#Mipsterz Mania Hits The Planet!

Horn-rimmed glasses, skinny jeans, Jack Daniel's shirt and scarf : typical symptoms of "hipster epidemic" that rages across the globe. Now young urban Muslims have paired the trend with the Islamic religion. It's the Mipster style.

The translation of this biber article provided by Google is --- interesting, to say the least. The original article in German is available here.

There is no escape : Whether Starbucks, MuseumsQuatier Kärtnerstraße , they are not to be overlooked with its horn-rimmed glasses and jute bags. Religion does not protect against this epidemic, including Muslims from hipster hype infested . They call themselves " Mipster " . Are strongly represented Mipster in the U.S., in many parts of Asia (Japan, Malaysia) and in the Gulf States . Meanwhile, there are they even here in Austria .

Shirt on the head

Mipsters let their values ​​and their faith in their style incorporated . For horn-rimmed glasses then comes a full beard. A 80 -year T -shirt will prompt a headscarf. Try to reconcile interests such as music, art and fashion with religious elements. The aim of the Mipster is to live their beloved lifestyle while paying respect to Islam . Think and act sustainably - which stands at Mipstern on the agenda. Even in Islam makes environmental protection a major role. By shopping for example, in second-hand shops instead of the big fashion houses, they act as if the meaning of Islam and the hipster movement.

Fashion they see as a means to an end . Mipsters want to change the perceptions of Islam and playful in a positive way... I wonder what Tavi Gevinson thinks of this?
