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 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.

A new (fashion) year has just begun, and as autumn’s cropped cashmere cable knits and shearling coats are squeezed onto countless discount racks, we gaze towards spring and breathe in the new season’s trends. Now let’s make something very clear, trends are NOT there to be blindly followed. We DO however want to stay informed and aware. So, with that said, welcome to the first part of our SS23 Trend Guide! We hope you are just as excited as we are.
When fashion spins so quickly that collabs and limited editions are no longer enough to keep you exclusive, and when everyone suddenly dresses well, the artisan trend is the way to stand out. Inspired by sculptures and paintings, this intellectual and bold movement keeps creativity on its toes.
We say goodbye to oversized shapeless slouch and welcome molded shapes, bold hips, and artistic necklines. Loewe, Lanvin and JW Anderson do it best, and Christopher Esber keeps blowing us away with his delicate swirls and creations.
Like fine works of art, small sculptural shapes also find their way onto garments and accessories. Christopher Esber’s orbits close the gap between clothing and jewelry, and Bottega adds golden details and buckles to both bags, belts and dresses.
Like painted canvases, the dresses at Prada swept the runway and made us long for the delicate sign of the artistic hand. Y2K, intricate codes, and grunge attitude are all fine and cool, but sometimes beauty is simply enough.
