With concerts and festivals around the world cancelled and artists struggling to make ends meet, we teamed up with the iconic Newport Jazz Festival for an online charitable musical program: Highsnobiety Jazz TV.
Over the space of three days we're taking the Newport Jazz Festival online with performances from the likes of Virgil Abloh, Kamaal Williams, and many more.
A love letter to creativity; we’re marking the occasion with an exclusive clothing and accessories drop, too. A portion of all proceeds is going to the Newport Festival Musician Relief Fund, which is providing financial relief to musicians experiencing a loss of income as a result of the pandemic.
Jazz has long been an inspiration for thinkers and designers, and fashion has flirted with the genre on more than one occasion. In recent years, collections such as Carhartt’s Spring/Summer 2019 capsule paid tribute to the iconic Fela Kuti, while Stüssy’s All That Jazz suggested the Californian brand's debt to the art.
In honor of Jazz's wide-reaching cultural influence and the artists performing over our virtual festival period, we've curated a virtual merch stand and you can browse it below.
Scroll on for our virtual festival merch stand.

Ashley Henry 'Beautiful Vinyl Hunter'
Ashley Henry's sound is the perfect entry into jazz from a modern standpoint, taking cues from modern and classic hip-hop as well as the archives of soul. Beautiful Vinyl Hunter is a strong statement of intent from the British artist.

William Claxton Jazzlife
Few genres are as interesting to journey into as jazz. The jazz landscape stretches far and wide, and if you're looking to learn a bit more about it, William Claxton's Jazzlife is as good a place to start as any.
Highsnobiety Newport Jazz Cap
Merch should be simple and to-the-point. This basic baseball cap is just that. Embroidered text to the front and sides pops from a jet-black backdrop.
A Tribe Called Quest Jazz We'Ve Got T-Shirt
A Tribe Called Quest is as refreshing to listen to today as it was in the '80s. The group, composed of Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White, brought a new sound to hip-hop which was firmly rooted in jazz style.
