HIGHSNOBIETY MAGAZINE ISSUE #18: SPRING/SUMMER 2019
- Lucien Clarke cover story
Issue #18 "THE DISRUPTION ISSUE":
This issue is dedicated to everyone breaking the old systems and building anew. To a generation redefining the way we express ourselves, creating new markets and learning how to do better for the future. Not only from a fashion perspective. From all perspectives.
As we hurtle through 2019, it's becoming clear that “the culture” we cover has flattened. The lines between high and low are completely blurred. Streetwear is in the wardrobe’s of old money consumers while the masses are seemingly more luxury literate and fashion-obsessed than ever. It feels we’ve reached peak bubble up and maximum trickle-down, and you already know exactly what that looks like. Supreme x LV felt like the pinnacle. Then came Dior and KAWS, Polo and PALACE. Drip, drip, drop. What was unthinkable a decade ago is now reality.
Further exploring the theme of disruption we’ll hone in on sustainability in fashion, both intentional and unintentional, highlighting those deconstructing and reconstructing, those creating new pieces from leftovers, as well as designers and brands who are side-stepping fast fashion to focus on the impact consumption has on our planet.
Extras in this issue include an original zine by Lucien Clarke, a metallic UNKLE sticker sheet featuring work by Futura, Giovanni Estevez and 3D (of Massive Attack), and a SKOLOCT sticker sheet by Tsuyoshi Nakano.
