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.

MOMENTS | Meme: Instagram Account @ArtlexaChung Draws Comparisons Between Alexa Chung’s Photos and Classical Art

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

Sisters Beatriz and María Valdovín, the duo behind the @artlexachung Instagram, combine images of British model Alexa Chung with classical and modern art to draw attention to the similarities between the two. Aside from the delightfully pun-y name—Artlexa Chung, c’mon that’s pretty amazing—the real treat lies in the strangely accurate parallels. Beatriz, a business and law student, and María, who completed her master’s in art history, found inspiration in Instagram accounts like @copylab and @flyartproductions. These accounts found different ways to transform art into modern day memes, and the sisters aren’t half-assing their work either. Each comparison is well studied and often quite educational, drawing attention to art that dates as far back as the 1600s.

MOMENTS | Meme: #TBT The Sartorial-twist Remixes x Generates Mash-ups Of The Sartorialist’s Street Style Photographs


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
The Sartorial-twist popped up back in 2011, but the mismatched style collages are still as cool as ever. The meme generates new street style ensembles by combining different photos from fashion photographer Scott Schuman’s street style blog The Sartorialist. We love that it gives the otherwise very manicured and polished street style photos a fun Frankenstein twist. Though the randomized style collages are a little peculiar, the end result is always something more new and inspiring than the original ever could be. All you have to do is hit refresh to get a whole new combination.

#BAMINATE | How Would Pope Francis Wear BAMIN?


Even if you’re not religious, you had to be living under a rock if you didn’t hear the announcement last month that Pope Benedict XVI was retiring. Even though his reasoning was “old age.” It was quite scandalous news since he was the first pope to resign since 1415—almost as #awkward as his “unique papal style.”  
Pope Francis has since been ushered into the papacy, and besides not appreciating contemporary art, he actually seems kind of hip for a few reasons:
