    With the dawn of streetwear, fashion birthed its first modern rebellion. After hippies of the 1960s practically invented the notion of a counterculture, DIY punk, surfwear, hip-hop, and sportswear swept through America’s metropolises in the 1970s and 1980s. It all started in the late 1970s, when surfwear took the reigns on producing localized apparel that was unique to the wearer and their lifestyle.

    On January 1, 2013, Luke O’Donovan was attacked by a group of men at a party because of his sexuality. In an attempt to defend himself from the attack, he stabbed five of them, being stabbed three times himself. Last month, he was sentenced to ten years – two in prison, and eight to be served on probation. In this piece, Luke’s friend details what it’s been like to follow and support the case from the sideline.

    Walking into the Wind

    When we were discussing the theme of this month’s issue, we wanted to entertain a latent conversation. A dialogue that might exist between the horrors we bore witness to this summer and the new opportunity revealed as pop-culture sputters and ejects, leaving behind a vacuum of power and attention. Is what happens on the streets of modern society merely a slurry of sociological phenomena, or is there something more ... archeological about it. Will our streetwear ever be draped over some ethnic mannequin in the halls of a natural history museum's diorama? Will our experiences of PTSD make it into timeless masterpieces of art, sealed up in the Louvre?
