surface rainbeaus 01 Surfaces Rain BeausAlexander Neumann photographed ‘Rain Beaus’ for Surface, and it’s a wild blur of fantastic color, movement, and daring shapes. Asymmetrical silhouettes are rendered in solid brights, and then there are the rainbow stripes breaking up simple sections of grass green and orange.

Accessories leveled by hipsters

hipster header pic1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore GuttedThe hipsterdom fashion universe is a pastiche of things defined more or less by the level of irony they can convey. This means - like a ravenous, all-consuming blob - the hipster wolf-pack adopts certain items and inadvertently redefines them until they’ve lost most of their original meaning. Here’s a short list of things outlining exactly what we mean.

Bow Ties

Just because you wear this inexplicable thing doesn’t mean you can’t/won’t do stuff like raise taxes on candy-ass commoners, politely and gentlemanly suppress a silly insurrection on one of your many faraway colonies, and wager your country’s GDP on a horse race over brandys and cigars.Also, the white man best not fuck with you.What it means now: How ironic. I’m wearing a bowtie.hipster bow tie1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore Gutted

Full rim eyeglasses

I’m wearing square glasses.hipster glasses21 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore Gutted

Wool caps

wool cap1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore GuttedWho used to weat it: People who were cold. Because it’s a wool cap, and…that’s what you do when you’re outside and it’s cold. You wear something on your head. No big deal, unless you have half a mind to take on nature while you’re at it…wool cap wearer1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore GuttedWhat it used to mean: Well, let’s see here. You wear this because it’s cold outside and you don’t want you’re ears to freeze and shrivel. When it’s not cold outside, you don’t wear it. Unless you want to hide some high pattern baldness, why the hell would you wear this thing when it’s 90 degrees outside?What it means now: How ironic. I’m wearing a wool cap, and it’s 90 degrees outside.hipster knitted cap1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore Gutted

Fedoras

Or maybe you’re going to secret conference to discuss assassinating the heads of the five families. Or maybe some dame just walked into your office with a sob story, and it’s up to you to solve the case and leave her sexually indebted to you.What it means now: How ironic. I’m wearing a fedora.hipster fedora1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore Gutted

In your time, rock stars were too busy banging chicks and pounding Jack Daniels to write mushy, self-pitying break-up songs about their high school girlfriends. While everybody else snaps back to reality, you’re going to smoke this J and have AIDS-less sex with your woman. Oh yeah, there’s a chance you might be the father of somebody reading this.What it means now: How ironic. I’m wearing gigantic headphones.hipster headphones1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore Gutted

Keffiyeh Scarves

The hearty blood of your ancestors inks your keffiyeh in black and white. The fabric adorning your neck is woven with centuries of tradition and sand-weathered pride. It’s not a keffiyeh, it’s a way of life.What it means now: How ironic. I’m wearing a keffiyeh. If anybody asks, I’m protesting against corporations. Corporations, man.hipster keffiyeh1 6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co opted, And Therefore GuttedDid we miss out on anything that should’ve made the list, at least for the sake of a few more pictures? If a few more pictures and perhaps better examples is what you desire, be sure to check out latfh.com, short for ‘Look at this fucking hipster’.

GQ Style White Riot Gang

white riot gang GQ 01 horz GQ Style White Riot Gang
Scarves! We all need ‘em, and this White Riot Gang editorial in GQ Style Italia has enough panache to leave us wanting a few more for flourishing purposes. Of course, the sense of movement in the spread, shot by Kai Z.Feng, is helped along by jumping, plus wind machines lifting light scarves for extra movement. As for the actual labels in the spread? We have Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Gucci making an appearance in GQ Style, looking perfectly good with blazers, jeans, and coats (double-breasted welcome).After I got over the scarves, I had another look back through the GQ spread for the good finds mixed in with the accessories. One of my favorite combinations is the orange-printed, lightweight silk scarf with a denim shirt underneath, plus a jacket up top. It’s easy to replicate via color and fabric matching, as are the white shirts and a rolled foulard, braided belts and denim, and contrasting silk prints between shirts and scarves. The prints are getting the denim out of the stuffy cooler seasons, the scarves are adding some movement and interest, and the jackets are lending finish to the look. Will it be slicked-back hair for you this time? [via modeman]
