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

1. DIOR DRAMAS

What a shocker to hear of Raf’s impending departure from Dior! The general consensus is that he has done the right thing in jumping off the treadmill, so the question is what will he do as a free agent if he doesn’t go to another brand? There’s another question for me. (more…)

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: GLOSSIER, ERDEM, HERMES, PAUL SMITH, FINERY

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

1. GLOSSIER GOES GLOBAL
Glossier

Did Christmas just come early? Yes, if you’re one of the gazillions feeling the #FOMO of Glossier’s much-coveted beauty products. Glossier’s Balm Dotcom all-purpose salve just arrived at Net-a-Porter, so you can order a 3-pack and get it shipped to anywhere that NAP ships to. Buy it here….


2. ERDEM’S HOME-TAIL STORE

Erdem

Shall we all just move to Mayfair and be done with it? The latest British luxury designer to set up shop in or around Mount Street is Erdem, whose first store has just debuted at 70 South Audley Street, W1. As is the current retail vogue, it has a ‘home-tail’ feel, with perfectly placed lamps, plants, furniture and of course, an expertly-selected edit of books to complement the romantic floral frocks and brocade coats. Style Bubble has the low-down


3. HERMES UNVEILS ITS MENSWEAR MANIFESTE SITE

Hermes Manifeste

For what’s considered the most storied and traditional of luxury brands, Hermès has certainly been killing it on the digital front lately. While the Hermès X Apple Watch hoo-ha hogged the news this week, Hermès also launched a new men’s editorial and e-com site. Called ‘MANifeste’, it’s witty, interactive and beautifully executed.


4. PAUL SMITH REINVENTED?

Are we in for a big Paul Smith-shaped surprise when we see the SS16 womenswear collection at LFW next Sunday? This article in i-D hints that things on the womenswear design front are being stepped up a notch…


5 OTHER SHOP X FINERY

Finery X OTHER Shop

If you like physical shopping as much as (or more than) shopping online, you might like to know that OTHER Shop is now stocking an edit of Finery in its Kingly Street store. The highlights for me are this structured pleat skirt (above), the brilliant leather skirt and the high neck tees. The prices are crazy good, especially if you like your office-wear with a bit of a twist… Read more at OTHER Shop or shop here.

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: LYST, MIU MIU, ATTERLEY ROAD, SUPERMARKET SARAH X MONKI

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

1. LYST GOES GLOBAL

Lyst

Lyst has just raised £40 million in funding from some of the biggest fash-and-tech investors. The aggregated shopping site now has a universal shopping cart that lets you shop from multiple etailers really easily, and the new funding will allow it to expand its services globally. (more…)

The Chanel Coco Crush fine jewellery pop-up shop at Net-a-Porter has been open for one hour and already pieces are sold out. (So if you were thinking of splashing £13,500 on the 18-karat yellow gold cuff, sorry you weren’t quick enough). What you can still buy (at time of writing) are the five gold rings. In white gold or yellow gold, they have the signature Chanel ‘quilting’ effect and range from £1,400 to £2,325. You can buy them from the pop-up e-com shop until 6th May.
