THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Christopher Kane, Net-a-Porter, Nowhere, Hermes

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

1) CHRISTOPHER KANE HAS A PROPER WEBSITE!

Christopher Kane launches website

This really is shaping up to be a big year for fashion and tech. From Chanel’s move into ecommerce, to Apple’s positioning of Apple Watch as a luxury fashion item, tech has never been more fashionable.

Cos for Mr Porter collection

I had a nose around the site and added a few non-sale bits to the mix. The books are always a good bet, as are the accessories and scents… But for cult-status labels (Rick, Raf, Yang and co), you’ll be hard pushed to find better prices than these. To get an extra 20% off the sale price, enter ‘ALTOSTRATUS’ at the checkout…

What to steal from the menswear shows: Margaret Howell AW15

What to steal from the Margaret Howell menswear 2015 show? Mainly the coats – dun-coloured peacoats, a structured trench, and the single breasted mac I’ve been looking for for yonks. As always, I look for details. Such as the length of the trousers – a bit too short to show off contrast-coloured socks; the tucked in jumpers, and the fine-knit poloneck worn under a suit jacket. All elements to adopt right now…
