Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. MR PORTER X COS
Mr Porter and Cos, could there be a better combination? Clearly they thought not. Coming May 7th is a capsule collection boasting the sort of clean lines and versatile colour palette that spell success for both parties. I’ll be having a sniff around for the best bits so watch this space.
2. MARTIN MARGIELA THE MOVIE
The floodgates for fashion documentaries have opened but I like the sound of this one. ‘The Artist is Absent’ airs at the Tribeca Film Festival and explores the mystery of Martin Margiela. Isn’t it amazing that several years after he left his own company we’re still intrigued by him? Watch the trailer on Yoox.
3. J&M DAVIDSON IS COMING TO MOUNT STREET
The 30th anniversary celebrations are at full tilt for J&M Davidson. One of those quiet brands that has been around seemingly forever, it has decided to shout a little louder with a store in one of London fanciest streets. The store will open this autumn at 104 Mount Street, selling the classic cuts of coats, separates and knitwear (not to mention the best in luxury totes and leathergoods), that their hardcore fans in London, Paris and Tokyo love them for.
