The anticipation of a time-limited chance to buy helps create a tight-knit and almost cult-like relationship between streetwear brands and their consumers. With a growing trend of prominent brand names and logos on clothing, there has been a development of “Hypebeast culture” connected to streetwear as of the mid-2000s. Hypebeasts are defined as buying clothes and accessories simply to impress others. This trend is inspired by a 1990s fashion for clothing covered in brand names and logos. Hypebeasts usually wear a variety of name brands at once to boast their affluence and display popular trends.
Brand launches by the chief executives of record companies followed, with russell simmons of def jam launching his phat farm label, sean combs of bad boy with sean john, and jay-z and damon dash of roc-a-fella records launching rocawear. Rap superstar 50 cent a few years later launched his g-unit clothing label, with the sneaker rights given to reebok. Social media is their top source (84%) of influence, followed by the other young, urban people they see around them.
Contemporary streetwear has an increasing influence on haute couture, and has itself been influenced by runway shows. Designers such as raf simons have had a large impact on the evolution of streetwear jackets through their influence on hip hop and popular culture. Other designers such as demna gvasalia, creative director of vetements and balenciaga, championed trends such as the chunky sneaker and oversized hoodie. We have adidas shoes, vans, lacoste shoes, hub shoes, supra shoes and much more.
Enthusiasts follow particular brands and try to obtain limited edition releases. Streetwear’s impact – both on retail culture and the numbers involved – has caught the attention of some of the most iconic, established brands in the retail and luxury goods sectors and fashion industry generally. Streetwear players come from various parts of the fashion industry. There are pure streetwear brands, while sportswear names are developing their traditional portfolio of sports equipment into a growing streetwear portfolio with the concept of cool, hip sneakers and hoodies. In addition, luxury brands are also working to gain a significant stake in the streetwear market. Customers are often rallied via social media to be the first to buy products that are only available directly from the brand, either in-store or online.
Although styles of shoes have changed, the link between sneaker culture and streetwear remains strong. The sneaker market grew more than 40 percent between 2004 and 2016. The evidence shows that growth expectations for streetwear are robust, even as there are some clouds gathering over the retail industry amid a global economic slowdown.
