Beauty news: & Other Stories – the beauty booty

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Everyone’s getting jolly excited about H&M’s new launch – & Other Stories. Pitched as a brand about ‘style’ rather than ‘fashion’, it’s been seeding videos for the last few weeks and launch day is almost upon us (8th March, Regent Street, London).

I’m interested to see what the beauty offer is like up close. Continue reading

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Just seen these ad images for the Maison Martin Margiela X H&M collection on KarlIsMyUnkle. Love them, especially the choice of models – Margiela has always been consistent is using an interesting, diverse mix of models. I’m sure this is London’s favourite casting agent Sarah Murray third down and Margiela favourite, Marie Sophie Wilson fourth down…

Rumoured: Maison Martin Margiela for H&M

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Twitter is abuzz with the rumours of H&M’s (allegedly) latest collab with Maison Martin Margiela. While I’m loving the idea of cheap-chic versions of Margiela trench coats, Tabi boots and L’Incognito sunnies, these days it’s not just about the product. There’s also the ad campaign, video and surrounding promotional activity to get excited about. So who do we think might be commissioned to work on those and what to expect? I’d love to see an accompanying Sophie Calle video or ad campaign (behind the lens, but why not in front of it as well) or perhaps Kirsten Owen as the face of the campaign. What about you?

The H&M AW12 menswear pictures are in and there’s an overriding trend leaping out already. Can you see what it is yet? Frankly I’m crazy about this Thom Browne too-short trouser look and it’s one I’ve been sporting for a while. Continue reading

Inside H&M’s summer magazine

The new H&M magazine is out and as usual it’s a cracking good read. Each issue has three 1000+ word features and this issue includes one of mine on the magic of fashion shows. That’s not the only reason it’s a good read though. Continue reading

What’s all the hoo-hah about River Island’s ‘blogger-inspired’ collection?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


There has been quite the brouhaha over River Island showing a ‘blogger-inspired’ range to the press at its AW12 press day. Consisting of statement accessories and clothes (think texture clashing, fearless colourplay, bold prints, embellished everything) a few style bloggers have taken umbrage at being thought of as people who just throw on gaudy mis-matchy outfits to get attention from streetstyle photographers or other bloggers. To this I say, lighten up! Keep calm, keep your head down and carry on. River Island (and H&M with its forthcoming Anna Dello Russo collab) are just thinking commercially with this idea. Because to achieve this look (which I’d say is a particular experimental-eclectic blogger look than a general blogger look) you do need to buy things in multiples. So River Island, H&M et al will maximise on sales of say, a top, a bag and three necklaces, rather than just one piece. It’s smart business thinking innit!

Having missed the press day and the chance to appraise the AW12 collection myself, I asked River Island’s press office for their thoughts. Senior press officer Melissa Collins says, “the blogger story is representative of a look that’s interesting, exciting, not afraid to experiment, not afraid to try looks that break boundaries and to push limits and fashion forward. Bloggers are ambassadors of street style which has become such a key element of the fashion industry today. As a brand, we are defining what real people are wearing and we feel that bloggers are the voice of the real people.”

I think the debate is quite an interesting one as it does beg the question, where does style blogging go next? I’m sure this one will run and run and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the debate discussed further in Grazia next week…

Gary Card designs pop-up Milan store for COS *VIDEO*

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Who doesn’t love COS? The Swedish brand may be the high street sister company of H&M but it has all the hallmarks of a higher end designer brand. It has its own aesthetic signature, an arty, design-conscious customer base and an intelligent point of view. It feels kind of secretive though, so here’s a wee peek into the brand as it launches a pop-up shop in Milan (designed by Gary Card).
