First look: Miss Vogue

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

**SPOILER ALERT** Ding dong! The inaugural issue of Miss Vogue has been published and my verdict is in. First impressions: it looks like Teen Vogue! I was expecting a full-size issue and something thinner, so it’s good to see a perfect-bound spine. I was totally not surprised to see Cara on the cover – I expected her or Edie (P.S, thank you Vogue for putting a model on the cover). Continue reading

Another day, another ad campaign (I know, since when did ad campaigns become editorial?), this time from Band of Outsiders. Continue reading

Margaret Howell SS13 campaign by Koto Bolofo

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I’ll never get bored of seeing how things are made, especially with campaigns like this. Once more, Margaret Howell has worked with Koto Bolofo (surely one of the most poetic of photographers, if I may gush so), commissioning him to shoot at a specialist linen weaver in County Wexford, Ireland, underscoring the brand’s dedication to traditional fabrics and quality production… Continue reading

Models from Elsewhere: Andrea Lindstrom

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When I started this project, ‘Models From Elsewhere’, I pictured model apartments decorated with family mementos. Maybe knick-knacks on mantlepieces or photos tacked to a wall. But no, the reality is that models, by their nomadic nature, don’t have lots of possessions, they keep their photos as most Gen Y-ers do – inside their phones and laptops. Instead they have wearable keepsakes; in the case of Andrea Lindstrom from Union Models, jewellery, perfume, and her brothers’ sweatshirts. Continue reading

AW13 trend report: Mich Dulce’s banana-fibre hats

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

How cheery are Mich Dulce’s new millinery pics from her AW13 look book? I spotted these darling hats on her stand at London Fashion Week in February, where Michelle told me about about the sustainable methods they’re made from. (They’re handmade from traditional Filipino T’nalak fabric, handwoven by women who Michelle trains as part of a social enterprise scheme.) Continue reading

Saint Laurent AW13: Courtney Love and Kim Gordon by Hedi Slimane

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Complain all you like, I’m loving Courtney and Kim in Saint Laurent’s new ads. Even if Kim does look a little draggy. Also, I need to know who did her nails…

Get yer sunnies on: House of Holland and Sunday Somewhere

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Henry Holland certainly knows how to build a brand. He’s the celebs’ favourite, has a coveted Debenhams range (don’t knock it, it’s most designers’ bread and butter) and his Pretty Polly tights sell in their thousands. Just in are these colour-drenched images of his new eyewear collection which lands at Browns and Houseofholland.com this week. Continue reading

Good and bad taste? It’s a load of baloney!

Teenage Precinct Shoppers: Nigel Shafran’s beauty street style

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s weird how you don’t really get beauty street style blogs. I mean, there’s a bit on The Sartorialist and Vanessa Jackman but it’s not highlighted as such and I’m not so aware of beauty street style as ‘a thing’. And yet the changes in hair and make-up over the years are often more pronounced than in clothing trends. Continue reading

Watch this: a documentary about Fashion Week street style

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I just watched Garage Magazine’s mini documentary on Style Bubble but in case you haven’t seen it, here it is again. Filming began a year ago and the result is a good 9-minute sum-up of the Fashion Week street style phenomenon. Tim Blanks makes most of the commentary but Imran Amed from Business of fashion is also featured, as is Susie Bubble and Phil Oh.

This London Fashion Week, I had a conversation with a well known street style photographer who mentioned that they have noticed a change. Some of their regulars have now decided they don’t want to be photographed, they’re actively ignoring street style photographers, even when in the past they were quite chummy. It’s not surprising to me. What die-hard fashionista wants to be seen embracing something once it’s been tainted with the naff brush? (I’m not saying street style is naff, but the bad publicity in this context could have that effect.)
