THE DRG STYLE INDEX: CALVIN KLEIN, H&M, COMMUNITY CLOTHING, ZOEVA, FREDERIC MALLE



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

1. FIRST LOOK AT RAF SIMONS FOR CALVIN KLEIN

Here’s a first look at what RS for CK will look like. It’s a Dan Flavin installation at the Calvin Klein store in Manhattan, which suggests that Raf is going to go full throttle on the art-ification of fashion. Well of course he is. It’s an area ripe for exploration and if anyone can do it with integrity it’s him. In other news, he’ll be showing the Calvin Klein AW17 menswear and womenswear together at NYFW in February. And he’ll show his own Raf Simons menswear collection there as well.


2. WATCH WES ANDERSON’S H&M AD

H&M is winning the Christmas ad campaign wars for me. The Wes Anderson directed short has all the Wes hallmarks, the trainscape, the window panorama, the pistachio green colour scheme and the regimented choreography. Ok the ending is a bit awkward but that’s Wes for ya. In other news, I just saw this Wes Anderson Amex ad from 2009, he’s a cute actor too…


3. COMMUNITY CLOTHING GETS SUSTAINABLE FASHION RIGHT

5. FREDERIC MALLE PICKS

Valextra Frederic Malle pochette
The Selfridges candle and perfume hall has had a boost now that it opens onto the new accessories hall. I passed through last week and spent a good half hour dousing myself in Frederic Malle scents and unguents. The Une Rose body butter is the best body butter I have ever felt, smelt and seen. The Lipstick Rose EDP is a sweet and heady potion that dries down to a softer powdery violet, and I love the leather perfume pochettes made in collaboration with Valextra (£240).

Postive fashion: Unmade customised knitwear



Unmade customised knitwear
The dreaded Christmas jumper season is incoming and if there’s one thing I loathe, it’s novelty sweaters. If you want a standout sweater, why not design one yourself? It’s easier, and more affordable than you might think.

Just before London Fashion Week, I got the chance to explore the studios of Unmade, a pioneering London company doing radical things with knitwear. (more…)

Positive fashion: L/Uniform bags



L/Uniform bag of Daphne Hezard by Elise Toide

Who doesn’t love an Instagram rabbit hole? After Monocle magazine’s Daphne Hezard posted one of the pictures from my book (of Hezard’s cute deskscape – above), the co-founder of her lush red L/Uniform satchel commented, which led me to her own very fetching Instagram account. (more…)
