Highsnobiety: art, fashion, life
The editors think it’s their best issue so far: Highsnobiety Magazine no 8 is out.
The intersection of fashion and technology is the guiding theme of the new Highsnobiety Magazine, a topic that may seem quite surface at first, but it results into an exciting issue. One of the stars of this issue: designer Aitor Throup, who has become synonymous with technology and functionality in clothing, especially in the menswear market. In light of this, the Argentinian-English designer shot a selfie for one of our two covers. Also highlighted the collaboration between two lifestyle icons: Nike and Riccardo Tisci – creative director of Givenchy. Not many designers in recent years have managed to leave as strong a footprint in fashion as Tisci has with Givenchy. In Tisci’s own words, “I brought couture to the streets, like I’m bringing couture to Nike.”
Also in this issue: an illustrated Paris fashion spread by Uli Knörzer; a look at musicians DâM FunK and DENA for the new Carhartt WIP Spring/Summer 2014 collection; American hip-hop artist Future styled by Elizabeth Birkett-Gibbs; waterproof fabrics, created by Valor; a detailed look at wearable technology, and the e-commerce revolution in China.
Highsnobiety seeks to educate the reader on the past, present, and future of well-designed technology and production, with a strong portfolio of original photography and words. In music, fashion, footwear, lifestyle, or art and design.
