How a former One Direction singer helped drive Highsnobiety’s audience

Streetwear enthusiasts may do a doubletake when they see former One Direction star Zayn Malik on one of four covers of Highsnobiety’s latest issue, but the move has more than paid off for the magazine in terms of talking to new audiences.

On his cover of the September issue of the magazine’s cover story, Malik is dressed in Gucci, Givenchy, Christopher Kane, and Dior Homme. The story is spread across eight pages, with full page photographs. On Highsnobiety’s website, the same article appears with more photographs and an artsy one-minute video, “Going behind the scenes of Issue 13 with Zayn Malik,” which can also be found on Facebook and Instagram.
