Burton X M.O.B. Launch Party

10 September 2010, 14.35 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, snowboarding | No comments »

Burton X MOB table setting

For those of you salivating over rumors of Married to the M.O.B.’s demise, put your drool in check because the brand is alive and well and throwing parties celebrating its latest collaboration, this time with outerwear company Burton. We covered this partnership back in August, but the dinner party last night at Macao in SoHo, marks the official press rollout of a collection that includes boards, jackets, pants and hats. The whole crew was there (check out images on the next page of MOB designer, Leah McSweeney’s  hot lil’ brother, Daniel, who is modeling for Red!), the food was excellent and and so was DJ Jasmine Solano. As always, McSweeney has lots planned, including a  fun tee-shirt collabo, plus……a television appearance that is certain to be a howl–stay tuned for details! More images on the next page, included our very own Tim, he of Radcollector fame!

Married to the M.O.B. Fall 2010 Sneak Peek: UPDATE

24 June 2010, 17.45 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, lookbook | 8 comments »

MobFallSneakPeek Married to the M.O.B. Fall 2010 Sneak Peek: UPDATE

Speaking of all things Married to the M.O.B., over at headquarters we get a sneak peek of a top, which is soon-to-be-featured in the brand’s fall lookbook. So far super cute! If you recognize the model, tell!

UPDATE: The model is the multi-talented and sexy Tanaya Henry, whose Lace by Tanaya accessories line we featured not that long ago. Once again, McSweeney comes through with the intriguing model choice. Never predictable that one.

UPDATE No. 2: Our friends over at FashionCopious (a highly recommended read!) posted this image and wondered if anyone knew what the tat says and if it goes all the way around her waist. We contacted Tanaya and this is what she had to say:

“‘Sweet is the sound of a sister’s laughter,” in Russian (I’m part Russian) & have two little sisters. It is only on my back; doesn’t go all the way around. xx, Tanaya

Ask and ye shall receive!

M.O.B. X Lacoste Tees

mtm blk ssv  tee M.O.B. X Lacoste Tees

Because of the success of the M.O.B. X Lacoste lace “Hiromi” sneaker, the two labels decided to team up on some tee shirts.  It’s kind of funny to see those two vastly different labels snuggling up against each other but it’s also what makes this collabo work. The black tee is featured here and the white is on the flip. Both are now on sale at Lacoste boutiques.

Baby-G X Married to the MOB

BabyGXMOB Baby G X Married to the MOB

Here is an ad scan from the June/July issue of Nylon magazine, which speaks to a collabo between watch company Baby-G and Married to the MOB. If you visit ShannonElaine, where we spotted this, you can see another one featuring Baby-G and and HellzBellz (two seperate collabos, mind you, not all three together). I’ve got an email in to M.O.B. designer Leah McSweeney on details…let’s see what she’s willing to give up.

UPDATE: Finally heard from Ms. McSweeney. Neither the watch in the ad featured here or in the Hellz ad are a collaborative effort. Both brands are doing a collabo with Baby-G, but at least in the case of MOB, it won’t hit retail until November 2011.

Married to the Mob Spring 2: ‘Grammercy Gardens’!!

10 March 2010, 00.36 | Posted in Fashion | No comments »

MOB5 Married to the Mob Spring 2: Grammercy Gardens!!

Married to the Mob’s Spring 2 campaign features our favorite smoking hot, boss-lady-in-charge, Leah McSweeney herself, not to mention her always shy and demure lil’ sister, Sweet Sixteen. Love the line and the panties! The collection is called ‘Grammercy Gardens’ and was shot in Manhattan’s Grammercy Hotel. The MTTM woman is still scandalous as ever, but now that she’s lived and learned a little, she’s also figured out the advantages of being a tad refined when called for. The collection includes tees  (one inspired by Daphne Guinness), plus mini dresses, rompers and ruffled tops and a twill jacket.

And since I was taking a trip down YouTube memory lane in an earlier post today, I want to share with you one of my very favorite M.O.B. promo videos of al times. It’s from 2006 and features the brand’s first swimsuit line. Even then, Leah was setting trends, using a gorilla as a video extra (”Oh you want that banana!”), which if you take a look around at music videos and commercials these days, has become extremely common place.

More shots of the line after the jump.

Karmaloop: Top 3 Leggings Styles

 Karmaloop: Top 3 Leggings Styles

We posted yesterday about Karmaloop’s No. 1 category, dresses, and promised we would follow-up with its second-most-popular category today. And the winner for hot category No. 2 is……leggings! The top selling leggings style (shown from left to right above) for Karmaloop is Tripp NYC’s “Indigo Acid Wash” denim leggings. (It’s a look that’s not getting a lot of love from editorial, but I know from speaking to people in retail that they are hot everywhere, not just K-loop.) After Tripp, comes Married to the Mob’s “Crayon Logo” leggings, and then Kill City’s “Oh La La” leggings. Tomorrow, the third most-popular category on Karmaloop for women. I think it’seasy to guess what it is, but then again I know what it is.

M.O.B. X Lacoste “Hiromi” Sneaker!!

MTTMLaCoste Shoes

Samia and handed over to Manhattan’s Pierre hotel yesterday to enjoy high tea (yes, high tea, trust, for this Jersey girl it was a total hoot and a half) with all our M.O.B. crew favorites in celebration of Married to the Mob’s collaboration with Lacoste. The shoes are amazing, unique and the lace theme couldn’t be more on point. Priced at $120, look for them to go on sale February 13th. I’m behind on getting these up, but after this post I’m going to do another one dedicated to the people in attendance (Leah looked smoking hot–wait ’til you see!)

M.O.B. Holiday 2009: Coziness!

 M.O.B. Holiday 2009: Coziness!

Married to the Mob’s head babe in charge, Leah McSweeney, just revealed its holiday line, as modeled by the one-and-only Sweet 16, (who has gone all blonde on us!). Standouts are the knit leggings and the brand’s venture into zip-up sweaters, which are warm and cozy, but with the added playfulness of that famous M.O.B. edge. I’m also digging the butt-length, distressed hoodie and this one tee-shirt with MTTM written in big, block letters along the bottom hem.  Find and purchase your very own faves at Married to the Mob!

M.O.B. STILL Rules!

17 August 2009, 18.23 | Posted in Design, Fashion | No comments »

Samia and I finally stopped by M.O.B. headquarters on Friday to say hello to boss lady Leah McSweeney and check out what she has planned for the fall. Can I first just say how happy it makes me to visit her bustling office (with its AMAZING Empire State Building view of southern Manhattan–tho, sob, still miss those Twin Towers….r.i.p.) and realize that the entire joint is headed up by a 26-year old female!! Seriously, that is my idea of nirvana. Especially when you consider that her empire was formed while sitting on a Manhattan stoop, sipping Marqueritas.

As usual, there’s a lot on the table, including M.O.B’s takeover this week of Karmaloop, which will include a 5-year anniversary product launch exclusive to the site, another kicks collabo , plus a party at Magic on August 31st.
