Buy it now: Bourgeois tomboy

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Saint Laurent

A lovely new hybrid for me to geek over. Bourgeois tomboy (as demonstrated in the above ad by Saint Laurent) is a mix of three parts tomboy (precision tailoring, something denim, scruffy hair), with two parts old school poshness (bourgeois bag, bow-neck blouse). A good enough reason to stock up on lady bags, schoolboy blazers and vintage Cartier jewels I feel…

Olympia Le Tan is famous for her book clutches which have been toted by most of young Hollywood and highly coveted by everyone else. She’s less known for her milk carton bag, an equally whimsical handmade creation from a few seasons ago, that slings across the shoulder on a rope cord (below). Continue reading

Introducing Seek No Further from Fruit Of The Loom

Seek-No-Further-SS14 4

Just launched: Seek No Further, a new premium fashion line from the heritage utility brand, Fruit Of The Loom. I love these offbeat campaign images from the brand (shot by Colin Dodgson), which is said to harness a pioneering spirit, “inspired by yesterday’s visionaries, today’s trailblazers and tomorrow’s innovators”. Although we’ve all heard that before so the proof will be in the pudding… Continue reading

Dries van Noten store in Paris

I’m in Paris for a few days to do some shows, some re-sees, some window shopping and hopefully to get a first look at the Dries Van Noten exhibition. To prep myself I swung by the Dries shop in Quai Malaquais. I managed to take a sneaky photo – isn’t it gorgeous? Continue reading

FIRST LOOK AT TOM FORD’S FACE PALETTE

Tom Ford face palette

Last week I met with the PR for Tom Ford Beauty, where she arranged all the latest spring lip and nail colours before me. Most exciting was a first look at the new (and first ever) Tom Ford face palette (above) due in April. Even the MD of the store we were in snuck over from his meeting at the next table to get a peek. In the pics below you can also just see the Lip and Cheek Shimmers (bottom right) which also land on counter in April. Continue reading

Quote of the day: Dries van Noten

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Dries Van Noten Paris autumn/winter 2013

“People get this very romantic vision of a fashion designer who in one night makes 25 sketches and in the morning throws them on the table and there are a lot of women in white aprons with the pins on the lapel and they start to grab the sketches and… It’s not like that. Forget it! It’s lists, it’s computers, it’s meetings, it’s planning, it’s organising. It’s all these things.”
Dries Van Noten, The Telegraph

I can’t wait to see Dries Van Noten: Inspiration at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris this weekend!
