Joseph is one of those brands that doesn’t get a lot of shouty media attention but lots of people rely on. It’s just added an excellent shoe component to the line-up that’s a mix of boyish favourites and walkable glove shoes.
I especially like the vegetable tanned, crepe-heeled boots in classic colours from maroon, to tan, to black. And the loafers are a great unisex staple that happen to be enjoying a fashionable moment (but won’t look wrong when the fashion moment passes).

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. FEELING THE FILA LOVE
So you liked and loved Gosha’s homage to 80s casuals, yes? And now you want a Fila T-shirt? I don’t blame you, that’s how these things work. My guess is Fila will find itself miraculously anointed with a halo of cool overnight. Here’s the latest Fila drop at Urban Outfitters for starters…

3. MULBERRY’S MAPLE TOTE
While shopping in Westfield (yep, I secretly love a mall), I tried out the Mulberry ‘Maple’ tote bag. This is what I consider ‘proper’ design, it’s a decent size, has adjustable straps and a contrasting-coloured outer pocket that can be detached and used as a clutch. The colourways are sublime, in rich classics of burgundy, royal blue and bottle green. (Buy it here.) It’s good to see Mulberry’s fortunes on the up again, with pre-tax profit of £6.2m for the year ending in March, up from £1.9m in the previous year.
4. MR HARE’S MARKDOWNS
Sale season is properly upon us and Mr Hare is gifting us a load of mark-downs on his women’s shoes. Snap up a high top girls’ sneaker here.
Oooh so much bemusement from the not-young fashion contingent re Gosha Rubchinskiy! I get it. I struggle sometimes too, but you just have to supplant your own knowledge and references for the mindset of young people for a change. (more…)
