To some, streetwear is a lifestyle, their designated arrival with no departure, to the expression of their life. To others it’s an addition to the many facets of how they choose to visually express themselves. And to the rest, they may not have even heard of it yet, or have chosen to resist the allure streetwear presents.
Streetwear is experimental at its very roots, created from the energy of young people trying to find a style, through various trials and errors, that was truly their own. Fashion prior to this was more structured, suits, sets, matching tops and bottoms, dress shoes, heels, and sneakers were to be worn with sportswear, unless an emergency called for otherwise. Streetwear broke that that mold with a unique advance towards fashion, a do-it-yourself methodology that sparked innovation. With rigidity bent, the style is constantly evolving and has become a global phenomenon.
An unorthodox fashion steeped in comfort and expression, freedom is just another synonym for streetwear. What is streetwear? Elements of hip-hop, sportswear, punk, new wave and heavy metal have influenced what is today known as streetwear.
Thus, the streets have spoken! Streetwear is here to stay, visual art in motion has never looked better.
