The Unknown Hipster Diaries

( 5 people added this )

Details

The Unknown Hipster is a creature born between the demimonde of Paris and the hip enclaves of New York. Of obscure pedigree and questionable occupation, the Unknown Hipster nonetheless seems to be able to attend exclusive openings, guest only parties, and private fashion shows. He mixes with artists and celebrities with all levels of fame from the painfully hip threeASFOUR in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to Karl Lagerfeld's ne plus ultra exclusive fitting chambers. In between, the Unknown Hipster crashes François Pinault s party in Venice, communes with Marina Abramovic at MoMA, has a run in with a faux John Baldessari, and attends the Occupy Wall Street protests. As written and drawn by the celebrated illustrator and author Jean Philippe Delhomme, the Unknown Hipster s adventures are by turns sly, perceptive, and extremely funny. Delhomme simultaneously celebrates and pokes fun at our culture s obsession with fame and exclusivity. Adapted from Delhomme's The Unknown Hipster blog in the form of a diary, this witty book precisely captures in words and drawings contemporary culture today.
