Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. JEFF KOONS FOR H&M
So did you? Get your hands on the much-coveted Jeff Koons for H&M handbag? To celebrate the brand new H&M NYC flagship and the Jeff Koons retrospective at the Whitney, a one-off handbag adorned with Koons’ famous Balloon Dog was produced last week, sadly to the US market only. I wrote about it here. (And if you missed it, well you can always buy this signed bag for $1,500 on eBay… or, um, this empty carrier bag for $39. Yes, the world has indeed gone mad.)
2. EBAY TO STREAM SOTHEBY’S AUCTIONS
At last! Some credibility to eBay’s luxury auctions, in the guise of a new hook-up with Sotheby’s. This autumn, eBay will live stream most of Sotheby’s New York auctions, allowing online bidding from eBay’s customers, with an aim to extend the partnership worldwide. With rival auctioneers Christie’s upping its own reach (it regularly reports from its auctions on Instagram), this is another sign of high art and fashion opening up to the masses.
3. SACAI X VANS
Just in at Dover Street Market, this season-inappropriate collab between Vans and Sacai. I love the low-key styling of neutral-coloured suede on a low-top or hi-top skate shoe. The furry lining I like too, just maybe not quite yet…
4. CALVIN KLEIN JEANS X MYTHERESA
Clearly it’s not just me who’s feeling the waves of Calvin Klein nostalgia. Last week saw MyTheresa’s capsule line of CK Jeans classics land onsite, as modelled by Kate Moss’s wee half sister. You can shop my edit below…
Who doesn’t love a bit of Net-a-Porter newness? New to the site is Sacai (above) and Studio Nicholson. If you’re not au fait with Studio Nicholson, read up on the brand in this post from 2012. It’s rooted in a menswear sensibility with easy pieces for fuss-free living. Cultish Japanese brand Sacai is known for its subverted classics; think deconstructed biker jackets, frill-edged shirts and bomber jacket-dresses. And if you’re just looking for a spring colour injection, you’ll find it at Smythson, Sophie Hulme and Stella McCartney, new in at Net-a-Porter.

Last Wednesday saw the unveiling of Dover Street Market’s seasonal Tachiagari, when the new collections and installations go in and the bloggers are let loose around the store with their dSLRs. Most noticable to me was the Brit invasion. It really is a BFC-fest in here – in a good way of course. Continue reading
