HEROIN CHIC IS BACK?

Se conoce como «heroin chic» a una de las tendencias que se originó y popularizó en los años 90. Esta estética, que bebe del grunge, tuvo impacto no solo en el mundo de la moda, también en la música, el cine y la literatura. Tiene como principales referentes a Kate Moss, Davide Sorrenti, Jaime King, The Basketball Diaries o Christiane F.

The term “heroin chic” refers to one of the trends originated and popularized in the 90s. This aesthetic, which draws from grunge, had an impact not only in the fashion industry, but in music, cinema and literature. Its main references are Kate Moss, Davide Sorrenti, Jaime King, The Basketball Diaries or Christiane F.

La perfección estética de las décadas anteriores ya no representaba a la sociedad del momento. El consumo de drogas marcó a la generación X y los ámbitos culturales y artísticos se contagiaron de esta realidad. Lo que se buscaba no era hacer apología de los estupefacientes, sino retratar de la forma más cruda posible el sentir de la sociedad de esa época.

The perfection standards of previous decades no longer represented the society of the moment. Drug use marked Generation X and cultural and artistic spheres were infected with this reality. The purpose wasn’t encourage the narcotics addiction, but to portray, in the crudest way possible, the feelings of the society of that time.

Así, el look «heroin chic», como no podía ser de otra forma, se caracteriza por la imperfección, las posturas desgarbadas, los cuerpos macilentos, las ojeras, el pelo suelto y desaliñado o las prendas sencillas.

Thus, the “heroin chic” look is characterized by imperfection, ungainly postures, haggard bodies, dark circles, loose and disheveled hair or simple clothes.

HEROIN CHIC MOODBOARD

Está claro que, a partir de los 2000, con la concienciación sobre el consumo de drogas y la irrupción de otros estándares de belleza, esta tendencia quedó relegada, convirtiéndose en uno de los pasajes más oscuros y controvertidos de la moda.

It is clear that, from the 2000s, with the awareness of drug use and the emergence of other beauty standards, this trend was relegated, becoming one of the darkest and most controversial passages in fashion.

No obstante, ya sabemos que las modas están siempre latentes, esperando el momento idóneo para resurgir con fuerza. En este sentido, los años 90 han tenido un fuerte revival de un tiempo a esta parte, por lo que, parece lógico pensar que este look puede volver a la actualidad. Prueba de ello es que, últimamente, han proliferado, en redes sociales como TikTok, ciertas rutinas de maquillaje y trucos que buscan acentuar las ojeras. Lo cual puede ser indicativo de esa vuelta hacia la estética demacrada, propia del heroin chic.

However, we already know that fads are always latent, waiting for the perfect moment to make a strong comeback. In this sense, the 90s are really fashionable, so it seems logical to think that this look can return nowadays. This phenomenon is evidenced by makeup routines and tips to accentuate dark circles that we can see on social networks, such as TikTok. Which may be indicative of the taste for haggard aesthetics, typical from heroin chic.
