If we are defining streetwear as casual clothing worn by urban youth subcultures, and only recognising its global growth since the 1990’s then in the UK it has to start with Criminal Damage.
But the progression and evolution of the streetwear scene was impressive, influenced by the USA, Japan and France.
The Bedroom Brand Era
2014 was the golden age of UK streetwear, joining a bedroom brand wave started by Sik Silk, which opened up new designs and fresh takes on t-shirts and tracksuits. This was fast fashion reinvented; quick turnaround on production to deliver in-demands designs, with small repeat orders on successful designs.
Many copycats were inspired which resulted in a saturation of the marketplace, but few stayed the course like our list of the best streetwear brands in the UK.
