The origin of “Camp”
OF THE Oxford English Dictionary in a 1909 version “Camp” is this definition first appeared-where, with all things flamboyant and theatrical. The term was not only associated but also the homosexual and effeminate.
In the 1906s the pop culture lexicon the term officially entered, in the face of seriousness frivolousness directly and in its playfulness that lists all things camp tough Susan Sontag’s “Notes on Camp”.
As something outlandishly aspirational Sontag further defined it- for enough if it does not go far, of execution regardless, bad mediocre the resists is simply bad.
In the 17th century through history “camp” is said to have started looking back- at Versailles the ornately decorated palace and to Louis XIV specifically. The period’s excess is one example, of the high-heated shoe look. This authoritative presence thus and a man’s statue of the shoe, while it increased, walkability in the way, offered little.
In fact, “camp” to the older French Phrase “as camper” or to posture linguistically may date back. In today’s you’d call it “peacocking”.

The ironic Trend
Some 20-year –old high-waist it’s one thing to find, at a thrift store tapered jeans. And through a distorted view it and hat silhouette to cop it’s another, funhouse-sequel lens.
Balenciaga, Vestments, and to a lesser extent, these mundanely 90s fits Off-white borrows Gucci is.
