THE DRG STYLE INDEX: DIOR, VOGUE, PRADA, SONIA RYKIEL X LANCOME, CHAMPION



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

1. DIOR FINALLY NAMES ITS NEW DESIGNER
Maria Grazia Chiuri heads to Dior as artistic director
An exciting week for Dior, who finally named Maria Grazia Chiuri as its incoming artistic director. I wasn’t convinced by the other suggestions but I love Chiuri’s work at Valentino and it will be interesting to see her take on modern femininity at Dior. Oh and let’s not forget possibly the real reason she’s been hired. Accessories, baby! (more…)



Petit Déjeuner – Hurry Up and Wait



What do mornings mean to you? That’s the roundabout question being asked by Petit Déjeuner, my new DRG film strand, which launches today! It’s a chance to stretch myself beyond the world of stills and dip a toe into the wonderful realms of moving image.

These video vignettes take their cues from morning routines, musings and motivations. You know, those first waking moments when you may be ruminating on your ambitions – hello Monday #lifegoals! – or if you’re anything like me, wishing you could slow your pace right down as you silence the snooze button for the 12th time…

Saint Laurent couture made to order

“It will be used only for ‘friends of the house,’ and can be both for men or women, daywear or evening wear. Hedi Slimane decides these orders case by case. Unlike a couture collection, this is an even more exclusive definition.” So quoth an unnamed Saint Laurent exec in the New York Times on the subject of the new Yves Saint Laurent made to order service.

On my radar: Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Pre-fall 2015



Sonia By Sonia Rykiel Pre Fall 2015

Julie de Libran is warming up in her new role as creative director of Sonia Rykiel. I’m rather taken with these shots of the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel pre-fall 2015 collection, a slightly boyish offering of military-influenced separates and coats.
