Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s the eve of London Collections: Men, so the latest DRG STYLE INDEX is a little bit menswear focussed. Here’s my ranking of the brands on my radar this week…

Brompton Cross: the revival

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

J Crew-Brompton-Cross-2

All of a sudden, Brompton Cross is back on my radar. The Conran Shop is flourishing again (seriously, you can do all your holiday shopping there in one mammoth swoop), Joseph is getting better and better and there’s an influx of international fashion arriving.

Acne and Jil Sander Navy appeared rather quietly not long ago, J Crew’s upper-end collections have recently arrived in Draycott Avenue (somewhat overshadowed by the pizzazz of Regent Street) and Carven opened the same week. Continue reading

It’s finally here and DRG contributor Alison Bishop has given it a thorough going over. Here’s the verdict on J Crew, London-style…

The Webster boutique owner, Laure Heriard Dubreuil talking about buying mens shirts in the Wall Street Journal resonated with me.

First look: UK September Vogue

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

As much as we all love digital, there’s still nothing that beats holding that all-important Vogue September issue in your hands. And then devouring it page by page (a breathless flick through first, then a more considered pace of page-turning). Continue reading
