Caught in the Crossfire – Fashion and the Cringification of Skateboarding

Chris Lawton has put together another thought-provoking article for Caught in the Crossfire, this time examining exactly why the appropriation and close examination of aspects of skateboarding culture by the fashion community has come about and exactly why it manages to be so intensely annoying. Chris’ articles are always well researched and a pleasure to read and, with an argument which draws from sources as varied as Vogue’s ‘Skateboard Week’ and Michel Foucault, this is another piece which will perhaps make you look at an aspect of skateboarding’s relationship with other cultural areas.
