My interest in fashion and street style stems back to my childhood walking the streets of East London and the West End. As an observer of what people wear and how clothes hang on the body I am constantly looking at the language of style. Through my work in schools and Education, I work with young people who are constantly interchanging and exploring their style.
Bucket Hood-rat is a drawing of a bare-chested youth gazing into his phone and he is sporting a green Nike bucket hat. This hat has been around many years and has it roots in popular culture. In the 1960s, it was often worn by members of the Mod subculture. The modern bucket hat is derived from a tropical hat made from olive drab cotton that was issued to the US Army during the Vietnam War. These lightweight hats became popular among civilians for use in sports such as fishing, and as sun protection.
