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 third part of our SS23 Trend Guide! We hope you are just as excited as we are.
Frankie Shop’s oversized suits and genderless dressing is still all over social media, but for spring we see a huge anti-trend with the return to feminine shapes, traditional references and girly details.
As Miranda so epically put it, florals are nothing new. However, she hadn’t seen the SS23 Loewe runway. 3D florals breathe life into an otherwise repetitive trend and both Loewe, Prada and Dries Van Noten does it very well, even if Magda Butrym’s roses are still our go-to when it comes to floral dressing.
Possibly the epitome of girlish symbols, and one of the biggest trends for SS23; the bow is back! As seen all over the collection at Chanel and as THE detail on that it-dress at Loewe, this trend will be a huge one.
It started out with that Alaïa bag in fall, and we’ll continue down the same road for spring – SS23 is all about hearts! Chanel presented both details and heart-shaped bags, Nensi Dojaka incorporated them into her lingerie dresses and Acne Studios went all in. Expect love to be all around!
Classic feminine references and real Hollywood glam is THE look for all red-carpet events for spring. Draped seductiveness, flattering gatherings and asymmetric hems – this is about going all in! Schiaparelli, Michael Kors and Loewe showed beautiful versions, but the true show-stoppers, inspired by 80’s Grace Jones, were found at Saint Laurent.
