Every Street by Nik Hartley

There’s something very reassuring about hairdressers and barber shops. However fast-moving the worlds of fashion and retail, there’s still nothing that beats sitting in that familiar chair and the sound of steel snippers and a good old analogue haircut. Continue reading

Quote of the day: Peter Lindbergh

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

“A lot of mainstream photographers seem not to think about what they’re doing or feel any responsibility toward anything. And by the time they’re done, the models don’t have any trace of themselves left. This thing about looking young with no wrinkles or expression is all so boring really.”

Quote of the day: Will Steacy

“Technology can allow us to do things with greater efficiency and productivity, labour costs are reduced, but what I wanted to show is that there is a human element lost in that. We are in the middle of this huge transition, and the newspaper industry itself is very much at the front of this process that will happen in every other industry. The beneficiaries of this are a privileged and extremely wealthy few, but a broad spectrum of highly skilled workers are going to be displaced and out of luck for a very long time.”

Art and architecture at the Fondation Louis Vuitton

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

With the spotlight on Paris, now is a good time to talk about the Fondation Louis Vuitton. This spectacular gift to Paris opened at the end of last year and I got my first look a few weeks ago on a whirlwind trip to the city with Who’s Next.

So what exactly is the Fondation Louis Vuitton? Continue reading

Joseph SS15 by David Sims

Dull grey wintry clouds begone please and let the light leak in! I love the simplicity of Joseph’s SS15 ad campaign, shot by David Sims. This is one of my favourite collections of the season, with its deconstructed denim and holey knits. See the rest of the campaign here and shop the Joseph pre-collection here. Continue reading

1.ALLSAINTS IS ALL GROWN UP

I’ve been tracking AllSaints’ gradual transformation for a while now and wow, the metamorphosis is complete!

You know Spring is in sight when the Raf Simons SS15 campaign drops. As usual, shot by the dream team of photographer Willy Vanderperre and stylist Olivier Rizzo, the simple compositions allow the graphic collaged elements to jump off the page…

Book report: some recent recommendations

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Books and bookshops – two of my favourite things. In fact, I may have bought more books than clothes last year. And it was a good year for book shops. Who can forget the publicity coup that was the Great (accidental) Waterstones Lock-In? Then there was the big reveal of Foyles in Charing Cross Road and the brand new Maison Assouline store in Piccadilly. Continue reading

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

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

1. HELLO TRADEMARK


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
