Are Hipsters Turning Into Prepsters?
This is the leaked cover for the sophomore album from Vampire Weekend. The record is set to be released to the peeps in January, but the image is already shaking things up. Is this Ralph Lauren casual polo look going to come back? Are we going from skinny panted punks into pleated khakis? And is that a popped collar? So rock ‘n’ roll, dudes. But alas, the VW are trendy tastemakers. Will their cover chick create the next It Girl style? The other trends from the ’80s have come back — all that’s left is the yuppie. But still, this top, like the title, is totes contra. Are y’all ready for the prepster? [Pitchfork]
