HIGHArt is Highsnobiety's ode to all things artistic. From our “museum store” pop up in Miami, a print magazine, and exclusive content and product with collaborators like Chito, Honey Dijon, Parra, Matt McCormick and more, we’re going deep on the art world. Explore HIGHArt here.
Last week, we opened our very own pop-up in Miami's Design District, dubbed “a museum store without the museum,” right in time for Miami Art Basel and Miami Art Week. The pop-up featured in-store DJ sets, exclusive collabs from our favorite artists and brands, and nightly parties. Basically, it's been giving all of us who couldn't make it to Miami a lot of fomo.
However, now is the time to dry your tears, because limited editions of the in-store collabs have finally dropped online. Curated by Highsnobiety Founder David Fischer alongside cultural mastermind Sarah Andelman of JUST AN IDEA and creative director Jeanne-Salomé Rochat of Novembre Magazine, our HIGHArt drop represents the best in fashion and art right now.
With over 100 unexpected and limited edition art pieces, apparel and more from collaborators like Chito, Honey Dijon, KAWS, Parra, Matt McCormick, Laurie Simmons and more, this is a drop you don't want to miss. Browse all the collaborators and our favorite pieces below.
To celebrate HIGHArt, we put together a small capsule collection with hoodies, crewnecks, tees and caps all bearing the HIGHArt logo.
Merch's influence on fashion hasn't gone anywhere, we already tipped that the hottest thing in merch right now is cultural institutions like cafes or galleries. While we're not a bonafide museum (yet), think of this drop as the ultimate giftshop merch.
Even if you weren't in Miami for the biggest art event of the year, with this drop you basically were. If you know, you know.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include legendary artist Futura in the HIGHArt initiative, as he remains one of the most influential American artists in recent memory. This extensive zine details the life and work of Futura, with excerpts from associates and other authoritative figures ranging from Virgil Abloh to KAWS and beyond.
