In the second of our Global Street Style documentaries, i-D crosses the border into Scotland to meet the young people carving out Glasgow's underground scene. Discontent with the current political climate, they are artfully rebelling, reclaiming the city and throwing illegal after-hours parties in office blocks, warehouses and abandoned spaces. We meet candyfloss-coiffed Mobo, the creator of a police-targeted after-hours party called Incognito, to discover the origins of the night, join a group of forward-thinking students at the Glasgow School of Art, and hang out with activist-skateboarder Fletch. In this love letter to inner-city Scottish misfits, we discover more about the ever-changing Glasgow skyline, and the ripple effects of regeneration on Glaswegian youth culture.
