recessionista-childhood_small The latest VW Citi Golf campaign introduces us to the concept of the Recessionista: a fashion-forward individual who looks good despite “these tough economic times.” They are fashionistas making the most of the recession. They pillage their grandmother’s wardrobe, find ultra-stylish clothes at thrift stores and invent super-cool pastimes that don’t require too much money. 2009 is the year of the Recessionista, and Citi Golf is the ultimate Recessionista Car.
