Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1) COULD CHANEL’S COCO CRUSH E-COMMERCE LAUNCH BE A GAME CHANGER FOR FINE JEWELLERY?
There’s more to last week’s news on Chanel planning to launch e-commerce. The big story this week is of a Net-a-Porter X Chanel digital pop-up that opens on Wednesday selling the new capsule fine jewellery line, Coco Crush. The simple shapes featuring Chanel’s signature quilting pattern in 18 carat gold will start at €1,970 for rings, going up to €19,000 for a cuff. What’s interesting (and clever) is that this lets Chanel dip a toe in the e-commerce waters with the help of the very best in the biz. Continue reading
Quick heads-up to say, if you’re Stateside and an Estée Lauder fan, do hunt down this special hot pink solid perfume compact of Modern Muse. I love a solid fragrance and this one has been specially created for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with 100% of the retail price ($49.50) going to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.

Nope, still not bored with this year’s fashion-art love affair. Which is just as well as it’s only set to intensify. Late October sees the big reveal of the Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton art museum in Paris (above), showcasing the LVMH corporate collection of art. The 126,000 square foot ‘glass cloud’ is rumoured to be the venue for the next Vuitton womenswear show, so expect your Instagram feed to be flooded with art-fashion-architecture amazingess of the highest order… Continue reading
Summer is when I get (a little bit) more adventurous with colour so I’m well into all the primary brights we’re seeing popping up everywhere. Rich royal blue is an easy choice for the colour-shy as it’s almost a neutral so I’d wear that in a bomber jacket or rain mac (I’m currently looking for the perfect single-breasted mac). My manicure of the moment is Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour in Impassioned, a candy apple red that can skew either formal or casual. I also can’t get enough of Kelly green, especially in a fun print (hello Mother Of Pearl shorts), while a sunny shade of yellow lends itself beautifully to accents – this jolly Fendi key fob for example. Finally, thank you Keep It Chic for alerting me to Thomas Maier’s Cruise 15 collection. You can’t buy it now but as inspiration for a relaxed red suit, it serves very nicely…
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
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
If you’re a Tory Burch fan, you’ll want to mark January 20th on your iCal. Joining Aerin and Michael Kors, it’s the latest cosmetics (and fragrance line) to arrive in the UK from the Estee Lauder beauty stable.
As with Aerin, Kors and even Tom Ford, it’s all about the angular packaging with golden accents. (Does Estee Lauder only have one lipstick mould?) But if you’re a Burch fan then I think you’ll love the distinctive orange and gold casing complete with double T insignia. British Beauty Blogger has the story here…
Be prepared to be officially gobsmacked by Estee Lauder’s exclusive solid perfume compacts for Harrods. Estee Lauder is famous for its inventive compacts but these have to be the best yet…
What do you get your mum for Mother’s Day? I don’t always have to worry about this one as my mum lives abroad and is usually pretty happy with a card, flowers and a phone call. But I think you can’t go wrong with something pretty or pampery in lovely packaging. Here are a few beauty ideas that I like in case you’re still stuck… Continue reading
