If the pair from Nolita madee me want to hibernate until the hipster thing was over because they looked so unattainably cool, these two make me want to do the same, but because they look so completely calculated. She’s straight out of Vice Mag’s Do’s column and he looks what my grandpa would call a ‘hoodlum’. Although, to the girl’s credit, the employees of the Newbury Street American Apparel could learn a thing or two from her.
I lovelovelove that just a teeny bit of her thigh is showing…such a gentle tease of flesh which has not been glimpsed for many months on the streets of the city. Of course, seasonly, it might not be appropriate, but hey! she got our attention!
The fellow on the left, I believe, appears to be a member of Misshapes, so he is more or less central to the hipster phenomenon. He’s wearing Bernhard Willhelm shoes, and I can only imagine that the rest was purchased from Seven New York as well.
My problem with this outfit is knowing who it is, and how much it cost. I have trouble trusting people who never wear the same thing twice, and the Misshapes folks show up in different expensive couture / RTW at every opportunity available to them, and it just doesn’t speak of “style” so much as a desire to be seen and adored. I believe the term is “showing off.”
It doesn’t take much style to go into Opening Ceremony every weekend and buy $1000 of clothes, you’re bound to get something right eventually.
He’s not a member of misshapes but like I said before, goes by the name of V.I.P. and, yes, appears at Misshapes sometimes. I’m not sure how these people afford the range of clothes they wear–Bernard Wilhelm and Jeremy Scott certainly don’t come cheap and these people don’t seem to repeat outfits very often…
