Highsnobiety recently teamed up with New York-based streetwear brand aNYthing on a collection of goods done to honor the youth of cities like Paris, Berlin and New York. As fans of La Haine, both the clothing and accompanying lookbook reflect the film’s gritty black-and-white aesthetic along with the aspirations of the film’s central characters. The collection’s slogan, “The City is Ours,” adorn each piece, referencing a scene in La Haine where a poster reads “Le Monde et a Vous” with the “V” crossed out and replaced with an “N.” Thus, “The City is Yours” becoming “The City is Ours.”
Worn by young Parisians in the French capital, the collection consists of a hoodie, crewneck, tee and snapback, each of which is available in either black or grey.
The collection will be available in the coming days at aNYthing’s online store, Storm Copenhagen, Civilist Berlin, Starcow Paris, Caliroots, BSTN, Arnold’s and Highsnobiety’s own online store. In celebration of the collection’s launch, a party will be hosted in Berlin on May 10 featuring the DJ talents of Marcelo Burlon, Michael S. Baltra, Lee Stuart and BassGang.
