    Changing Walls

    Changing Walls

    On this talk, we focus on the idea of changing walls. What used to be an illegal profession, graffiti art, is now a highly lucrative industry being translated into sneakers, prints, nightclubs, hotels, merchandise and more. This industry heavily impacts the hemisphere of streetwear and the creative industry. Our moderator, Sky Gellatly, CEO/Co-founder of ICNCLST, speaks to some of the greatest graffiti artists of our time — Stash, Futura, Andre, Steve Powers Espo and Crash

    Art of Collaboration

    Art of Collaboration

    One of the most anticipated chats of HYPEFEST, jeffstaple sat down with a host of the industry’s most in-demand creatives to break down the science of collaborations. Matthew M. Williams of ALYX, Errolson Hugh from ACRONYM, Hiroshi Fujiwara of fragment design, John Elliott and Nigel Sylvester all took part in the sprawling, hour-long discourse.  Topics ranged from Elliott underlining the storytelling aspect of collaboration, while Fujiwara discussed the birth of his HTM line with Nike. In fact, all of the participants have collaborated with Nike, resulting in a series of references to their individual time spent with the Swoosh.  Later, Hugh broke down what makes a good collaboration, describing it as “Two people, who are good at doing what they do, [make] some new thing that they couldn’t do without each other.” By the end, the panelists agree that there are too many collaborations in the industry, perhaps even too much product. “I think it’s our job to create product that really means something,” said Williams. “It kinda should deserve to be in existence and collaborations should check that same box.”

    Reinventing the Resell

    Reinventing the Resell

    This year’s inaugural HYPEFEST was filled with an assortment of exclusive launches, live performances and gripping discussions. The latter of which included a HYPETALKS session that focused on the streetwear industry’s love/hate relationship with reselling. Hosted by jeffstaple, the panel welcomed the likes of StockX’s Josh Luber, Arun Gupta of Grailed, Unique Hype’s OG Ma and Leo Rodriguez representing adidas.  Topics like accessibility and acceptance led the dialogue as the group examines how the secondary market for sneakers transitioned from something corporate figures wouldn’t even acknowledge, to a billion-dollar industry that everyone wants a piece of. The collective also talked about the art of supply and demand — using Supreme a case study – and how it can effect resell shops. Lastly, the panelists closed out the exchange with some questions from the audience.
