There is no simple way to describe it because it is ever-changing and evolving. But if there was one word that captured the many distinct varieties and identities of streetwear culture, it would be ‘rebellion’. It goes against the mainstream, against the establishment.
… sneakers, T-shirts and tracksuit pants with logos and printed graphics may come to mind. Yet, streetwear culture is so much more.
It has a unique flavour and is much more than just a single culture: it influences numerous subcultures. It is far more than a fashion trend; it is a movement.
An identity that goes against the norms of society to give a voice to those who are not always heard.
