FASHION FRIDAY! SEAPUNK
TRENDS WE LOVE!
"Seapunk is a microculture with an identifiable style of music, design, and fashion. It developed online in 2011 via a small group of social media enthusiasts who shared a nostalgia for 1990s internet culture." Seapunkers are identifiable by their use of imagery from the 1990s cyberpunk culture, including dolphins, pyramids, bright colors, glitter, yin yangs, beach scenery and dreamscapes. Seapunk artists also incorporate ocean sounds and electronic beats in their music."The New York Times described Seapunk as a "web-joke with music." It gained limited popularity as it was shared, forwarded, and linked across the internet."
"The fashion sees a large amount of colors of blues and greens as reminiscent of aqua related themes. Symbols such as yin-yangs, smiley faces and references to the 1990s are also a part of the style."
The word "seapunk" was coined by @Lilinternet Brooklyn-based DJ Julian Foxworth when he "had a surreal dream of a punk rock styled leather jacket which had studs that were barnacles sometime in 2011. He woke up and hashtagged the word #seapunk. From there – it caught on, went viral and birthed this whole subculture of music, fashion and art styles".
