Buy it now: Topman’s top coats

1 Topman-top-coats-aw14-houndstooth

Seriously loving Topman’s current coat campaign. This winter its focus is on classic men’s coats that have their roots in menswear tailoring heritage. The updated navy mac (£90) and houndstooth single breasted number (£90, above) are my favourites, and the camel overcoat (just don’t call it a Crombie) would be perfect if it was a bit longer. Note that Topman sizes start at an XXS (just saying). Continue reading

It’s all about the Burberry map scarf…

Burberry-map-scarf-Lea-Colombo-Dazed

Much as I love the Burberry poncho, the silk map foulard is a more realistic proposition. I saw it IRL in Harrods last week (do head up to the new 6th floor Salon De Parfum by the way, it’s the ultimate olfactory experience) in the men’s department as it is indeed part of the Burberry Prorsum men’s AW14 collection.

At the show it was loosely tied over both shoulders, but what I like about this scarf is how thin and therefore malleable, it is. Continue reading

Farfetch looks east with Restir

1 Farfetch-Restir

Funny to think Farfetch.com has never had a Japanese store in its community of international retailers. Now it does, Tokyo based Restir is the winner of the Farfetch Superstore prize and its edit of upscale ‘indie’ brands has just gone on the site. Continue reading

This week is all about sharing the love for my fellow bloggers. I mentioned a while ago that Jane Cunningham from British Beauty Blogger has teamed up with M&S to launch a make-up range. It finally landed on counter last week. Continue reading

Who buys designer jewellery online?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Who buys jewellery online? It’s a funny one because you’d think it was such a no-no… for all sorts of reasons. Sizing for one – I never know what my ring size is. And security for another, I’m not sure I’d trust a £5,000 delivery coming through the post and being left with a neighbour (or abandoned on a doorstep as some carriers are wont to do). Then there’s the whole luxe factor; isn’t fine jewellery meant to be experienced in a luxury store with all the pampering that goes with it? Continue reading

1 Chinti-Parker-aw14

What could cheer up the prospect of autumn more than the arrival of new-season Chinti & Parker? Not much. The ethically-produced cashmeres and woollens are now routinely joined by dresses, skirts and blouses (not to mention easy-to-steal menswear). Feast your eyes… Continue reading

INTO THE GLOSS GETS GLOSSIER

Glossier-Glossier.com-beauty-products-into-The-Gloss

Is Into The Gloss entering into the beauty product space? It sure looks like it. Everyone’s favourite beauty site is leaking sneak previews of ‘Glossier’ on Insta here and on first glance it’s looking extremely enticing… UPDATE! IT’S JUST LAUNCHED! It’s starting with skincare, is fairly affordable and all the deets are at Glossier.com. (No international shipping yet but they’re working on it…) Continue reading

What next for Valextra? It’s a shame Design Director Alvaro Gonzalez has left the building, I thought things were going so well. It’s still one of my favourite artisanal luxury brands though – any guesses who’s in next? Continue reading

Matte or glow? Two new foundation favourites

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Burberry-Fresh-Glow-Fluid-foundation

This has been a big year for foundation launches but I still haven’t found a match for my holy grail Myface Mymix which is down to its final squirt.

Close though is Burberry’s Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid foundation (£35). Can I be honest? I wasn’t entirely convinced by Burberry’s beauty ambitions at first, so I tested this with lowish expectations. Readers – it’s a keeper. The texture is a moisturising satin fluid that comes out of a pump bottle (which is wayyy too big but I’ll let that pass). Continue reading

Highlights from Hermes SS15 at Paris Fashion Week

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jacques-Habbah-Dazed-Hermes-ss15

The end of a lovely chapter at Hermes ss15. I’ve enjoyed Christophe Lemaire’s vision at the house but I’m champing at the bit to see what Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski has in store too. Some called Lemaire’s final collection for Hermes a palate-cleanser* from the 70s overload seen pretty much everywhere else. Continue reading
