Trends of the Angels
Fashion has been steadily making its way over to the West Coast over the past few years and Los Angeles, the sprawling city in the state of California which was earlier regarded as a land of distressed denim, graphic tees and flipflops, is now started to catch the attention of designers from all over the world. Although there is still a long way to go before it joins the ranks of the top - notch cities like New York and Paris in terms of high fashion prestige, the City of Angels has almost become a hub for some of the new and growing brands like Rodarte, BUSCEMI and Joyrich - all of whom attract inspiration from the city's non-conformist and laid back attitude, while the creative director of Saint Laurent, Hedi Slimane is also ased there.
However, LA's streetwear pedigree is indisputable; everybody from the classic brands like The Hundreds and the Undefeated right through to the contemporary trailblazers Fear of God and Odd Future are all now based in the city.
