Nike I.D. Air Max 90: My (Sort of) Design!

09 December 2008, 23.26 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

I am not usually one to brag about free stuff I get because of this blog because first off, I don’t get a lot, and second, I don’t know….maybe cuz it’s fucking tacky to shove the fact that you get free stuff in the faces of those who don’t? Anyway, I’m gonna make an exception this time with these Air Max 90s that I designed at the Nike/M.O.B. I.D. party that Leah McSweeney hosted a couple weeks back. Nike gets a lot of crap, a lot of it deserved, but the truth is, it’s still the king of sneakerworld and its entire Air Max series is a nice reflection of why the Swoosh has boss status.

And truth be told, I also wanted to show them off so I could give props to the person who helped me make them. I once had to design some Nikes as part of a story assignment ages ago and I learned then that it’s not easy! So at this event, I basically let my design assistant, Izzy, lead the way and he did a great job, recommending the bronze (gold is so 2008, people!), the pink stitching and the patterned black backdrop fabric. He even went along with me forcing him to say that mine were the best pair he designed all evening so he’s an all around excellent hombre in my book!

Fafi McSweeney Nike Love

19 November 2008, 20.12 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

Whatever, people, I was a the launch party for Leah’s M.O.B./Nike collabo party last week, too. And yes I took some images. I just happend to be feeling too angry, lazy and annoyed to post them (nothing to do with the party or the collabo, if you know me, you know I Stan all over L. McSweeney and couldn’t be prouder or think of a designer more deserving). Anyway, I’m over my little mood and figured I’d throw up a cute pic of Leah hugging up on her amie, FaFi.

More of the first M.O.B. cut-and-sewn collection is now hitting stores. Just now Cultist sent over some images of M.O.B.’s fresh fall collection, which includes leggings, cropped bomber jackets and tees. Don’t nap, huns, because the stuff you like the most? Everyone else does, too, and before you know it, it’ll be gone, baby, gone.

Women’s Sandals @ Magic

02 September 2008, 21.13 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

I’m really loving where women’s fashion sandals, especially flats, are these days trend-wise. If you think back on the desert were lost in a mere two or three seasons ago when rubber flip-flops dominated and Havainos were a major fashion statement, the choices in comparison now are borderline spectacular, and I have a felling that Spring 2009 promises to be even more creative and fun. While at Magic, I photographed some sandals that I liked. There were so many more that I didn’t get a chance to snap for whatever reason (like the pair of Gucci thongs that didn’t make it ’cause my dumb battery ran out!)

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.

M.O.B. designer Leah McSweeney is at it again, providing her loyalists with fresh, new ways to crack wise on the world. This time it’s a classic profile, made brazen by one of M.O.B.’s most clever tag lines to date: "Men Are the New Women." Jaws will be jibber-jabbing over these!
