Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week - 7/9/12

Hold on to your butts, it's time for the Annoying J. Crew Model for the week of July 9th!

Here's an image recently found on J. Crew's website:













I'm not entirely sure what this marketing strategy is all about.  Why the "hobo" angle?  Aren't hobos dirty, smelly, and with only a few teeth in their head?  Why doesn't her pack have a stick through it, which she balances on her shoulder?  And what's the deal with "biennial"?  What the hell does a two-year period have to do with hobodom?  I guess with J. Crew models, this is something akin to being a weekend hobo.

A "hobo" is also a kind of slouchy bag, as seen here. "Biennial"? Yeah, that's dumb.
