Sport meets street at Net-a-Sporter

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Net-a-sporter-netasporter

Aaaaand here she is! The much-hyped Net-a-Sporter category has launched on Net-a-Porter and it has a pretty broad edit of product for the seriously sporty or the pretender who wants to look the part (guess which one I am?). Is it me or is the equestrian gear a little bit kinky? I’m all over those riding boots and prim ‘show shirts’. I’m also loving the primary-coloured one pieces from Lisa Marie Fernandez – the deep neckline and high cut legs are perfect.

Here’s an edit I prepared earlier, or click HERE to go to the site.

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

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, featuring the brands currently buzzing on on my radar…

1. LA GARCONNE DOES BRICKS AND MORTAR

La-Garconne-Store-TriBeCa

Somehow this passed me by, but one of my favourite etailers has gone over to the B&M side. La Garconne, the purveyor of perfectly judged boyish womenswear has opened a physical store in TriBeCa, selling its covetable mix of Margiela, Acne Studios and The Row. Message to La Garconne: London needs you! Continue reading

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, featuring the brands currently buzzing on on my radar…

1. PAULA GERBASE HEADS TO JOHN LOBB

paula-gerbase

This is rather exciting news for John Lobb. The British shoemaker, owned by Hermes, has appointed Paula Gerbase as artistic director. I don’t know the full story but I’m guessing the brand wants to expand beyond footwear (Berluti-style), and hiring a buzzy young luxury designer is a good way to do it. Continue reading

The Bicester Brit factor

Bicester Village Designers Collective

What better way to spend a weekend than heading down Oxfordshire way to Bicester Village? If you do, you’ll be well rewarded, with the fifth British Fashion Council Designers’ Collective pop-up offering plentiful pickings of our celebrated womenswear talent. Curated by Yasmin Sewell, this year’s edit is the best yet (no filler!) and better still, it comes with a new art twist. The Royal Academy has jumped on board, so there are limited edition prints to buy from Royal Academians including Gary Hume and Grayson Perry. Continue reading

Retail report: The rebirth of Chiltern Street

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Cire-Trudon-Chiltern-Street

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Chiltern Firehouse is the best thing about Chiltern Street, despite the fact that it’s not even properly open yet. While London’s It people have enjoyed countless dinners over the last few months, the hotel and restaurant don’t fully open for another couple of weeks (breakfast and lunch service is due to start at the end of June).

But there are plenty of other reasons to head to this genteel pocket of London, not least its new retail focus. If you skew to the types of brands sold on Mr Porter or Tres Bien and have a Scandi ‘lagom’ attitude to getting dressed, then this is your kind of shopping street. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Public School for J Crew, Alexander Olch, My-Wardrobe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1) J CREW X PUBLIC SCHOOL

Public-Image-J-Crew-. Womenswearjpg

Every good menswear designer knows there’s more money to be made from womenswear. So naturally it makes sense for (newly crowned CFDA Menswear Designer Of The Year) Public School to work with J Crew on this womenswear collab. Continue reading

Selfridges-handbag-revamp

Selfridges loves a sweeping gesture and here’s one that’s hard to beat. It’s launching a destination accessories department which will see its luxury handbag offer double in size. (Does the world need more Celine bags? Clearly it does.) Continue reading

1. CELINE’S BEIJING STRATEGY

Celine-Beijing-Faye-Wong 2

So the small, discreet, exclusivity rule doesn’t count when it comes to China. Hello Céline fashion show in Beijing! Céline staged a big-ass fashion show in a celeb-packed venue in Beijing’s art district last week to showcase its AW14 collection. The likes of pop star Faye Wong (above) arrived properly attired the Céline way with mannish coat robed over the shoulders. Why the fanfare from this usually reserved brand? Continue reading
