The 80's are making their comeback rather fiercely in our modern societies. We seem to be lacking the imagination of creating a new 21st century style so we go back in time.
Or maybe it is because we think that the 80's were indeed quite cool and we can "revisit" them with a modern 21st century twist to make them even cooler.
The website Look At This Fucking Hipster, aka "latfh" shows pictures of "hipsters", people with a rather interesting fashion sense highly inspired by the 80's - Like this guy:
I took this photo myself when I was in Peru visiting the Machu Picchu. The guy's from Australia and he was the official AHASA (Australian Hipsters' Ambassador in South America). A French friend of mine calls them "les Bobos" which means Bourgeois Bohème - in other words "rich white kids who pretend to be hippies". I told him that at least they elevated the style to a whole new level making it cool and especially clean. Anyway, frenchies just like to complain all the time, they'll start a protest about it soon.
Below is a video making fun of hipsters around the world calling them Dickheads - the clip is full of images that you can find on latfh.com.
Hipsters are also invadind Switzerland. And because it's a rich place, they don't do it lightly. Yesterday, as I was walking around in Geneva, I saw this car. I mean it screams 80's all over the place, right?
The 80's are officially back. Go get yourself a pair empty frames, tight jeans, a colorful sweater and a ridiculous haircut (or a hat). Now, that's an order.
