Clothing has always served as a vehicle of communication. What we wear is invariable, albeit unconsciously, an extension of who we are. Of our personality. The message we want to convey to the world. In addition to this fact, it is also true that all the pieces we use carry a story. However, some more than others. The hoodie, which we are so used to seeing in the most diverse circumstances, is one of the items with one of the most impetuous voices in the history of clothing. And one of the most controversial, too.
With a design that has changed little or nothing in the space of a century, the piece has been adopted, generation after generation, assuming, in most cases, an outsider posture by those who wear it, and integrating, almost always, the counterculture movements that , over time, have been distinguished. Someone who chooses to wear a hoodie immediately feels its effects. Putting a hood over the head carries with it a sense of protection, an impression of wanting to go unnoticed. At the same time, it warms up and, in a way, still screams to the world “I don’t even want to know” which is like saying “I don’t give a shit” — if you’ve never felt it, try this piece. From hip hop to punk, passing through the culture of skateboarding and urban gangs, he dressed the most varied bands, having been a symbol of art, music and, above all, of rebellion. At the same time, it also became an obstinate code of urban decay, even being banned from schools, in England, and even from certain public places. As with everything that is controversial, from an early age the life of this item of clothing is written by tumblers — like a rock star whose decadence manages to be, at the same time, the height of cool.
At a time when the confinement still had no end in sight, nothing better than choosing easy and comfortable clothes to be at home. So, on those days when you don’t have video calls with colleagues and bosses, hoodie looks can really be your best friend.
