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!)

Secret Teeeees!




FNO Secret tees: they’re here!

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is almost upon us and I said I’d give you the final low down on my Secret Tees project with Harvey Nichols. Well ta-da… here it is! I asked Sophy Robson, Dr Noki, Bip Ling, Quentin Jones, David David, Fred Butler and Yang Du to create a one-off T-shirt to be auctioned by Harvey Nichols for FNO, with all proceeds going to Kids Company.

The Curated Store

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Last Friday saw the latest incarnation of Topshop’s Edited space in Oxford Circus and Manchester. Susie Lau (AKA Bubble) is the latest ‘taste maker’ to select her pick of TopShop’s strongest pieces to sit in their own area of the store for time-poor, fashion-forward customers to snap up.

Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out: The Lowdown (plus my contribution)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


What am I looking forward to on Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out? Jeez, where to start? At the Vogue bloggers’ preview last Wednesday morning, I chatted to Alex Shulman and what seemed like half the Vogue staff about their magnificent plans for September 8th. Continue reading

SECRET TEES: Disneyrollergirl and Harvey Nichols for Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Pinch me now! Vogue’s Fashion’s Night out is fast approaching and I’ve managed to wangle a wee project with Harvey Nichols. I’ve rallied some of my favourite fashion creatives to design/print/customise a one-off tee to be showcased at FNO on September 8th, then auctioned on EBay afterwards. I’m especially pleased as all proceeds will go to Kids Company, a charity that I have supported for a while.

The twist is that the identity of each T-shirt’s designer won’t be revealed til the auction finishes. (Although um, it might be quite easy to guess one or two…) The deadline for the finished tees to arrive is fast looming, so watch this space as I’ll be revealing all the names of the designers here…

There are also a zillion things happening in London on Fashion’s Night Out itself, which this year extends from W1 (hello Rupert Sanderson roller disco) to Knightsbridge to Covent Garden. Have you made plans yet?

Aquascutum vacates Regent Street. Harvey Nichols in?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


The papers report that Aquascutum is seeking buyers for its Regent Street flagship store. In the frame according to The Independent are Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, Superdry and Harvey Nichols’ new Beauty Bazaar. Who do we think should be the new occupant? I’m rooting for Harvey Nichols. Great Portland Estates is trying to rebrand Regent Street as a rival to Bond Street, so a luxury beauty retailer looks like the most appropriate fit. Plus there isn’t much in the way of high end beauty in this neck of the woods (nearest competitors are Liberty, Space NK in Broadwick Street and Boots in Piccadilly Circus). As far as I’m concerned, Abercrombie can stay where it is in Savile Row, while Hollister and Superdry *gag* are far more Oxford Street or Bluewater.

Alarmingly, the Independent also mentions that Hollister and Superdry have made unsolicited approaches for the National Geographic Store across from Aquascutum in Regent Street. How very dare they! I wish these pushy purveyors of overpriced, soulless streetwear would leave my beloved retail space well alone.

From Hello Kitty to Hi Panda

Back in ‘my day’, Japan – OK, Tokyo – was the epicentre of all things creative, cool and youth culture-y. Off-radar designers, collectible trainers, ‘kawaii’ cartoon characters, they could all be found centred in the streets of Shibuya. But now? Continue reading

IT’s OPEN! Harvey Nichols and Lula’s pop-up shop

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When Harvey Nichols announced its rejigging of the fourth floor in January, I was full of hope. Its press blurb promised a ‘concept store feel’ with exhibitions, installations and constantly evolving product lines. Well so far it’s nice enough but I wouldn’t call it constantly evolving. Continue reading
