kidrofront Kid Robot at Magic: Fall 2009

Everrrrybody wants to get in the KidRobot booth. There’s something magical about this brand that draws the curious like bees to freshly bloomed flowers. “I just wanna see, I just wanna look,” they all say as they crane their necks to catch a glimpse of what probably looks like a wonderland compared to every other booth in the joint. Kudos to rep Jennifer Getlan who headed them off the pass with great charm and patience, and thanks to her as well for letting us get a peak at the women’s collection, which has taken a step up since its initial launch about a year ago: lots of big graphics and new cuts that set them apart as strictly for the ladies.

Two more tops after the jump.

Sneak Peek: Nau Fall 2009

highsnobette-sneak peek nau f 09

In a  fashion world that seems to be inundated with eco friendly lines that sacrifice fashion for the global economy, Nau is taking it to the absolute sustainable limit while keeping their pieces fresh and fashion forward. Focusing on super performance outerwear, each jacket is made completely out of post consumer waste and is built using a three layer construction without a single stitch. I was completely blown away when I heard that if your current garment  does start to fall apart you can send it back to them and they will recycle it into a new piece just for you. How cool is that??  Nau’s Fall ‘09 line will also feature plenty of other goodies including knit wear and accessories.

Highsnobette-mac sugarsweet

MAC cosmetics has announced their Spring store arrivals and their Sugarsweet collection is delicious. Based entirely on bake shop confections, the color palette consists of mint green, cotton candy blue, peach, and a variety of shades of pink. I highly recommend trying out some of the new lipstick shades with names like Bubbles, Sweet Thing, and Lollipop Loving it’ll be hard to resist licking your lips. Set to drop March 19th.

A little taste of the MAC spring collection “Sugarsweet” after the jump.

The Chanel Segway

Highsnobette- chanel segway

A Chanel Segway?? I’m on the fence as to weather this is really hot or just kinda dorky. Let me know what you all think. The personal transporter comes with quilted hand grips, black leather mudflaps, and it is absolutely dripping in the Chanel logo. Perhaps the most intriguing amenity is the Chanel 2.55 handbag that hangs from the handlebars, so you can look fly while speeding along at a whopping 12 miles an hour. Karl darling, you never cease to amaze me.

Dame Westwood knows no Kanye

dame westwood Dame Westwood knows no Kanye

A perfect example of delusions of grandeur or notoriety that can sometimes overtake  the media and their coverage of  celebrities.  As reported by NYMag  Vivienne Westwood had no clue who Kanye west was, when he greeted her after her runway show.  And to be honest that is perfectly okay. We live in really big world. To assume that the knowledge of a certain celebrity is global is just absurd…

Sometimes when you visit a brand at a tradeshow, your opportunities to photograph stuff that hasn’t already been  featured on every streetwear blog in all the land are nonexistent. For example, at Magic, a lot of designers were showing Fall 2009, but many of them wouldn’t allow images to be taken. Natch, small brands live and die by their creative ideas and have to balance the desire for exposure against the desire not to be knocked off non-stop by you-know-which retailers and brands. That was the case with 80%20, Modern Lovers (though I’m fake-mad at Modern Lovers designer Ellen Nguyen ’cause I saw she let MissCrew photograph her bodysuits. What?) and Gourment. Whadyagonnado?  What you do is photograph the designers, who are fun to look at themselves and as an added bonus, are willing to give you a sneak peak either because they’re wearing the product or standing in front of it!

Stussy x Hellz Bellz "Ladies First!!" Spring 2009 Collection

After seeing several teasers of the collection, the release of the Stussy x Hellz Bellz “Ladies First!!” capsule line is just around the corner. Stussy is well known for their collaborative projects, but usually there was not much for the ladies in the mix – that was until now!

“This ladies-only collaboration features a capsule collection of tees, tops and accessories. Available at Stussy Chapter stores and other premium streetwear retailers on March 7th.”

Check out the Stussy x Hellz Bellz “Ladies First!!” Collection after the jump.
