The 11th issue of Highsnobiety Magazine is here, marking the second piece in a two-part print celebration of our 10-year anniversary. In part 1, Issue 10, we showcased the youth and young creators who are making an impact on our culture in 2015. In part 2 we examinate longevity and the increasingly difficult feat of achieving it in a world that has become ever more focused on the “now.”
With eight cover stories (for a total of 10 covers this year) we’re highlighting a range of key creators from across various disciplines. The iconic works of artists Futura and Takashi Murakami have been mainstays of our web content throughout the last decade and count our first two covers, while prolific Japanese designer NIGO fronts our third. The look and sound of Harlem-based hip-hop collective A$AP Mob have been among the most influential in recent years, and their two most prominent members, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg, each star individually on another two covers.
Perhaps a bit more low-key than the above, but living legends and important creators nonetheless, Academy Award-winning producer Giorgio Moroder and skater-cum-artist Mark “The Gonz” Gonzales make up covers six and seven. Finally, for the eighth cover, we created a KITH exclusive edition that coincides with our forthcoming Highsnobiety 10th anniversary PUMA collaboration designed by Ronnie Fieg.
In addition, this issue explores numerous other stories of continuance, including the journey of OG Stussy Tribe member Alex Turnbull, the 30thanniversary of Jim Philips’s iconic Santa Cruz Screaming Hand, and the history of tailoring through the lens of Patrick Grant’s E. Tautz label. Others, such as fashion designer Nigel Cabourn (who founded his eponymous label 45 years ago) and Editor Andrew Richardson (of Richardson magazine) talk about their enduring output. And, at 260 pages in length, there’s much more.
