You Better Yacht: How to Build Your Look for Boat Season

Experience this story and others in the new issue of Highsnobiety Magazine, available from retailers around the world and our online store. There’s a fine line between dressing like a yacht owner and dressing like a wannabe yacht owner — two entirely different wardrobes easily confused to the untrained eye. The former is often focused more on functionality and purpose-built garments, compared to the latter: a Grand Theft Auto–type character rarely spotted without a champagne bottle in hand and mad-big aviators covering their bloodshot eyes. For us, this season is about finding a balance between the two, a sartorial setup everyone can enjoy. Whether you’re gathering in the galley, hanging on a halyard, or simply soaking up rays on the sundeck, we have you covered, Captain. Jacket - CELINE HOMME BY HEDI SLIMANE — CELINE’s Loose Ave 57 Sky Teddy Jacket is so Hedi Slimane it hurts — but in a good way. Satin, pink and white, with Club Tropicana vibes, it’s a sure-fire banger for sunny days ..

KidSuper & Barnsley FC: The Collab Literally No One Saw Coming

In what is one of the most unforeseen collaborations in recent years, Colm Dillane, the founder of the eccentric menswear label KidSuper, has teamed up with English Football League One club Barnsley to design the kits for its upcoming 2023/24 season. Barnsley FC, PressDillane, who earlier this year co-created a Louis Vuitton collection for Paris Fashion Week Men’s, is the brains behind Brooklyn-based outfit KidSuper, a brand renowned for its wild designs and forward-thinking aesthetics. Now, together with Barnsley and PUMA (the club’s official kit manufacturer), Dillane has created three stand-out kits (home, away, alternative) for the club’s forthcoming 2023/24 League One campaign, a stark contrast from his LV collection earlier this year. “I will design anything to do with soccer teams. My goal is to have a KidSuper team one day and sub myself in,” Dillane told Highsnobiety. “Julie-Anne Quay, Director at Barnsley, reached out [to me about a collaboration] and I was like 100 percent..

Frank Ocean’s Homer Prada Jackets Are Selling For $7,000 USD

Frank Ocean and Prada have been in cahoots for some time now. Ever since the super-elusive artist rocked up at the 2019 Met Gala wearing a low-key, black Prada nylon gabardine anorak jacket, the Italian house and Frank Ocean have been almost inseparable. In September 2021, the Homer founder and Prada even teamed up for a three-piece collaboration comprising an anorak, backpack, and belt bag, a capsule that sold-out across the board in almost no time at all. Justin Reed, Press Justin Reed, PressNow though, thanks to luxury curator Justin Reed, two rare anoraks from the 2021 Homer x Prada collection are once again up for grabs. But, as you've probably already guessed: they don’t come cheap! Reed, the guy who also sold a Frank Ocean-worn multi-colored Prada Nylon Anorak Jacket back in 2019, has listed both pieces on his webstore for $7,000 USD — and that’s not including taxes. The mint green iteration is available in large, while the silver and black number arrives in a small. ..

Emily Ratajkowski’s Favorite Watch Ain’t Your Average Rolex

Emily Ratajkowski is many things — A-list model, author, podcaster, street style staple, saucy selfie master, Pete Davidson Enjoyer — but a watch aficionado? That's a new one, which makes her rare Rolex flex all the more intriguing. No diss intended, by the way; I'm not particularly knowledgeable about watches myself. That being said, I do find the intricacies of timepieces quite compelling, especially when a watch oddity engenders a thoughtful backstory. So, I'd love to know exactly why Emily Ratajkowski's go-to watch is a Rolex Day Date 36mm with a vignette dial. This isn't a new discovery, either, as several collectors have already clocked (ha) Ratajkowski as wearing this very watch for several years now, often when promoting her clothing brand, Inamorata, oddly enough. Old news or not, EmRata watch intrigue was heightened over the last weekend in June, when Ratajkowski was again seen sporting her Rolex, this time with a Miu Miu shoulder bag and typically ef..

First Look: Inside Kanye’s New YEEZY HQ

Kanye "Ye" West's YEEZY brand is going through a period of semi-dysfunction at the moment, as Ye's controversial new CEO and new YEEZY headquarters are getting situated in Los Angeles while Ye visits Japan. In fact, as first-look imagery of two new YEEZY spaces is suddenly revealed, everything YEEZY-related remains in a period of flux. Well, here's what we do know. First, a look at the purported YEEZY workspace set up in Los Angeles' Cornerstone Christian Church church, where Ye reportedly has a couple local seamstresses hand-stitching his new YEEZY clothes. Imagery of the YEEZY workshop — it's too small and weird to be called a factory — reveals racks of white clothes, seemingly nothing but T-shirts and pants. These shots were taken around the same time as the premiere of The Trouble With KanYe, a June 29 BBC documentary that explored the anti-Semitic tirades and white nationalists that Ye began platforming in late 2022. The rumored YEEZY sample garments visib..

Balenciaga’s Latest Invite Pays Homage To Couture Atelier Staff

A Balenciaga show invitation can arrive in many forms nowadays. From smashed iPhones and lost wallets, to the key and branded leather fob for Spring 2024. It's become apparent that no object is out of the question when it comes to a Demna Gvasalia summons. The label's Couture 2023 invitation, though, is certainly more in-keeping with the opulent theme than previous seasons: a golden, Balenciaga-engraved bracelet based inspired by the magnetic wrist pieces typically worn by atelier staff as home for loose pins and needles. "The Balenciaga Couture bracelet directly replicates the magnetic pin holder often worn by couture atelier staff. The functional object has long been used by couturiers, especially during fittings," reads a note accompanying the invitation. "This bracelet is non-magnetic, an homage to the tradition and craft involved in Balenciaga couture," it continues. "It is cast in brass and bronze with a gold finish and engraved on one side with the Balenciaga couture l..

The ‘Barbie’ Movie Isn’t Out Yet, But Its 30-Plus Collabs Are

The Kool-Aid is pink, and everyone is chugging it. Since the first trailer for Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie released last December, Mattel and Warner Bros. have been working overtime, executing a marketing blitz that has flooded our feeds with Margot Robbie's fuchsia press tour 'fits, Ryan Gosling's "Ken"-ergy, Barbie movie poster memes, and a seemingly endless stream of collaborative merchandise collections encouraging movie-goers to live life in plastic (it's fantastic!). To date, over 15 brands looking to capitalize off of Barbie mania have entered licensing agreements with Mattel. There are Barbie-branded Halloween costumes, toothbrushes, roller skates, and cans of lemonade (pink, obviously). Mattel's decision to turn its product into a movie and, in turn, transform the movie into an even more expansive line of products fits nicely into the era of MerchTainment, a phenomenon that Highsnobiety's former editor-in-chief Thom Bettridge identified in 20..

When Is It Time to Put Couture Week on Pause?

Haute Couture Week, the extra-ornamental cousin of Paris Fashion Week, is predicated upon resplendent runway shows artful enough to elicit dreamy introspection. However, Couture Week Fall/Winter 2023, held in Paris from July 3-6, is prompting a different kind of query. Specifically, as France turns out in droves to protest police brutality, one wonders whether Paris really needs a three-day extravaganza dedicated to fancy clothes for the ultra-rich at this very moment. Less than a century ago, couture clothing and luxury clothing were one and the same. Couture houses epitomized luxury, painstakingly producing made-to-measure couture garments for wealthy patrons. Yves Saint Laurent, Cristobal Balenciaga, Elsa Schiaparelli, Paul Poiret, and Jacques Doucet weren’t designers — they were couturiers and they wove wearable fantasies. What’s happening in Paris right now, however, is reality. On June 27, police shot Nahel Merzouk, a a 17-year-old second-generation North African immigrant, in th..

You Can Actually Cop the Nike Go FlyEase on Sale Now

When the Nike Go FlyEase first dropped in February 2021, the sneaker community was rightfully shocked, confused, and immediately obsessed. Nike’s first-ever hands-free sneaker relies on a tensioner that wraps around the midsole to allow the wearer to slide the shoe on and off, making use of a sole unit that splits at the arch. The slip-on mechanism was originally designed to make life easier for those with disabilities, which made it all the more unethical when resellers instantly bought up all sizes and began selling pairs for upwards of $600 on the secondary market. Not only was this another frustrating reminder of the changed face of sneaker culture, but it also meant that buying a pair of Nike Go FlyEase was nigh-on impossible for the first year of its life. Fast-forward to the summer of 2022, though, and things have changed a lot. The Nike Go FlyEase is now readily available at Nike in a handful of colorways. And while the initial hype around the release has dwindled, it makes it ..

Loewe Made the Best Coat of the Season, Let That Sink in

There aren’t many labels in the luxury sphere that have as much fun as Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe. The designer is an expert in bringing playful irreverence to classic forms, readying them for the absurd world that we live in. What’s the point in taking everything seriously? There’s no quicker way to make something fun and boring than to unnecessarily intellectualize it, so we’ll stop with the absurdism here. But, we’re not overstepping the mark by saying that the new Loewe Drain Hole Overcoat is a work of art. Whatever its meaning — if there even is one — this garment is, at its core, just a beautiful thing. The single-breasted overcoat is cut from gloriously heavy wool and features a hidden button placket to round out a traditionally minimal, understated aesthetic. For one side of the coat, that is. The other side is a whole different story. Drain holes like you’d find in the baths and sinks around your house form the eye-catching detailing that defines this coat. Rows of the metallic..

ERL Is Riding The Leather Jacket Wave Like No Other

There’s something about leather jackets that instantly spices up any look. It’s been more than half a century since its popularization, and the motorbike jacket still takes part in everyone's closet. Most of them feature monochromatic colorways for style versatility. However, this ERL Leather Jacket will be the spotlight of any ‘fit. Since its launch in 2018, ERL has brought its Californian aesthetic to our wardrobes. Even the brand’s winter pieces pay tribute to Venice Beach landscapes. For example, for its iconic Sunset Puffer Jacket, Linnetz was inspired by California’s captivating sunsets. ERL's puffer jackets have gained such momentum, that even Bad Bunny wore a piece during his Coachella performance despite the extreme hot weather. You might not be wearing one of those puffy pieces this season, but this leather jacket can be a fun transitional option. This ERL Leather Jacket features ribbed-knit trims to make it more casual and comfortable. A head-turning surf graphic p..
