Bitches, it’s getting cold in here! No worries though, because the Most Official Bitches of streetwear have got you covered with their latest drop, the Holiday 09 Collection. A bevy of fair-isle prints, sweater dresses and classic Ts, Leah McSweeny of Married to the Mob delivers a collection that shows clear signs of evolution from past seasons.
Typical MOB fare plays a big part in this collection, including the jackets they are famous for. Standouts are a black-and-white woolen varsity jacket with pockets, which is a bit more mature in feel from their past collections. For a more traditional streetwear feel, go with the purple puffer, complete with faux fur collar.
Other repeat MOB offenders, such as their classic statement T’s and skinny jean, get updates including a nice grey wash for the jeans. Perfect compliment for winter whites, including a white T.
Beyond the MOB basics, the Holiday 09 collection offers plenty of trend-making items that are specifically aimed at taking the streetwear heavyweight to a new level (at least in my opinion). Trendy grayed boyfriend jeans and crop tops are spot-on with the whole 90s revival going on now, while patterned leggings with multi-tribal print are fun and current. Another stand-out item is a colorblock rugby sweater– the front features red, blue, yellow and black colorbock in a very high-fashion way, while the back keeps its street with a simple number logo. Not mad at it!
A gray riveted top is another stand-out, reflecting the brand’s attempt to synthesize street and high-end style. With this collection, the brand bites many of the interweb haters, who have categorized MOB as a strictly T’s and tanks brand. The Most Official Bitches are clearly stepping their game up with fun, funky pieces just in time for Holiday 09!
