From the fashion and music brand and talent incubator VFILES comes a style book celebrating the young, diverse street trends influencing the hottest looks and sounds in fashion and music today.
VFILES was started for the kids in the line, the kids at the fashion shows and concerts who are always pushing culture forward. A ubiquitous social media platform at the crossroads of art, design, popular culture, and street savvy, VFILES represents what’s happening on the streets right now. Known for creating one of the buzziest shows of New York Fashion Week, VFILES regularly launches the next big talents in all areas of the music and fashion worlds.
The pages of VFILES: Style, Fashion, Music showcase the most exciting moments from VFILES’s creations and collaborations over the last ten years. The authors look at the young innovators shaping contemporary culture and highlight their influence on some of the biggest names of today. With photos of such style arbiters as Rihanna, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, Solange, and Erykah Badu wearing VFILES designs, this book celebrates all aspects of street culture, from hair and makeup to art, design, and lingo.
A visual feast of street style, along with glamorous runway and editorial images of hip hop celebrities in their distinctive looks, these pages celebrate the intersection between music and fashion. This book embodies the VFILES credo that you can’t have fashion without music or music without fashion. And you can’t have either without the street.
