Dover Street Market's tenth anniversary collaboration


Dover Street Market marks its tenth anniversary in New York City with a groundbreaking collaboration between Sky High Farm Workwear and Nike. The 10-piece capsule collection, set to release on December 16, showcases a creative reimagination of Nike classics infused with the distinctive style of renowned artist KAWS.


The KAWS treatment on the Air Force 1


At the heart of the collection is the reimagined Air Force 1, available in white and black, receiving the full KAWS treatment. KAWS explains the design features, including a "printed, dye-cut Swoosh applique" overlaying the original logo, capturing cloud-based imagery used by Sky High Farm. The reuse of existing Nike items aligns with the organization's ethos of acknowledging the world's abundance of creative design.
