Gentlewoman style: how to wear primary colours

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Gentlewoman-style-Primary-Colours

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…

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…

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

Fendi-Bag-Bugs-harrods-Pop-Up

Playful luxe is the trend that just won’t die and for Christmas, Fendi has gone for it in a major way. Enter its Bag Bugs, which first made their appearance on the AW13 runway in all their funny-faced, Muppets-esque furry glory.

This month, Harrods has the exclusive on Fendi’s Bag Bugs capsule collection. Continue reading

Buy it now: Spring picks

I’m cautious with spring shopping as I don’t like to get too optimistic about the weather. So with the Fendi sleeveless blouse there’s a Thomas Tait leather jacket and to accompany the Theory shorts, an Ostwald Helgason sweatshirt. The Dries Van Noten lace-ups are an all-year-round option, as is the Chloe ring. (P.S, you might like to know that there’s free shipping on full-price merch over £100 at Farfetch until Thursday…)

Ma’am, your purse is open

It’s kind of stupid but I secretly like the wonkiness of these half-open-half-closed handbags. Fendi came first with its Peekaboo (now in umpteen sizes, finishes and colours), followed by Celine with this zippy number (above). It’s part of the whole ‘I’m so busy I just don’t care’ thing that’s going on and is popular with the type of girl that throws her coat over her shoulders because she doesn’t have a spare second to put her arms in the sleeves.

can the mule be cool?

Anna’s footwear of choice looks to be returning from the fashion doldrums. Spotted at Fendi and Prada, it’s the latest bad-taste shoe to be reincarnated as the subversively cool option. What do you say – eek or chic?

For the record, Carine says eek…

Introducing Browns’ ‘Melissa’ handbag (and some other nan bags I’m eyeballing)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


During my recent two-day residency at Browns, alongside the Club Monaco knits and Celine sunglasses, I couldn’t help cuddling a particular little lady-bag in pebbled grey leather. It turned out this classic, structured number is a new member of the Browns family – the very first own-label handbag. Continue reading

Oh for a rummage through the archives

Some of my favourite twitpics from the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Met Ball:


Madonna in Stella McCartney. This reminds me of a very similar gown I have by Stella McCartney from her Chloe days, in black with short puff sleeves. The cut is incredible and I think Madonna looks beautiful here Continue reading
