London Fashion Week SS15 highlights: Day 3

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Rejina-Pyo-ss15

Yesterday was my favourite LFW day in terms of the designers I love. Preen, Toga, Topshop and Margaret Howell all rank high on my radar.

Preen veered off on an ultra-bright tangent compared to the monochrome minimalism of some of the shows we’ve seen so far. I liked the starker, print-free pieces, especially these jackets with the primary-coloured zips…

Funny isn’t it… You could spend thousands on flying superstar teams to exotic locales for a mediocre campaign or stay put and shoot these beauties in your own factory. Here’s the SS14 Margaret Howell campaign shot by regular collaborator Koto Bolofo… Continue reading

London Fashion Week AW14 highlights day 3

Topshop-Unique-Aw14 6

As much as we all love a Pilotto print or a Kane curveball, for day-to-day most editors I know are happiest in a Margaret Howell sweater or the perennial favourite ‘crisp white shirt’. These we got this morning (in *gasp* – a new, bigger venue) with corduroy tailoring and full skirts, accessorised with calf length socks and midi heels…

Gap Styld.by: double denim

1 Gap-Styld-By-Disneyrollergirl-double-denim

Of all my Gap Styld.By outfits, this is the one I’ve been wearing the most. Double denim is still sniffed at in most mainstream circles but I think if you wear it in matching or obviously contrasting colours/shades, then it can work really well.

I’m wearing Gap’s ‘Sexy Boyfriend’ jeans with a classic Gap denim jacket. Continue reading

Buy it now: Nostalgic sandals

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Church's

Hello sunshine! Finally, the sweaters are boots are off and my toes can bask in the warmth of summer. Can there be a better feeling? To celebrate, I’ve cracked open the Church’s Henrika sandals that have been sat in a box for 2 months. That’s the problem with buying summer things in London, you’re never quite sure you’ll get to wear them. I’m all about nostalgic flat sandals this year and the Church’s are a brilliant buy. They need zero breaking in, just throw on the J Brands boyfriend jeans, buckle up and go… Continue reading

Margaret Howell pre-fall 2013 collection arrives in store…

Margaret-Howell-pre collection (3)

…And finally, the concept of pre-collections makes perfect sense. Landing in store any day now, the pre-fall collections (AKA the collections that take up an increasing slice of a buyer’s budget) consist of the wear-all-year pieces that have become the mainstay of British wardrobes.

Margaret Howell SS13 campaign by Koto Bolofo

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I’ll never get bored of seeing how things are made, especially with campaigns like this. Once more, Margaret Howell has worked with Koto Bolofo (surely one of the most poetic of photographers, if I may gush so), commissioning him to shoot at a specialist linen weaver in County Wexford, Ireland, underscoring the brand’s dedication to traditional fabrics and quality production… Continue reading

Gentlewoman style: serious raincoats

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

High street raincoats and trench coats are all very well. They no doubt look the part and some can be nicely made, but for long lasting and properly weather proofed trench coats, I prefer to buy from the originators. Continue reading

London Collections: Men AW13 – from highland heritage to city subcultures

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Can you forecast next season’s trends based on three days in one city? A little. Two stood out for me at London Collections: Men this week – neither very surprising. Menswear trends are a bit more predictable than womenswear because (as a rule) men like to shop for the familiar rather than the new. So we saw a ton of youth subculture references, plus many nods to Great British heritage and manufacturing. Continue reading
