Borrowed from the boys: masculine florals

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Prada-masculine-florals-ss14 2

I mean really, what are these fab floral jackets and knits doing on the menswear rails when they should be adorning the hangers in my wardrobe? From Prada’s shirts (love these Leibowitz ad pics) to Dries’ tonal jackets, to H&M’s heavily inspired Harrington, I would happily wear any and all of these masculine florals… Continue reading

Cartier: Style and History at the Grand Palais

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Cartier-Style-and-history

Jewelled cigarette cases, necessaires, cigarette cases, necessaires… Cartier could quite easily have staged its Cartier: Style and History exhibition at Paris’s Grand Palais around these stunning, opulent objects alone. A historic display of around 600 pieces, most from the Cartier archive, it comprises grand tiaras from the world’s royalty (both regal and Hollywood), epic jewels, and magical timepieces, alongside original sketches, plaster moulds, photos and ledgers.

Lego’s customisable adult watches chime with the times

1 Lego-watch-yellow

By accident or clever engineering, Lego’s latest offering is right in tune with fashion right now. Its line of adult watches marry poppy primary colours with playful graphics, plus the current obsession with all things customisable and hackable.

Head to the Lego Watch website and you can choose from a number of different styles with customisable straps and bezels. The links of the watches click in and out of place and can be changed to different colours, while silicone straps can also be added. Continue reading

1 Maripol-Joyrich-Machine-A

I’m a bit late with this but I’m assured it’s not all sold out. L.A. brand Joyrich has collaborated with creative polymath, Maripol on an exclusive line of kit that’s on sale at Machine A in London.

Maripol is well known for her era-defining Polaroids of Madonna, Keith Haring & co (I must get around to buying her brilliant book) as well as styling Madonna in the early days. (Yeah, Madonna had a stylist all along. I feel cheated.)  Continue reading

Blue Farrier gives Issa a new London-girl look

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Issa_Pre Fall 14

Wow, Issa, I hardly recognised you! The Issa pre-fall 2014 collection has landed and new creative director Blue Farrier has given it a polished, London-girl look. There are shades of Chloe in here with the poncho cuts and womanly romance (Farrier previously spent time at Chloe and Stella McCartney), plus great touches of whimsy like the Cecil Beaton-esque handwriting and a perfume bottle blouse print.

Haute joaillerie, Hermes at Harrods and a little Dior whimsy

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Hermes-GALOP-bracelet

This week is all about couture but did you know that alongside the gowns, there’s also the haute joaillerie to be wowed by? Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Boucheron, Chanel and the rest all showcase their top-tier diamonds, pearls and rubies; quite frankly, the frocks are small fry compared to this finery.

Raf Simons X Sterling Ruby: An art-fashion clash made in heaven

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Raf-Simons-Sterling-Ruby

I could write a thesis-length post on Raf Simons and Sterling Ruby’s epic joint AW14 collection, but I won’t. Instead I recommend you read all about in Tim Blanks’ Style.com report. Or just enjoy the pictures. Suffice to say, the conceptual art student is alive and kicking on the catwalk and if you love collage, Pollock-meets-Clash paint splatters, Lichtenstein primary colours and provocative wordplay, then it’s all here for ya, wrapped up in dun-coloured cashmere and nubby tweed. Continue reading

Modern Africa hits the menswear runway

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

A-Sauvage-aw14

I’ve enjoyed the modernised African references that have come through so far on the AW14 menswear runways – notably at Agi & Sam, A Sauvage and Stella Jean. I’m hoping we’ll see more at the forthcoming women’s shows. As much as I like traditional kente cloth and wax-style prints, it’s good to see a more varied approach to ‘Africa’ that moves on from Masai beading and casually draped robes. Continue reading

Buy it now: Sophia Webster’s 3-inch Ida heels

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Sophia-webster-net-a-porter-Ida 5

I love that this exclusive Sophie-Webster-for-Net-a-Porter collection is called Ida. Ida Petersson is Net-a-Porter’s senior shoes buyer who I first met a few years ago when she was at Harvey Nichols. She’s like a bundle of energy in person, so it’s no surprise that she’s a fan of Webster, whose own aesthetic is equally high on the fizzy fun factor. Continue reading
