Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology

by Richey Piiparinen
     
 

Rust Belt Chic is churches and work plants hugging the same block. It is ethnic as hel1. It is Cleveland punk. It is getting vintage t-shirts and vinyl for a buck that are being sold to Brooklynites for the price of a Manhattan meal. It is babushka and snakeskin boots. It is wear: old wood and steel and vacancy. It is contradiction, conflict, and standing

Overview

Rust Belt Chic is churches and work plants hugging the same block. It is ethnic as hel1. It is Cleveland punk. It is getting vintage t-shirts and vinyl for a buck that are being sold to Brooklynites for the price of a Manhattan meal. It is babushka and snakeskin boots. It is wear: old wood and steel and vacancy. It is contradiction, conflict, and standing resiliency. But most centrally, Rust Belt Chic Is about home, or that perpetual inner fire longing to be comfortable in one's own skin and community. This longing is less about regressing to the past than it is finding a future through history.
