MOBComplex 540x348 MOB & Hellz Noted In Top 50 Streetwear Brands List

Given that the world of streetwear is the ultimate hostile work environment for women, we’re loving that Married to the Mob (No. 17) and Hellz (No. 20) were listed by The Hundreds’ designer, Bobby Hundreds, in his “The 50 Greatest Streetwear Brands Of All Time” list, compiled for Complex.

Here’s what the article said about MTTM:

Let’s give it up for Married to the Mob, because they were the first true women’s streetwear brand and are still carrying the torch for the ladies. It’s a pretty monumental task considering the Boys Only nature of streetwear, but founder Leah McSweeney has accomplished more with MTTM than most male streetwear labels have in their entire career.

And Hellz:

As far as design goes, Hellz wins first place in the niche women’s streetwear department. Under the auspices of creator Lanie B., the brand follows a contemporary design trajectory, interjecting a street element around her edgy female couture. It’s a little bit punk, a little bit girly, and a whole lotta style—so much so that Hellz truly stands alone in its category. You know what? I take it back. Hellz isn’t just the best-designed women’s streetwear line, it’s one of the best-designed streetwear lines period.

And because of the forementioned anti-female tendencies, we’re not at all shocked–though totally bummed–that Claw Money was left off the list. Her Claw logo is legendary and her credentials are airtight so not sure how that is even possible…..No matter, we see you woman and 100 percent recognize.
