Streetwear has been a style that has been around for a long time now. In fact, it goes back to the 1980s with Shawn Stussy and his surfer-style brand. Since then, streetwear has changed massively over the years yet they all have the same idea. Baggy fit and clothes that have their brand all over.
If you are from the United Kingdom, you would have noticed that streetwear is becoming prominent in stores such as JD Sports and Selfridges. However, the brands that are in these two stores are completely different to one another.
Let’s start with the biggest on the market and arguably the most premium streetwear brand out there. It has collaborated with many luxury brands around the world which is why they are so popular. Not to mention the flash sales that they do throughout the year.
Supreme was one of the first brands in mens streetwear. Not to mention it recently became a billion dollar company. If you are looking for premium clothing with a streetwear twist then Supreme will be the brand for you.
A brand that is completely different to Supreme yet is highly respected in the world of streetwear. Palace is a brand that took the streetwear community by storm back in 2009. It was founded by a man called Lev Tanju and he is responsible for one of the most prominent skate companies the UK has seen.
This is a brand that is on the rise because of its different take on streetwear fashion. Palace is a brand that is doing everything right at the moment. It has targeted all the major cities that are the biggest fans of Streetwear. These are London, New York, Tokyo and Los Angeles. If you see a streetwear brand then they are probably from these cities.
It would not be a streetwear article if we did not talk about a Japanese label for streetwear. Bathing Ape (also known as BAPE) is an extremely popular streetwear brand across the world. A much more premium brand compared to Palace, BAPE is a brand that is recognised by celebrities and has been around since 1993.
Sportswear Kings? You probably read the first word of that and immediately questioned how they have made it onto a streetwear list. Well, there is a simple reason for that and that is because streetwear does not just include your usual baggy and heavily printed logos for clothing.
In fact, plain tracksuits have also become extremely popular in the world of streetwear. The best thing about these brands is that it is a step away from those steep prices of the other brands above. Yet they still provide high-quality clothing.
Streetwear is one of the biggest styles within the fashion industry. More brands seem to be getting on board with this style and it is understandable why. There are many different brands out there that have their own take on streetwear. So browse the stores online to see the brands that suit you the best.
