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.
