Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands and industry stories currently buzzing on my radar…
1. CÉLINE SELLS ONLINE AT 24 SÈVRES
This week saw LVMH-owned Céline arrive at 24 Sèvres, the only multi-brand e-com store to sell Céline. 24 Sèvres (also owned by LVMH) will sell everything from RTW, to eyewear, and bags, shipping to over 80 countries. (more…)
It’s all about the women this week, with International Women’s Day tomorrow and Mother’s Day this Sunday. Despite my inner cynic, I still love Mother’s Day – it’s a good excuse to properly spoil our mums and there’s no shortage of great gift options around at the moment.
Beauty brands tend to highlight the twee-est stuff for Mother’s Day, but all the mums I know are super-cool and don’t want floral soaps and Cath Kidston wash bags. They like Liberty and Space NK or small batch organic oils. They love trying new fragrances (Amanda Carr’s We Wear Perfume site is great for discovery) and are just as swayed by chic packaging as the rest of us. (more…)
Chanel’s cheery spring beauty collections always arrive just when you’re reaching winter breaking point. The ChanelNeapolis New City SS18 collection arrived in January, but it’s taken me a while to take the pics because… the darkness, people!
Anyway, I’m really enjoying the scenic sojourns that Chanel’s creative director of beauty, Lucia Pica takes us on. Her latest is a trip to her hometown of Naples, taking in sunsets, local greenery and ancient frescoes to inspire the colour palette and textures of the make-up.
