Put Aside Comparisons: KidSuper Has Carved His Own Path at Louis Vuitton
"It's inevitable that anyone following in the footsteps of giants will be compared to the scale of their forebear's impact. It's why nepo babies are such a hot topic and why everyone's eager to know who'll succeed high-profile creative directors of luxury houses. Tall order for KidSuper founder Colm Dillane, who was given the opportunity of a lifetime when he was selected to be guest creative director of Louis Vuitton's Fall/Winter 2023 menswear collection."
Will Schiaparelli's Animal Heads Define the Post-Balenciaga-Scandal Era
"In the wake of 2022's Balenciaga scandal, one figures that fashion brands are currently walking on eggshells. As it revealed, after all, all it takes is a single controversy to turn the world's hottest brand upside-down."
Our Legacy's Jeans Might Just Be the Best in the Game
"Everyone's got their favorite score of denim. Some spend years looking long and hard, high and low, to find the perfect pair of jeans. Whether that means breaking in some raws over months to achieve the perfect wash or playing around with various fits to achieve a fine-tuned look, it's a labor of love."
Haider Ackermann's Couture Debut Is a Love Letter to Jean Paul Gaultier
"As I sit down with Haider Ackermann to discuss his upcoming guest collection for Jean Paul Gaultier at Paris Couture Week, he admits he’s a little nervous. His nerves, of course, aren’t about his impending Highsnobiety interview (naturally), but instead how the esteemed Gaultier will receive his collection."
The Weird, Wild, and Wonderful of Nike ISPA
"Nike HQ plays host to many a memorable sneaker silhouette. The Air Max family – VaporMax, AM95, AM90, AM1 – TNs, Shox, a host of Air Jordans, and plenty more. Amongst the Swoosh's extensive archive of creations, there's plenty to write home and rave about. As the center point of its most innovative and divisive designs, none are more deserving of attention than the Nike ISPA lineup."
Nike Moves to Sue BAPE for Trademark Infringement on Several Sneakers
"In a turn of events that feels like a long time coming, Nike officially moves to sue BAPE over trademark infringement pertaining to several of the brand's most iconic sneaker styles, including the Air Force 1, Air Jordan 1, and more."
