Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar…
1. CRAIG GREEN X BJORN BORG
I totally missed the memo that Craig Green has teamed up with underwear brand Bjorn Borg to produce a sportswear line for AW16. I saw it at the Urban Outfitters press day and it’s really, really cool. Hooded parachute ponchos, ripstop rucksacks, pyjama-ish tops. All the Craig Green hallmarks but in more commercial shapes. Guys, it’s gonna fly…
2. LOEWE LAUNCHES THE CRAFT PRIZE
Loving this take on luxury prizes. Loewe is offering The Craft Prize, open to ceramicists, weavers, jewellers and the like. Submissions for the €50.000 jackpot prize are open till 7th November.
3. INTRODUCING CASHMERE IN LOVE
A great new discovery on the press days circuit: Cashmere In Love. An Istanbul-based cashmere line, nothing is over £400 and the shapes and colours hit the perfect sweet spot between timeless and modern. (Apologies for the cliché but click the link and you’ll see what I mean).
4: THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO A.P.C
Who doesn’t love a Jean Touitou interview? Here’s the outspoken A.P.C founder sounding off to Vogue on fast fashion, retail and the importance of a creative-commercial partnership. (In other news, how gorgeous is his Paris apartment?)
