Retail report: Selfridges ramps up its luxury ready-to-wear with a nod to Dover Street Market

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Selfridges-designer-galleries-celine

It feels like Selfridges has been tweaking its third floor Designer Galleries for ever! Finally its finished and the verdict is quite the A-Z of modern luxury fashion. In short, the Selfridges buy has been Dover Street Market-ified. (And  that sentence right there gets the award for clunkiest sentence of the year. Soz.) I still remember the third floor as it was eons ago – contemporary labels like Anglomania alongside A.P.C, Whistles and Joseph. Pffft, this is so not that. Contemporary and denim have all been shunted up to the fourth floor, leaving gleaming aisles of expensive statement-wear. Of course, I can’t actually afford any of it.

It’s a textbook exercise in taste and wealth though. Continue reading

A decade of Dover Street Market

1 MAIN DSM 10th Anniversary-Facade by RK (3)

Oh, what a busy year it’s proving to be for London’s Dover Street Market. This month marks its tenth year and to celebrate it’s doing what it does best, collaborating with its fashion friends to create more retail excitement than ever.

Let’s not forget, when Dover Street Market opened in 2004 it was the first store of its kind, a weird and wonderful melange of mega-brands, just-emerging designers and street wear – ever changing and always unpredictable. Twice a year it operates its ‘tachiagari‘, shutting up shop for three days while it installs a completely new vision for the new season.

This year, following its tachiagari in July, it’s shaken things up again by adding a scattering of ‘market stalls’ (complete with striped awnings) selling DSM souvenirs to delight the store’s avid retail tourists. Continue reading

What to steal from the menswear shows: Loewe SS15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jonathan Anderson’s new-look Loewe has has rave reviews so far, with its reworked logo, ad campaign and SS15 menswear all giddily received by the critics. For spring-summer 2015, Anderson’s inspiration came from pre-rave Ibiza references so it’s heavy on rustic-looking but luxurious fabrics and simple, bohemian shapes (given Anderson’s ultra-modern ambi-sexual treatment).

My standouts are the suede polo shirts, nappa biker jackets, soft suitcases and ‘Meccano’ Oxford shoes (which are on the site now). And I’m totally tying my scarves like this from now on…

Loewe introduces La Coleccion

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I admit I often choose my beauty and fragrance products for their packaging. Loewe has just launched Loewe Colleccion, four fragrances numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, available exclusively at Harrods. Isn’t the bottle a beauty? Each fragrance retails at £250 (no that’s not a typo) and the suede case, designed by creative director Stuart Vevers, is available for £3,500.

Loewe: I made this

Loewe:
Masters of Leather
on Nowness.com.

Loewe has done a lovely job of highlighting three of this year’s biggest macro trends – craft, heritage and luxury – in this short film by Matthew Donaldson for Nowness (ah ‘fashion film’, there’s another tick). Using Richard Avedon’s In The American West as a visual reference (oh to have a copy of this collectable tome), it’s a celebration of the leather workers’ graft and craft in creating the signature Amazona bag.

Loewe Flamenco bag

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When I first saw this ad on a computer screen the impact didn’t really come across, but in its rightful place on the shiny pages of Vogue, it jumped out. I love the colour combinations and cinematic lighting – although *yawn* does Mariacarla have to be naked? Continue reading

Nigel Shafran for Loewe

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Nigel Shafran is a name I haven’t heard on the fashion photography front for a while. Back in the day he was a regular on the i-D/Face/Vogue circuit but these days his focus is more art photography. He recently shot the new Loewe campaign in the streets of Madrid. Continue reading
