THE DRG STYLE INDEX: VETEMENTS, MARC JACOBS BEAUTY, MSGM, WOOYOUNGMI



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

Vetements store Dover street Market
Dover Street Market, barometer of all things zetgeisty has given Vetements its first ever store. Situated in DSM’s New York outpost, it’s… well, it basically looks like a curtained-off fitting room, but hey if DSM are calling it a ‘store’ then I’m not gonna argue. (more…)
