Sky High Farm Workwear and Balenciaga Debut Charitable Collaboration
Sky High Farm, founded by artist Dan Colen, has a stated goal of “improving access to fresh nutritious food for those in need,” and to raise funds that’ll aid that mission Colen has dug into his deep Rolodex of fashion industry connections for charitable partnerships. The latest of these partnerships is with Balenciaga, who has dug into their archives for special denim shirts and jacket to aid Colen and Sky High’s mission by partnering with Sky High Farm Workwear, a brand inspired by the farm that donates its profits to Colen’s mission.
The shirt is presented in black denim while the jacket arrives in white and features a pre-distressed bottom hem. Each features Ryan McGinley’s photography of Sky High Farm’s animals — a pig, rooster or lamb — printed on its back plus an embroidered Sky High Farm Workwear (the farm’s clothing arm) hit on its left chest. Inside each piece is a co-branded Balenciaga/Sky High Farm text hit and a short mission statement directly under the size tag.
This effort with Balenciaga is the fourth collection in Sky High Farm Workwear’s run of charitable collaborations. Assisted by Dover Street Market, the brand worked with an expansive 23-artist lineup in 2021, then joined forces with Comme des Garçons SHIRT and Converse earlier this year.
Expect the Sky High Farm Workwear x Balenciaga collection to touch down exclusively at Dover Street Market’s webstore and retail locations on September 12. Prices range from $550-$850 USD. You can get more info on Sky High Farm Workwear by heading to their website.
