THE DRG STYLE INDEX: Gosha Rubchinskiy, Esprit, Michael Kors, Hillier Bartley
Here’s the latest weekly DRG STYLE INDEX ranking, a round-up of the brands currently buzzing on my radar….
1. WOULD YOU WEAR A GOSHA FRAGRANCE?
Mucho anticipation around the rumour of a Gosha Rubchinskiy fragrance. Odds are on that he’ll do it with Comme des Garçons, which would make sense as the brand has a successful fragrance license and works with Rubchinskiy to produce his collections. Rumoured ETA is October…
2. OPENING CEREMONY X ESPRIT
Opening Ceremony is always on the money with any nostalgic (read: 80s) collab. The latest is as good as expected, a celebration of Esprit’s colourful sporty separates from back in the day. The typography tote gets my vote, and the price is right at $50…
3. TOMMY TON FOR MICHAEL KORS
A street style ad campaign for fall? Groundbreaking! OK, there’s nothing new about this format, but the Tommy Ton campaign for Michael Kors handbags featuring influencers in a ‘real, everyday life’ setting is beautifully cast and executed. According to Fashionista.com, “it’s intended to be the first in an ongoing series, which will feature new muses each season”. Hmmm, I give this three seasons max before
they run out of muses it gets tired…
4. HILLIER BARTLEY AW16 UNVEILED
Like Tom Ford, Hillier Bartley were social media-shy about showing their AW16 collection too early and the duo have only just released the pictures now, to chime with their arrival on the shop floor. The jumbo cord suiting is my favourite, along with the elongated loafers. It’s styled with Chinoiserie silks for a pleasing clash of tailoring means flou. Buy it at Matchesfashion.com.
