Wee ‘tache trend
Still with Time Out London … in the April 24 issue Dan Jones writes about moustaches and the Handlebar Club, where London’s “moustached elite” gather at the Windsor Castle pub every Friday. He suggests that if you can’t grow your own, you fake it with a falsie.
Have you noticed there’s a ‘tache trend growing at the moment? Specifically, indie girls and moustaches. Last year it was all about getting a moustache tattooed on your index finger for an instant (and tricky) disguise.
But now it’s all about old-school moustache disguises (and most importantly, being photographed in said disguise). Not to mention “moustaching”, the classic method of defacing photos and magazine ads. In fact, you can purchase vinyl stickers for this very purpose from Moustache Me, who claim they are “upper lip vigilantes with a world vision of peace and moustaches for all.”
There’s also a growing popularity for moustache motifs. Just key in “moustache” into the search engine on Etsy and you’ll find all manner of mos, with whiskers spreading across necklaces and brooches to mirrors and pillows.
