Designer High/Low Collaboratiobs On the Rise

Fab Flash: High/Low Designer Collaborations at an All-Time High

During dismal economic times, designer collaborations are the way to go. “We’re definitely going to see a lot more of these high-low marriages,” said Valerie Steele, of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. “People are going to want a lot of fashion for their buck.” With that said, now is the time to nab a creation from your favorite high-end designer for a fraction of the price.

For example, J Brand has teamed up with Hussein Chalayan to create an exclusive denim line. “The opportunity to work with Hussein brings both brands to another level,” said Suzy Crippen, of J Brand. “It is all about business. The business of making something beautiful, a collector’s item you can afford, like a cheap Picasso.” Affordable designer goodies? That's always been the Fab way to go . . .

For a list of upcoming designer collaborations,


  • Comme des Garçons for Tretorn and Converse
  • Rick Owens for Eastpak
  • Bernhard Willhelm for Mykita Sunglasses
  • Y for Dr. Martens
  • Salvatore Ferragamo for Yohji Yamamoto
  • Karl Lagerfeld for Rubt Helmets
  • Hussein Chalayan for J Brand
  • Jil Sander for Uniqlo
  • Zara for MTV

It's just not the same thing. What you get is a name without the special quality or the classic appeal.
