G.O.R.P – Good Old Raisins and Peanuts
Camp Life Edit
Words: Anne-Marie Becker
We have great news for all the outdoor enthusiasts, as Gorpcore remains a major trend this season. This seemingly cryptic term refers to a very specific aesthetic that primarily combines outdoor brands with utilitarian elements and presents them in a contemporary context. The term Gorpcore is derived from the initials G.O.R.P which come from “Good Old Raisins and Peanuts”, the popular trail mix which is particularly popular with hikers and mountaineers.
Gorpcore emerged over the years as a logical consequence of Normcore, a trend that is all about understated practicality. Gorpcore takes this idea a step further and is defined by functionality, utilitarianism and absolute comfort. Here the emphasis is placed on combining innovative fabrics and natural materials that unite functionality with comfort.
As Gorpcore is centred around the functionality of clothing and accessories, the trend lends itself to being compatible with city life as well as outdoor adventures. From high-quality outdoor looks to the right equipment, everything we offer is in the spirit of uncompromising functionality.
