Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. HELMUT LANG ARCHIVE
Helmut-heads, diarise November 15th! That’s when Resurrection is hosting a sale of iconic Helmut Lang pieces from the 90s to 2005. HELMUT LANG: ARTIFACTS will be available in-store and online at Resurrection Vintage.
2. SHISEIDO MADE A FILTER FOR YOUR SKYPE CALL
Not sure how I feel about Shiseido creating beautifying filters for business Skypers. Do we really look that bad?
3. SHU UEMURA X TAKASHI MURAKAMI
Beauty and art collabs are flourishing like Takashi Murakami’s pop art blooms. And the artist himself has just splashed his smiley-faced flower art on a limited edition Holiday line for Shu Uemura. If you’re in need of a new cleansing oil or the signature eyelash curler, you can get a Murakami-fied version HERE. (Alas, I can’t find it on any UK sites.)
4. ANTHROPOLOGIE, THE CONCEPT SUPERSTORE
Anthropologie is attempting to reinvent the department store, in its own inimitable way. Its newest outpost, Anthropologie & Co will be a 30,000 square foot concept store located in a former Barnes & Noble store in Walnut Creek, North California. Taking its experiential retail vision to the limit, the supersized Anthro will go large on shoes, beauty (featuring more than 90 brands including Sunday Riley and Eve Lom), bridal and home décor complete with fabric swatches and wallpaper sample books. Set to open on November 18th, it’s rolling the concept out to four other locations.
5. KENZO X H&M X JEAN-PAUL GOUDE
The Kenzo X H&M collab looks like one of the funnest high-low collaborations yet. Oh to have been at the launch in New York – I mean, Jean-Paul Goude, people! The collection launches on November 3rd.
