If you’ve been browsing fashion news on the internet lately, chances are you’ve heard of normcore. This week’s guest is Jeremy Lewis, former trend forecaster and founder/editor of the scholarly new fashion publication Garmento, who contributed his thoughts on the new movement to The Cut’s widely publicized article. On today’s show Jeremy expounds on this sociological trend, sharing his thoughts on anonymity’s place in fashion, normcore’s appeal within our contemporary context, what it means to pursue fashion vs. style, and more.

Plus, a great mix of under-the-radar artists in today’s playlist, including garage/psych/punk ensembles Sleepy Sun and Ex Hex, along with upcoming folk group Twin Forks and UK artist Bipolar Sunshine. So grab your most nondescript pair of grey sweatpants, and join us for a look into fashion’s new blank face…

*For more on normcore, and to see real-world examples, read The Cut‘s article that sparked an internet frenzy. (And if you want even more, just google “normcore” – you will find an unending thread of editorials & opinion pieces dedicated to the trend.)

*A tribute to Charles Kleibacker and his work from the New York Times.

*An article about Andre Walker’s new work, from W Magazine; check out the lookbook for his new 2014 And Re Walker Collection, made exclusively for DSMNY.

For more Garmento, read about the publication, check the list of NY stockists, and keep up with all the latest developments on Facebook!
