Drop

GQ (Australia) - - GQ BRIEF - BY BY­RON HAW ES

If you’ve given up a week­end to queue for a new drop, you’re prob­a­bly aware of the cul­ture, psy­chol­ogy and pol­i­tics that come with the streetwear cir­cus. What was once a niche com­mu­nity of stans (noun: mil­len­nial term for ‘su­per fans’) hunt­ing for grails (noun: streetwear for ‘the-thing-you-want-so-bad-you’d-trade-your-first-born-for-it’) is now a global phe­nom­e­non that runs on a cur­rency of hype – and very in­flated re-sale prices. It’s a whole thing – and it’s fas­ci­nat­ing enough to war­rant its own cof­fee ta­ble book. AP­PROX. $60, OUT NOW; POWERHOUSEBOOKS.COM
