Location: SoleDXB, Dubai
Key Looks: Yasiin Bey (FKA Mos Def) looks sublime in the iridescent jacket and turquoise jewellery. There’s also a girl in slide #17 using a water bottle as a backpack and therefore nailing two of 2018’s biggest trends in one, transparent materials and staying well-hydrated. The safety pin jeans look problematic though.
Editor’s Notes: Located in Dubai’s d3 district, Sole welcomed in some big guests from the streetwear-adjacent world of hip hop including Dev Hynes, Yasiin Bey, Nas and a surprise performance from A$AP Rocky. As an official media partner for the event, Highsnobiety screened the premiere of our new documentary about South African sneakerhead culture, Just Dala as well as hosting our own booth which you can check out below.
Meanwhile, our photographer on the ground Eva Al Desnudo shot some of the best looks at the event including silvery reflective jackets, mesh tops layered with neon sportswear, and heavy metal chains.
