Will Burberry make Google glasses?

Burberry-ss14 4

For Burberry Prorsum’s SS14 menswear show in its new London home we were treated to a collection called Writers and Painters. A gentle mashup of Alan Bennett boyish shapes and a Hockney colour palette (primary brights expertly layered by Burberry stylist Elliot Smedley), it was certainly commercial but thoroughly eye pleasing.

Styling is so important for a show like this in which the pieces don’t reinvent the wheel and you can’t inspect the quality up close. The outfits were accessorised with soft leather drawstring duffles and polka dot ‘Wave’ sunglasses. Continue reading

Some interesting info just arrived in my inbox from Debenhams on the rise of the UK ‘Prom kings’. According to Debenhams, boys are spending 24% more on Prom prepping than last year, although still not as much as girls. While Prom has been a big deal in America for, well, ever, it’s only really taken off in the UK in the last 10 years. But jeez, has it taken a long time for retailers to catch on. Continue reading

What’s in your man bag?

Whats-in-your-man-bag-Mr-porter

Who knew that men cared about what’s in other men’s man bags?* Well, it seems Mr Porter cares. This week there’s a feature on stylish, influential men and their ‘everyday carry‘ (kind of). Naturally, I’m all over it. Of course, it helps that Mr Porter has photographed the feature in typical house style – that means styled to perfection, with the latest desirable tech and grooming goodies in place.

Indie boy wars: Saint Laurent or Burberry?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I don’t take much notice of male pop stars or what they’re wearing. The only time I pay the slightest attention is when Burberry emails me to tell me who wore what at one of its snazzy events and that’s only a nanosecond before I press the delete button (sorry Burbs, I just don’t do celebs).

Oooh look: some of the spring shirts from menswear brand, Laurence Airline have just landed at Agnes & Lola!

Human Made X Coca-Cola for Beams

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Nigo has been off-radar for me for a long time but he’s popped back on since these pictures dropped in my inbox. The ex-owner of A Bathing Ape has dug deep into his extensive workwear and memorabilia archive to produce this teeny-tiny capsule collection for his latest brand Human Made, in collaboration with Japanese store Beams.

Buy it now: Mr DRG picks his top gentlemen’s classics

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


All my girlfriends are envious of Mr DRG’s taste – in clothes I mean. He’s a very good shopper for both me and him, but when it comes to him it’s all about the gentlemanly classics. And he loves to talk detail. Here’s a little spring edit from him…

TOP ROW
Suede chukka boots, Common Projects
It’s rare that anything stacks up against a pair of vintage Chuck Taylors in the casual footwear stakes for me, but these could well be the exception. Ideal for not-too-smart, not-too-formal, meetings, I think these will likely prove a very useful addition to the wardrobe.

Quote of the day: Charlie Porter on ‘newness’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“For menswear, the shows coincide with delivery. When the men’s editors arrive in Milan, on Friday afternoon most people go, straight away, to Prada and it’s the Prada fight. Who can buy it first? Then we go and see the new show. You have to do it before the new show, while the old show is still ‘the new show’.”
Charie Porter discusses ‘newness’ at the menswear shows in BON International
