THE DRG STYLE INDEX: TRADEMARK, LUCKY MAGAZINE, SAINT LAURENT

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…

1. HELLO TRADEMARK

Trademark-SS15-5
I’m keeping my eye on Trademark this year, a brand I only discovered a few weeks ago at their London press day. Shapes are simple, and a tiny bit preppie (well, there are sweatshirts) but it’s the overall presentation as ‘a brand’ that I like – focussed, clean and graphic. Continue reading

Painterly packaging: Jo Malone My Wanderlust by Charlotte Stockdale

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jo Malone My Wanderlust

Here’s something a bit different from Jo Malone London. Charlotte Stockdale has been the brand’s style editor for a while now but her influence isn’t always evident. But here it is in this home fragrance line called My Wanderlust. The fragrances reflect travel and the joy of exploration and the line includes a scent diffuser, candle, linen spray, soap and ‘square scents’ (for placing in drawers, wardrobe, luggage etc).

Tom Ford launches beard oil and a beard comb

Tom Ford
nails it again. Who knew beard oil was a must-have? But clocking the trend for beards and their maintenance, he has just introduced a mini range of beard grooming products including Swiss-made beard combs (£28) and the soon-to-be-cult conditioning beard oil (£40). Continue reading

Raf-Simons-

This year’s British Fashion Awards is set to be the most exciting yet, for me anyway.

Anyone want to place bets on the following?

Emerging Womenswear Designer.
Aargh, how can I choose between Marques and Tait? I’ll go for Tait though in light of his LVMH prize:

Last chance to see Matisse – The Cut-Outs at Tate Modern (at 5am if you so desire!)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Matisse-cut-outs-all-nighter-Tate-Modern-Disneyrollergirl

As a rule, I don’t do ‘press release’ blogging (aka cut-n-paste blogging) but there’s simply too much info here to do otherwise! So if you haven’t seen Matisse Cut-Outs at Tate Modern yet, why not do it this weekend in the best possible way? In a customer service coup, Tate Modern is turning the last weekend of the exhibition into an interactive extravaganza. All the info is below… Continue reading

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

LVMH-Frank-Gehry- Fondation-Louis-Vuitton

Nope, still not bored with this year’s fashion-art love affair. Which is just as well as it’s only set to intensify. Late October sees the big reveal of the Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton art museum in Paris (above), showcasing the LVMH corporate collection of art. The 126,000 square foot ‘glass cloud’ is rumoured to be the venue for the next Vuitton womenswear show, so expect your Instagram feed to be flooded with art-fashion-architecture amazingess of the highest order… Continue reading

Sneak Peek: Arthur Elgort – ‘The Big Picture’

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Gotta love Instagram for sneak peeks. I saw this one on hairdresser Christiaan’s* Insta, it’s of Arthur Elgort with his next photo book, The Big Picture.

It’s being published by Steidl again who singlehandedly win the argument of why print is still relevant – theirs are just the best quality books in every way. The book comes out in November.

*Christiaan doesn’t need a surname, and is apparently working on his own book, fyi

Denim master craft: Levi’s Lot No. 1

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

7 Levi's Lot No 1 made to order jeans

You’d think a couture gown or Savile Row suit was the ultimate luxury but I can think of something even better. Stationed at the back of Levi’s London flagship store is its recently introduced Lot No. 1 made–to-order jeans service. The answer to every denim connoisseur’s prayers, it’s a meticulously executed personal service that puts the customer at its heart. And I imagine it could become quite addictive. Continue reading

Coming soon: Chanel’s Dentelle Précieuse compact (but will you use it?)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Chanel-Dentelle-Precieuse-Compact

Chanel is one of the few top-end luxury brands that still values an in-store experience over the convenience of online shopping. This goes for beauty as well as fashion, so much so that is has invested in standalone beauty destinations – the Covent Garden store is beauty heaven and the Heathrow pop-up was a crowd puller.
