The Original Hipster“Our lovely model, Chris, has lived on Mercer Street for a few decades by choice. I’m calling this series The Original Hipster because on most days he doesn’t even look like he’s truly homeless."
Check out this controversial editorial from Parson school graduate Julia Chesky. Based on the book The Pushcart War, this series of images features a homeless model named Chris. It brings a whole new meaning to the term 'street fashion'. The question is - is it stylish social commentary or a fashion faux pas?
