The Spring Edit: 7 Gorpcore Essentials For The Happy Camper
Named for the typical trail-mix combo of "good ol’ raisins and peanuts" Gorpcore has come to be defined as fashion's latest obsession with utilitarian, outdoorsy staples transformed by luxury brands. From Birkenstock collaborations to Gucci x The North Face, here are the designer duds you can wear to tackle your next trail.
1/7 Gucci x The North Face Tent
Camp in style in this Gucci nylon tent, made in collaboration with The North Face. The two brand behemoths came together this season to combine their shared passion for the spirit of exploration and adventure to make a line of ready to wear, soft accessories, luggage and shoes.
2/7 Birkenstock x Too Good
Toogood x Birkenstock’s The Forage slides come in three hues including black and white but we are partial to this cheerful yellow inspired by flower pollen. The comfy sandals are made from supple leather with double velcro straps in Birkenstock's classic Arizona sandals fashion.
3/7 Prada Hooded Coat
One of the chicest raincoats you'll ever own, this Prada Re-Nylon jacket is also at least 50 percent sustainable which means it is made from organic, recycled or upcycled materials.
4/7 Balenciaga Trainer
Granted you may not want to actually get these dirty but you'll still want these Balenciaga Triple S logo-embroidered leather, nubuck and mesh sneakers to pound the pavement in this spring.
5/7 JW Anderson Backpack
Leave it to JW Anderson to design a utilitarian backpack in khaki-green and sturdy canvas with adjustable straps that can be equally functional in the forest and the office.
6/7 Loewe Bucket Hat
Not all bucket hats are created equal and Loewe's all-leather topper is definitely top of the bunch, thanks to the Spanish brand's 170 years experience in crafting leather goods.
7/7 Fendi Water Bottle
Fendi’s water bottle made with stainless steel and comes with a chic monogram cosy is designed in collaboration with sustainable drinkware company 24 Bottles was created as a means to encourage its fans to reduce the amount of single-use plastic.
