OTHER X Lee denim collection Aw14

It’s all about designer denim collaborations at the moment. Hot on the heels of J Brand X Simone Rocha comes this collection from OTHER X Lee. To celebrate 125 years of Lee Jeans, the brains behind OTHER Shop have created a ten-piece collection of dip-dyed, fray-edged, embroidered and scribble-printed denim and jersey-wear, affordably priced from £45 to £125.

And to push things further, they’ve erected an entire shop to go with it. Head to 35 Neal Street, WC2 to experience the 1.25 pop-up shop until 4th January 2015.

Chanel No 5 for the bath, the body and the senses

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Chanel-no5-Loose-Powder

Ready for some OTT indulgence? If not now, then when? Chanel just keeps delivering with the brand extension pampering products – latest is this cache of Chanel No 5 goodies for ‘the bath, the body and the senses’. That translates to a loose body powder (£50), a body cream (£60) and even a bath soap (a virtually a steal at £22).

Personally I’m most seduced by the soap – who even uses bar soap any more? To me, this is strictly for show. Get it out for display on special occasions, sniff it, admire it, Instagram it if you must, then pack it away. Far too good to use!

Burberry Prorsum pre-fall 2015

Burberry Prorsum pre-fall 2015 coats 1

Burberry is still all about outerwear for me. The Burberry Prorsum pre-fall 2015 collection is heavy on voluminous, textured coats and slim bottoms and I’m noticing a big focus on furry-looking shearlings that are casual, cosy and effortless-looking. I’m also a sucker for a too-short sleeve. Yes please.

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Shinola, Michael Kors, Fenwick

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1. SHINOLA – ACTING SMALL, THINKING BIG

shinola-London-Newburgh-Street-Jamie-McGregor-Smith

Shinola’s been in the news a lot lately since it opened its rather lovely little London store on Newburgh Street. What’s most enlightening is the quietly savvy strategy behind it. For instance, who knew that the brains behind it all is Tom Kartsotis who also founded the mass market watch retailer, Fossil? His approach of creating a story around the manufacturing and people of Detroit has helped imbue the two-year-old watch-and-accessories brand with a romance that really resonates with customers.

What Asos did next – get ready for the ‘new in’ app

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

10 Asos-ss15-press-day

There’s no denying that Asos has had a tough year this year, with younger, sexier, leaner upstarts snapping at its heels (hello Missguided and Boohoo). But it’s fighting back for SS15 with some excellent product and clever customer service initiatives. What does the Asos girl want? Newness. When does she want it? All the time. And so Asos is launching ‘New In’, a new Tinder-like app that let’s you swipe yay or nay to the Asos new-in feed, adding your choices to your profile. Continue reading

Would you buy Tom Ford’s minaudiere-friendly Lips & Boys mini lipsticks?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Tom-Ford-Lips-and-Boys

So much hysteria over a lipstick! But you can kind of see why Tom Ford’s Lips And Boys collection of 50 minature lippies is causing a storm. Ford does make exceedingly good lipsticks and these tap into our desire for teeny trinkets while also being rather practical (yep, I totally fell for the marketing schpiel – whoops). Continue reading

Buy it now: Joseph AW14

Joseph-aw14-look-book

In terms of sheer lust, Joseph is one of the shows I most look forward to at London Fashion Week. It’s the combination of easy, wearable silhouettes, plus inventive styling and perfect casting that results in a memorable show where you genuinely want to buy everything, not just admire from afar.

Joseph’s heritage lies in generously proportioned knitwear and 80s-90s layers, but modern Joseph is much more of a 90s-00s minimalist-masculine mash-up. Continue reading

Ask Alison: How beauty brands are getting up close and personal with digitised stores

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest ‘Ask Alison’ post from retail expert and DRG contributor, ALISON BISHOP, looking at the emergence of interactive digital stores coming from the premium beauty sector

Bobbi-Brown-beauty-store-Covent Garden

It’s official; Covent Garden has become London’s Beauty Quarter when it comes to stores. Luxury brands Chanel, Dior and Burberry all opened mini beauty flagships here in the last couple of years while Marc Jacobs followed recently with its Tweet Shop pop-up. Now prestige beauty brands Clinique and Bobbi Brown (above) are experimenting with new, highly personal store concepts. Continue reading

Crème de la Mer Intensive Revitalising Mask – a hangover cure for your face

Autumn skin is a bitch isn’t it?

The combo of weird weather, cranked-up central heating, comfort eating, over-drinking and under-exercising all add up to – in my case – bumpy, greige and generally knackered-looking skin. Continue reading
