Wishlist: A Child Of The Jago’s buffalo bowler

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 buffalo-vogue

After years of being bodyconned to death, I’m soooo glad to see fashion taking a looser sportier turn. The nostalgia for the 80s/90s buffalo-grunge-androgyny years is certainly helping (although don’t mourn bodycon too much if you’re a fan, it’ll be back in a jiffy for sure).

Alongside the looser, boyish silhouettes, I’m drawn to these Fagin-esque A Child Of The Jago hats. This is the Buffalo Stance shoot in the current Vogue, a kind of buffalo-meets-hard-times-meets-Galliano mash-up in which A Child Of The Jago’s bulbous Wild Bill bowler features in every shot.

Quote of the day: Sofia Coppola

“I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’.”
Sofia Coppola, Red Magazine, on researching teen language for The Bling Ring

A successful film director who’s intelligent, glamorous and female? Let’s face it, it doesn’t happen often. So the glossies must have been gagging to get Sofia Coppola for their covers. The July issue of Red features a cover plus six pages of Coppola (sporting Miu Miu, Valentino and Chanel), in which she shares her own astute observations of celebrity culture and modern-day youth culture.

On researching LA teenagers for The Bling Ring, she said, “I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’. I also went to clubs in LA with all the girls dressed up in miniskirts and sky-high shoes. That was pretty exotic. Everyone was texting, taking pictures, and I tried to put as much of that in the film as possible. It was almost sci-fi, this idea that living does not count unless you are documenting it. All those things interest me and say so much about our culture, and what is emphasised as important.”

The July issue of Red is out on 5th June.

COSMETICS A LA CARTE COLOUR AND CULTURE EXHIBITION
This is turning out to be an exciting month for beauty. I would love to make it to the Chanel no5 exhibition in Paris but frankly, that ain’t gonna happen. More achievable is the Cosmetics A La Carte ‘Colour And Culture’ exhibition next week at 50 Redchurch Street E2. Celebrating forty years of the specialist cosmetics company (I’ve always wanted one of their custom-made foundations), the exhibition is only on for five days (22-26 May, 10-6pm) so rearrange that diary and schedule it in!

OMG! Hamish Bowles for Vogue TV!

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Breaking news: Hamish Bowles is getting his own Vogue TV show. That is all…

(Actually, that’s not all. Fashionista has a story about a whole clutch of Vogue online TV content, but the only show I’m really interested in is Vintage Bowles. Bring it on…)

First look: Miss Vogue

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

**SPOILER ALERT** Ding dong! The inaugural issue of Miss Vogue has been published and my verdict is in. First impressions: it looks like Teen Vogue! I was expecting a full-size issue and something thinner, so it’s good to see a perfect-bound spine. I was totally not surprised to see Cara on the cover – I expected her or Edie (P.S, thank you Vogue for putting a model on the cover). Continue reading

Vogue Festival 2013: the verdict

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Was every panelist and speaker at Vogue Festival briefed to implore us to work hard and follow our dreams? Because that felt like the overarching message of the weekend at the second annual Vogue-branded event.

“If you’re really good at what you do and have a dream, It will happen,” said Alber Elbaz on Sunday, and when Alber says this you believe him. Of all the speakers I saw, he was the most relaxed, funny and passionate and also a brilliant storyteller. But pretty much all the key speakers put their success down to a mix of talent and tenacity, plus a personal point of view. Continue reading

The Michael Kors machine is about to get even bigger with the announcement of his colour cosmetics line arriving in August.

Glamour magazine: How Cara Reinvented Cool

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Much as I love digital, there’s still a buzz to be had from seeing my byline in print. Glamour magazine commissioned me to write a few words on Cara Delevingne, in which I tried to pinpoint the essence of her success. Conclusion? It’s a combo of everygirl personality plus a super-social media presence that her fans love to engage with. And from a brand point of view, rather like some uber-bloggers, Cara has the cash factor – when she wears something, it sells. (As streetwear brand Hardware LDN told me, “when Cara was spotted wearing Hardwear LDN at London Fashion Week, we sold 200 units within the hour”.) No wonder she gets repeat-booked by brands like DKNY, Chanel and Burberry – it’s all about the ROI, baby!
