The Jerk Movement is a dance, fashion, music culture routed in entrepreneurship.
Jerk culture began in Los Angeles late 2008 as a response to southern California youth rejection of gang violence. via hedislimane.com
Celebrated fashion figure and photographer Hedi Slimane - perhaps best known for transforming the male silhouette with ultra-slim-fitting clothes during his reign as the designer at Dior Homme - loves the jerk look. The style incorporates hair streaked Kool-Aid colors, bleached flattops and afro-hawks, chromatic tees and thick-soles skateboard shoes. But most importante, jerk kids rock skinny jeans-they are now the official garment of the movement. via Latimesmagazine
