Fashion collaborations are standard these days, but some are a better fit than others. So how’s this for a perfect match? Carven meets Petit Bateau in a capsule collection of gamine tops, dresses, polo-bodies and detachable collars. Just beautiful. The collection launches today exclusively on only three etail sites (until 4th December when it goes on general release). (more…)
It’s not often you turn up on a shoot to find your model baking a cake, but that’s exactly what happened on our latest Models From Elsewhere shoot. 21-year old Marianna from M&P Models, has been in London for a year, fitting castings and shoots around her architecture studies. Originally from Poznan in Poland, she lives with a flatmate in King’s Cross where she can be found when not studying at Central St Martins nearby. (more…)
Like me, Mr DRG likes nothing more than a bit of fantasy online shopping – oh the hours he spends on Mr Porter! So I asked him to make himself useful and compile a men’s edit for me here. I think he’s done a damn good job…
Leather and stainless steel hip flask, Dunhill
Just the the thing for a gent in need of a little tie-straightener on the long winter nights
Plaid bomber jacket, PS by Paul Smith
Smithy comes up with a great wool bomber that gives a nod to Brando in On The Waterfront – and crucially, there’s no superfluous branding to mess it up
Muirfield 8 piece cap, Lock & Co.
Every autumn I buy a new cap and this year I plumped for a dark grey one of these from Lock & Co, the oldest shop in the UK. What else could you want in a cap?
Grey hurling sweater, Inis Meain
An excellent jumper from the Aran Islands that’ll last for years and go with pretty much anything – it’s only a matter of time before one of these arrives for me at DRG Towers
Ilkley black Scotch Grain brogue, Tricker’s
Unlike Crockett & Jones, Tricker’s always take several weeks to break in, but once done are comfortable as anything. No other company nails the proportions and shaping of a country brogue quite as well as Tricker’s do, and like any good quality Northampton shoe, you’ll be returning these to the factory many times for resoling
Coyote-trimmed down-filled Arctic parka, Woolrich
As a lad I was rather taken by the parkas worn by Rock Hudson and Patrick McGoohan in Ice Station Zebra, and this is a fine contemporary take on things. Perfect for a December evening, as DRG herself will attest, having bought a black one last year
