“The best fashion show is coming to life every day on the streets.”
Street style is an anarchic approach to fashion rooted in Twentieth-Century British fashion culture and brought to the forefront by photographers and journalists who chronicled the outside like Terry Jones, Bill Cunningham, and Amy Arbus. Opposing Haute Couture, it produces styles based on individual expression, negotiated identities, subculture influences, and intersecting styles and trends.
Critics of current street style culture argue the movement has lost its authenticity, becoming more “models on assignment” than real people expressing themselves over time. This does not dampen its influence: street style has evolved from a fringe faction into a viral, powerful aspect of the industry, and juggernauts are taking note (Virgil Abloh, founder of streetwear line Off-White, was recently named artistic director of Louis Vuitton Men).
