Here’s What Went Down at Our Amsterdam Opening Party
Last sunny Thursday we took over Amsterdam’s well-known dance hotspot, Garage Noord, to celebrate the opening of our new office in the Dutch capital — and it truly was one for the books.
In collaboration with Gorillas, Bud, and Patta, we decked out the two-story, multi-room venue with neon symbols and logos, a special drinks and food menu (including a limited edition HS x Bud x Gorillas beer bottle), and of course, a curated line-up of some of the city’s best musical talent.
With the venue hitting capacity in a couple of hours, it was clear that word had spread fast and that the cross-collaboration across different industries had everyone keen to join in on the fun. Partly indoors and outdoors, Garage Noord is known for its prime location, its creative audience, and for hosting some of Amsterdam’s most exciting events, so it was the perfect place to welcome team Highsnobiety to the city.
Dainty SS got the night started, followed by Tida Kamara shortly after who played some seriously vibey crowdpleasers — not to mention the moshpit rap moment that had everyone downstairs jumping in unison. From RnB and hip-hop to live rap performances and a closing set from our very own Highsnobiety Soundsystem, the night had everyone on their feet.
To add to the excitement, we dropped exclusive Highsnobiety T-shirts with the famous Dutch tulip printed on the back because what’s a collaborative party without a bit of merch? The shirts were illuminated and hung inside empty transparent Gorillas fridges and are available now on the Gorillas app specifically in Amsterdam.

Under the Radar: A Personal Note 73 Reinvents the Classics
Our Under the Radar series is made in collaboration with SSENSE. Each month, we shine the light on a new, burgeoning talent that you can shop at the retailer. Encompassing all sides of the contemporary style spectrum, this series acts as a measure of where luxury fashion is headed in the coming years.
The brainchild of the people behind the Chinese label JNBY (Just Naturally Be Yourself) A Personal Note 73 was founded in 2019. Using the mind of Andrea Pompilio, too, who has previously held design posts at Prada, Calvin Klein, and Saint Laurent, A Personal Note 73 has officially only been alive for 3 years, but it’s backed by a wealth of experience.
And really, you can tell. Anyone who’s ever tried creating any garment will tell you how hard it is. That’s why most fledgling labels opt for graphic tees or tote bags to begin with. A Personal Note 73 looks to reinvent menswear staples right out the door and if that’s not a sign of previous experience then nothing is.
From perfectly executed casual blazers cut from hard-wearing cotton canvas to acid-dyed trousers with immaculately tailored flared silhouettes, the A Personal Note 73 collection is an ode to the classics while also updating them for a bold new generation.
Shop the best of A Personal Note 73 below.
This pair of cord trousers is the perfect place to begin your love affair with the brand as it embodies the approach. Cord trousers are a staple, but cord cutoffs layered over cotton pants are certainly not.
Cut from soft, lightweight wool, this pair of pants nods to a history of tailoring in menswear. A slight flare to the leg brings something fresh to the table.
Two large exterior pockets detail this pair of bold denim shorts which feature an intriguing wash, adding texture to the orange backdrop.
Sweater vests have been all the rage recently and we feel that we’ve had our fill of them. Or we did, until we saw this ultra-oversized, braided iteration.
This pair of acid-washed flares is a definite highlight of the collection. The blue-green base color melds perfectly with the lighter acid blots.
Cut from a fabric that would traditionally have been seen in refined tailoring, this pair of athletic-cut shorts is an oxymoron.
More sweater vest action. This time it’s a bit more classic but the multicolored stripe finish injects signature character nonetheless.
This blazer might be our favorite part of the collection. Made from the kind of canvas you’d expect to find your workwear pieces built from, it’s the perfect step for those looking to upgrade their wardrobes without losing their contemporary edge.
This classic white dress shirt is made much more versatile and informal by a sketched border to the hems.
We wanted to end on an item that sums up how we feel about A Personal Note 73. This is definitely a brand to keep tabs on.

Kiko Kostadinov’s Womenswear Is Colorful From Head to Toe
More color to the people!
Kiko Kostadinov‘s Spring/Summer 2022 Womenswear campaign is fun and eclectic, and just what we need.
The collection has paired Y2K-inspired silhouettes such as cropped cardigans and miniskirts with ’70s-inspired patterns and colors, creating the perfect blend of old and new.
The tie-dye-inspired prints are also reflected in the models’ hair, which has been dyed in a striped pattern that is reminding me of the hair extensions we all wore back in the day. Fortunately, these look much cooler, and they might even inspire my own next haircut.
Designed by Laura and Deanna Fanning, the collection also features a handful of bags including the Twisted Shopper bag in a summer-appropriate yellow hue. The Trivia bag has also gotten seasonal upgrades, and the collection also features plenty of new statement eyewear.
Lastly, we’ve got the Coral Sandal, which is a hybrid between a sandal and a flip-flop, and features a ball detail between the toe. It may sound weird when being described, but trust me, they look pretty sick.
The campaign was shot and styled by Gadir Rajab, at Half Moon Bay, and captures the collection’s underlying beachy feel.
You can shop the pieces online at the Kiko Kostadinov website.
