These Are The Leading LA Streetwear Brands Taking Over The Fashion Capital

From vintage clothing to futuristic chic, these designer brands are blowing up the streetwear scene online and IRL.

Style

One of the few fashion capitals in the world, Los Angeles has created a streetwear culture unlike any other. Behind the city's laid-back temperament is a scene that is often overlooked and underrated. As each destination has its trademark look, LA is buzzing with creative minds continuing to contribute to its legacy of style and design. Living in this coastal city for nine years, I've discovered it's the acceptance of individual style that leads one to discover their most authentic self.


Using clothing as a form of self-expression, it's inspiring to see designer brands and trends from around LA mixed into an array of daring yet creative looks.

In sunny California, the temperature is always right when it comes to a dope look. Known for comfort and style, the west coast is often portrayed in throwback classics with baggy pants and sneakers or women in cropped tees with spandex. Today, LA-based designers are setting a precedent for their brands while representing the city, continuing to gain recognition around the world. From vintage clothing to futuristic chic, these are the 7 breakthrough designer brands blowing up the streetwear scene online and IRL.
