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…
2. SACAI X 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
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.
