Meet Christian Louboutin’s Madame Mouse

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I’m not-very-secretly relieved to see the demise of the monopoly of the ‘plat-heel’ shoe. Those overstated stilettos with a stacked platform (also known as stripper heels) have just become ubiquitous on the high street to the point that it’s almost impossible to find high heels with normal soles. Well that’s slowly changing. Continue reading

On K-Stew and her Cartier Juste Un Clou

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

You may have seen the pictures of Kristen Stewart looking very grown up in Victoria Beckham’s tangerine dress and Louboutin Decollettes. But did you spot the bracelet? Of late, Stewart has switched up her grungy Converse-with-everything image for something way more pap-worthy, right down to the smallest detail. In this case, she’s become surgically attached to Cartier’s iconic Juste Un Clou (‘just a nail’) bracelet, the  gold ‘bent nail’ that was reissued earlier this year from the depths of the Cartier vaults.

Menswear focus: stylish Londoners get suited and booted at Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Selfridges

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I literally can’t keep up with all the menswear retail goings-on in London this autumn. Just opened in Knightsbridge is another shiny new Burberry store (above), this time focussed on menswear. Craftsmanship and technology are given equal attention, with the store itself built by British stonemasons, carpenters, cabinet makers etc and over 50 speakers and 100 screens installed to engage the customer with digital experiential content.

Harrods’ Disney Christmas

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Further to yesterday’s Chanel post on the subject of the ‘Disneyfication’ of luxury retail;  I hear that Harrods will be Disney-themed this Christmas. Swarovski was the brand partner last year and this year promises another fantasy-filled extravaganza beyond our wildest dreams. Think windows displaying one-off gowns for Disney princesses by the likes of Valentino and Versace, a fourth-floor Disney pop-up boutique, plus a special focus on Disney’s Cinderella to tie in with the global high-def launch of the animated Cinderella on Blueray.

In our modern cross-pollinating world, this is the perfect way for film, fashion and retail to collide to benefit all parties. (And somewhere in the mix there must be a magazine media partner ready and waiting with an Aurasma app to tie it all together. Harper’s Bazaar perhaps?) Disney has upped its fashion collabs considerably recently. I loved the Mawi jewellery, and the Cinderella Louboutins sound promising. Of course, I’m still holding out for a Louis Vuitton Disney collab. It’s got to happen soon, hasn’t it?

Buy it now: Autumn drops

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Sad but true: I have the heating on in July. Retailers are taking advantage by pumping out their early fall merchandise – jumpers, jackets and coats – to compensate for the lack of summer pick-up. You can’t blame them, winterwear makes more money than summer because knits cost thrice as much as tees. Ah well, here’s my early fall fantasy shopping list…



ABOVE LEFT TO RIGHT:
TOP: J W Anderson top, £360; Maison Martin Margiela jacket, £599; Christian Louboutin shoes, £495
MIDDLE: Chloe sweater, £575; Balenciaga skirt, £419; Acne jacket, £850
BOTTOM: A.P.C. blouse, £165; Chloe boots, £743; Isabel Marant sweater, £265

What’s new in digital fashion

Some digital fashion snippets that have caught my attention…

TOPMAN LAUNCHES ONLINE MAGAZINE

Topman’s digital zine, Generation launched last week. It’s an eclectic mix of culture and style and from my first look doesn’t seem to be about pushing product, it’s purely content driven. I find it a bit too visually chaotic but I like the variety of content. Continue reading

Walkable heels: Louboutin’s Mistica

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I wrote about walkable Loubutins last year for Lyst but had never been able to pin down Sofia Coppola’s exact model. (The press office deduced that these were an old style – typical.)  Instead, I’ve discovered the next best thing, the Mistica, which has a sensible 60mm heel and low cut toe box. Obviously, the flash of red on the sole is what gives these their va va voom. Without, it would leave a rather plain court shoe but I guess that’s the power of the Louboutin signature for you! Mistica is a great shoe for daytime power meetings if you want a bit of elevation but don’t have a Wintour-style town car at your disposal. I’d wear them with my Club Monaco 7/8th trousers and a 3.1 Phillip Lim blouse.

Alas, I can’t find these online in the UK (Louboutin’s ecomerce operation is in the planning stages) but you can buy from the US Louboutin site or from Harrods (£375).
