Anyone who's ever spent all of five minutes in Hamra can attest to the overwhelming amount of hipsters in Beirut.
With stores like House on Mars and Ants frequenting the area, the fashion-sensitive Lebanese (and more often than not, non-Lebanese) have plenty of options to decorate their closets, wrists, ears, and hair.
Running rampant with dreadlocks, fake glasses, bow ties, suspenders and more bracelets than anyone should ever own, Beirut is home to several breeds of the "you-probably-haven't-heard-of-this" elite. Flocking to underground #cafes to write #blogposts about how they heard a #bomb go off and are fluent in #Arabic (because they can order mana2eesh), hipsters are a dime a dozen--but it takes remarkable eccentricity to make it to BuzzFeed's list of the top 10 hipsters in the whole world.
So meet Jorgen Ekvoli, the man who wore a floral jumpsuit in public. Spotted in Beirut in his bright pink regalia, Ekvoli was right at home with the masses of "fashion forward" risk takers that make up the really bored upper class of Beirut. And note, if you will, the unnecessary green beanie and self-rolled cigarettes.
I just wonder what poor throw-up couch he skinned to create this heinous and probably disgustingly expensive monstrosity.
