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.
I will have it all, starter main course and to finish off some desert!
For someone who’s knowledge about British fashion is limited to Burberry and JW Anderson, I am stunned. Hey, New York was good, but London is kind of making my jaw drop. And I haven’t felt that about fashion in some time. Actually I am pretty confused right now. Stuck between maximalism and minimalism.
“I’m not a fantasy fashion designer. I’m fascinated by people’s lives. And I want my clothes to live in their lives, and their wardrobes” as Rejina told Vogue Runway.
I for one really really want Rejina to be in both my wardrobe and my life ASAP.
Ohhh I spoke too soon didn’t I? Tulle hasn’t been wearable since French revolution, or it was only if your main job was bossing other people (not wearing tulle) around and eating tremendous volumes of cake, but man it’s pretty. Some things never change.
Ah, there is that post Philo minimalism I was talking about during New York fashion week. But made brand new. Now this is a minimalism train I’d love to get myself a ticket too. Old Céline meets Rachel Greene meets early Jacquemus. If I must compare which I rather wouldn’t. But I am signing up for early notice when the collection is dropping.
I am so stealing this styling trick for tomorrow. Genius.
Linn actually sent me this dress telling me this is what she is wearing to my wedding next summer. I am totally okay with it.
I always dying for the flowers of Erdem and please can we all just make long gloves come back? It’s chic in a way only something deeply impractical can be chic.
BRB running to my closet and copying this color combination for work tomorrow. No but seriously.
So masculine feminin, glamorous, chic and luxe. Appreciate every look Posh sent down the runway but there was something about those sharp collar shirts.
Rocha, the Brit queen of occasion wear. Like old English china but make it fashion.
JW has been on my favorite list for quite some time. I love what he is doing at both his own brand and for Loewe. This collection was no exception. I appreciate the Brit flirt too with the small flower patterns and updated trenchcoats.
I had pretty high expectations on Burberry simply because I love the Brit grunge thing they’ve had going on lately. And even if all my prediction left me feeling like there could have been more, I loved this extra long coat with the tone-in-tone layering action.
