Partnership

Dan Colen × Dover Street Market

Dan Colen and Dover Street Market have teamed up to create a line of clothing and farm goods to be sold through the retail store to support Sky High Farm, founded by Colen in 2011. All proceeds will be donated to the 40-acre farm in upstate New York, which aims to address food security and nutrition by sustainably growing and harvesting fresh produce and raising livestock exclusively for donation to underserved communities. The collection includes vintage-sourced, naturally tie-dyed tees and other apparel, as well as honey, jam, tea, salt, and tomatoes grown and jarred on the farm.

Partnership

Dan Colen × Dover Street Market
Twelve brands create exclusive merchandise to support Sky High Farm

Following their February 2020 partnership, Sky High Farm and Dover Street Market are launching an ambitious yearlong project featuring merchandise collaborations across the industries of fashion, art, film, food, and design. For the first iteration, Sky High Farm founder Dan Colen has selected twelve independently minded brands allied by a shared sense of civic responsibility to create exclusive garments or accessories bearing the farm’s signature artwork—created by Joana Avillez—to be sold online and at Dover Street Market’s New York and Los Angeles locations. Raising both funds and awareness, the collaboration will support Sky High Farm’s commitment to standing up against inequity in our food systems and to providing sustenance, nutrition, healing, and new opportunities for underserved communities.
