THE DRG STYLE INDEX: OSMAN X AMAZON FASHION, JOHN LOBB, H&M, SIMONE ROCHA X J BRAND, KURT GEIGER

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. OSMAN FOR AMAZON FASHION

Someone is giving Osman an almighty great push on the PR and marketing front as he seems to be popping up everywhere at the moment. I just noticed this Osman collection on Amazon.co.uk and surprisingly, it looks really luxe and beautiful. Amazon has tried hard to sell high end brands on its site but it never quite achieves the Net-a-Porter aesthetic that I’m guessing it’s aiming for. Until now. Continue reading

Charlotte Olympia gets serious

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s a tiny peek at my Charlotte Olympia SS15 press day highlights. The way out west theme offers these cactus super-wedges and the kitty flat realised as a moccasin – there’s seriously no end to the kitty obsession… Continue reading

It’s all about the Burberry map scarf…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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

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

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. Continue reading

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

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

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 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’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

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

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
