Armed with a greater sense of disillusionment our band of hipsters took to the streets of town in order to capture the perfect nonchalant class picture. Varying from the urban disinterested hipster to the coffee house beatnik, the pictures seem to cover the full spectrum of urban hipster chic.
The advanced class chose to pose amidst the hustle and bustle of the city centre which resulted in a taunting commentary on the total disregard normal commuters have for the now.
The Intermediate Class was seen in their natural habitat – the cornerstone of the Flat White Economic Model if you will – their local. They were too caught up in the moment of ephemeral bliss of single origin fair trade coffee to be bothered to look at the camera.
The mark of a true hipster is his or her (pronouns are so mainstream) ability to inconvenience others while barely enjoying what they themselves are doing. The Intermediate Class managed to crowd the cafe while showing complete indifference.
Fire escape? No. The Advanced Class were most likely discussing some obscure band you’ve never heard of. By the time you know which band we’re referring to it’s already going to be way to mainstream for us.
Not forgetting the challenge at hand, Trynity and Mike metamorphosed into two very distinct hipster personas: The Kloof Street Hipster and The Lumberjack. Their commitment to the challenge was thus proven – despite their better judgement and the weather forecast they chose to dress in some of the warmest clothes recently seen in the city of Cape Town.
