THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Fila, Sacai X Apple, Mulberry, Mr Hare, Cartier

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

Fila X Urban Outfitters
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…


2. SACAI X APPLE WATCH

Sacai Apple Watch
Whether or not you like the device, you’ve got to admit Apple knows how to choose design partners on the Apple Watch. Latest to guest on its Made for Apple Watch programme is Sacai, who re-imagined the watch as a hybrid of identity bracelet mashed up with a croc embossed band.


3. MULBERRY’S MAPLE TOTE

Mulberry Maple bag
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

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: CARTIER, MARI GIUDICELLI, LANVIN, PAUL SMITH, DOVER STREET MARKET

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

1. CARTIER X SOFIA COPPOLA
Sofia Coppola for Cartier
If, like me, you feel like you haven’t seen enough of Sofia Coppola lately, Keep It Chic has news. Apparently, Sofia Coppola has teamed up with Cartier as a ‘friend of the brand’. Whatever that means, I think I’ll like it…. (more…)

Vestiaire Collective – the one that got away*

Rei Kawakubo for Louis Vuitton

Given the chance to get your hands on a ‘must have’ piece you missed the first time around is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, how thrilling! On the other, decision paralysis takes hold – how the heck do you choose between the Rei Kawakubo for Louis Vuitton bag or the Margiela L’Incognito visor shades that got away?

As it happens, ‘the one that got away’ is the name of Vestiaire Collective’s latest campaign (more…)

New season fashion books

The History Of Modern Fashion Daniel James Cole and Nancy Deihl

Years and years and years ago, I remember gearing up for my first term at fashion college. We were given a list of things we needed to buy, which necessitated a trip to R. D. Franks in Market Place (off Oxford Circus) to stock up on essential books and magazines. (more…)
