HVW8 Berlin has unveiled its latest exhibition, “Beirut Youth” by Gogy Esparza and Jey Perie. The multimedia exhibition explores “the universality of youth” while staying rooted in the Lebanese capital.

“We’ve decided to tell our story through the Beirut youth, from the club kids of Hamra to the young men and women growing up in Beirut’s historic Palestinian refugee camp Shatila,” Perie explains.

Across two visits to the Lebanese capital, Perie and Esparza captured the youth of the city. The result is a series of images shot on 35mm film, as well as four short films.

“Beirut Youth” isn’t just a snapshot of the city’s urban youth. The exhibition is also dedicated to raising funds for the Shatila refugee camp, which is the home to thousands of displaced Palestinians, as well as Syrian refugees. The artists have also released a photobook and T-shirt with 50 percent of takings going to the camp, both items are currently only available at HVW8 but an online store is in the works. You can also donate directly to youth services at Shatila here.

“Beirut Youth” is open now and runs until August 3. Head to HVW8 for more information and opening times.

Highsnobiety aims to provide our readers with the latest updates in the sneaker world. However, we cannot verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves.

Leaked product images suggest there is a Chicago-inspired pack of tie-dyed Nike sneakers on its way soon. The pack comprises an Air Force 1 and Air Max 97, both of which pair white base detailing with colorful hits of tie-dye on the upper.

The Chicago connection comes in the form of the city’s skyline stamped on the heel tab of the Air Force 1 and the insole of the Air Max 97. The Air Force 1’s upper is made of canvas, while the Air Max 97 pairs white leather with tie-dyed canvas. Both shoes feature translucent blue outsoles.

So far, no information regarding a concrete release date exists, although we can expect this pack to drop sometime during the summer. Until then, check out both pairs above and below.

Artist & Louis Vuitton Collaborator Alex Israel Reveals Lookbook for New Brand Infrathin

Visit the original post to see all 9 images from this gallery.

Brand: Infrathin

Season: SS19

Key Pieces: The long-sleeved heather gray tee in slide #1 features a fish graphic from Marcel Duchamp’s Poisson Japonais. 

Release Date: Available now

Buy: Infrathin and Dover Street Market

Editor’s Notes: Infrathin was a term coined by influential French American artist Marcel Duchamp in 1915 to describe the immeasurable difference between two “identical” things. For example, the difference between two T-shirts bought at the same store.

Artist and recurring Louis Vuitton collaborator Alex Israel chose the brand name Infrathin because the sentiment evokes the things he loves about life and art in Los Angeles. His new range of made-in-LA tees and sweats includes images of a grinning avocado, a cartoon pelican, a fish, and a wave graphic from Israel’s own work.

KFC Russia Launches Finger Lickin’ Good Limited Edition Bucket Hat

Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery.

In what might rank as one of the most ridiculous collabs ever, KFC Russia has teamed up with Saint Petersburg-based streetwear brand Mam Cupy for an all-too-literal interpretation of the bucket hat.

The campaign video below shows how the limited edition hat turns fashion — and the KFC logo — on its head. “Is it a hat?” the video asks. “Or a bucket?” Both, as it turns out, with the item doubling as a streetwear accessory and a fried chicken-holding bucket.

The statement piece caters to all of those looking to add something finger-lickin’ good to their wardrobes. The design, of course, reinterprets the iconic KFC chicken bucket, with red and white stripes and an upside-down Colonel Sanders logo.

The limited edition KFC x Mam Cupy bucket hat is available for 1,800 rubles (approximately $24) from Mam Cupy.

Key Pieces: The asymmetrical cotton poplin shirt, featuring an all-over red and blue logo print, and the patchwork-constructed jacket with raw edges and white stitching detail.

Release Date: Available for pre-order

Buy: Barneys New York

Editor’s Notes: Under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson (you know, the same guy behind JW Anderson), Loewe has quickly gone from being an outdated Spanish brand to one of the most exciting labels right now, with approval from celebrities such as Pusha-T and A$AP Rocky. At Paris Fashion Week FW19, Loewe unveiled a collection filled with patchwork jackets, shirt dresses, color-blocked shirts, and other stand-out pieces.

If you’ve had your eyes on Loewe’s FW19 offerings ever since its PFW debut, you’re in luck. Most of the brand’s FW19 range is now available for pre-order at luxury retailer Barneys New York. With delivery expected this September, the pieces available range from fashion-forward picks such as the flannel shirt dress and an asymmetrical logo shirt, to less in-your-face offerings, including a striped cashmere sweater sporting a subtle logo embroidery and a pair of all-black pleated pants.

Needless to say, the collection arrives with luxury prices to match, with pieces retailing at between $490 and $2,250 for a high-quality suede jacket. Peep our favorite pieces from Loewe’s FW19 collection below, and click through if you like what you see.
