Borrowed from the boys: masculine florals

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 Prada-masculine-florals-ss14 2

I mean really, what are these fab floral jackets and knits doing on the menswear rails when they should be adorning the hangers in my wardrobe? From Prada’s shirts (love these Leibowitz ad pics) to Dries’ tonal jackets, to H&M’s heavily inspired Harrington, I would happily wear any and all of these masculine florals… Continue reading

Cutest speeches from the British Fashion Awards: Miuccia Prada sounding genuinely thrilled to win the gong for International Designer of the Year, and Edie Campbell (Model of the Year) thanking her pony Dolly… Bless!

This is not a handbag

Trending for ss14: the intersection between art and fashion. Oh yes, I’m well up for this. Ok, art and fashion have always been rampant bedfellows, but from here on in, I think we’re going to see a lot more fash-art hook-ups. Sorry purists but art just got fashionable.

To whet our appetites, we’ve had the Dior-Warhol collab for Aw13 and the art-inspired collection from Prada for ss14. Not to mention Chanel’s art gallery-themed ss14 show and the Chanel Bond Street store that’s practically an art gallery in itself.

And hot on the heels of Paris Fashion Week we have… FRIEZE! Continue reading

Quote of the day: Miuccia Prada

“Ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer. The investigation of ugliness is, to me, more interesting than the bourgeois idea of beauty. And why? Because ugly is human.”

How good are Kirsten Owen and co in Prada’s SS13 campaign?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When it comes to ad campaigns I’m a bit of a realist. I prefer the classic portrait shot to the bells and whistles fantasy arrangements. So I’m loving Steven Meisel’s Prada ss13 campaign – gold standard models (go Kirsten Owen!), wearable styling (even the fright-shoes look good) and a nice plain background. All my boxes ticked… Continue reading

Trend report: first look at Prada ss13 menswear, womenswear and *those* shoes

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The Prada stacked ‘geta’ flatform is a work of art, that’s undisputed. A piece that you can actually wear? Not so much. Yes, you’ll see Anna Dello Russo, Fran Burns et al admirably trialling it come the February shows, but in the main those editors have drivers; mere mortals will face more of a challenge. Because as well as their height and bulk, these mega shoes weigh a bloody ton! Which is why Prada has also unveiled a far more wearable properly flat version, plus of course its fabulous metallic tabi sock which promises to be the real hit of the season. Continue reading

H&M magazine: the rise of the stylist

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

One of the things I love about watching the shows is sussing out the styling. The bigger brands use the best stylists in the biz to tell the ‘story’ of the collection and show how the clothes can be worn, something you’re just never going to get from seeeing pieces hung on a rail. Those Prada tabi socks, the Dries Van Noten layers, the white sunglasses at Rochas, they’re all trends waiting to be translated to the street that will help the designers sell even more of their wares and chances are, those ideas come from the stylist.

Chloe Sevigny for Miu Miu AW12 campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Chloe Sevigny’s the face of Miu Miu’s Aw12 campaign, making us nostalgic for the last time she posed for Miu Miu in 1996. I prefer the 1996 version; those flat planes of colour, sandals and slacks are suddenly looking quite contemporary and chanelling the vibe of Prada’s SS13 menswear collection. Will Miuccia take a cue from menswear for SS13 and deliver something similar for Miu Miu womenswear SS13?
