It’s all about the Burberry map scarf…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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. You can fold it, twist it, drape it etc very easily and essentially, do a million things with it. And of course, should your satnav fail, you could even use it to work out your route home from Bayswater to Vauxhall…

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: NORDSTROM, GAP, MULBERRY, COACH

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. NORDSTROM’S SECRET WEAPON

Olivia-Kim-Nordstrom-coutesy-business-of-fashion

I keep reading about Nordstrom doing original things with digital and experiential retail and now I know why. Its director of creative projects is one Olivia Kim, formerly of Opening Ceremony, AKA queen of the clever collab and someone who just knows how to make retail exciting. This interview on Business of Fashion caught my eye…


2. MASSIMO VITALI FOR GAP X FRIEZE

Gap-Frieze-Massimo-Vitali-sweatshirt

Frieze London has been and gone in a flash! As with Frieze New York, Gap worked with Frieze and Visionaire on a range of artist collaboration sweatshirts that were sold at the fair. I didn’t manage to get to Frieze so I’m gutted to have missed out on this Massimo Vitali sweatshirt, but rumour has it they may appear in select Gap stores this week.


3. IS BLUE FARRIER IN NEXT AT MULBERRY?

Blue-Farrier-Mulberry-Phil-dunlop

I wondered where Blue Farrier might be heading next after it was announced last week that she has left her post as creative director of Issa. Rumours suggest she could in the frame for the Mulberry top creative gig since Emma Hill’s departure (ages ago now). Please let it be true! Farrier has a similar eye to Hill when it comes to youthful luxe and I think she really understand British heritage done in a modern way. Others in the frame are Johnny Coca (at Céline) and Hannah MacGibbon (ex Chloé). Farrier was also at Chloé for a while, back in the Phoebe Philo days. Funny (or perhaps intentional) how all roads lead to Phoebe and Chloé, no?


4. COACH x PEANUTS

Coach-Peanuts-Snoopy
Collaborations with cult cartoon characters are nothing new, however I do like this one. Two American icons come together in the form of Coach and Peanuts. Coach is making an effort to cement itself as a brand with its finger on the pulse, so its Peanuts collab features luxurious leather accessories embossed with Charles Schulz’s famous sketches. For the uber-fan, there’s the limited edition leather Snoopy dolls. Any takers? The collection lands in the UK on November 1st.

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: HELMUT LANG PERFUME, LONGCHAMP THE BOOK, GALLIANO THE CONCEPTUALIST

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. HELMUT LANG PERFUME RETURNS

Helmut-lang-perfume-returns

Woah, big story of the week for me is this one. Helmut Lang the original fragrance is back! And with the proto-minimalist packaging intact too. Not sure where we can buy it in the UK, but it’s being sold on the Helmut Lang US site right now. Continue reading

Gentlewoman style: Bally AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bally-Aw14-Kirsten-Owen

Can we take a minute to appreciate the new-look Bally, under the creative direction of Pablo Coppola? Emphasising the Bally ‘codes’ of precision and craftsmanship, there’s a focus on grown up wardrobe staples with a slightly relaxed flair – tailored trousers, boxy handbags, mannish coats, boyfriend shoes…

The ‘gentlewoman’s corner’ bag is my favourite, with its lopped-off corner. Continue reading

Shinola watches arrive at Net-a-Porter

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Shinola-watches

Shinola klaxon! Yummy new Shinola watches have just landed at Net-a-Porter. The Detroit-based brand is getting a lot of attention at the mo for its leather goods, paper goods, watches and own-brand cola (called Shinola Cola obvs).

I like the classic understatement of these. They’re just masculine enough, without looking overly butch. I like the size too. I have tiny wrists so I can’t get away with those gigantic dinner plate watches that everyone loves. You can buy them HERE.

Buy it now: Milli Millu AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Milli-Millu-Midi-Zurich

Milli Millu’s new-season bags are a little smaller than their predecessors. I own the full-sized Zurich in black calf but its new younger sister, the Midi Zurich (above) is just as useful but slightly more transportable. And the azure or berry grain leathers are a great option if you want to step out of your black-grey-khaki comfort zone (hell yes!). Continue reading

Burberry’s personalised ponchos

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Burberry-monogram-Poncho

It’s barely September and already Burberry Prorsum-esque blanket ponchos are all over the high street. How much faster can fashion get? Burberry has a card up its sleeve though, in the form of its monogramming service, which kicks off this week. Continue reading

Perfect pairing: Mansur Gavriel and Il Bussetto

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Mansur-Gavriel 3Il-Bussetto-Card-Holder

Could there be anything chicer than vegetable tanned leather right now? Those saturated colours, that unmistakable polish? Mansur Gavriel thinks not. The brand is all the rage at the moment, for its pared-back totes and bucket bags. This article in the LA Times last week explains its success. Simple, modern shapes, a reasonable price point and their signature contrast-coloured innards contribute, but the leather is a key factor. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: BURBERRY, RAF SIMONS, MCM, CHANEL, LYST

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. BURBERRY WINS THE #ALSICEBUCKETCHALLENGE

As with all pop culture phenomena, there’s a bit of a debate raging around the #alsicebucketchallenge. Sure, it’s a great vehicle for self promotion, but if it raises awareness and cashola then who cares? One of my favourites was Saks Fifth Avenue’s Marigay McKee (AKA the goddess of grooming) who then nominated retail rivals Bergdorf’s, Barneys and Bloomingdale’s. Naturally, Burberry utilised its iconic trench (clever Burberry), and here’s the Topshop team taking on the challenge having been nominated by ASOS. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: WANT LES ESSENTIELS DE LA VIE; MAC X BROOKE SHIELDS; DIET COKE X ASOS

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1. WHAT WOMEN WANT

WANT-Les-Essentiels-de-la-Vie-womens

Get ready for another stealth-luxe handbag line, this one’s coming from WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie. The minimalist menswear accessory brand now has a women’s leather range, currently on sale exclusively at Barneys. “Our female fans have been egging us on to unleash this for a long time. There was definitely a pent-up demand for it,” co-founder Byron Peart told Style.com. Continue reading
