HighSnobette Exclusive I Atalanta Weller Interview

Atalanta Weller Portrait by Mark Cocksedge

Atalanta Weller, A Passion For Design.

If there is one thing that can get me excited about fashion, it’s the shoes. Not just any generic, run of the mill shoes, but the kind that make you just want to stare in admiration of their design, craftmanship and innovation.

Born in a small town of Gloucestershire England Atalanta Weller, who is now based in Hoxton, was a logical choice for our first feature as her designs for The House of Holland, and her personal projects, perfectly illustrate a kind of footwear creation that elevates shoe design from functionality into art. HighSnobette believes the name of this relative newcomer to the fashion spotlight will be on every tongue, and on the feet of every fashionable female with a taste for the edgy and uncommon.

haremfront Robin Givhan Mad at Harem Pants

Before & After: take out the shiney fabric and coordinated missing-torso top and not much has changed!

Fashion is the ultimate expression of history repeating itself. As such you’d be heard-pressed to find a fashion show review that doesn’t include a reference to a 20th century decade that the writer believes inspired the collection. In commenting on the current return-to-’80s fashion craze to New York magazine, Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan probably deeply hurt MC hammer when she stated emphatically, “I don’t think the world needs MC Hammer pants ever, ever again.” Ever! And by the way, she aint so high on acid-wash either. I’m with you Robin. Hammer pants should have died with harems; all that extra fabric just make no damn sense. If I want ill-fitting bottoms, I’ll buy a pair of pantyhose one size to small, thanks very much!

stew bradley Hunky NFL Player Interns at Elle Mag

Variety and diversity, especially in fashion, are concepts that always need to be reinforced. The fashion world can sometimes be boringly homogeneous with all the women  and the men being  the same size and wearing whatever the look of the moment is.  The concept of a hunky 6′4″ football player interning at Elle magazine might be shocking to some, but we welcome it. Eye candy and the outlook of an outsider can be quite refreshing!   Meet Stew Bradley the newest intern at Elle magazine. Read his interview via  Inside DVF

opening ceremony Carol Lim & Umberto Leon of Opening Ceremony on Ponystep

When I walked in to Opening Ceremony in Ny a while back, it was like one of those …Finally!! moments.The design of the space was fairly simple and even cozy on so many levels and the apparel/accessories selection made me weak in the knees.The almost rigid modern edge that can often be present in high/modern  fashion retailers was nowhere to be found, and that was so refreshing.Dean Mayo Davies of Ponystep interviewed Carol Lim and Umberto Leon the brains behind Opening Ceremony you can read the whole feature here.
