DUSAN: fashion’s best-kept secret

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Dusan-aw14

How have I not heard of Dusan before? I discovered it two days ago on a rail at The Shop Of Bluebird while prepping for a shoot – luxe tabard-esque layers that nod to The Row and Chloe in refined fabrics and muted tonal colours (with prices to match).

Amelia, the Bluebird PR told me that the collection pretty much sells itself – “we have complete sell through every season”. And she flagged up the coats especially, “every time I walk past, there’s someone trying one on”. I did some Googling and I discovered it’s a 15-year old brand, designed by Serbian-born Dusan Paunovic, based in Milan. And the best bit? Paunovic is a proud celebrity-avoider. Continue reading

Gentlewoman style: Sofie D’hoore AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Sofie-Dhoore-aw14 1

Sofie D’Hoore is a new name on my radar which I discovered in Fenwick this week. It’s one of those stealth luxury lines, in the same vein as A.P.C, Studio Nicholson, Celine and Margaret Howell. I really like the understated styling. And the coats. Which I tried on (all of them) and they were perfect. Continue reading

Oh Dior! The new watches have landed – just in time for the ‘Ramadan Rush’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

DIOR-VIII-GRAND-BAL-PLISSE-SOLEIL-STEEL-MOP-AND-DIAMONDS-36MM STEEL BRACELET Front large

“Women are the future of watches, there’s huge potential in women’s watches that is only half exploited today.” So said Jean-Claude Biver, head of LVMH’s watch unit earlier this year. He must be rubbing his hands this month as the summer influx of middle-Eastern customers arrive to shop up a storm at our luxury department stores.

Just arrived at Harrods in time for the so-called ‘Ramadan rush‘ is the Dior VIII Montaigne collection. Continue reading

Editorial shoot: Slip it to me

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

There’s a time and a place for logo-waistband cotton smalls… but this isn’t one of them. No, this is the time for sweet nothings, lace fripperies and sheer silk sets, preferably in neon-accented colours or playful floral prints. I scooped up a caseful of Agent Provocateur goodies for my latest Disneyrollergirl editorial shoot, with Chiara Romagnoli behind the lens. If you’re in the mood for bright smalls, I recommend the candy-coloured lace bras, lovely under sheer blouses or summer’s indispensible white boyfriend shirt.

The bodysuits are nothing short of fabulous, whether frilly and bohemian, or gamine in black ruffles. And should you be on the lookout for decadent nightwear-slash-loungewear, then I can highly recommend the signature satin pyjamas – beautifully cut and seductive as hell…

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…

So the small, discreet, exclusivity rule doesn’t count when it comes to China. Hello Céline fashion show in Beijing! Céline staged a big-ass fashion show in a celeb-packed venue in Beijing’s art district last week to showcase its AW14 collection. The likes of pop star Faye Wong (above) arrived properly attired the Céline way with mannish coat robed over the shoulders. Why the fanfare from this usually reserved brand? Continue reading

Queene and Belle: Highland stylin’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Queen-and-belle-ss14 1

If I were a magazine editor, I would be complaining that you can hardly see the clothes in these Queene & Belle look book pictures. But it’s not just about the individual pieces, it’s also about the mood and an aesthetic. So personally I’m all in favour of this lighthearted Scottish knitwear brand and its thrown-together styling…. Continue reading
