Centuries ago, clothing was designed to showcase luxury and power as only wealthy members of society could afford to be well-dressed and groomed.
Today, clothing is designed to express personal style and attitude.
Over the last years, streetwear has been playing a major role in the fashion industry. From ‘60s casual tennis style and court wear to RUN D.M.C.’s head-to-toe Adidas style, tracksuits and trainers slowly started to dominate the world.
Brands like Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Ellesse, Champion and Fila were conquering anything from runways to music videos.
In the 70’s, Adidas designed the iconic Stan Smith sneaker silhouette while during the 80’s, Nike came out with brands like Air Jordan and Air Max.
And soon after, the whole world was familiar with the popular street dress code.

The Logo Cult
Back in the 80’s and 90’s, it was important to know who’s who. From rock stars and rappers to large brand logos, everyone was focused on making their name unforgettable.
The logo cult is strong. All heritage brands are known for having their logo visibly featured on the garment. Sleeves, legs, back, front, side - taped or enlarged, a signature logo is simply a must-have feature.
