Just two weeks ago, Chicago's very own Chief Keef performed at our party for the launch of Highsnobiety's Spring/Summer 18 issue, featuring Lil Miquela and the late Fredo Santana on the cover. The party was co-hosted with DC shoes and FTP (FUCKTHEPOPULATION) and took place at New York City's China Chalet.
Season: Fall 2018 Key Pieces: The blue sweater emblazoned with "Watch your back!" is definitely going to get you noticed, as is the bright orange "FTP" jacket. Release Date: November 24, 12pm PST Editor's Notes: The collection as a whole is eclectically eye-catching - how can it not be with Dennis Rodman modeling it?
Highsnobiety Issue 16 will explore the theme of "Awakening." In a post-"fake news" world, where influencers-and wannabe influencers-curate their lives to appeal to Instagram's almighty algorithm, Lil Miquela jolts us from our dead-eyed scroll and gives us a one-way ticket to the uncanny valley.
If graphic T-shirts are the heart of streetwear, then collaborations have to be the brain. With the right brands working together, collections are sold out in minutes, lines wrap around several blocks, and, sometimes, there are police officers in riot gear.
