Fischer also projects that in three to five years, the Highsnobiety e-commerce platform will make up half of the media company’s total operations and eventually launch a private-label line.

“Ultimately the Highsnobiety commerce model is where we’d be dynamically dropping products over time, sometimes once a week, several a week, where we team up with brands to strategically release product in a content-led model,” he told BoF, defining the online shop as a “true fusion of content and commerce.” - David Fischer for BoF
