Streetwear Spotlight: Get Hi!p Society (@GetHiipSociety)
Q: Tell the readers a little bit about your brand and how it got started?
Q: What brands influenced you when it came to designing?
A: I would say Get Hi!p Society is a Lifestyle/street wear brand because we focus on things that we see and experience everyday. We have a lot of influences. I say one of them was Neff Headwear because of his designs, he uses a lot of bright colors and cool designs to bring his brand alive and that’s what we are trying to do with our brand. Also what attracted us was his story of getting some beanies from Target and writing Neff on it and passing them out to skate boarders and snowboards. People caught on to the name and a couple months later his brand blew up! Another influence is Johnny Cup Cakes and Pink Dolphin, these two brands have inspired us so much because they started from the ground up and built their brand to what it is today.

Sneakers: Nike Wmns Dunk Sky Hi ‘Liquid Metal’ Pack
A few weeks ago Nike released the Air max 1 ‘Liquid Metal’ pack for the ladies, now these beauties have been released. I must say I like these better than the air max 1’s because I’m a BIG fan of sneaker wedges. These will pair great with anything black and leather joggers. Retail price for $200 and available at select retailers (CNCPTS). Ladies be sure to grab these before they sell out.

Interview: Introducing Enerjiee by Sherine
This week Brand feature is Sherine Patrick the creator/designer of Enerjiee Eye-wear. She has been Featured on Fashion Bomb Daily, InStyle.com, and other popular blogs. This Brooklyn chic is doing big things in the fashion world with her hand-embellished frames. She has many designs to choose from, Swarovski crystals to spike/chained frames. All made with love in NYC. I caught up with Ms. Sherine to get a interview with her about the brand.
Who is Sherine and how did you get started with Enerjiee?
It’s many upcoming eye-wear brands out, What makes yours different from others?
A lot of the hand-embellished brands that are out now are amazing, but I also wouldn’t consider a lot of them wearable by ANY woman. I love to look different, I want to also be able to walk down the street without looking like an art exhibit. I have always kept that in mind. There may be a few that like to stand out but not 100 percent, for them, there’s a piece in the line. The customers that love the spotlight also have their pick in Enerjiee.
Who are your target customers?
Everyone! I am a girl from the hoods of Brooklyn, of Caribbean descent, who performed and acted most of her life. I understand the showgirl, I understand the ghetto fab doll, I understand the wallflower who desires to be seen etc. The different personalities that I can relate to, and have it be authentic, shows in my designs. I made something that any kind of personality can buy and wear. That was most important for me.
