"Streetwear" by Steven Vogel

The first and only book of its kind, Streetwear The Insider's Guide 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 photographs provide an encyclopedic overview of the world of streetwear, and the book offers a unique insider’s view of this highly creative field.

Find out:
• How the creative director of Burton first became involved in streetwear,
• What inspires the seminal designer and streetwear guru Hiroshi Fujiwara
• What multinational goliath Stüssy, the streetwear legend, has planned for the future of street fashion
• How to get in-depth access to leading magazines, web publishers and creative agencies.

Streetwear focuses on streetwear design, and streetwear media – magazines and website publishers. Illustrated with 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.

"Designers like Karl Lagerfield and Jean Paul Gaultier are finally given all (which is to say, none) of the (original) credit they deserve. Streetwear The Insider's Guide is a comprehensive and encyclopedic overview of the world of urban fashion that focuses exclusively on first-wave creative movements. While many fashion books credit streetwear with inspiring top designers’ couture collections, this may be the first book that focuses entirely on their roots, i.e., urban living and its resulting fashion sense."
