Well, it can be a fashion statement, a hipster talisman, a "retro" statement, a "tool" for those who cannot make a sharp, properly focussed image with anything and therefore use a camera that is incapable of forming a sharp, properly focussed image; fools who've bought the hype that it makes 'dreamy" images, and so on.
It's very well marketed to a specific target (see above).
