antidemocratic, could be expressed via clothes. During that time, normcore was an “antistyle”, a kind of an avant-garde self-expression and freedom from all the styles. It was a more moderate alternative to such extreme outfits as punk and hippy. It almost turned into a philosophic trend with the key idea to stand out without standing out, to wear simple clothes and combine them in avant-garde style, to pay no attention to opinion of the fools who respect only those wearing expensive clothes.

Nowadays, normcore and its various branches have had a triumphal parade across the USA and European countries. The normcore idea has defeated the outdated prejudice.

For example, when my mother came to visit me in Italy, she brought a trunk full of pretentious clothes in case “we would dine out”. Before that, I spent long hours talking her out of the idea, saying that a shirt, a cardigan or a hoody with jeans and a pair of sneakers will be enough. She paid no attention to my advice. As the result, she never got her refined clothes out of the trunk. And every day she used common clothes even for dining out in a restaurant: all she needed were ripped styled jeans and a pair of sneakers. Not normcore as such, but close to it. And that’s all because in modern small Italian towns, you will look like a rare bird wearing haute couture garments. People have started to live simpler. They no more pay attention to unnecessary conventionalities. Even the Italian Minister and Vice-Prime Minister Matteo Salvini prefers to wear plain clothes and very reluctantly switches to a business suit and only in cases when he meets other foreign politicians (as required by the etiquette) or when he attends Parliament sessions.
