Recent seasons have sầu seen historic haute-couture houses partnering with skatewear brands. Meanwhile, hoodies và harness bags are now routinely sent down fashion-week runways by labels that, until very recently, were using the same platform to lớn wheel out razor-sharp tailoring và trench coats.

Some say this crossover marks the final nail in the coffin for the term “streetwear”, but while there’s no denying we’re in the midst of a new fashion climate, the brands that have always championed this style are still very much doing their thing.

Here we run through the best streetwear labels on the face of the earth, & why they’re worth having on your sartorial radar.

The biểu tượng logo soon found its way onlớn tees, hoodies & beyond, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Carhartt WIP


For a long time, in the States, Carhartt was nothing more than a workwear brvà, making high-unique overalls and apparel designed lớn take a beating. However, in Europe, the label took on another form. Here, you were more likely to see DJs & skaters wearing its goods than mechanics & carpenters.

The Hundreds


You might not remember a time before streetwear và high fashion were both one and the same, but The Hundreds does. This LA original sprung up in 2003, making it, we suppose, a second- or third-generation streetwear label.

Yet here we are, & in spite of all the unprecedented madness, The Hundreds is still very much doing its own thing on its own terms.

Palace may be the big British streetwear br& of today, but here in the UK we were making our mark on the scene way before the London skate label was even a twinkle in Lev Tanju’s eye. Case in point: Maharishi. This camo-loving, Asian-inspired, hip-hop-influenced melting pot of a br& marked Britain’s first real foray into streetwear & in the 1990s it was everywhere. But Maharishi wasn’t just trailblazing in terms of style, it also had – & still has – a focus on fair trade that is central khổng lồ everything it does. Maharishi was “woke” before woke was even a thing và in the here và now, its ethos & styling are more relevant than ever before.
