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.

Interview with MOB Designer Leah McSweeney!!

16 July 2008, 20.19 | Posted in Design, Fashion | No comments »

HighSnobette has always been a major booster of M.O.B./MTTM and its head designer Leah McSweeney. The belief has always been that her talent, her vision AND her force of personalilty are unmatched when it comes all that’s up and coming in women’s fashion. And after spotting the images from Bread & Butter of her first cut and sewn line, we knew it was time for a catch-up chat.

At Leah’s studio/home, where three employees (another two who arrived after we wrapped things up) were hard at work, we talked about her near-term plans to make the business official with a move to an office in the Empire State Building, as well as the stresses of expanding M.O.B in a big way while also starting a family (and how much it sucks how women always get asked questions about their babies but men never do!) A LOT of what we talked about has to stay off the record (sorry!), but as far as her plans with shoes go, I am allowed to say that if you liked her Collette/Reebok collabo, there are even bigger shoe things in the works that are even more draw-dropping.

MOB1 Interview with MOB Designer Leah McSweeney!!

^^A sneak peek at Fall/Holiday, which includes denim, leggings, outerwear, crewnecks, fiited caps, bags and jewelry. Leah says so far she likes the crew necks most of all.

HS: You’re moving your business to the Empire State Building. Why?

Leah: It’s time to get real deal. I’ve gone from working out of my Grandmother’s apartment that I got evicted from to working from my own apartment and it’s time to move on and take things to the next level.

HS: Bread & Butter was your first trade show. What’d you think?

Leah: It was great. We thought we’d have to educate people on the brand in Europe, but there was more recognition than we expected. But I’m not a trade show person so I was bored. And it was weird to have people touching my things.

HS: When does the collection ship and who gets it?

Leah: We deliver fall September 1st, and we’ll work with the same kind of good stores that we’ve always worked with.

HS: How was it putting together your first cut and sewn collection?

Leah: The designing part is fun, but the production part is not fun. That part was really fucking hard. And stressful.

^^Another angle on the collection.

And for those of you who were waiting to find out who the bountiful boobs belonged to from our "Guess the Celeb Rack" post earlier in the day(drum roll please)…..

20Ltd and the True concept of exclusivity…

16 July 2008, 19.51 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

img 2 20Ltd and the True concept of exclusivity...

20LtD a concept we featured a while back, reflect the real concept of an exclusive product.The designer/brand is chosen to produce an item of  20 editions whose sale is exclusive to the 20ltd clients.

In the case Of the Christian Louboutin"Turquoise silk and Antique lace mouche Zeppa the edition went to 35 pairs where there are currently only 3 left!

In the Streetwear world  and sneaker world  the concept of "exclusivity had been played with and abused…And sometimes hides just an inability by smaller brands to produce mass quantities.Leave it to the luxury world  to fully illustrate what "you can’t get those" really means.Athough I would take it further and request that my name be embroidered somewhere too…don’t you agree?
