Club Monaco creates all-blogger look book (and launches it on Tumblr)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Club-Monaco-fall-Tumblr-lookbook

Club Monaco was an early adopter in curating inspiring content on its ‘Culture Club’ Tumblr. From fabulous architecture to offbeat coffee shops, since 2010 it has nailed the art of curating relevant content without ramming product down our throats. Plus its Tumblr is one of the few branded Tumblrs that I follow. (BTW, my beauty Tumblr is here…) Now it has achieved another first – the first blogger-cast Tumblr lookbook and a Club Monaco-branded Tumblr theme. Continue reading

Last chance: So Dior at Harrods

Gosh isn’t there a lot going on with retail right now? Online may be the all-powerful monster threatening the high street, but bricks and mortar stores are fighting back by ramping up the drama and excitement on offer.

This weekend is your last chance to get involved in the multi-sensory experience that is Dior at Harrods. Continue reading

Get yer sunnies on: House of Holland and Sunday Somewhere

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Henry Holland certainly knows how to build a brand. He’s the celebs’ favourite, has a coveted Debenhams range (don’t knock it, it’s most designers’ bread and butter) and his Pretty Polly tights sell in their thousands. Just in are these colour-drenched images of his new eyewear collection which lands at Browns and Houseofholland.com this week. Continue reading

Who is Aries?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Aries is a new name on my radar, although the names of its creators are not. Sofia Prantera was (one of) the brains behind Silas, the cult casualwear brand that made up quite a chunk of my late nineties/early noughties wardrobe, while Fergus Purcell’s Tonite label was equally influential at the time.

EXCLUSIVE: Who is the secret Chanel tweeter @CC_Linlithgow?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

On Tuesday night, coming home from a dinner, I was gripped by the tweets about Chanel’s Metiers d’Art show in Linlithgow, Edinburgh. So many of my Twitter followees were at the show, retweeting tweets from what I assumed was the official Chanel @CC_Linlithgow account. It certainly looked official from what I saw when I logged onto Twitter at home. This ten-day-old Twitter account had aggregated hundreds of Instagrams, Twitpics and nuggets of as-it-happens commentary from the models, press and guests at the show. But as I scrolled through the images, a story unfurled further back to include the entire ten-day build-up to the event, including atmospheric photos of the palace grounds and romantic Linlinthgow scenery.

Weekend in Paris: Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs at Les Arts Decoratifs

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Despite the intensive schedule of shows and fashiony events, I made a big effort to see some exhibitions in Paris. Of course, I had to start with a fashion one so off I went to the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition at Les Arts Decoratifs. As expected, I found myself more drawn to the first half of the exhibition which explores the innovation of luggage-maker Mr Louis Vuitton himself. This was a fascinating history and design lesson and showed great exhibits like the original ‘Never Full’ bag (below) and the trunk that turns in a bed. The giant animation was also quite something to behold. Continue reading

On advertising as editorial and Burberry’s SS12 campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

This time last year I was in the thick of researching an article for H&M magazine on the increasingly mainstream appeal of fashion advertising. I spent hours refreshing The Fashion Spot forums hungry for news of the emerging SS12 ad campaigns to ensure my summer 2011 feature was up to date. Continue reading

Balenciaga launches ecommerce site: “It’s almost like a daily magazine now: it has to be really alive”

Ever since reading WWD’s article earlier in the week, I have been checking and rechecking the Balenciaga website. It has now relaunched. Working with Wednesday-London, Balenciaga has created a site that marries a high spec retail experience* with engaging brand history, including archive images and (soon to come) video.
