On Karlheinz clipdanglers and everyday carry

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Love a Karlheinz Weinberger clipdangler. That is, a leather clip to dangle from your belt to hang your keys from (in the style of the Karlheinz kids). Not sure that ‘clipdangler’ is an actual word but if it’s not, it should be. I found these ‘clipdanglers’ on the Vintage Showroom blog. They’re selling them at their Earlham Street shop…

And while Googling ‘clipdangler’, I came across the Everyday Carry Tumblr, full of photos of the essential stuff men carry daily in their pockets/man bags plus commentary to go with. Continue reading

Trend report: AIPR AW12 press day highlights – A.P.C, Louis W, Sunspel

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Some goodies from the AIPR AW12 press day back in March. My favourite discovery? Louis W, a capsule collection for A.P.C by in-house designer Louis Wong, consisting of perfect renditions of the bomber and biker jacket (alas, they’re in men’s sizes – typical). Due in October… Continue reading

Paris men’s fashion week photo diary

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What could be more thrilling than bumping into both Catherine Baba and Ines de la Fressange (alas, not together) on the streets of Paris? Baba flitted into the Louboutin soiree for all of five seconds, while we witnessed Ines de la Fressange being papped in Place Vendome on her way to the Schiaparelli salon launch (nice Miu Miu trousers Ines)

New menswear discovery: Laurence Airline

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I came across Laurence Airline at the MAN trade show in Paris (not to be confused with the MAN shows in London). Designer Laurence Chauvin Buthaud’s African textile pieces, made by locals from the Ivory Coast, caught my eye for their vibrancy and unisex appeal. The spring-summer 2013 collection will be sold at UK store, Agnes & LolaContinue reading

Paris Fashion Week Menswear SS13: Paul Smith

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

My main takeaway from Paul Smith ss13? The world needs more pink suits. (And red, and yellow, and peach.) I love these proportions – short ‘DB8′ jacket (i.e. double-breasted, eight buttons), slim, above-the-ankle trousers, plus note the slightly higher heel too, to ‘create an upright posture’ apparently… Continue reading

Paris Fashion Week Menswear SS13: Kenzo

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Possibly my favourite Paris show, following a brief display of parkour gymnastics (above), Kenzo heralded a return to its Jungle Jap roots, showing a sporty but tailored collection mixing influences of the urban jungles of Paris and New York with those of Asian jungles. The layers of camo and abstract animal prints are what made this collection sing for me, as well as the huge variety of accessories. Designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have brought their retailers’ eye to Kenzo so have got the balance of creativity and commerce spot on. Continue reading

Paris Fashion Week Menswear SS13: Berluti

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

My first men’s Paris Fashion Week was a wheeze of shows, presentations, exhibitions, parties and a tiny bit of shopping. Plus lots of people-watching outside cafes, drinking coffee and wafting pretend cigarettes. One of the most impressive presentations was the Berluti event in the lush Jardin du Palais Royal, I mean just look at the photos… Continue reading
