Weekly Outfit cover Weekly Outfit: Quirky
Watching our favorite fashion editors walking from fashion week to fashion week is always good to get some new and fresh inspiration of what to shop for in the upcoming season. The Spring/Summer collections are already making their way into the shops and we are on the edge of our seats, eager to snap them up. Colors, Patterns and even better – a mix of both are probably the easiest and least revealing way to do this. This Friday we dedicate our Weekly Outfit to fashion editor and style icon, Natasha Goldenberg. With her quirky look, that we spotted at NYFW, she brings light and warmth into your wardrobe.

Check out our selection of Natasha Goldenberg-inspired look after the jump.

DI1301GA14 wo 21 540x409 P.A.M x Diemme Spring 2013 Preview

Following on from a successful AW12 collaboration with internationally renowned cult label P.A.M (Perks and Mini) which sees the Roccia Lifted Boot in three luxurious autumnal colourways and the Bonito Glitter Wings Desert Boot in black, gold and silver allover glitter we bring you an exclusive preview of Diemme’s first ever committed women’s collection for Spring Summer ’13.

The newly devoted women’s styles immediately seem more visual in terms of colour and design than past men’s styles that have been admired by women yearning for bigger feet. The four new Spring  styles include slip-on sneakers and hunting boots that have been readapted for city use featuring leopard print and pony skin leather. All styles are made at the Calzaturificio Diemme factory in Montebelluna, Italy utilizing 20 years of experience producing for brands including Maison Martin Margiela and Chanel, not to mention cult Japanese brands such as Nonnative and Bedwin & The Heartbreakers.

All elements of the footwear from design to suppliers to production, are committed to making a product of the highest quality and that is certainly evident in this first look.

The P.A.M x Diemme collaboration look book and the Spring ’13 preview can be seen on the next page.- G.W.

HighSnobette Best Of 2012

01 January 2013, 03.28 | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 comments »

QueenoftheJungleMelodyEhsanijpg HighSnobette Best Of 2012

What we have always loved about fashion is it’s potential to bring joy. We as HighSnobette editors feel so lucky to not only have witnessed many of these special moments but to also have come to know and watch grow many of the artists and designers behind some of our favorite projects. Below in no particular order we share what we regard as some of the best, joy-bringing efforts of 2012:

Designer Melody Ehsani’s star has been on the rise for quite some time now, but her “Queen of the Jungle” necklace (above) in many ways stamped her official arrival. We lost count of the stylish celebrities spotted in this vivacious fun piece.

Leah McSweeney has always been a force of personality. She literally is the MTTM brand, as backed by an intensely loyal supporting staff + fan base. Like many young brands the label went through its stumbles when investors pulled out, but the tenacious McSweeney was able to hold on to the name and this year the label found its own inimitable stride again, as marked by the brand’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap, which received the blessing of none other mega-style star Rihanna.

See many more “bests” on the next page. And a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you so much for your support in 2012.

Zara Plaid Shirt With Studded Pockets

ZaraStuddedShirt 540x409 Zara Plaid Shirt With Studded Pockets

In a Black Friday sweep of the Soho retailers on Broadway (yep, there was still H&M x Margiela), last week, it appeared Zara had the strongest floorset, doing a great job especially with tops, like this flannel plaid button up with studs on the pockets. Normally clothing looks better on retailers’ etail sites that it does in real life, but in the case of this item the reverse is true. It’s also available in other colors and while I saw a camo version in the store and online last week when I checked just now it appears it’s no longer there…guess I wasn’t the only one who liked it.

H&M x Margiela: The Two Items That Sold Out The Fastest

19 November 2012, 18.40 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, Sneakers, bags | No comments »


Not saying this is a scientific study but at least at the H&M store located in the Columbus Circle mall in Manhattan, the staff uniformly agreed that the red high-top sneakers and the red “Candy Wrapper” clutch (a “re-edition” from the Spring 2010 collection–see the original here) basically blew out and were gone not long after the store opened.

Me personally I hate high-low designer collaborations and feel like they’re good for the low brand but are a long-term terrible for the high brand (I’m waiting for Alber Elbez to one day admit this). All that blah-blah-blah aside, as it happens I was in Manhattan on the day of the launch and decided to check it out. Giant failed snob that I am, I proceeded to buy three items and would have bought more but was just coming off off a budget killing CL sample sale and simply could not.

My sense at the time–and WWD has since confirmed this–was that this collection wasn’t as big  a hit as past collabos. For as much as Kanye and A$AP have made Margiela a household name for the fashion conscious youthful masses, a lot of the cuts were simply too big, boxy or artsy, making them conceptually tough for many to visualize fitting in with their wardrobes.

On a related side note….how hot is the color red lately??
