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

London Fashion Week AW13: Day one highlights

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bam! That’s the sound of London Fashion Week going off with a bang. Well it did for me, because my first show was London College of Fashion’s MA show – its first as part of LFW. The show was edited to the ten strongest collections, of which my favourite was from Na Di, a menswear graduate whose punchy printed tailoring mashed up traditional references with hiphop attitude.

Everybody loves Raf…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


…Or maybe that’s just me. I certainly love Raf Simons’ passionate and considered approach to everything he does. Example: his latest collaboration with Fred Perry. Launching on 22nd Feb in all Fred Perry Laurel Wreath collection stores and online, it’s an ode to collage, juxtaposing “very different materials, prints and colours, therefore giving the wearer a possibility to combine the garments in different ways,” says Simons.

First look: M&S launches Made In Great Britain heritage menswear for AW13

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Hands down, one of the biggest menswear trends for AW13 is all things traditional, homespun and British. So think Harris tweeds, Scottish cashmeres and Savile Row-style tailoring using textiles from our oldest mills. Nicely timed then, is Made In Great Britain from Marks & Spencer, its heritage line that will be launching in selected stores in the autumn. Continue reading

AW13: Kinky primness

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Prim kinkiness, kinky primness. So say Celine (pre-fall 2013) and J.W.Anderson (AW13 men)…

London Collections: Men AW13 – from highland heritage to city subcultures

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Can you forecast next season’s trends based on three days in one city? A little. Two stood out for me at London Collections: Men this week – neither very surprising. Menswear trends are a bit more predictable than womenswear because (as a rule) men like to shop for the familiar rather than the new. So we saw a ton of youth subculture references, plus many nods to Great British heritage and manufacturing. Continue reading

Mr Porter collaborates with young British designers for London Collections: Men

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Today, the second day of London Collections: Men, saw the release of Mrporter.com’s commercial collaboration to support independent British designers. Katie Eary, Sibling, Richard Nicoll and Matthew Miller each created three exclusive pieces for Mr Porter and every one of them is a thing of beauty. Continue reading

AW13 menswear day 1: Hi-vis meets intrepid traveller at London Collections: Men

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

In the main, I like my menswear shows colourful, casual and youthful. So thank you Topman Design for your intrepid traveller theme, incorporating hi-vis berry and citrus-hued outerwear (above), including many variations of furry hooded parka (is the cropped parka the new cropped puffer?) and some clever backpacks dripping with tech-cessory hooks and holders.
