Streetwear, Steven Vogel
The Insider's Guide
Steven Vogel The first and only book of its kind, Streetwear is the definitive street fashion bible — a guide to clothes created or inspired by urban living, by the key designers around the globe. Hundreds of streetwear designs and product photographs have been assembled to provide an encyclopaedic overview of the world of streetwear. Written and produced by those immersed in the subculture, this book offers a unique insider's view of this burgeoning and highly creative field.
Writer and curator Steven Vogel uses his informal, yet perceptive and incisive interview technique to look at over forty leading street fashion brands, examining what motivates and inspires the designers and entrepreneurs behind the meteoric rise of street fashion from urban underground to the commercial realm. Here you will find out how the creative director of Burton first became involved in streetwear, discover exactly what inspires the seminal designer and streetwear guru Hiroshi Fujiwara, and what multinational goliath Stüssy, the streetwear legend, has planned for the future of street fashion.
Organized into two sections, Streetwear focuses on streetwear design, and also streetwear media. Just as designers create t-shirts, sports and fashion apparel, or graffiti artists produce designs for skate and snowboards and accessories, magazine and website publishers help to drive the promotion of the streetwear phenomenon. For the first time ever, this book offers in-depth access to eight of these leading magazines, web publishers and creative agencies.
Illustrated with over 1000 streetwear designs, product sketches, graphics and photographs, and complete with a full and detailed reference section, this book will be seized on by all street enthusiasts, from fashion and advertising professionals to the millions who love buying and wearing streetwear. Unique and highly accessible, it will inspire anyone with a desire to understand the history of streetwear or appreciate the aesthetic appeal of this worldwide urban style.
