MTTM “Gramercy Gardens” Spring 2 Collection

Married to the Mob (MTTM) released their second Spring collection titled “Gramercy Gardens,” and from the looks of it there are plenty of tees and tanks to go around. The daisy motif returns on select pieces, one of them being a pair of indigo wash jeans.

The stand out piece has to be the satin jumper, which seems most refined amongst tees that read “If it ain’t stiff it ain’t worth it” or “eat drink f*** sleep breathe bleed cry live.”

Aside from the clothes, it was cool to see the McSweeney sisters double the trouble by posing together in the campaign. Nothin’ like a good ol’ family affair to give a label real roots.

Married to the Mob: Fall 2 Delivery “So High Society”

Married to the Mob: Fall 2 Delivery “So High Society”

What are little streetwear girls made of? Sugar and spice, and all things naughty and nice, that’s what little streetwear girls are made of!

The designing bitches with the mostest, streetwear legends Married to the Mob, are certainly taking the naughty-and-nice thing to heart with their Fall 2 drop–”So High Society”. Modeled by MOB staple Sarah McSweeney AKA Sweet Sixteen, the collection was inspired by the finest of feminine wiles: “gold, garters, see-through materials… being a burn book bitch, raspberries… sex, drugs & cash…Marilyn Monroe…bubble sleeves, and backless cuts”.  Not mad at it!

Nor am I mad at the cute cut-and-sew pieces, particularly the sheer button down with plaid “MOB” text stripes. A black-and-gold varsity-esque cardigan is a stand-out piece as well, complete with MOB logo lips embroidered on the upper left chest.  Another favorite was the simple tank dress, which can be worn with your favorite kicks or your finest of heels. Can multipurpose ever be a bad thing?

Highlighting the harmony between street and silkier pieces, “So High Society” features typical MOB fare like basic graphic Ts, skinny leg zip pocket jeans in both denim and black shades, and velour zip-up jackets. A newer addition is a puffer vest with a leafy print, which will probably prove to be essential come post Turkey Day. My favorite piece by far though is a simple sheer tee in black with signature “Most Official Bitches” graffitied on the front. Here’s to hoping at least one of those graffiti-print “bitches” is strategic enough to cover all your lady bits, because that would be nothing short of awesome.

Styled by Radio Rose and shot by Brooke Nipar, check out the rest of the lookbook on Mobliving and wait impatiently  for this collection to drop at your favorite stockist like Karmaloop soon. Go ahead, cop a few pieces… play it naughty for a change!

Married to the MOB’s “Lost Summer”

Married to the MOB’s “Lost Summer”

It should come as no surprise that Leah McSweeny has based the MTTM 2009 Summer collection on that Summer when a good girl goes bad; where previous collections had all-over four leaf clovers and kisses, the Summer collection has cannabis. Looks as though Married to the MOB is holding down the spot as purveyor of up-front fashion with an “IDGAF” attitude.

The MTTM Summer 09 collection  (or any of the collections for that matter) is not for the faint of heart. If you’re a woman with guts and an affinity for bright colors, sweet mary jane, and phrases like “F*** the rest” you’ll have no problem rockin’ this collection. With a shirt that reads “Well-behaved bitches rarely make history,” which is an adaptation of the famed quote by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, the clothes pretty much speak for themselves. Because let’s be honest, a M.O.B. can’t waste her time having to verbally express what she’s about when her clothes can briefly and bluntly do it for her.

If you’ve been following MTTM you probably noticed the venture into more cut and sew pieces. While the screen print tee will forever be the signature MTTM piece, it’s fun to see that they’re adding shorts, skirts and rompers to the mix. Of course, a Summer MTTM collection would not be complete without a bikini. For Summer ’09 the “Dutchie” bikini comes in a black and white or purple and white floral/cannabis print that’s reversible to a solid color.
