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

1.OH MY DIOR!
Dior new Bond Street relaunch
My, what a week for Dior! The Cruise 2017 show was a mammoth feat of production (yes, I did follow the entire shebang via various influencers’ Snapchats), there’s a possible new designer announcement imminent (hint: Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri – hope it’s true) and the four-floor Bond Street maison finally opened its doors.

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: KENZO, NOT JUST A LABEL, APPLE

It’s a bit of a retail focus on the DRG STYLE INDEX this week. Here’s the latest weekly ranking of the brands buzzing on my radar…

1. KENZO X H&M

Kenzo X H&M collaboration launches 3rd November 2016
Thoughts on Kenzo for H&M, the latest of H&M’s collabs, launching in November? I think it’s going to be one of their better collaborations. Kenzo’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are experts at retail and marketing after all, which are arguably as important as the design elements in these mega collaborations. (more…)
