What to steal from the menswear shows: Gucci AW15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Gucci AW15 menswear

Big boys blouses, double breasted coats, swishy scarves and fur-lined slippers. Yes please to all of the above and well done Alessandro Michele for giving Gucci a cooler (if slightly Saint Laurent-ified) feel. Apparently he and his team worked around the clock to completely redesign the SS15 collection, after Frida Giannini’s swifter-than-expected exit from Gucci… Continue reading

What to steal from the menswear shows: Prada AW15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Prada menswear aw15

As with last season, Mrs Prada ponders the relationship between men and women, showing both menswear and womenswear on the same stage for Prada AW15. “What are the unexpected possibilities, the various relationships that may occur between the way men and women can or would dress? The way they represent themselves? This is a subject always under investigation.”

My main takeaways from the Prada menswear AW15 show are bare legs and bovver boots (for girls) and Paul Weller hair (for boys). Plus, who’s going to be first to wear their sleeves turned up just so…? Continue reading

Book report: some recent recommendations

Waterstones Piccadilly cafe

Books and bookshops – two of my favourite things. In fact, I may have bought more books than clothes last year. And it was a good year for book shops. Who can forget the publicity coup that was the Great (accidental) Waterstones Lock-In? Then there was the big reveal of Foyles in Charing Cross Road and the brand new Maison Assouline store in Piccadilly. Continue reading

3 karen-walker-gold-eyewear

I don’t know how these passed me by but I just spotted these Karen Walker pics on Honestly WTF. To celebrate ten years of eyewear success, Walker released ten limited edition sunglasses designs in special gold frames with gold mirrored lenses. I love my Karen Walker sunnies so I’m happy to raise a glass to another 10 years. Continue reading

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

1. BURBERRY X VSCO

Burberry X VSCO Cam

Everyone knows about Instagram, but VSCOcam is another photo social networking app that’s gaining popularity with photography fans and brands. Its filters are stunning and it lends itself to professional photographers and brands who want to create galleries (called ‘grids’) of a superior standard. Here’s one I discovered from VSCOcam and Burberry which lets users upload their own images to a ‘grid’ dedicated to rainy weather. Continue reading

“The way the industry works, you’re driven to do all these grandiose shows, all these things that are incredibly expensive. And then one day, the sponsorship runs out. You’re on your own.”

Quote of the day: Raf Simons on fast tech

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Raf-simons-Quote-Of-Day

“I have a huge disinterest in technologies that accelerate cultural speed. Immediately, they make me uncomfortable. But I’m fascinated by what society is becoming, and its evolution. I am watching the behaviour more than the thing itself…I am more interested in mystique and romance, what’s difficult to find, aesthetics that are not in your face. There are things you immediately know are surface, and other things the opposite, and I’m more interested in the opposite. When you find everything so easily, you don’t look deeply anymore and you don’t investigate anymore. And you get bored.”
Raf Simons, Style.com

Quote-Of-The-Day-Suzy-Menkes-Disneyrollergirl

“In my heart, I would wish for young designers not to get hooked on this fascinating but dangerous game. There may be an instant buzz, but I think that a long and steady read – for example, as for Alber Elbaz at Lanvin – is the way to lasting fashion happiness.”
Suzy Menkes said it best. As Frida Giannini vacates Gucci, Menkes laments the fashion merry-go-round, Vogue.com
