Actor Carlos Leon (L) and his daughter Lourdes Leon leave the Kabbalah Center on April 18, 2009 in New York City.  Both father and daughter are dressed to narrow the generation gap in hipster garb.  Lourdes is still embracing New York’s “downtown” aesthetic circa 2006 with black stripes on white and bold nerdy eyeglasses (she was wearing a similar look last summer – bottom left).  This rock n’ roll aesthetic was prevalent in circles close to designer Benjamin Cho, whose dark frames and striped shirts have become a signature of sorts over the last five years or so.  We talked about the trickle down effect of geek chic to the mainstream set earlier this year.  Are we ready to move on or will this look be with us for a while?
