“Shut up mom, I’m trying to get this mix right for my next DJ gig at Les Deux. Have you heard that band Odd Future? I saw them down at SXSW and they totally killed it. Trevor says he’s going to have me model in his fall lookbook — it’s got a very French New Wave/Truffaut vibe. Mom! Mom! Mommmmmmm! Where’s my binky?” Meet Marcel, child model in this month’s Vogue Enfants. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe Yelp should make a “used to be hipster” option. I went to Yelp and looked up all of my favorite restaurants. I was delighted to discover that I’ve been dining “hipster” and didn’t even know it. How ironic of me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
The moment the Sartorialist posted a picture of a homeless man looking chic on his blog, we had to realize this day was inevitable. And now it is here, ushered in by Hipster is the New Homeless, a website dedicated to “those who continue to blur the line between hipsters and homeless people.” Politically incorrect and mildly icky though it may be, can we really blame the creators for seizing hold of the whole homeless people as fashion influencers thing when it’s all around us? Erin Wasson, the queen of the fashionably filthy in Brooklyn, even called them the inspiration for her RVCA line. So put aside the righteous anger, check out the site, and laugh your ass off at people who probably spend $250 on rumpled plaid shirts so as to look like they’ve been dumpster-diving at the Salvation Army.

Brooklyn hipsters need more positive encouragement like I need a hole in the head. But I’m still thrilled my girl Ellen Page is writing a comedy for HBO about mankind’s most poser-ific social group. The “Juno” star, along with Alia Shawkat from “Arrested Development” and Sean Tillmann (aka musician Har Mar Superstar), will write and produce Stich N’ Bitch, a show about two hipster girls who move from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Silver Lake, Los Angeles in a passionate quest to be artistes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, any of the three actors might star in the show but no roles have been cast yet. Oh, pretty please, Ellen? I can’t imagine anyone else I want to watch suffer for their art.
By the way, for those of you who aren’t in the know, Stitch N’ Bitch is a series of knitting how-to books written by Debbie Stoller, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Bust, one of our favorite mags. Great name, ladies! [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »
We’ve kept silent while Dov Charney has screwed around with fashion.
We put up with the pervy advertisements.
We put up with Charney masturbating in front of a Jane reporter.
We put up with his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits.
We put up with messing with our main mensch, Woody Allen.
But we’re not going to take it anymore—the scrunchies must be stopped. Keep reading »
