Snapshot, 1958: The early hipsters of Aspen, Colorado
Just another creative agency out for its Christmas party (or something like that)... The caps, sunglasses, ski suits, hairstyles – this bunch wouldn’t look out of place in the trendy neighbourhoods of London or Manhattan today, even if they’re greying a little round the edges. And the image was found not on Instagram, but in the archives of Getty Images, taken in April 1958, in Aspen Colorado – ironically one of the hippest destinations for winter sports today.
