STREET FASHION INSPIRED STYLE: THE TEDDY BOYS



THE TEDDY BOY

Why I am choosing this subject ? Well not only their style are still eternal but their look remains pure and high standard, daring and classy looking. It's a trend that I would see myself in.

The Teddy Boys also known as the Teds, have become more popular in the 1950's in Great Britain,
Their fashion sens are commonly described as fancy, edgy, Edwardian, classy, smart suited look and also tailoring style. Also known to revolutionize their own image.

They wore fancy waistcoats, large blazers sometimes, fitted suited trousers or narrow pants = "drainpipes", white shirts and polished shoes.


Their story behind it? Briefly the Teds were seen as gangs or juvenile delinquency . They were very free spirit even though their clothes were showing other wise , but also open minded . Also labelled as trouble makers.

The Teddy' were vandalizing stores and cinemas to show their rage against austerity mesures from society after the World War II.
The teen boys and men revolutionize their look who pretty much became close to the 1960's trendwith the Rock'n'roll era. The hair style was inspired from Rock'n'roll icons, such as Elvis Presley or Johnny Cash

Not to forget that music and fashion couldn't be separated from one another. After a preview of the history let's move on to the nowadays part.

Stylist are still reinforcing this look in photo shoots or runaway shows that still has an impact in our today's society,
