i-D: This new digital archive of STREET magazine is a timeless lesson in style. “Since 1985, Japanese fashion magazine STREET has published the best global street style on its pages and forged links between the different subcultures and style tribes that govern the trendiest corners of London, Paris, Tokyo and beyond. Three decades later, a lot has changed in the way we capture street style (and smartphones have all but replaced cigarettes) but its founder and Chief Editor Shoichi Aoki, the genius mind behind FRUiTS magazine as well, is still just as committed to documenting these trends. ‘I had noticed that there weren’t enough photographers documenting street style in the world back then,’ Shoichi says of the magazine’s origins. ‘I did not know about Mr. Bill Cunningham at the time, but I knew that there was good street fashion in Paris and London.'”
