Model Ajak Deng & Co.

 Model Ajak Deng & Co.

One of our faves, model Ajak Deng relaxing in her Nike Sky High Dunks with a couple of model friends. Look at dem gorgeous faces.

As relentlessly tough as it’s been for models of color on the runway over the past few years, we see signs the tide is starting to turn. And if clueless mega labels are the last to figure it out then so be it. You reap what you sew.

Highsnobette-Trend Spotting NIKE Sky High Dunks

Wedge sneakers are having a fabulous moment in the spotlight right now. After the phenomenon if the Isabel Marant ‘Bayley’ and the plethora of knockoffs that followed, we gave you a peek at the Nike Sky High Dunk. On our trip to Vegas last week it was clear that the sky high dunk is the next big thing .Blending  the heritage of a true athletic brand, the feminine look of a wedge heel and well positioned price point, we understand why women are getting hooked.Keeping in mind that there are a few women I did not catch in time to snap, see what the deal is on the flip. Including a peek at the latest Liberty Print ( above).

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.

Nike Sky Hi Wedge: New Colors For Holiday

24 December 2012, 13.51 | Posted in Sneakers | 1 comment »


Nike this year launched its Sky Hi Wedge, a high top featuring a hidden wedge. Making a straight fashion item was a bit of a bold move for the sneaker giant who shies away from anything that can’t be marketed as performance-related. Even with a relatively higher price tag, $120, the shoe did well and a lot of the initial launches have sold out completely. Now for holiday there are two new colorways, the cheery red and white shown above, both available at Nordstrom. Cheers!
