Boards of the past, present and future

By Loskene - May 29, 2012 at 9:11 am

Hello chaps and chapettes, your friendly admin Loskene here with a little update for you.

In the past couple of days we’ve started restructuring the boards a little, some have been removed, some moved to different categories, and some are going to be added in the future for example fashion.

A new report by trend forecasting firm Trendalytics  outlines the evolution of streetwear from its start as a 1970’s California social movement defined by the laidback surf style of Shawn Stussy, the founder of Stüssy, into a mainstream global category estimated to be valued at $309 billion.

That evolution, Trendalytics said, has been fueled by influencers—be it celebrities, athletes or the masterminds behind hype machine brands like Kith’s Ronnie Fieg and Virgil Abloh—and the prevalence of social media as a branding tool for both brands and individuals.

What’s going to be added? Well we don’t know yet, and that’s where you come in. We’re currently taking suggestions for new trial boards to replace ones that are being shuffled into proper categories, so if you want to have a hand in the future of the site, you’ll want to check out this thread right here.

That has the full details of the board changes, and you can add your own two cents in too if you have a good idea.

That’s all for now, live long and prosper.

Kind regards,
The 420chan staff
