‘Hipster Culture is Dead’, claims Vice – Dickheads in skinny jeans still alive and well
Popular online (sort-of) news source Vice claimed that 2016 is the year that Hipster culture will die out, probably to be replaced by proto-goth, haute-mod or black pudding, depending on how the stars line up.
However, they assured readers that the pockets of the world where hipsters have reigned supreme will still be populated by a similar brand of haughty and superior lanky piss-streak wearing ill-fitting clothes, snapbacks and parading their silly matchstick legs in skinny jeans that would make Olivia Newton-John blush.
Hipsters are dead, but apparently boutique coffeeshops, vintage stores, artisanal food markets, high-top trainers and me avoiding East London at all costs unless absolutely necessary (/when I need to buy a new cardigan or want to play ping-pong while listening to loud hip-hop and drinking a £36 beer surrounded by douchebags) are all set to continue into the new year, and perhaps, indefinitely.
The hipster is dead! Long live the hipster!
