British people are just now becoming scene and it’s so funny
I’m never getting over how Britain is consistently 5-10 years behind the US in fashion trends like remember 2007 shows featuring bell bottom jeans and crop tops and 90s hair
remember Rose Tyler
I’m so confused by this - scene stuff has been around in the UK since I was like 14 - ie: like, 2006? No one over here thinks scene kids are a new thing, they’re like mid-noughties throwbacks.
And for people suggesting that style reaches us later because it originates in poorer urban neighbourhoors (ie: in US cities) and then filters outwards so obviously we get it last - you do know there are ‘poor urban neighbourhoods’ in the UK right? I know all the culture that gets exported shows stupid Downton Abbey style stuff (because that’s the sort of UK culture that is marketable in the US) but we’re not all upper middle class suburbanites. London and other UK cities are centres of style and music including streetwear, punk and anything else.
