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

Olivia-Kim-Nordstrom-coutesy-business-of-fashion

I keep reading about Nordstrom doing original things with digital and experiential retail and now I know why. Its director of creative projects is one Olivia Kim, formerly of Opening Ceremony, AKA queen of the clever collab and someone who just knows how to make retail exciting. Continue reading

The DRG STYLE INDEX has been on hiatus for a couple of weeks while Fashion Month took over. But it’s back with this week’s round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1. ON YOUR MARKS FOR MARQUES’ALMEIDA X TOPSHOP

marques-Almeida-topshop

Roll on October 9th. Marques’Almeida’s 68-piece collection for Topshop is looking pretty good, with all the M’A hallmarks intact. Shredded denim, delicious true-blue washes, an overall rough-n-ready aesthetic…watch this one fly. (P.S, if you’re eyeing up the parka, be fast, it’s predicted to go first…) Continue reading

Bella Freud Blank Canvas Collection for Fred Perry AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bella-Freud-Fred-Perry 1

Bella Freud certainly knows how to pick her collaborators. Recent years have seen her work with Christian Louboutin and Barbour and the latest is Fred Perry. You never feel like she has compromised her aesthetic for a quick buck and I think that’s something to be respected in these collab-a-minute times.

Here’s the Bella Freud X Fred Perry AW14 collection, it’s a timely rude girl inspired collection of snug-fitting pique polo shirts, sweater dresses, slogan sweaters (of course) and darling little berets. Continue reading

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

1. JEFF KOONS FOR H&M

Jeff-Koons-for-HM-handbag

So did you? Get your hands on the much-coveted Jeff Koons for H&M handbag? To celebrate the brand new H&M NYC flagship and the Jeff Koons retrospective at the Whitney, a one-off handbag adorned with Koons’ famous Balloon Dog was produced last week, sadly to the US market only. I wrote about it here. Continue reading

The DRG Style Index has a bit of an art theme running through it this week. Here’s my ranking of the brand stories that grabbed my attention…

1. GAP IS PARTNERING WITH FRIEZE ART FAIR
Alex-Katz-Gap-Frieze
This year, Gap has partnered with Frieze New York (opening May 9th) and Frieze London to produce exclusive merchandise in a ‘white cube’ setting that will double as a café. A joint effort with Visionaire, the US collab will produce limited edition tees from the likes of Alex Katz (above), Richard Phillips and Peter Lindbergh. Continue reading

proenza-schouler-MAC

DROP EVERYTHING! Can we please take a moment to admire the beauty that is this Proenza Schouler X MAC collection? The packaging is as lovely as the products with a psychedelic yet sophisticated degrade effect on the boxes, pencils and brushes, as well as on the blusher compact itself. This little lot just landed at Selfridges

Beauty bits: Tom Ford’s first face palette, Sam McKnight hair accessories, positive beauty talk and Coca Cola nails

FIRST LOOK AT TOM FORD’S FACE PALETTE

Tom Ford face palette

Last week I met with the PR for Tom Ford Beauty, where she arranged all the latest spring lip and nail colours before me. Most exciting was a first look at the new (and first ever) Tom Ford face palette (above) due in April. Even the MD of the store we were in snuck over from his meeting at the next table to get a peek. In the pics below you can also just see the Lip and Cheek Shimmers (bottom right) which also land on counter in April. Continue reading

Raf Simons X Sterling Ruby: An art-fashion clash made in heaven

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Raf-Simons-Sterling-Ruby

I could write a thesis-length post on Raf Simons and Sterling Ruby’s epic joint AW14 collection, but I won’t. Instead I recommend you read all about in Tim Blanks’ Style.com report. Or just enjoy the pictures. Suffice to say, the conceptual art student is alive and kicking on the catwalk and if you love collage, Pollock-meets-Clash paint splatters, Lichtenstein primary colours and provocative wordplay, then it’s all here for ya, wrapped up in dun-coloured cashmere and nubby tweed. Continue reading

Trainer news: Tom Ford, Adidas Stan Smiths, Nike RT, retail wars

We’re not even two weeks in and it’s already shaping up to be another good year for sneaker heads.

First, the surprise appearance of trainers (in thrice waxed leather or white velvet!) at Tom Ford’s AW14 menswear presentation. In fact the whole Tom Ford collection was casualised (below), so posh trainers aren’t too out of place…

London Underground produces some top fashion merch

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Roundel-London-Undergound 6

Andrew Bunney has done the seemingly impossible. That is, take a corporate, uncool brand, (albeit with a killer heritage) and turn out a highly desirable line of product. The result is Roundel, a collaboration with the London Underground, that presents T-shirts, jackets, shirts and even trainers as graphic product that will be as at home on the backs of tourists and cityproud Londoners as design-conscious youth. Bravo Mr Bunney! Continue reading
