THE DRG STYLE INDEX: BARRIE, KILGOUR, HARVEY NICHOLS, A.P.C, MULBERRY

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

On this week’s DRG STYLE INDEX, these are the brands that caught my attention…

1. BARRIE TO LAUNCH READY TO WEAR (AND A STORE IS IMMINENT TOO)

Barrie-knitwear-Chanel-disneyrollergirl

The Made in Scotland ethos is gaining momentum with the launch of a new Barrie RTW collection next month. Designed by Chanel’s Odile Massuger using premium cashmere fibre, we’re promised twenty silhouettes merging clean lines with adventurous motifs and colours – I’m particularly intrigued by the description of handpainted porcelain buttons!

Kilian: luxury fragrance in clever packaging

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I love what the young perfume brand, Kilian is doing with fragrance and packaging right now. Combining experimental fragrance with multi-tasking accessories and an eco-consciousness, Kilian Hennessy’s (of the Hennessy cognac family) current scents come in refillable spray bottles of eau de parfum (£160) that are then packaged in white glossy cases.

Warehouse Christmas SOS film – recognise yourself?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Warehouse has upped its digital game considerably since relaunching its etail site a few months ago. As well as a much fresher looking site with the full complement of social sharing buttons, the British high street brand has embraced the power of the fashion film.

This sharply observed ‘Christmas SOS’ film, produced to promote its 90-minute delivery service (er – wow), is brilliantly executed and top contender to upstage last year’s Walk Of Shame viral (remember the work of genius from Harvey Nichols?).

Watch and cringe…

Curated retail: BeautyMART

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Editing, editing, editing. As any stylist or magazine editor knows, what you leave out is as important as what you leave in. And so in retail, we’re seeing a similar thoughtful curation taking place in order to stand out from competitors. Continue reading

Affordable luxury: Raoul and Club Monaco

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Is there such a thing as affordable luxury? You decide. Singapore brand Raoul has been on my radar for a while and I keep gravitating towards its bags. Continue reading

What’s new in digital fashion

Some digital fashion snippets that have caught my attention…

TOPMAN LAUNCHES ONLINE MAGAZINE

Topman’s digital zine, Generation launched last week. It’s an eclectic mix of culture and style and from my first look doesn’t seem to be about pushing product, it’s purely content driven. I find it a bit too visually chaotic but I like the variety of content. Continue reading

SS12 trend report: Harvey Nichols gets Kirchhoffed

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I’ve been on a bit of a press days sabbatical this season. PRs have not only spread SS12 press days across October, November and December (back in the day, it was just October), but generally had more events and launches than ever before. I guess competition for press and bloggers’ attention is fiercer than ever but it’s had the opposite effect; instead of ramping up my attendance and coverage, I’ve bailed out altogether. Continue reading

Disneyrollergirl’s picks for Time Out’s Best 100 shops in London

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Choosing my favourite shops for Time Out’s 100 Best Shops In London list wasn’t difficult. I’m not a big online shopper because I prefer to make really considered purchases and I find the whole store ambience and experience adds to the value of what I’m buying. My top five stores are the ones I visit on a regular basis, not just to buy, but also to ‘keep my eye in’ and research what’s out there. Continue reading

Harvey Nichols Secret Tees: the big reveal

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Thanks to everyone who bid on the wonderful one-off Secret Tees produced by some of the country’s best creative talent. Now I can reveal who designed what for Harvey Nichols’ Fashion’s Night Out auction, with all proceeds going to my favourite charity, Kid’s Company… Continue reading

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in pictures

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Did anyone go to Fashion Night Out? Wasn’t it a blast? I had so many things I wanted to go to, from checking out Lulu Kennedy’s ‘Honolulu’ at Liberty, to getting my nails did by Sophy Robson at Chanel, to falling whizzing round Rupert Sanderson’s roller disco. In the event, I mostly got waylaid in various spots around Bond Street shooting the breeze with every blogger in town…

Good to see Phillip Sallon back on the social circuit

Alcohol was served in anything but glasses: punch in a teacup at Moschino, cocktails in coconuts at Lulu Kennedy/Liberty and jam jar bevvies at Harvey Nichols

I spy an Hermes horsebox – with the longest queues ever for ‘bangle bowling’ (bowl a bangle into a scarf-covered riding hat and win a paper bangle!)

Rupert Sanderson was hilarious fun (but not so hilarious for poor Katie Chutzpah who sustained a fractured-elbow-shaped injury). Here’s a photo she took of me doing my best Olivia-Newton-John-in-Xanadu impression.

I loved Netaporter’s idea of a shoppable ‘window’ where punters could win prizes. Here’s my photo from London:

And here’s the NYC version:

And finally, to Harvey Nichols’ fashion fairground, a complete madhouse of London’s craftiest designers customising FNO tees, bags and anything else in sight (J W Anderson even stuck Harajuku stickers on a Celine bag and someone’s boots). My Secret Tees looked great of course and the bids are already stacking up. Feel free to bid if you fancy winning a one-off tee from one of London’s coolest creatives. All profits to Kids Company – yay!)
