Renzo Rosso, the Italian industrialist behind Diesel, has acquired a majority stake in the Dutch designer firm Viktor & Rolf with ambitions to build it into one of the “top reference fashion houses of the future.”

Financial terms were not disclosed, but Rosso told WWD he plans to make major investments to bolster the duo’s ready-to-wear business, add licensed products such as eyewear and jewelry, plus open freestanding stores in high-visibility locations.

Hot Male Model

The Ed Hardy/L.A. style aesthetic is totally lost I’m me. Sorry. I’m a New York female and try as I might to keep an open mind, the look baffles me. Still, while Hardy’s looks may leave me cold…..

 Current Elliot is HighSnobette Approved!!!

In the past I have worked for one of the biggest names in denim which had for effect to make me somewhat of a denim geek, from cut and stiching  to durability and style ,It takes alot to Impress me..We won’t even talk about fit!Needless to say it takes alot more then a celebrity following to make a denim brand stand out…

Current Elliot ,designed by Emily Current and Meritt Elliot,gets kudos because they created  a line of denim  that is not necessarily "trendy" but reflects the classic inspiration of  what a pair of jeans should be. …The favorite,most comfortable thing to put on that  is  timeless and sexy…

 A HighSnobette Exclusive: OLORI s/s 09 Preview   !!!!

After Duro Olowu wooed the world with his fantastic colorful and feminine  designs, the fashion world has been waiting for another sensation originating from Africa to take the Fashion world by storm…

 A HighSnobette Exclusive: OLORI s/s 09 Preview   !!!!His name Is Adeleke Sijuwade,a former model from Nigeria… yesterday HighSnobette got to preview his spring 2009 collection of womens wear called OLORI,at Pieces.

OLORI,Princess in Yoruba was born as Adeleke puts it" out of a series of unfortunate incidents" that made him realise that he was meant to dress women" He has been designing a men’s a men’s line for a couple of years now ,but his dresses,handmade in Nigeria keep on selling out  .

"the OLORI woman is you,her and every woman out there ,I am not consumed by a particular shape or type of  woman or a target market  a silhouette….I was inspired by Romance,Life,the beautiful colors of the Caribean and Africa.

Talking to Adeleke and his beautiful sister Ronke,you get the sense that creativity not only runs in the family,but that talent is something you either have  you don’t..Adeleke is entirely self taught..

RihRih in a Yellow Dress (with lots of Accessories–Natch!)

17 July 2008, 17.44 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Music, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

Rihanna performed in Italy this past week and the photogs snapped some shots of her out and about, hitting the stores with her crew. This is no casual day out shopping. Yes, the dress is cute and summery, but check out her perfectly coiffed hair, the tons of accessories (LOVE the necklace), the bangin’ bag, but most of all the wicked shoes, which, okay, they look great, but are clearly designed for flossin’ as opposed to any serious fashion hunting and gathering mission.

^^Why is it that the regular folk who hang with celebs always look snarlier than the talent? Relax, hun, it aint YOU they’re trying to snap.

Lately the fashion world has not been feeling the color black. At all. But here in New York anyway, the darkest color of them all will return with the chilly, autumn breezes just as sure as the leaves will fall from the trees.
