Six of the best hipsters
Saturday 07 October 1995
2 Whistles, pounds 130 Fake fur prints are another big theme for our autumn/winter wardrobes. These dalmatian-print trews look as if they once belonged to Jimi Hendrix and have a truly foxy edge. They are lined for extra comfort and have a side zip. From Whistles, 27 Sloane Square, London SW1 and branches. Enquiries on 0171-730 9819
3 Gucci, pounds 215 The zip of these stretch hipsters is barely longer than an inch so there is a danger of revealing just a little too much. The acetate/viscose fabric is nicely delicate, but likely to snag. From Gucci, 33 Old Bond Street, London W1 and 18 Sloane Street, SW1. Enquiries on 0171-629 2716.
4 Agnes B, pounds 82 When Uma Thurman did the twist with John Travolta in Pulp Fiction her strides were by Agnes B. Reason enough to buy these: with front zip, two pockets and side vents at the ankles. Not as low slung as the others featured. From Agnes B, 235 Westbourne Grove, London W11 and 35-36 Floral Street, WC2 5 Red or Dead, pounds 51 Not your everyday trousers, unless you are a motorbike courier, or someone seriously into clubbing. They zip up at the back and the leg is tapered with quilting down the sides. Also available in white. From branches of Red or Dead nationwide. Enquiries 0171-937 3137
6 Kookai, pounds 69.99 These have a boyish appeal, but are possibly too stretchy: every lump and bump is on display. They're made from a polyester/wool/Lycra mix. A matching jacket is also available for those who want that ultra hip mannish suit. From branches of Kookai nationwide. Enquiries on 0171-937 4411
