Buy it now: the summer sale edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Nigel-Shafran-Vogue

Bam! Nothing for ages, then all the sales start at once! Net-a-Porter, Matchesfashion, Liberty, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols all started their sales last week. I’ll be cherry picking my way through but to start with, here’s a quick pick of my current highlights. There’s a ton of Miu Miu and Isabel Marant on sale at Net-a-Porter but be warned, those sizes will go fast (there’s currently only one of these Miu Miu skirts left).

If you’re not over Rockstuds, Valentino’s leopard-spot flats are a bit different and now selling at 30% off at Matchesfashion. That Marc Jacobs ‘Coke-ribbon’ sweatshirt? It’s still kicking around and is 40% off at Net-a-Porter – yours for £720 (but there’s only one size left). And if you’re a lover of McQueen handbags, this red skull-padlock beauty can be yours for £470.01 at Liberty with 30% off. Shop the edit below…

Enjoy up to 50% off with NET-A-PORTER.COM

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Public School for J Crew, Alexander Olch, My-Wardrobe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s the eve of London Collections: Men, so the latest DRG STYLE INDEX is a little bit menswear focussed. Here’s my ranking of the brands on my radar this week…

1) J CREW X PUBLIC SCHOOL

Every good menswear designer knows there’s more money to be made from womenswear. So naturally it makes sense for (newly crowned CFDA Menswear Designer Of The Year) Public School to work with J Crew on this womenswear collab. Continue reading

Oh Chanel, you had me at ‘Hello’

Chanel-summer-2014-make-up-colours-disneyrollergirl 3

Chanel always manages to nail the summer make-up palette. Take a look at this collection (on counter today), which screams spectacular sunsets, fruit popsicles, beachy frolics and unsuitable holiday romances. Continue reading

Marc Jacobs Resort and the Tramp girl comeback

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

GABRIELA-MARC-JACOBS-Resort

Eighties cocktail girl is back. So says Marc Jacobs, who for the first time presented his resort 2015 collection as a mini show. Styling deets to note: semi-sheer black hose, classic T-strap stilettos (echoing Givenchy aw14), grown up up-dos and Friday-nights-at-Tramp makeup. Dresses are short and tailored, not body con.

Gentlewoman style: how to wear primary colours

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Gentlewoman-style-Primary-Colours

Summer is when I get (a little bit) more adventurous with colour so I’m well into all the primary brights we’re seeing popping up everywhere. Rich royal blue is an easy choice for the colour-shy as it’s almost a neutral so I’d wear that in a bomber jacket or rain mac (I’m currently looking for the perfect single-breasted mac). My manicure of the moment is Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour in Impassioned, a candy apple red that can skew either formal or casual. I also can’t get enough of Kelly green, especially in a fun print (hello Mother Of Pearl shorts), while a sunny shade of yellow lends itself beautifully to accents – this jolly Fendi key fob for example. Finally, thank you Keep It Chic for alerting me to Thomas Maier’s Cruise 15 collection. You can’t buy it now but as inspiration for a relaxed red suit, it serves very nicely…

THE DRG STYLE INDEX: CELINE, MICHAEL KORS, GRAZIA, GLOBE-TROTTER

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

My weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranks the brand stories that have most resonated with me, in order of interest. This week, Céline goes east and Grazia goes into etail…

1. CELINE’S BEIJING STRATEGY

Celine-Beijing-Faye-Wong 2

So the small, discreet, exclusivity rule doesn’t count when it comes to China. Hello Céline fashion show in Beijing! Céline staged a big-ass fashion show in a celeb-packed venue in Beijing’s art district last week to showcase its AW14 collection. The likes of pop star Faye Wong (above) arrived properly attired the Céline way with mannish coat robed over the shoulders. Why the fanfare from this usually reserved brand? Continue reading

Code Chanel and The Healthy Glow Manifesto

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

chanel-Les-Beiges

We’re all familiar with the iconic brand ‘codes’ of Chanel; the double Cs, the pearls, the tweed, the number 5. But here’s a lesser known one: the suntan. Mademoiselle Chanel arguably made the suntan fashionable – until the 1920s, a tan was associated with peasants and farmers, not refined sophisticates. Now of course, every beauty brand under the, um, sun has its suncare line but if you don’t want to fry, or deal with the mess and fuss of fake tan, Chanel would like you to consider its Healthy Glow Manifesto.

Admittedly a fluffy marketing campaign, it’s a seductive one that offers an all-season approach to looking glowy, healthy and outdoorsy (in the chicest way possible of course). Continue reading

Vacation booked? Well timed, H&M’s swimwear collection just landed*

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

HM-Gisele-Swimwear-campaign-ss14

The June issues of my favourite glossies have just landed, signaling a klaxon for all things holiday and beach-related. How timely then, that H&M’s swimwear campaign has also launched, featuring Gisele Bundchen in her natural habitat, that is, reclining on a rock dressed in little more than the skimpiest of bikinis and a spray of sea foam.

VIDEO: My spring edit for McArthurGlen

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Disneyrollergirl-McArthur-Glen

Did I mention my love of outlet shopping? Not just any old outlet but one with a good mix of the classic brands that I wear on a regular basis. Like, you know, Gap,Lacoste, Joseph, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren… And oh look, here they all are at Cheshire Oaks! AKA one of the vast McArthurGlen designer outlets and one I’ve never been to – until now.

McArthurGlen invited me up one sunny Saturday to discover the outlet and work on a video edit of my seasonal fashion picks. Continue reading
