Bella Freud x Cutler & Gross collaboration

Bella Freud X Cutler & Gross

No DRG Style Index this weekend as I’m preoccupied with Vogue Festival. But instead I’ll leave you with this fab forthcoming collab between Bella Freud and Cutler & Gross. Freud’s collaborations are always well chosen and this one is so good, featuring a unisex sunglasses style with mirrored lenses (£354). (more…)

Coach class

Coach pre fall 2016

When it comes to featuring cars in fashion shoots, have you noticed only vintage cars will do? Here’s the perfect example; Coach’s first ever pre-fall campaign for its Coach 1941 women’s RTW and bag line. In this context though, a classic American, leather-interiored car absolutely nails it.

Diane Arbus In The Beginning at The Met Breuer, from July 12th 2016

Diane Arbus: In The Beginning looks at seven important early years of the influential photographer, from when she took her first proper roll of 35mm film and presciently numbered it, #no 1.

There will be over 100 photographs on display, of which more than two-thirds have never been seen before. (more…)

My picks from Vogue Festival and Photo London 2016

Vogue Festival 2015 -cover wall

Next weekend is set to be jam-packed with activity from a double whammy of Vogue Festival and Photo London. Vogue Festival in partnership with Harrods, is in its fifth year now and I think the line-up for next weekend is its best ever. I guess that’s to be expected though, when it’s also a celebration of 100 years of British Vogue. I’m particularly excited about the interviews with Grace Coddington, Juergen Teller and Gucci’s Allesandro Michele, all unique creatives who aren’t overexposed as media personalities. (more…)
