MTTMSupremeBitchSnapback

First white (sold out), then camo (sold out), now Married to the Mob has offered the “Queen Bee” snapback in ebony. But it in the MTTM shop and we suggest you do not wait because guaranteed it is going to sell out, too. (And yes, that’s the ever gorgeous Sarah giving you the finger in the image above.)

HighSnobette Best Of 2012

QueenoftheJungleMelodyEhsanijpg HighSnobette Best Of 2012

What we have always loved about fashion is it’s potential to bring joy. We as HighSnobette editors feel so lucky to not only have witnessed many of these special moments but to also have come to know and watch grow many of the artists and designers behind some of our favorite projects. Below in no particular order we share what we regard as some of the best, joy-bringing efforts of 2012:

Designer Melody Ehsani’s star has been on the rise for quite some time now, but her “Queen of the Jungle” necklace (above) in many ways stamped her official arrival. We lost count of the stylish celebrities spotted in this vivacious fun piece.

Leah McSweeney has always been a force of personality. She literally is the MTTM brand, as backed by an intensely loyal supporting staff + fan base. Like many young brands the label went through its stumbles when investors pulled out, but the tenacious McSweeney was able to hold on to the name and this year the label found its own inimitable stride again, as marked by the brand’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap, which received the blessing of none other mega-style star Rihanna.

See many more “bests” on the next page. And a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you so much for your support in 2012.

Rihanna ‘Supreme Bitch’ Graphic

24 December 2012, 14.50 | Posted in Hat, celebrity | No comments »

RihannaSupremeBitch 540x520 Rihanna Supreme Bitch Graphic

Let’s see if we can’t connect the dots between all the “Supreme Bitch” references that have been flying around as of late, starting with last week when we posted an image of designer Tanaya Henry wearing MTTM’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap. We also mentioned the same white cap Henry was sporting was originally spotted on Rihanna. You can see all that back story here. Fast forward to this past weekend and it appears a Rihanna fan sent her the above graphic, which she subsequently Tweeted. And as we already reported, the white MTTM “Supreme Bitch” snapback is of course long sold out, but have no fear, the camo version is now available for pre-order here.

On another note, Rihanna as per usual has been Tweeting up a storm while on vacation in Bermuda. See a smoking hot image of her in a swimsuit titled “Your Fave” on the next page–not sure if it’s yet another hidden message to her on-again-off-again paramour, but just observing from very far, I can’t help but think–darned if the love affairs that miss by an inch aren’t the most painful to extract oneself from! You’re like, but we can do this! We’re so close! But nope, that inch may as well be a billion miles. Pure torture. On a positive note, those are indeed the ones you learn the most from, but oh what a painful lesson.

MOB Leggins 6 Leah Mc Sweeney x Cat Marnell MOB Leggins

We have an exclusive preview of Leah McSweeney’s new collection of women’s leggings that evolved from a collaboration between the MOB (Married to the Mob) founder and Vice columnist Cat Marnel. The leggings will be available in three different styles including a peacock model with a full-body pattern and a blck-paneled option as well as Aztec prints in bright colors. Shot by Prince and Jacob of Lovecat magazine, the whole project was more a liason between friends who love and admire each other for what they do than a profit-orientated collaboration.

Q&A: Leah McSweeney Married To The MOB

MOBSarah&Leah

We caught up with designer Leah McSweeney recently to find out the latest developments with her Married to the MOB label. A pioneer on the streetwear scene when she started up MOB seven years ago, the label has had it twists and turns, including the recent conclusion of a partnership with an investor and is getting back to its roots, albeit with a second-act heaping does of wisdom. McSweeney = MOB so it’s no surprise that many of the bumps, bruises and joys experienced by the brand over the past few years found a parallel in the young designer’s own life. Compelling, frank, more than slightly intense, not to mention a bit of a lightening rod, this is one female whose next moves we will always look out for and cheer.

HS: A lot has happened in the past year. Can you catch everyone up on Married to the Mob and what happened to your brand? You had investors and now you are no longer partnered with them.

Leah: Legally I can’t get into details. In the long run, the only thing that matters is I got my company back. I have nothing but gratitude toward my ex-partners, they believed in me but we’re two different animals. They’re amazing at what they do with men’s brands and I will say the three years I had funding, it was the best education on the business. I worked side by side with super smart, successful people, but more importantly I learned how to make a garment, and I learned about fabric, production and design. I started out making tee shirts and I didn’t have any experience. When I went into the partnership I was 25 and on top of the world, thinking, this is the easiest thing getting this brand to blow up. I thought it was the be all end all and it was just the beginning.

In the Q&A continued on the next page, find out aobut MOB’s second act, McSweeney’s road to sobriety, favorite collabos, what she has to say about streetwear, the future of “bitch” in MOB designs, and the start of a new label.
