I love how Timur Kim has developed his deconstructed denim idea from last year’s CSM graduate collection. New in at Other Shop (nee B Store but now a whole other concept) is a rather lovely selection of denim-print silks. Shirts, dresses, trousers, the lot. Buy it here

Self Service magazine no 38 goes tomboy…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Self Service mag has gone all 90s tomboy for Spring 13. “This issue is very different. It’s more in the tomboy, early-’90s direction — still glamorous, though. I think it’s somewhat of a reaction to what we’ve done in the past,” creative director Suzanne Koller told Into the Gloss. In fact, it sounds like the whole mag is full of natural-looking, androgynous styling on really hot girls, minus what Koller calls ‘bimbo-style posing’.  Issue 38 is out 6th March.

London College of Fashion MA13: the standouts

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Something new for London Fashion Week this season: the addition of the London College of Fashion MA show. I usually have an aversion to student shows (they just end up being soooo long), but in this case, a concise edit of ten graduates was speedily delivered. Continue reading

Just dropped: Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens SS13

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Just arrived at Dr Martens… this new collection by Agyness Deyn. This time, her inspiration was Harajuku, hence the chunky naive sandals, Minnie Mouse bows and loveheart motifs. I’m glad to see that Dr Martens has hit its stride in recent seasons, aligning itself with the modern heritage movement and successfully catering to old and new customers (the stores in Westfield Stratford and Carnaby Street are pitch perfect).

Are Twitter-checkers causing magazine sales to slide?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

This is an interesting snippet about why fewer people are buying print magazines. According to Biz Report, the ‘mobile blinder’ effect (people hypnotised by the constant feeds on their cell phones) means customers aren’t picking up magazines at the supermarket checkout anymore. In the US,  newsstand sales of magazines are down by 8%. I’m definitely one,of those people who checks Twitter at any given moment (but I’m trying to break the habit). Are you?
