What is gorpcore

Let’s start with the definition. Gorp is its acronym good raisins and peanutsor “good dried raisins and peanuts”: the energy snacks that generally accompany them trips and days surrounded by nature. Consider excursions, camping or camping holidays, hiking. On “adventures” in the mountains. The suffix –core, we now know, identifies new fashion trends. Which, in a way, we could define as a position (or at any rate represents a position).

But let’s avoid possible misunderstandings: all this does not mean being in the city and dressing as if you are in wild landscapes or on top of a mountain. This means, on the contrary, choose looks that are functional and inspired by these types of experiences. Read the clothes again in an urban key, obviously, but which convey a great sense of freedom.
