What to steal from the menswear shows: Saint Laurent SS15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Saint-Laurent-Ss15-DazedMagazine

Leaving aside if there’s anything ‘new’ being said at Saint Laurent, on a basic ‘want’ level there’s plenty I found to love from the menswear SS15 show. Admittedly, the menswear appealed more than the women’s pieces, but then I’ve always had a thing for Cuban-heel boots and rocker jeans and those ultra-thin scarf arrangements. Continue reading

The DRG Style Index: COS, GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY, MANSUR GAVRIEL, RAF SIMONS X ADIDAS

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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

1. COS X SERPENTINE GALLERIES

Cos-shoes-serpentine-galleries

COS is marking its collab with the Serpentine Galleries with a special pair of shoes. Digging through the archive, it has reworked a classic Oxford with a stepped in back, with sales revenue donated to the Serpentine Trust. A good enough reason to invest, no? Buy them online or at the Regent street store… Continue reading

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…

TORY BURCH BEAUTY IS GROWING

Tory-Burch-lipsticks

The Tory Burch empire continues to expand. This summer sees sixteen shades of lipstick added, an upgrade on the signature pinky nude shade. Also joining the Tory Burch Beauty family: a bath/shower gel, a body lotion and a body cream, all lightly infused with the citrus floral notes of the Tory Burch fragrance. Buy the lipsticks at the Tory Burch store in Bond Street and the body products at Harrods. Continue reading

What to expect from Prada womenswear 2015

Prada menswear ss15 Prada womenswear resort 2015 Dazed

I always like the sneak previews of womenswear that Prada shows on its menswear runway. As the men’s collections are shown a full three months ahead of women’s it gives us a good idea of the direction, not just for Prada but for fashion overall*.

This collection led us back to Miuccia’s 60-70s roots, with a more everyday look than her sometimes fantastical offerings. It also reminded me a lot of 90s Prada. The camel sweater, rigid denim and crystal-adorned slingbacks get my vote… Continue reading

Topman Design SS15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Is it just me or did the Topman Design SS15 show at LC: M feel like Madchester-meets-Britpop through an Elizabeth Peyton filter? Gorgeous colour palette, psychedelic print-clashing, sensitive-boy casting, floppy flares and wayward moptop haircuts. That’s your indie-boy look sorted for 2015…

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: LA GARCONNE, HERMES, LONGCHAMP, SHINOLA

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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

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)…?

Buy it now: the summer sale edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Nigel-Shafran-Vogue

Bam! Nothing for ages, then all the sales start at once! Net-a-Porter, Matchesfashion, Liberty, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols all started their sales last week. I’ll be cherry picking my way through but to start with, here’s a quick pick of my current highlights. There’s a ton of Miu Miu and Isabel Marant on sale at Net-a-Porter but be warned, those sizes will go fast (there’s currently only one of these Miu Miu skirts left).

If you’re not over Rockstuds, Valentino’s leopard-spot flats are a bit different and now selling at 30% off at Matchesfashion. That Marc Jacobs ‘Coke-ribbon’ sweatshirt? It’s still kicking around and is 40% off at Net-a-Porter – yours for £720 (but there’s only one size left). And if you’re a lover of McQueen handbags, this red skull-padlock beauty can be yours for £470.01 at Liberty with 30% off. Shop the edit below…

Editorial shoot: Girl with a Dior earring

1 Dior-pre-fall-2014-disneyrollergirl-exclusive shoot

What to do when Dior calls and asks if you’d like to interpret its fall 2014 collection Disneyrollergirl-stylee? First you grab your creative collaborator, (thank you photographer Emma Miranda Moore), then you descend on the Dior showroom, making a beeline for all those epic accessoriesthat knitted neck-warmer, those Mise En Dior tribal earrings, the moonscape scarf, bejewelled necklaces and the newest version of my favourite Grand Bal Plisse Soleil watch. Plus of course, a few select clothing choices to go with.

The fall 2014 collection is Dior’s equivalent to pre-fall but there are killer pieces amongst the commercial numbers. The silk leopard-spot coat is as couture-fabulous as you’d expect in its cut and print but its extravagant volume is even more striking when worn as casually as a dressing gown (subtext: ‘I woke up like this’). Ditto the silk slip dress with its integrated baby blue cardigan; the most relaxed evening dress you ever saw or the ultimate in decadent nightwear? You decide. And in yet another attempt to deconstruct Dior a little, we have Raf’s ultimate ode to his beloved youth culture, the MA1 as a 3-way coat that unzips at the waist to become a jacket and skirt of New Look-esque proportions. Be assured, this is not your mother’s Dior…
