With spring officially upon us, we're proud to present the eighth issue of Highsnobiety Magazine. Far and away our best issue to date, we decided that the intersection of fashion and technology would be the guiding theme. Once we started digging, a topic that seemed quite surface at first turned out to be one of the most exciting aspects of fashion today.

With technology and fashion as the working theme, we knew that Aitor Throup had to be a part of the issue. A designer that we have been following for a very long time, Aitor has become synonymous with technology and functionality in clothing, especially in the menswear market. In light of this, the Argentinian-English designer shot a self-portrait of himself for one of our two covers.

As soon as Nike announced the appointment of Riccardo Tisci - creative director of Givenchy - as their latest collaborator, we knew that this partnership needed to be part of this issue. Not many designers in recent years have managed to leave as strong a footprint in our market as Tisci has with Givenchy. In Tisci’s own words, “I brought couture to the streets, like I’m bringing couture to Nike.” In celebration of this unique collaboration, we captured the Italian designer in an intimate photo editorial - an image of which graces our second cover.

On the visual side, we include an illustrated Paris fashion spread by Uli Knörzer; a look at musicians DâM FunK and DENA for the new Carhartt WIP Spring/Summer 2014 collection; American hip-hop artist Future styled by Elizabeth Birkett-Gibbs; and much more. You’ll also find features on waterproof fabrics, the creation of Valor, a detailed look at wearable technology, and the e-commerce revolution in China. Viewed through Highsnobiety’s unique aesthetic-driven approach we aim to educate the reader on the past, present, and future of well-designed technology and production, with a strong portfolio of original photography and words. Be it in music, fashion, footwear, lifestyle, or art and design, Highsnobiety Issue 8 presents a thoughtful, modern take on current technology.

Look for Highsnobiety Issue 8 now at these stockists with more to be announced.
