THE DRG STYLE INDEX: BELLA FREUD, CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, UNIQLO, J CREW, BURBERRY, L’OREAL

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1. BELLA FREUD – THE SHOP

2. LOUBOUTIN LIPSTICKS ARRIVE THIS WEEK

Louboutin Lipsticks
…And Selfridges has the exclusive. If you’re ready to splash £60 on a lippie please can I be your BFF, then get to Selfridges on September 1st.


3. UNIQLO X LEMAIRE

Lemaire X Uniqlo look book
The full look book for UNIQLO X LEMAIRE is out and for me it’s all about the square cut knits and men’s coats. See the other looks here. (P.S is anyone else getting COS vibes from the micro site design?)


4. J.CREW BACK TO BASICS

J Crew Regent Blazer

5. DESIGN YOUR OWN BURBERRY SCARF

Burberry scarf bar

“I am not gorgeous, I never was, but I was always OK-looking and I’m keen to stay that way…I hope I can inspire other women towards greater confidence by making the most of their natural good looks. We are all worth it!”

Is Into The Gloss entering into the beauty product space? It sure looks like it.

It’s starting with skincare, is fairly affordable and all the deets are at Glossier.com. (No international shipping yet but they’re working on it…) (more…)
