Is streetwear synonymous with luxury? Why?
From my point of view i think streetwear and luxury are still 2 different things, but when you combine them it becomes a higher end of streetwear or highstreet.
Its like 2 diverse elements, but when combined, it becomes another new abstract concept.
For me as a Fashion Photographer who gets invited to such VIP or exclusive only invites pop-ups/events, I see different kinds of elements on how people dress up. I'm definitely here for the coalition of both streetwear and luxury because it makes people get into the higher end of fashion. Thus, i dont think the community, including me could generalize everything into streetwear and luxury, because there are other belts or areas of it too.
I just feel that high-street does help the fashion community of the youth/everyone to be more accessible to these things so there isnt a big bump into it.
Therefore i do think that both streetwear and luxury are not synonymous.
