Issue 41 – Streetwear

Issue 41 – Streetwear


‘To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it.’ Charles Bukowski

 Streetwear is, above all, a paradox. It operates in a precarious space between fast and slow fashion, between high and low culture, between timeless style and fleeting gimmick. Dada-esque in its marmite-like appeal, streetwear is both the pariah and the poster boy of contemporary fashion. It is a cultural phenomenon that has sparked debate and divided opinion for almost three decades. It’s a style and a mindset that boasts historical relevance and creative overlap in spades. And it also happens to be the underlying theme of this month’s issue. Enjoy.
