A mini list of NBGA’s fave streetwear documentaries

In the explorative streetwear documentary Built to Fail, Russel Simmons defines this term–streetwear–as something which young innovative people wear (and by extension make and do) in order to break the mould. 

Streetwear (and art) can thus be seen as the physical manifestation of a particular cultural phenomena which seeks to locate and then transform the mainstream ideologically stylistically. Streetwear becomes the symbolic representation that defines a particular epoch in urban culture. As the old becomes #vintage, we can look to past counter-culture movements in order to gain inspiration for the next stylistic pattern in culture. Whether you are inspired by hip hop, punk, or club kids, NBGA’s got you covered with 5 of our must watch streetwear/urban culture documentaries from the late 90’s and early 00’s–one of the most casually stylish eras of them all.
