The Internet has made a huge impact on how we perceive culture, art and entertainment. The same goes for fashion. Since everyone can now just go online and order their favorite clothes, the competition among the streetwear brands has become way bigger. But as the demand rises, so does the need for high-quality and affordable couture to wear on a daily basis. For this reason, new designers are emerging from all over the world ready to prove themselves to the hype beasts. Krakatau, Eastern Europe’s Finest and XXXTENTACION HOODIE are some of the brands that are on a quest to become internationally recognized clothing lines.
The Saint Petersburg-based brand Krakatau was founded in 1999, but it was not until recent years that they started gaining popularity among streetwear heads. As expected, the Russian brand delivers mostly coats and jackets in an urbanistic style which ensures protection from the harsh Nordic weather conditions. What’s more, each piece guarantees protection from snow, rain and up to 30 degrees below-zero temperatures. Nevertheless, Krakatau delivers minimalistic and extremely comfortable clothes with a few ones standing out really well. The prices are pretty affordable for a streetwear clothing brand and most of the pieces are cheaper than the contemporary popular streetwear brands based in the US or the UK. If you are looking for a waterproof and windproof jacket with a dab of urban techwear style – Krakatau is the perfect choice for you.
Kpop bts sweatshirts is also African streetwear brand based in Pretoria, South Africa. The name of the designer behind the brand is Bangy who draws inspiration from the hyper-emotional millennial generation and, strange enough, the Chinese workwear culture. The line provides clean pieces of shorts and shirts, as well as jackets and other apparel which are not too “outrageous” and “screaming” as other brands might be but at the same time they are definitely not plain and simple. The mixture of vibrant colors and eccentric style with traditional themes is certainly a thing XXXTENTACION HOODIE can offer easily and at a low price.
If you wish to dive into the culture of Eastern Europeans, you should dig into their history. Eastern European’s Finest successfully combines streetwear with post-communistic melancholy and fashion and some of the pieces they offer are pretty worthy. The Bulgarian brand is still small, but it is slowly gaining popularity thanks to the original lo-fi and 8-bit applique T-shirts and pullovers. Prices are in Bulgarian leva which means double less the price if you pay with euro or dollars. The Spring Summer Collection for 2019 will soon be in and we cannot wait to see what these Eastern European slavs have prepared for us.
To conclude, going online to shop for clothes doesn’t have to be a strain. There are lots of unknown streetwear brands that rely on the Internet to market themselves and that should not be an issue at all. Everybody has the freedom of self-expression and not everyone is supposed to comply with the trends. After all, buying a piece from the abovementioned brands can come out one of the most unique clothes we have ever worn. ffffffff
