Streetwear has become a global phenomenon. From their origins in American workwear, via west coast subcultures, extreme sports and incorporating the best in graphic design, the leading streetwear brands have become influential beyond the sphere of fashion alone, with connections to the worlds of art, advertising, music and interiors that make them as potent as "designer" brands many times their size. Showcasing 32 cult streetwear brands, this book focuses not on the endless me-too labels, but the exciting pioneers that have shaped the market since the late 1980s. Cult Streetwear tells the stories of the people behind the brands-from entrepreneurs to graffiti writers, DJs to surf dudes to sneaker nuts, from LA to NYC, London to Tokyo.
