It's hip to hate 'hipsters'

The notion of a 'hipster' is certainly not a new phenomenon. Think of the cool cats who hung around Warhol's factory, or more recently the 'Shoreditch twats' so hilariously ridiculed in the series Nathan Barley.

Deriding these individuals has become a favoured pastime of designers, creative sorts and those 'in-the-know'. Funnily enough these are the same professions that many of these hip young things either work in or aspire to work in, and the above attitude of exclusivity is exactly what many people love to rail against. Ironic really.
