Content meets commerce: Introducing the Harrods.com ‘Inside The Studio’ campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Harrods is giving a big push to its digital content, bolstering its e-commerce with rich, online editorial. This month, I’m partnering with Harrods to spread the word on its latest editorial campaign, Inside The Studio.

In the run up to the British Fashion Awards, Harrods has teamed up with Alice Temperley, Antonio Berardi, Rupert Sanderson and Matthew Williamson to show us what we really want to see… what actually goes on in the ateliers? Continue reading

What next for Valextra? It’s a shame Design Director Alvaro Gonzalez has left the building, I thought things were going so well. It’s still one of my favourite artisanal luxury brands though – any guesses who’s in next? Continue reading

Highlights from Hermes SS15 at Paris Fashion Week

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jacques-Habbah-Dazed-Hermes-ss15

The end of a lovely chapter at Hermes ss15. I’ve enjoyed Christophe Lemaire’s vision at the house but I’m champing at the bit to see what Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski has in store too. Some called Lemaire’s final collection for Hermes a palate-cleanser* from the 70s overload seen pretty much everywhere else. Continue reading

Dior’s new age embraces past, present and future for ss15

Picture the scene: on arrival at the pap-packed arch of the Musee du Louvre courtyard, you’re greeted by the Dior show venue – a giant mirrored cube. Could this be construed as the ultimate symbol of our modern, narcissistic times? A reflection of us in all our peacock-y finery? This I wondered as I joined pretty much every other show-goer in taking an obligatory selfie to share immediately (cos if you didn’t record it and instantly share it, then you clearly weren’t really there).

Jil Sander SS15

jil-sander-ss15-Dazed-Lea-Colombo 1

Slowly falling in love with Jil Sander again. Incoming creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga showed his debut for SS15 and I really like the youthful, school uniformness of the stiff shirting, wrap skirts and cool colour palette.

Someone in Bon magazine (Yasmin Sewell I think) said a while ago that they doubted the relevance of Sander now that other brands have stepped into the Sander space (Celine, The Row). But this younger take could appeal to a new customer, and I always like to support the underdog… Continue reading

London Fashion Week SS15 highlights: Day 5

Simone-Rocha-ss15

This post is a little late because I had so much post-LFW catching up to do.

Simone Rocha is a favourite for Londoners and has finely tuned her unique communion-chic aesthetic. I loved how the models’ heads were swathed in sheer, flower-scattered voiles. Also, those pink lace-ups… Continue reading

London Fashion Week SS15 highlights: Day 4

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Thomas-Tait-ss15-Georges Rousse

The answer to the question “why do we still need fashion shows?” was answered succinctly on Monday with Thomas Tait’s powerpacked, techno-soundtracked stomper of a show. Fashion shows need emotion, energy and feeling in order to express something these days, the clothes are only part of the story. And so Tait created tension and anticipation in his concrete box of a location, with walls painted in collaboration with artist Georges Rousse setting an intriguing scene. Continue reading

London Fashion Week SS15 highlights: Day 1

Shrimps-LFW-ss15

London Fashion Week kicked off with two buzzy new names. Faustine Steinmetz showed as part of New Gen with her first presentation, a clever exploration of couture and branding, set in the suitably arty ICA.

I’m so impressed by this young designer, whose obsession for hands-on labour and figuring things out results in mind boggling textile experiments. On display were denim-look jackets of polyester styled out like Shibori (“It’s not Shibori at all! I actually handpainted it, I just like that look,” Steinmetz told me), and a jeans-n-jacket combo made from unravelled layers of upcycled denim creating a tufty fringe effect. Continue reading

Rodarte’s perfect mix for SS15

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Rodarte-ss15 1

I can’t normally abide hanky hems, but I’m making an exception for these divine mermaid silhouettes at Rodarte. Also… those bonkers boots!

As usual, the casting, hair, makeup and attitude is spot on. The classic all-American make-up and hair with those busy outfits. The pierced eyebrows!. Continue reading
