Up and coming UK Streetwear Brands
Underground streetwear brands are always available, but you may need to go off the beaten track as the big retailers won’t stock them. It’s usually best to buy direct from their websites as they are usually independent. While some are obviously influenced by the American big names, there are a few gems with a signature unique style.

What is Streetwear clothing?
UK Street style is a type of fashion that originates from British urban fashion culture and produces styles that differ from mainstream fashion. Street fashion is considered to have emerged from grassroots streetwear fashion and youth culture. Different clothing brands can have various influences such as Californian surf, skate culture, hip hop fashion, 1980s nostalgia, modern haute couture fashion and Japanese street fashion.
But ultimately the streetwear world of logo and graphic tees is mostly inspired by surf and skate apparel. Although in recent years there has been a noticeable shift towards fashion forward luxury sportswear as the target audience ages, while some have stuck close to their roadman origins. Either way, the UK streetwear scene continues to grow and evolve with Manchester based brand MDV constantly levelling up the streetwear game.
Urban clothing and streetwear style is often casual, comfortable basics such as t-shirts, skinny jeans, snapback and baseball caps, and trainers (sneakers for you yanks). A style we know and love with the top streetwear brands UK and beyond. From Manchester to London streetwear brands match the fashion industry toe for toe with footwear, headwear, tee’s, retro and athleisure.
Streetstyle clothing brands have become the fashion choice for the social media savvy Generation Z, the golden age of Social Influencers, and reality TV endorsements. urban garments are now affordable luxury fashion, bridging the gap between the high street and the catwalks. Comfort and convenience, fast fashion at the fingertips. The clothing choice of the Love Island and Hypebeast generation.
Manchester’s and London’s streetwear scene is ever growing, with oversized tees and bold graphics galore.
What are UK Drip Brands?
Drip is a slang word used in American Hip Hop which in effect means dripping with confidence and money by wearing expensive clothes and bling jewellery in a stylish look.
So drip brands are basically the expensive high-end streetwear, and the UK reference is more that’s it’s worn here in Britain and styled by British Influencers, with the brands being the US and Japanese streetwear like BAPE, Ed Hardy, Rick Owens and Supreme.
