Streetwear has become mainstream. Nearly every brand that makes t-shirts and hoodies is now boxed into that category. But a new generation of designers are challenging that norm and helping redefine the next phase of men’s fashion that isn’t rooted in hype. On this panel, we bring together designers and fashion experts Ev Bravado, Matthew Henson, Don C, Guillermo Andrade and Chris Gibbs to explore why the term streetwear has now become taboo, the challenges some brands faced trying to capture the luxury market, and what’s next.
ComplexCon(versations) gathers some of the most prolific figures in music, film, television, sports, and fashion for a series of panel discussions on the subjects that drive our culture. Watch more conversations here:

I never hear anyone mention Karl Kani as street wear. Kani literally was the first street wear brand. So many people copied that mans style.

The streets righfully appropriated some high end fashion brands. Lets talk Ralph Lauren for instance. The Lo Lifes made a lot of RL's shit a staple in the streets, still to this day they've been repping the LO. That is streetwear because its been so imbedded in the streets that especific Polo garments aren't even seen right outside of the streets. Come on, when you see a Polo Stadium jacket what is the first shit you think about? Exactly, Hip Hop and the streets. Thats my point!

Call it whatever you want. Urban streetwear was never luxury. People are trying to flex with a price tag. I went to a nice restaurant on New Years eve and people walking around looking like trash bags. What happened to dress codes. Someone teach these fools how to use an iron. If looking like a bumb is streetwear Fuck streetwear. What all of these designers are doing is stealing fashion from black and brown culture and selling it to rich white kids.

so basicallyyy big names are essentially limiting the visions these designers by wanting them to continuously create their vision of mainstream "Streetwear" (aka hoodies and tshirts) and the designers feel like their concepts outside of that label have difficulty getting recognition. The designers want to kind of use them to bank off the trend and don't necessarily allow them to innovate.

The thing is fine art some is not useful to humans at least a blender makes healthy shakes from fruits and you can create smoothies you can't buy no were fine art has no actual human value for health body clothing cleaning product any one can do a fried painting not anyone can engineer a 100 blender on Amazon anyone can paint a painting for a million is worthless platinum bars from a mint are an invest many you can make jewellery trade it it goes up you can make deals better trade for high value items you are were my perspective is if bankruptcy comes platinum can be sold to a big range of people paintings is so hard to sell its a few ditzy eccentric creatures that waste 2 million usd on a 50 canvas with black and white stripes

I don't understand the question "what comes after streetwear?" Is that like... "what is the next thing we're all going to conform to and copy?" If so, that's sad. Fashion, styles, and culture aren't dictated from above by a panel of "experts." It grows organically up out of the REAL culture and REAL people. These are mostly people who aren't paying $1000 for sneakers. Instead, they're taking what they have and making it special almost by accident. It's apart of the personality of the groups and people to dress in those new ways and they do it to escape the mandated fashion choices made by pretentious losers in the "fashion industry" who think they know best. The next wave can't really be predicted. However, once it comes onto the scene it will be manipulated, picked apart, adopted, and disseminated among the masses just like STREETWEAR has. Streetwear will be old news and lame (except to the people who actually loved it regardless) and this new thing will be on a pedestal. That's the nature of fashion because it's all about CASH. The industry can't make money and stay rich without making you, the masses, feel inferior, less than, uncool, and behind the times. So, for people secure in their own culture (self made or otherwise), there isn't anything "after" streetwear because they've been dressing how they like the whole time (like me and many others). For the people who can't think for themselves and who need to copy others to manifest a feeling of importance, there will always be something new that they HAVE to cop.

Streetwear.. Hmm. I never knew what it meant and I still don't. I felt like it used to be what urban kids/ppl wore in major metropolitan areas like LA, NYC, Chicago etc. For other parts of the country, I don't think it was really a thing. And now, I think streetwear is completely luxury items. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with individuality or creativity. Most people look almost exactly the same and they value the individual pieces over the style. Anyone with the cash can just buy the correct, hyped "pieces" and be considered "streetwear." There's nothing special about it. It's funny that people are paying abnormal amounts of cash for basic items like hoodies, sneakers, and t shirts which before were considered lazy to wear. However, it's in the nature of capitalism and consumer culture to exploit what's happening among the masses and then make exclusive versions that exclude others and make them feel left out.

Expensive streetwear (luxury streetwear) will die because that’s what killed it, the cheaper affordable street will always live because that’s how, where & what it came wasn’t about the money it was about the style, creativity & expression/ social commentary Check me out @Guudlukin on IG

The difference between a streetwear designer and a fashion designer is the ability and knowledge of clothing construction and the manipulation of textiles. Much respect to them, but If streetwear designers don’t want to be called that they need to learn the craft of fashion design.

One more thing though. Attention designers: Don't be bitching about consumers don't buy $2000 suits, and instead opt for a $300 hoodie. There is a thing called disposable income, and a $2000 suit will only speak to a very very small category of consumers. Okay so, why not just continue pumping out hoodies/tees/hats. and make a $50,000 one-off to let some rich clown buy it. Just saying.

The Owner of Union LA is the only one that needs to be talking. "Streetwear" was probably coined around the time LA was making noise with its old LRG, and stussy, and Hundreds. nothing more, nothing less. Also, all these clones buying $300+ sweatshirts are suckas. and No, I ain't buying $150 for a t-shirt either. Sucker central for real. Ain't nothing "Street" about what these brands are selling. It leans towards Luxury. and that works in favor of the traditional fashion houses. Again, sucker central.

Wild Doge man SoHo in 2015 was just an awesome community of people who loved fashion. Those insane supreme and bape lineups back in the day was this awesome culture of meeting people with the itch for street and art culture. It’s tougher to find that these days but SoHo still shows its core of love for streetwear at like consignment stores, thrifts, archive sales, and other art events

Yuichi Totani Mês atrás
@Wild Doge Yup. One can probably say that the traditional fashion houses realized who the next wave of consumers are gonna be and are trying to win their pockets. again, who gives a shit though. If you're making $150K a year, by all means go for those luxury/streetwear bullshit. you gonna be looking like every other unoriginal dude. shiiit, i'm even thinking of looking for some old LRG or some shit at this point lol
