Highsnobiety has partnered with the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung and the KaDeWe Group on a new capsule collection that celebrates the iconic design school's 100th anniversary. Dropping on the Highsnobiety Shop, September 25 for a limited time only, the capsule pays homage to Bauhaus' century-long legacy, adapting its ideology of embracing alternative perspectives into a range of exclusive garments.
At first glance, the partnership might seem an unlikely pairing. Yet, as you dive into the ethos of the Bauhaus and of streetwear, a synergy arises: Both movements are inspired by breaking traditional ideas, by re-shaping and re-defining how art, architecture, education, society, and tech are considered. Ultimately, they're both about disrupting the status quo.
The collection is built around a selection of streetwear staples designed in-house by Highsnobiety's design team and developed from scratch in Portugal in certified eco- and labor-friendly factories. Each garment reflects the Bauhaus aesthetics — colorways and original artworks can be found on T-shirts, crewnecks, hoodies, long-sleeves, caps, and tote-bags.
“Highsnobiety’s headquarters are in Berlin, a city that has fueled our passion for streetwear since the company’s inception,” said David Fischer, founder, and CEO of Highsnobiety, further explaining the partnership's context. “It was important for us to honor the roots of our company by collaborating with the iconic Bauhaus-Archiv, which holds immense significance for Berlin and for creativity. In all of our collaborations, we aim to work with partners who speak to who we are. Working with Bauhaus-Archiv was a great honor for us.”
The official Highsnobiety x Bauhaus-Archiv collection will drop on the Highsnobiety Shop September 25 and in Berlin's iconic KaDeWe, Europe's second-largest department store. The capsule will also be available to cop in Hamburg's Alsterhaus department store and Munich's Oberpollinger.
