THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Public School for J Crew, Alexander Olch, My-Wardrobe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s the eve of London Collections: Men, so the latest DRG STYLE INDEX is a little bit menswear focussed. Here’s my ranking of the brands on my radar this week…

1) J CREW X PUBLIC SCHOOL

Every good menswear designer knows there’s more money to be made from womenswear. So naturally it makes sense for (newly crowned CFDA Menswear Designer Of The Year) Public School to work with J Crew on this womenswear collab. Continue reading

DRG Style Index: Bella Freud fragrance, Rick Owens goes mainstream, Whistles menswear

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The DRG STYLE INDEX this week is all about the new launches and retail concepts launching for AW14. Here’s my ranking of the brand stories that grabbed my attention…

1. BELLA FREUD’S BRAND EVOLUTION

Bella-Freud-fragrance-launch-Azzi-Glasser

I know it’s only May but I can already tell we’re in for the autumn of Bella Freud. Her AW14 collection is much fuller then the capsule knits we’ve been used to and we’ll also see her first collab with Fred Perry. Plus this week saw a few Insta glimpses of the first proper Bella Freud fragrance collection (on the back of those delicious candles). Is it too early for Christmas wishlists? Continue reading

Borrowed from the boys: masculine florals

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Prada-masculine-florals-ss14 2

I mean really, what are these fab floral jackets and knits doing on the menswear rails when they should be adorning the hangers in my wardrobe? From Prada’s shirts (love these Leibowitz ad pics) to Dries’ tonal jackets, to H&M’s heavily inspired Harrington, I would happily wear any and all of these masculine florals… Continue reading

Raf Simons X Sterling Ruby: An art-fashion clash made in heaven

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Raf-Simons-Sterling-Ruby

I could write a thesis-length post on Raf Simons and Sterling Ruby’s epic joint AW14 collection, but I won’t. Instead I recommend you read all about in Tim Blanks’ Style.com report. Or just enjoy the pictures. Suffice to say, the conceptual art student is alive and kicking on the catwalk and if you love collage, Pollock-meets-Clash paint splatters, Lichtenstein primary colours and provocative wordplay, then it’s all here for ya, wrapped up in dun-coloured cashmere and nubby tweed.

Modern Africa hits the menswear runway

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

A-Sauvage-aw14

I’ve enjoyed the modernised African references that have come through so far on the AW14 menswear runways – notably at Agi & Sam, A Sauvage and Stella Jean. I’m hoping we’ll see more at the forthcoming women’s shows. As much as I like traditional kente cloth and wax-style prints, it’s good to see a more varied approach to ‘Africa’ that moves on from Masai beading and casually draped robes. Continue reading

Raf Simons’ SS14 ad campaign has landed (and the first new season drop)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The Raf Simons SS14 campaign images are in! And although those boots are doing nothing for me, I absolutely love the half-half effect of the headshot and landscape graphics. The campaign was shot in Antwerp by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo…

Calvin Klein Collection menswear AW14: Obsession, Eternity, Escape

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Sometimes you want theatrics and fanfare at a fashion show, other times, the simplest things can resonate. These sweatshirts at Calvin Klein Collection menswear AW14 are doing it for me…

Trainer news: Tom Ford, Adidas Stan Smiths, Nike RT, retail wars

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

We’re not even two weeks in and it’s already shaping up to be another good year for sneaker heads.

First, the surprise appearance of trainers (in thrice waxed leather or white velvet!) at Tom Ford’s AW14 menswear presentation. In fact the whole Tom Ford collection was casualised (below), so posh trainers aren’t too out of place…

What to steal from Burberry AW14 menswear

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Burberry-mens-silk-scarf-Aw14

Oh goody. In amongst all the tracksuity sport-luxe that’s dominating London Menswear for AW14, Burberry brings us the silk foulard. Slung jauntily around the shoulders of biker jackets and teddybear coats, it’s not the most macho look but it’s one I really love.

My favourite was a London map-print (old style, not Google-style thankfully), which also comes on a jazzy silk shirt. My other highlights were the handpainted grained leather Caban coats (£5,500), round-shouldered camel Chesterfield coat (£2,495) and split collared Aran sweater (£1,495).
