Babycore: Please, Oh Please Don’t Tell Us That This is A Real Thing?
We’ve had normcore, but now get ready for babycore.
Normcore: a fashion trend where dressing like a ‘normal’ person, i.e. in average everyday clothes became a high fashion.
Babycore: A grown adult dressing up like a baby…yes, you read that right.
Stumbling across the term ‘Babycore’ the other day was one of those moments where internet browsing just gets…weird.
A recent article in papermag.com featured artist Matt Starr, and his most recent ‘creation’ – Babycore.
Starr, sports a fetching Louis Vuitton inspired ‘nappy’ in the papermag article and is featured on his website wearing adult sized clothing based on 90’s babywear trends like Gymboree.
As an artist who judges the success of his work by its internet ‘virality,’ Starr has certainly hit a jackpot with Babycore, which is being reported worldwide.
So what does the world think about Babycore? The general consensus seems to be…eww. What do you think?
