Clique’s interactive print-to-mobile magazine launches – with exclusive Katie Eary product

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Clique

Has anyone quite nailed the ‘shop-from-the-printed-page’ experience that publishers are currently obsessed with? So far we’ve seen a few attempts, with Harper’s Bazaar US and Look magazine employing Blippar technology to bring existing magazine content to life – while hopefully generating extra revenue.

New to the space is Clique, a free print magazine mailed to its target audience, with every item shoppable, sharable and watchable by smartphone. Continue reading

Buy it now: French cult classics at Vestiaire Collective

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Vestiaire-Collective

Curated online luxury resale is hitting its stride which comes as no surprise. Who has the time to trawl through pages of duff stuff before they get to the goodies? Vestiaire Collective cottoned onto this early, with its very French marketplace of heritage and high fashion accessories and collectable cult brands.

When I fancy indulging my habit for pre-worn Celine, Dinh Van and APC, I head to Vestiaire Collective first. Continue reading

Buy it now: The Monnier Frères accessory edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Acne-clutch-Aw13

Buying clothes online isn’t always straightforward. Accessories on the other hand? A different story. Monnier Frères, the accessory etailer has one of the best accessory edits on the web, including Celine sunnies, that Acne box clutch and leathergoods from one of my favourite quiet-luxe brands, Valextra.

When you buy from Monnier Frères you get worldwide delivery in 24 hours and guaranteed free returns within 30 days. If you’re still not sold, I have even better news. I’ve been given an exclusive code for my readers that allows you £80 off when you spend £250. Just enter disneyrollergirl80 in the discount code box when you check out. I very rarely do discounts or giveaways on here but Monnier Frères is a great site worth bending the rules for.

If you’re planning on selfgifting a handbag or accessory from the likes of Alexander Wang, Chloe, Valentino or any of those other usual lux suspects, you may as well take advantage of this deal. Here are a few suggestions to get you started…

Winser London: progress report

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Winser-London-Disneyrollergirl

Back in February, I ran a piece on the newly-launched Winser London. An online-to-offline fashion start-up founded by Kim Winser (former CEO of Pringle Of Scotland and Aquascutum), it specialises in luxed-up working wardrobe essentials at a friendlier price point than you’d expect. Supplementing the online offer are pop-up shops, so far in Gerrards Cross and Harvey Nichols. Nine months on, I caught up with Winser to find out how the first year of trading is going, what the challenges have been and what’s next for the brand… Continue reading

Farfetch: the India edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

le_mill

Farfetch continues its discovery and celebration of independent retail with the winner of its global Superstore contest. Le Mill in Mumbai is this year’s victor, winning the opportunity to sell a selection of its product on the site. Launched in 2011, by Cecilia Morelli Parikh, Julie Leymarie and Aurélie de Cort, Le Mill is a vast concept store in Wadi Bunder, housing international and Indian designers (Isabel Marant, Peter Pilotto, Savio Jon and Sabayaschi among them) alongside furniture, books, interiors and even flowers. Frankly, this looks like my kind of shop.

Le Mill is the first Indian store to be added to Farfetch’s global online marketplace, a coup that will bring awareness to the store from shoppers worldwide. My  favourite pieces include Isabel Marant’s patent flats, 3.1 Phillip Lim’s sequin-scattered sweatshirt and Andraab’s raw-edged cashmere scarf

Oliver Spencer’s boyswear for girls

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Oliver-Spencer-womenswear-aw13 5

What’s the verdict on Oliver Spencer’s new wowmenswear AW13 collection? I’m getting vaguely APC-ish vibes which is no bad thing. The tailored jeans are a nice change from the oceans of skinnies out there and the chunky knits have their own boyish charm. The styling and casting of these press pictures is very appealing too, ageless and gamine – how cute is that fringed bob? Continue reading

The latest retailer to tap tastemakers’ own style to showcase its wares is Zara. On its site under ‘Pictures‘ is a Tumblr-style cascade of lovely lifestyle images featuring Yasmin Sewell, Cate Underwood, Caroline De Maigret and Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea. Plus street style shots from Roy Of The Street and Citizen Couture. Continue reading

SPOILER ALERT! Selfridges advent calendar and Net-a-Porter beauty box

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Selfridges-Advent-Calendar

It seems Brits love a beauty box, but whether that’s for the handy miniatures or for the Christmassy sense of unpacking all the goodies I’m not quite sure. Anyhoo, here’s two you need to know about if you’re a beauty box fan.

First, Selfridges has launched its Christmas advent calendar (above), which is bigger and better than ever before. SPOILER ALERT: The contents are plentiful and include the following… Continue reading

Buy it now: Goodordering bike bags

GoodOrdering-bike-accessories  3

I’m far too much of a scaredy cat to cycle around London (and er, I can’t actually ride a bike), but if I was the cycling type, then Goodordering‘s boxy bike bags would be my accessory of choice. These unisex, retro-looking bags have been designed with function first and are especially aimed at people who need to cart portable offices around day to day. Thus they all have padded laptop compartments or pockets, are made of durable nylon, and are super-spacious and lightweight. The styles on offer include pannier bags, satchels, backpacks and shoppers and all are designed to clip on your bike. Continue reading

Buy it now: Eudon Choi for River Island

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

2 River-Island-Eudon-Choi_AW13

The Eudon Choi for River Island shop is open! And aren’t the look book pictures fab?

The capsule collection is part of River Island’s Design Forum which gives emerging designers a platform to reach more consumers at an affordable price. Choi based his inspiration around Vogue photographer Peter Lindbergh’s 1991 Wild At Heart shoot, which famously featured the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Tatjana Patitz as bad-ass bikers girls.

Eudon Choi’s tomboy-luxe aesthetic is all about boxy, anti-bodycon shapes in rich fabrics. The silver leather jacket (£250) is likely to sell out first, swiftly followed by the biker boots (£110). But the biker-detailed utility jacket (£150) and leather-panelled coat (£200) are probably your best bet for cost-per-wear versatility.

Shop the entire collection at Riverisland.com. Continue reading
