NY Times goes urban on us again, this time to uncover the high fashion hoodies which draw their inspiration straight from the street:

The newest companies are reinterpreting the hoodie, introducing variations with brashly vibrant and often menacing imagery: all-over prints with bullet-hole graphics, chain-link fences and basketball netting, guns and roses, cobwebs and flamboyantly irreverent reinterpretations of Vuitton, Chanel or Gucci logos, each a graphically subversive comment on those corporate fashion behemoths.

And this just in: Limited-edition-ness is driving up the demand of must-have items. Good to know.
