Streetwear Clothing

May 4, 2008
Streetwear is a kind of clothing style found in the fashion industries of garments. Fashion trend is not stagnant and it goes under massive change. In former times people had limited choice of clothing fashion. They had particular standard of fashion to follow. We have multiple choices in garment fashion available in recent times.

What does the 'term' streetwear mean? It is a kind of clothing style generally inspired by its surrounding lifestyle of the street. It deals with the urban themes like graffiti and encodes the culture of such surroundings into clothing fashion. Most importantly, it gives clothing a high quality.

Streetwear style of clothing is not a new thing invented right now. Such style of clothing was there around 1980's. It was the time when the movement of punk was in vogue and that was resulted in hip-hop trend. That is how it has some kind of similarities with hip-hop culture.

Streetwear has traveled a long trajectory to reach the present time. It was initiated by Shawn Stussy who offered his service in California as a local surfboard shaper of Laguna Beach. He sketched his own logo for surfboard design that was finally printed on t-shirts.

Hip-hop culture emerges to be self-expressive and this quality is better expressed in streetwear. The feelings of designers are expressed in their designs. As the people put on that designed cloths it becomes their expression of how they feel. In this respect it becomes something more than just designs on the cloths.

Many of the designers have drawn inspiration from streetwear style of clothing but none can match the quality and originality of it. It has entered into the modern world of fashion. Taking ideas from streetwear, items such as bags, sunglasses seem to be emerging in good quality.

Today Streetwear has almost become a synonym for fashion. It takes inspiration from the traditional look and style of the past at the one hand and modern youth culture of today at the other. It tends to be the fusion of these two traditional and modern outlooks. For example, one can wear suit one day or can prefer to wear well designed streetwear t-shirts the next day.
