The Timely Demise of the Hipster by Daniel Pinchbeck

I just read this article in the August 2011 issue of Dazed and Confused written by author and Dazed "resident shaman" Daniel Pinchbeck. I must say it's an inspiring yet delightful article calling for the death of the hipster, who he describes as an "icon of postmodern cool[...] disaffected, stylish cynical, in flight of responsibility".

The article does remind me of the "death of the hipster" piece in Adbusters that was out a few years back, without the blatant pessimism. I prefer Pinchbeck's piece for its more pro-intellect and pro-passion than anti-establishment or armchair-cynic stance. In fact, I couldn't help but shout, YES, YES, YES! to myself as I was reading the article.

What I'm Into Now

Items I'm currently really digging.

Only while editing these photos on Photoshop did I make the very uncanny discovery that the candle tins match the magazine covers in colour! Juno Temple is peony lemon, Bjork is ginger lemongrass and Beyonce is pomegranate crush. Wicked weird!

Five outfits worn in the last month

EDITED Oct 16, 2011

I started using Polyvore recently and thought it'd be fun to make digital versions of my outfits from the last month. I often tweet pictures of my outfit for the day, and just had to look back to past tweets for inspiration.

Prada FW2011

Edited Oct 20, 2011

Prada Real Fantasies Fall/Winter 2011/2012 from Jonathan Coronado García on Vimeo.

I've been head over heels for Prada after seeing the runway photos of the FW2011-12 collection. I've also gone mad for the plaid trend this season and I love Prada's Mondrian-esque take on it.

Being weird & interesting in Tar Magazine

EDITED Mon Sep 26, 2011

I love this editorial in Tar Magazine by artist Miranda July, Rodarte and photographer Autumn De Wilde. There's a hint of femininity and curious girlishness to it, and I love that the words depict conversation. Is it a conversation between two friends? A conversation this girl is having with herself?

To me, viewing the editorial is like watching a film tableau vivant: the actresses onscreen are still, or perhaps slightly quivering, but I can hear the words being spoken vividly in my head, and these words are real and organic.

The words are lovely and the clothes are Rodarte. Soft yet curious and cerebral. It's hip without even trying.

Fadeless Flowers in Vogue Korea

I'm currently obsessed with this gorgeous editorial from an unknown issue of Vogue Korea featuring clothing by Kenzo over the past 40 years. The editorial instantly reminded me of Ozu, who is one of my very favourite film directors.
