Astro Boy, Sailor Moon, The Simpsons, or Ghibli, is fashion moving into the magical world of cartoons?
Cartoon core the intersection of fashion and cartoon
There are connections that are truly intimate, and when taken together, they create an explosion. The world of cartoons makes dreams come true, no matter how absurd they may be. Fashion has been doing the same thing. See, Cartoon-core is such a trend.
Cartoon-core is a new term in the fashion world, used to talk about a trend in which we have clothes and accessories that use prominent elements from cartoons or a way of life. Dress up like cartoon characters.
Cartoon core is sometimes misunderstood as cosplay (the movement to dress up as famous characters). However, make no mistake! These two concepts are really different. Cartoon core is not just about dressing up like the original, but instead flexibly transforming and exploiting available elements to create an impressive outfit.
Inspiration from animation and anime works may be the main theme, but in the opposite direction, the fashion industry also has a significant influence on these works. This is understandable, because fashion is somehow the breath of life, even if it is the lives of characters created from the imagination.
On the last day of September 2022, Loewe fashion house launched its Spring collection and immediately exploded the media with its creativity in applying visual arts to clothes. Fans are “crazy” with surreal costumes on the catwalk as if witnessing a work taken directly from an animated movie or video game. The true color and structure that Loewe brings to the public can not help but admire, and at the same time once again bring the concept of “Cartoon-core” back to the trend.
Really, Cartoon-core has never been a cult trend in world fashion. But no one can deny the solid foothold with the enduring vitality of this trend.
Maybe in recent times, people have been talking about Cartoon-core more thanks to the parallel development of digital fashion and traditional garments. But to say, Cartoon-core appeared decades ago and has always existed and developed until today. It has been around since the 2000s, along with classic cartoons and anime such as Sailor Moon, Ghibli films and a series of hit Disney movies that we will cover later in the article. This.
There are many reasons that can be given to answer the above question. But above all, we need to note a well-known concept in psychology – duckling syndrome. In a nutshell, this is a psychological state in which people will always feel that what they are exposed to – especially childhood movies or comics is always better and more attractive than when the original version was released. mature audience. According to some unofficial statistics, more than 90% of the world’s population has this syndrome.
Obviously, the cartoons or comics that we were passionate about in childhood have a great influence on our development later. No one can refuse an outfit that makes us think of a character coming out of the imaginary world that we wish we could be in when we were kids, right?
Understanding the psychology of consumers, famous fashion houses certainly cannot ignore this fertile land.
We can mention typical campaigns like Gucci x Disney 2020; Gucci x Doraemon Spring 2021 or Loewe x Ghibli 2021… or special product lines such as Jimmy Choo’s Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon boots and bags…
Just like that, Cartoon-core is constantly creating trends and attracting a lot of attention from fans. Cartoon core occupies an extremely important role in the annals of the modern fashion industry. The world is constantly changing, it is not uncommon for a new trend to be crowned and a fashion style to become outdated. However, Cartoon-core always has its own advantages and is an endless exploitation topic for believers. This is extremely understandable because few styles can harmoniously combine visual, emotional, and unique elements like Cartoon-core.
