A Brief History of Streetwear

By Alberto Morse Subscribe to RSS | May 14th 2012 | Views:

Today, the word streetwear has a special place in the fashion industry along with other fashion style. It is labelled as high quality apparel that gets its inspiration from the environment. The street is the main influencing factor such as the graffiti that you see on the streets. Sometimes this graffiti expresses current or past issues related to social and political scene.

Are you wondering when and where streetwear originated? Many people are speculating the year but the history says it was born between late 1970’s and early 1980’s. It was the time when the punk and hip hop appeared in the music industry. The mainstream refused them that made the punk and hip hop create their own signature style. Looking back, you can also link them to surf scenes and skateboard circles.

Streetwear primarily begun in skate and surf scenes in California that is why it is formerly known as surf wear and skate wear. More brands appeared and were spread across America starting in the mid 80’s. Soon after, the rest of the world followed the trend.

After America, Japan’s market was invaded by the streetwear. They incorporated their own style with that of the Western to create their own streetwear mark. The designers in Japan get their influences from toys, gadgets and anime including their own street art. Then after a while, this influenced the whole streetwear market and diverse designs and styles were soon embraced by the rest of the world. Streetwear established itself in the fashion industry all around the world during the mid 90’s. Europe was the last one penetrated by this fashion style.

Streetwear is now a flourishing business and still growing continuously. Many designs and styles are now out in the market which resulted from innovations and ideas brought up together by fashion designers. At this present time, streetwear is crossing its boundaries and continuously moving ahead into the fashion industry. Bags, footwear and sunglasses are starting to appear along with the style.

Now, many are wondering what will be the future of streetwear. While original and new designs of hoodies, jeans and t-shirts, remain visible in the market, some are mix-matching different style. Some brands mix and match smart wear with casual wear to produce a style that is smart looking yet distinct. As time passes by, more brands and styles are coming out in the market for both men and women.
