Highsnobiety—the bonafide bible of streetstyle—has just released their first ever book, titled The Incomplete Highsnobiety Guide to Street Fashion and Culture. Focusing on the international, youth-driven movements and musical subcultures that have permeated the realm of menswear, the book tells the story of how underground streetstyle managed to swim upstream into the veins of high fashion and couture. 

Along with editorial shots of some of streetwear’s biggest celebrity stars like Jaden Smith and A$AP Rocky, the book also includes an interview with Nike’s CEO, Mark Parker, on how the Internet has helped sneaker culture explode. Don’t forget about the legacies of tastemakers/designers Kanye West, Virgil Abloh, and Pharrell Williams too, rounding out this star-studded art book. Additionally, brands that Highsnobiety has been following since the beginning, like Supreme and COMME des GARÇONS, have special mini-histories featured as well.
