Walking around New York checking out guys – um, I mean, their outfits – we’ve noticed this Keith Haring hipster thing happening. We’re not talking about the drawings of cartoon dudes with squiggles around them that made Haring famous (although we love those too), but about Keith Haring’s personal style in the early 80s – his trademark repertoire of oddball glasses, grungey tight athletic gear, shorts and weird socks, frazzled hair, and tight dirty black jeans. We even think the Paul Smith spring 08 collection looks like a cleaned up, polished version of the Keith Haring look, but we miss the dirt and grime. If the Keith Haring, circa 1984, were to suddenly appear in Williamsburg, he would be the best-dressed guy in town. We revisited some old pictures of Haring, and kind of fell in love. Are we alone in this? --ALISON COOL
