The Made in Scotland ethos is gaining momentum with the launch of a new Barrie RTW collection next month. Designed by Chanel’s Odile Massuger using premium cashmere fibre, we’re promised twenty silhouettes merging clean lines with adventurous motifs and colours – I’m particularly intrigued by the description of handpainted porcelain buttons!

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Asprey-Aw13

The luxury spotlight has been trained on the Brits this week – especially when it comes to accessories. As speculation grows on where Emma Hill will go post-Mulberry, we’re also looking ahead to what magic Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley will sprinkle on Marc By Marc Jacobs in their new official roles (as creative director and design director respectively).

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW12: DAY 3

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I tried to keep this brief but it didn’t happen so here goes. First up: Margaret Howell. You don’t get many surprises here but that’s OK. With some designers I like to know what I’m getting and for AW12 we’re getting the perfect white shirt, trad fairisles, fitted twinsets, schoolgirl box-pleated skirts, indestructable tweed trench coats (an update on my navy wool one that kept the biting chill out all weekend) and boyish blazers. To finish off – low side ponytails, penny loafers and darling little olive green Tam-o-shanter hats. Continue reading

Mulberry SS12 campaign

I will never get bored of kitsch, oversized props and girls in ankle socks and wedges so Mulberry’s SS12 campaign is right up my street. Creative direction by Ronnie Cooke Newhouse, photos by Tim Walker (obv), props by Andy Hillman and all round fabulosity by Frida Gustavsson and Lindsey Wixson. (Check out the behind-the-scenes pics too…) FUN! Continue reading

Mulberry’s global push

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Could Mulberry be any more like the British version of Marc by Marc Jacobs (well, creative director Emma Hill did used to work there)? The youthful styling, the quirky branding, the cult status handbags, the It Girl following … it’s certainly ticking all the right boxes. Continue reading

Firenze4Ever part 2: Mulberry’s Tuscan tea party

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Far too much fun was had at the launch of Mulberry’s coffee table book on day 2 of Luisa Via Roma’s Firenze4Ever, where we played with the giant gold Mulberry bag, got tangled up in bag-shaped balloons and decorated our own sponge cakes. Continue reading
