Over the years, streetwear has become a global phenomenon
that has consistently seen growth in new markets worldwide. From streetwear United
States brands to up and coming UK
labels, streetwear has risen to iconic status.
While since the early 80s’ it has been the United States that has been at the
forefront of all streetwear fashion; many other countries have attempted to join
the urban clothing ranks.
In 1993 Japanese streetwear brand, A Bathing
Ape was formed and instantly grew a huge following from the U.S. hip hop clothing crowds. While
its own designs were enough to inspire millions it gained the most respect from
utilizing popular designs from SpongeBob Squarepants, Marvel comics characters,
Nintendo, DC Comics, and Hello Kitty a collaborations from popular artists like
UNKLE, Devisu, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, KAWS and Gary Panter.
However, as of late Europe
has emerged as the streetwear clothing powerhouse and the place where the top
brands are being produced. Originally formed in 1889, Carhartt clothing was
produced as a U.S.
based workwear brand. However; in 2006 Carhartt EMEA was introduced and saw a
large focus on marketing to the urban clothing community in Europe
instead of the normal blue collar crowd. As well, brands like DMC clothing,
1210 apparel, King Apparel, and Aerosoul clothing have seen the UK
streetwear scene grow to heights that the country has never seen.
