Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Sixties, sixties, sixties, sixties. Sick of them yet? Well get used to it, because it’s all you’ll be hearing about from now until eternity. The ’60s is the big fashion story for ss13 (ref Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Moschino for starters) and there’s already a rich well of original inspiration to draw from in the new books, films and exhibitions launching right now … Continue reading

Wes Anderson on creativity, collaboration and independence

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Enjoyed this piece on Wes Anderson in the Wall Street Journal magazine. I love the guy and his films but don’t really know much about him. This gives a look into his mindset and thoughts on creativity and film making. I’m seeing Moonrise Kingdom tomorrow…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When Jim Shi first tweeted a photo of Valentino’s lace espadrilles from the ss12 runway, I thought it was tres decadent. I mean really, who buys lace espadrilles? I thought they were just for the show but how wrong I was. Not only have they gone into production, you can buy them here and watch the making-of video. Enjoy…

Bill Cunningham New York is here!

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I saw a preview of Bill Cunningham New York and loved it.

The film is now on general release in the UK and Ireland. You can see screening dates and times here.

Tom Munro has shot a lush editorial for Vanity Fair featuring Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy as Wallis and Edward Simpson. As promised, the costumes are stunning. Madonna hired her longtime stylist and celebrated costume designer Arianne Phillips to recreate the Simpsons’ revered style for the film W.E, which looks at the couple’s relationship with modern day parallels.
