Project MVMNT Introduces Street Hearts

12 February 2013, 11.19 | Posted in Trade Show | 1 comment »

Street Hearts trio

While most streetwear brands shun the term, there is no denying that the sartorial culture of the inner city has a special flavor and place in the fashion world. From athletic themes to punk revival, grunge and everything in between the influence of such brands can be seen all over fashion. To address the growing interest in streetwear, Advanstar has launched Project MVMNT. According to press:

“Project MVMNT is taking an entirely new approach to showcasing youth culture,” says Kenny Mac, show director. “By creating expertly merchandised segments we are supplying brands and buyers with an experience that’s ahead of the curve and filled with resources.

While this is all very cool, our favorite part of this initiative is “Street Hearts,” a space in the show devoted to some of the fiercest in ladies street wear like Lani of Hellz Bellz, Melody Ehsani,  Linda and Tammy of Love Made as well a Coco & Breezy. Stay tuned for our coverage of the show next week!

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.

Puma Sneakers–Including Wedges! Spring 2013

PumaSpring2013 540x404 Puma Sneakers  Including Wedges! Spring 2013

As sneaker afficianados, myself and SGP were excited to visit Puma’s New York showroom yesterday and see what it had in the works for Spring 2013. For all the celebration of sneakers these days, a lot of the focus is Nike, Nike-owned Converse, Adidas and Vans. All three companies do amazing work, but it’s awesome to see a variety of offerings, especially from an athletic shoe house as iconic and legendary as Puma (you know the story of Puma and Adidas being founded by rivaling brothers, correct?) We were delighted to see Puma has plenty to offer including its take on the now booming wedge sneaker trend (see above). The brand is all over the color trend, too, offering sorbet-inspired, color-blocked shoes in a variety of silhouettes, plus some more neutral shades for those of you who want a more grown and sexy looking shoe. Look for most of these to drop in February of next year, though some will hit before Christmas at Puma.

Enjoy many more looks on the next page.
