THE DRG STYLE INDEX: JAEGER, MOTHER OF PEARL, A.P.C, VIVIENNE WESTWOOD X OPENING CEREMONY, CAROLINE ISSA X NORDSTROM

2. MOTHER OF PEARL MAKES PROGRESS
Exciting times for Mother Of Pearl, which has been shortlisted for this year’s BFC / Vogue Designer Fashion Fund.

3: APC RETURNS TO W1
Good to see A.P.C back in W1 with a new flagship store in Lexington Street. Just don’t mention the Timberlands…
4. THE WITCHES OF WESTWOOD REVISITED

Blurring the lines between menswear and womenswear, it will curate exclusive collections with brands including this collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Opening Ceremony. A reissue of pieces from Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s Worlds End label, my sights are set on the 1983 three-tongue Witches trainers.
5. CAROLINE ISSA X NORSDSTROM ARRIVES THIS WEEK
Eep it’s almost time! Caroline Issa’s first collection for Nordstrom launches this week, her video (above) gives a taste of what to expect…
