McQ-Aw14 4

Love the new McQ campaign, shot by Karim Sadli. McQ has been up and down for me, I find sometimes the collections are super-cool and other times they dip too far into commercial territory. I have kept some of the earlier printed look books (I don’t think they make them any more) and they really capture the essence of McQ which for me is steeped in outsider-y youth culture with a very British feel.  Continue reading

Quote of the day: backstage selfies

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Matthieu-Blazy-Raf-Simons

“Increasingly over the past couple of seasons, the backstage areas of shows normally reserved for post-show interviews with the designers have been rammed with a certain type of show-goers eager to take selfies with the designers. While some designers are tolerant and patiently oblige, it’s a tendency which has resulted in camera bans and buffed up security backstage at other shows where designers are less keen to play celebrity and fashion.”
Anders Christian Madsen, i-D on fashion and social media

Calvin Klein’s comeback season

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Calvin Klein MAIN  9

I’m definitely feeling big Calvin Klein comeback vibes at the moment. The classic logo-waistband pants are back on-radar, those Obsession sweatshirts have been a hit before they’ve even arrived in store, and Christy Turlington’s back in her rightful place as the face of Eternity. Continue reading

1 Agent-Provocateur-Phoenix-Bra

Off anywhere nice on your hols? Of course you are. In which case you’ll be wanting to pack a few personal treats of the luxe, lace variety in your Globe-Trotter luggage. Agent Provocateur’s summer lingerie is big on saccharine sweetness with a side serving of neon in the details. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: NIKE, HERMES, HARRODS, CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG, MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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

1. NIKE’S NEW AIR MAX LUNAR1 IS HERE

Nike-Air-Max-Lunar1
Heads-up: Nike’s new Air Max Lunar1 trainer (£105) is here, an update on the original Air Max with new ultra-lightweight cushioning and mesh panels to make the cult shoe even more comfortable and flexible. I think they have done a great job adding in new technology while keeping the heritage good looks. Continue reading

Girls On Wheels #9 (plus that time Hugh Hefner turned his tennis court into a roller rink)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I haven’t done one of these for ages and it’s the closest I’ll come to doing anything Tour De France related (hmm tenuous much?), so here goes. See if you can spot Grace Kelly on rollerskates and don’t miss the Playboy vid at the end…

What to steal from the menswear shows: Loewe SS15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jonathan Anderson’s new-look Loewe has has rave reviews so far, with its reworked logo, ad campaign and SS15 menswear all giddily received by the critics. For spring-summer 2015, Anderson’s inspiration came from pre-rave Ibiza references so it’s heavy on rustic-looking but luxurious fabrics and simple, bohemian shapes (given Anderson’s ultra-modern ambi-sexual treatment).

My standouts are the suede polo shirts, nappa biker jackets, soft suitcases and ‘Meccano’ Oxford shoes (which are on the site now). And I’m totally tying my scarves like this from now on…

Raf Simons / Sterling Ruby AW14/15 Campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

For one season only there’s no Raf Simons collection. Instead, there’s Raf Simons/Sterling Ruby, a genuine 50/50 collab that’s as much art as it is fashion. The campaign has just landed, shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Oliver Rizzo. I love the straight, short, skinniness of the trousers on model Luca Lemaire, and of course the bulbous shoes. Question is, who will be first to get their hands on the handpainted coat (and will they model it for Tommy Ton)…?

Introducing: Éadaoin Ní Drisceoil

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

7 Eadaoin-O'Driscoll 3

Love Éadaoin Ní Drisceoil‘s graduate collection, which I discovered on Instagram. Based on the Virgin Suicides, it picks up on the ‘obsessions and passions that consume girls throughout the turbulent years of adolescence’. Translation: awkward layers, odd proportions and mismatched fabrics, not to mention ill at ease styling and an unhealthy fixation with pink. Continue reading

Editorial shoot: Mad Goofy Chica

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What happens in Bristol stays in Bristol, as was the case on our West Country adventure with model-slash-dancer-slash-all-round-creative-entity, Arlie Osborne at Models 1. She showed us the sights – the street art, the waterways, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, oh and the best breakfast in the west (thank you Cafe Kino)…
