THE DRG STYLE INDEX: CHRISTOPHER KANE X NARS, CHANEL E-COMMERCE, MONTBLANC, HILLIER BARTLEY

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. GET READY FOR CHRISTOPHER KANE BEAUTY

First look at Christopher Kane for NARS and it’s suitably punchy. Big on neon-y pinks, the ten-piece ‘NEONEUTRAL’ collection is aimed at the fearless fashion-forward girl although there are some wearable nudes and corals in the mix. It lands on counter 15th April. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: THE CORNER, PORTS 1961, LVMH PRIZE, MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…


1. PORTS 1961 GETS A REFRESH

I was invited to the Ports 1961 press day last week to see the debut womenswear collection by new creative director Natasa Cagalj. The brand is undergoing a bit of a reinvention thanks to Cagalj, who is set on delivering wearable, adaptable wardrobe solutions for women. She’s doing this with fantastic coats, jackets and shirts that have a little bit of masculinity in their tailored construction but not too much. Continue reading

Nail news: Givenchy’s matte nails and Dior’s cult nail creme

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I can’t pretend I’m not thrilled that beauty is going through a natural phase for Spring. I much prefer peachy cheeks and a balmy lip to labour-intensive make-up theatrics. That said, it’s not all nude lips and smoky eyes, Givenchy’s spring palette is unapologetically candy-coloured with some fun tricks up its sleeves. Continue reading

Thoughts on the new Gucci

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Is Gucci about to have a Saint Laurent moment? Remember the brouhaha at first sighting of Hedi’s womenswear debut? It wasn’t pretty. (The reaction I mean, I liked the clothes.) The reaction was similarly confused when new Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele first showed his menswear collection in January. It was so removed from heritage Gucci, sexy Tom Ford Gucci or sophisticated Frida Giannini Gucci that lots of hands were wrung. Continue reading

Matchesfashion.com’s new spring drops

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Gotta love Matchesfashion.com at this time of year. You get the big-ass Matches glossy magazine through the post, plus all the shiny new SS15 deliveries. Among them are a couple of noteworthy new womenswear lines.

I’m excited about Kolor womenswear (the designer of Kolor happens to be Mr Sacai) and Matchesfashion.com’s just-launched own label, RAEY. RAEY is right on target with the clean-lined, boyish silhouettes that have dominated the 2010s, livened up with pops of pink and primrose yellow.

Plus, Matchesfashion.com’s denim focus is spot on for me; ‘forever denim’ in easy boyfriend shapesthrow-on shirting and gently lived-in kimono jackets (thank you MIH Jeans). Shop away below…

Beauty trial: Crème de la Mer discovery collection

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl



Crème de la Mer
, the holy grail of skincare – a load of snake oil or worth the hype? Because there is a lot of hype around this brand. I’ve tried (and been converted to) The Lip Balm (£42) and The Intensive Revitalizing Mask (£105), both of which deliver excellent results. But the legendary crème had until recently evaded me… well, hello, it’s £105 for the smallest pot! Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: ALL SAINTS, LOUIS VUITTON, GUCCI

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.ALLSAINTS IS ALL GROWN UP

I’ve been tracking AllSaints’ gradual transformation for a while now and wow, the metamorphosis is complete! Its latest Instagram campaign, #HappyMondays is really very cool, a celebration of its ‘Iconic’ leather jacket worn by up and coming models and tastemakers who lend their own personality and style cred to the pictures. Continue reading

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: CAROLINE ISSA FOR NORDSTROM, LISA ELDRIDGE FOR LANCOME, A DETACHER, JOAN DIDION FOR CELINE

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. FIRST LOOK AT NORDSTROM SIGNATURE & CAROLINE ISSA

This week we got a first look at Nordstrom Signature & Caroline Issa, the collection that Issa has produced with the US department store. Vogue has the scoop here (and I have my eye on this timeless leather coat). The collection launches on February 9th and will come out four times a year. Continue reading

First look at Chanel Burlington Arcade – the beauty boutique

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Oh yikes, Christmas is only four days away and the cut-off for most online deliveries has pretty much passed. This article in the Evening Standard made me chuckle as I’m such a grumbler about the inconvenience of online shopping, it just isn’t quite there for me yet. So if you still have shopping to do, there’s no option than to hit the stores. And this is where Chanel Burlington Arcade comes in.

Burlington Arcade is quite the prettiest shopping arcade in London. There’s been a bit of a rebranding of it lately, it’s become more of a mini Bond Street, with luxury newcomers such as Barrie knitwear and Maison Michel (both owned by Chanel) moving in, and last Friday’s opening of the latest Chanel beauty boutique.
