What once was rooted in the underground scene, streetwear style has taken over our closets and has made its way into luxury fashion. This fashion revolution elevated how we perceived the intersection of comfort and style.
Wherever the design inspiration comes from, Streetwear fashion has always been about staying true to your own identity. And if you wanted to magnify the roots of streetwear, you have to start looking in the East. Asia’s take on streetwear has been defined as the ‘cutting-edge of casual cool,’ mixing tradition and subculture that sets it apart from the Western countries.
From our very own country, all the way to different parts in the East; Here are some Asian streetwear brands that we currently love!
