THE DRG STYLE INDEX: The Cords & Co, Farfetch, MAC, Re/Done, Maison Trudon and more!



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


1. THE CORDS AND CO

The Cords & Co classic premium corduroy brand

NARS X CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG collaboration

File this under collabs I never expected to see. NARS has collaborated with French beauty minimalist Charlotte Gainsbourg on a make-up collection. It’s suitably classic, with smoky eye shadows, berry-hued cheek tints, a Hydrating Glow Tint and a kohl liner in moody shades of grey, moss green and navy. I won’t lie, it sounds beautiful in a discreet, not-very-NARS kind of way. (more…)
