Where did hipsters come from? They’re cool-aloof-elusiveness traces its origins to 1985, in a town called Split in the former Yugoslavia. Present-day hipsters find the most similarities to between themselves and these subjects. Split and it’s youth culture were unlike any other city on the Croatian Adriatic coast, and it showed. Exposed legs, Levi’s jeans, Coca-Cola and uncensored movies “A socialist paradise!”. And of course, the most telling tip off of a hipster, their fashion. Before streetwear blogs and fashion bloggers were a thing, these Balkan proto-hipsters knew what was up.
Floral scarf, big shades, red pants, berets. It’s all come ’round again, especially for Spring / Summer 2012.
A beat up, brown leather side saddle bag is perfect for the on-the-go hipster. Note the best accessory of all; cute dude aka arm candy… (vegan of course)
These bold prints remind me of this article in Harper’s Bazaar. These bold prints also make me feel like dancing.
I think this girl is rocking a military style jacket for fashions-sake. Either that or she’s part of the Balkan-babe army. Lady in red glove wears perfectly over-sized men’s outer coat.
Hipsters in jeans, Hipsters in parks.. Some things never change.
Purple swag, anyone? Whaddup A$AP!?
I could swear I saw similar looks when I Googled: “street style 2012 Fashion Week…”
Vacation-braids are not such a good look, but her denim jacket and cool-girl shades save the day.
More hipsters, more park benches. Over-alls were back on the fashion radar for a hot minute. Coloured pants are definitely on the rise. And just look at that ankle roll. Nice work, ladies.
Pops of red (to match Coca-Cola cans?) and a large leather belt on a timeless trench. And of course, the ultimate hipster staple – a perfectly pointed fedora.
Colour blocking! And that sleeve-zipper amazingness is well, amazingness…
I own that lime green sweater. It’s black, and I bought it from AA. Well, maybe not the exact one, but the knit is implausibly similar.
