Today’s the day – the Mr Porter sale is here!

Mr-Porter

The Mr Porter international sale went live today – at last! The US sale started a few days ago but I’ve had a look and there are still some crumbs left for the rest of us.

As usual, I’ve hunted out the pieces that I think work for both guys and girls, so here’s my edit of what we can steal. Personally, I’m all about the Raf Simons knit and the LVC pocket tee. A classic cotton pocket tee is stupidly hard to come by these days so I stockpile these when I see them…

How to beat the cold snap, one luxe layer at a time

ESK-socks

In London we haven’t had a truly cold snap yet this year but I’m bracing myself. If the threats are true that we’re in for the harshest winter since 1949, then I plan to be thoroughly insulated. Continue reading

T.M. Lewin X The Sartorial 7

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Top marks to UK tailors and shirtmakers T.M. Lewin and fashion collective The Sartorial 7 (who I’m afraid I had never heard of until now) for producing this very slick and handsome mini film. Seven young British guys suited up and going for pie and mash should look cheesy as hell but the cinematography by Jack Flynn is beautiful. Continue reading

Quote of the day: Laure Heriard Dubreuil

“During fashion week, everyone looks like a peacock. And there we were wanting something so basic.”
The Webster boutique owner, Laure Heriard Dubreuil talking about buying mens shirts in the Wall Street Journal resonated with me.

Watch the accompanying video too:

First look at Ryan McGinley and Chloe Sevigny’s videos for Uniqlo (and some of the 330 knitwear colour options)

Ryan-McGinley-Uniqlo

“I guess I would wear cashmere if I wanted to feel cozy and comfortable. Cashmere always makes you feel like you’re being hugged by maybe ten people, and it also makes you feel like you’re right next to a fireplace.” So coos Ryan McGinley in soothing tones in this slightly cheesy video for Uniqlo.

Scoffing aside I must admit I’m tempted by the cut and colours of these Uniqlo men’s cashmere knits*, which are part of the silk and cashmere line and come in 330 colour options.  Continue reading

Haider Ackermann menswear SS14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Best casting and styling ever from Haider Ackermann’s first menswear show. Early trends coming through for menswear ss14 include structured tunic tees, 50s Harrington jackets, post-pop graphics and sloganeering, lots of leather, extreme trouser shapes (super-wide peg at Topman Design, meggings at Gucci, culottes at Jil Sander) and more wonkiness following aw13. Plus on the hair front, lots of fabulous quiffy dos!

Will Burberry make Google glasses?

Burberry-ss14 4

For Burberry Prorsum’s SS14 menswear show in its new London home we were treated to a collection called Writers and Painters. A gentle mashup of Alan Bennett boyish shapes and a Hockney colour palette (primary brights expertly layered by Burberry stylist Elliot Smedley), it was certainly commercial but thoroughly eye pleasing.

Styling is so important for a show like this in which the pieces don’t reinvent the wheel and you can’t inspect the quality up close. The outfits were accessorised with soft leather drawstring duffles and polka dot ‘Wave’ sunglasses. Continue reading

UK prom style – it’s all about the boys

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Some interesting info just arrived in my inbox from Debenhams on the rise of the UK ‘Prom kings’. According to Debenhams, boys are spending 24% more on Prom prepping than last year, although still not as much as girls. While Prom has been a big deal in America for, well, ever, it’s only really taken off in the UK in the last 10 years. But jeez, has it taken a long time for retailers to catch on. Continue reading
