MOMENTS | Meme: Dads Are The Original Hipster, Remixing and Rehashing the Styles of the ‘70s x the ‘90s

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Father’s Day is tomorrow, so in honor of all the dads and their classic dad fashions, we’re reposting our fondness for Dads are the Original Hipsters. It’s a pretty self-explanatory blog that features the dads from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, all of whom were rocking the facial hair, thick-rimmed glasses, and the mix-and-match patterned clothing coveted by hipsters today. It’s kind of passé to make fun of hipsters, so we’re rehashing this meme #TBT out of love—mostly for the dads who were too cool before it was even a thing. Fashion and style are always taking cues from the past; the silhouettes from the ‘70s popped up again in the ‘90s, and in 2015, we’re still working through our ‘90s obsession. Here’s to the badass dads who killed it in their flannels, cycling caps and blasé attitudes.

BAMIN NOTES | Trend: Fresh Dressed Documentary, the History of Hip-Hop Through The Lens of Fashion

Fresh Dressed: The Revolution Of Fashion Born On The Streets, a documentary that explores the evolution of hip-hop through the lens of urban fashion, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend. Directed by Mass Appeal’s creative director Sacha Jenkins and co-produced by Nas, the film combines old-school video footage with insightful commentary from icons like Big Daddy Kane, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams. Jenkins takes the viewer on a journey through the history of hip-hop and fashion; from the ‘70s South Bronx B-boys’ custom outfits to ‘80s hip-hop tailor of Harlem Dapper Dan’s remixed clothing to the ‘90s mainstream rise of urban sportswear and its on-going influence on the modern day.

MOMENTS | Louise Alsop SS15, Gucci SS15, Fashion Intern Problems LFW, Kendrick Lamar “i”, Meadham Kirchhoff SS15 Reject Everything Zine


1. Louise Alsop SS15 was ‘90s ratchet at its best. The collection gave us neon Baby-G watches, bandana tops, spaghetti straps and cornrows.
2. The ‘70s aren’t about to quit either. The Gucci SS15 collection went full psychedelic groupie. 
3. Your weekly dose of humor via Fashion Intern Problems. The infinitely amusing blog takes on London Fashion Week.
4. Kendrick Lamar announced the first single, titled “i”, from his highly anticipated upcoming album.
5. Here’s a fantastic analysis of the feminist, punk and queer culture fanzine, Reject Everything, Meadham Kirchhoff distributed at their SS15 show.
