To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Rihanna’s first collection for Fenty
It’s been to the fashion worlds knowledge for some time that Rihanna would make history by being the first black woman to head a brand at the very prestigious french luxury goods conglomerate LVHM (short for Moët, Hennessy – Louis Vuitton). LVMH is also the share holders of Céline, Dior, Loewe, Mars Jacobs, Givenchy among many other brands we have on you not-so-accessible shopping list. And this week, without any notice, Riri and LMVH dropped the first lookbook of Fenty’s first collection. If it gave the fans what they wished for? Perhaps. It’s more mature than other clothing we’ve seen Rihanna do, the leading words are raw denim, sharp tailoring with a twist and deconstructed shirts. But on the other hand, I don’t think LMVH are the sweatpants wearing types (but what do I know about their free time). See full collection on Vogue.
Womens rights are human rights
The new abortion laws in Alabama has hit the internet hard and once again, people how aren’t usually the first to engage in political issues on instagram has made their voices heard. This is something that can’t be left uncommented. The Cut has a series of articles regarding the week. Let’s all make the voices we were given by women before us and fight for the right to our bodies. Nobody can do everything, although women will try, but everyone can do something, and that’s what it’s gonna take from all of us.
Alexa Chung’s YouTube channel
My favorite channel on YouTube right now? Alexa Chung. We’ve seen her do short YT documentaries on Vogue UK’s channel for some times (some of us have watched it more than others…) but now she is back with a channel under her own name. How about following her on journey towards her Met Gala dress? Or a weekend in Munich? This makes me pick up my AC obsession again. JK, I never dropped it.
Memorial Day Sale
Memorial Day Weekend something Scandinavians know very little about. However, we do like the benefits it provides. Like mid season sales. Am I the only one who likes to do an imaginary shopping cart? Here below is mine. The total cost is my rent for the next 10 years but that’s not the point.
