“For me, the question is: is fashion a way to be like your neighbour or is it a way of being yourself, different from your neighbour? Nothing is ugly nowadays. If you look at everyone’s Instagram accounts, there is beautiful food, beautiful flowers, beautiful muscles… everything is too beautiful. Bring back ugliness! Baudelaire said there is no beauty without something bizarre.” Christian Lacroix, System magazine issue 13 WORDS: Disneyrollergirl / Navaz Batliwalla IMAGE: Christian Lacroix, System magazine NOTE: Most images are digitally enhanced.

Trend report: what to wear for SS24

Spring is properly here, so it’s off with the coats and on with the T-shirts. LOL April Fool! Alas no, it’s still pretty chilly in NW10, so my Spring trend report is leaning a little towards knits and waterproofs for another few weeks. But amongst the leather outerwear and aristo-inspired Barbours and barn jackets, there are skin-baring T-bar shoes, shiny, happy tinted lip oils and molto pops of primary colour (the Italians do it better). Walk this way… 1/ ENGLISH ECCENTRIC. Vintage 80s Vogues and Tatlers seem to have crowded designers’ mood boards for Spring. Well, that’s the vibe I’m gettin ..read more

What’s the secret ingredient to Larry David-core style?
Disneyrollergirl
by Disneyrollergirl
2w ago
I enjoyed this Guardian feature on Larry David’s costume design. It looks at how the Curb Your Enthusiasm character’s style has evolved over the years and how his post-normcore ‘look’ has infiltrated fashion – via TikTok of course. A key takeaway: real-life Larry takes the clothes home after a season’s filming and the costume designer, Leslie Schilling often spots him re-wearing certain pieces in TV interviews, mixed with his own clothes. That co-mingling of character and real-life persona through the medium of clothes is a genius storytelling tool. It blurs the line even more between Larry D ..read more

Dries Van Noten: Say it ain’t so!

A sad week for Dries heads. It’s just been announced Dries Van Noten is stepping down from his namesake brand after 38 years and the fashion world is in mourning. A thoroughly nice (and normal!) guy who respects women, a brilliantly consistent designer who charms through clever juxtapositions, not to mention a fabulous colourist, champion of diverse beauty and gardener extraordinaire! My personal highlights – his 2014 exhibition at the Arts Decoratifs Museum, the beyond fantastic illustration collab with artist Gill Button, his always wonderful casting and my 5 inch snakeskin boots. Thanks Dr ..read more

Celine AW24: retro-modern minimalism plus a lipstick line

Still a bit gutted that Hedi didn’t end up at Chanel. Ah well, Celine’s gain. Nothing crazy new to see here but his brand of retro-modernism for Winter 24 (just teased in a film) looks contemporary and cool – yet surprisingly un-grungy – in the way only Hedi’s can. It’s the high-shine block-heeled riding boots and shrunken turtlenecks for me… What is new is the launch of Celine Beauté, starting with lipsticks. Who needs a new lipstick line? Clearly no-one. Apart from me, I guess. Following from the haute parfumerie of 2019, 15 shades of Le Rouge Celine, including the nude rose seen in the f ..read more

Quote of the day: Vanessa Friedman on why fashion matters

1M ago
“It’s a gesture of respect for yourself and those around you. The momentum has been building since the world emerged from pandemic isolation, cycling out of comfort clothing into confusion, tugged toward the allure of the recent FX series about Capote’s “Swans,” and the erstwhile rituals of dress. Remembering what it means to construct the public self.” Vanessa Friedman on the conviction of personal style, New York Times (unlocked link) WORDS: Disneyrollergirl / Navaz Batliwalla IMAGE: The Row AW24 by Jamie Hawkesworth NOTE: Most images are digitally enhanced.

Tod’s AW24: Press here

1M ago
Two quick takeaways from the Tod’s AW24 show. Precision-pressed creases on overlong tailored trousers to give a super-lengthening effect to legs (above and below). And the double-shirt styling – so simple and achievable (above and bottom). Pressed creases are a trend that continues where Prada left off. Mrs Prada, that is. Her deliberate steam-creased skirt folds went viral after appearing in M Le magazine du Monde last year (below). But if you’re going to attempt this look, do it like you mean it. Pressing deliberate visible creases into a silk slip dress or blouse is an easy way to upda ..read more

Street style: Lolita Jacobs

Lolita Jacobs is one of my fave Insta follows for her curatorial eye, but her relatable personal style is great too. Jeans factor highly, in combination with cool, just-statement-enough pieces. Even guest modelling on a runway, she keeps her innate boyish spirit about her. If you like her vibe, try to get your hands on L’Etiquette Femme – the French magazine that she fashion directs alongside her styling and art direction gigs for the likes of MaxMara and Gucci Beauty.

Spring is almost here but it’s still cold AF and I’m not quite ready to give up the four-ply. Good news for NYC readers; Lauren Manoogian (above) is getting ready to open her first store in Broome Street, where you can envelope yourself in her signature alpaca sweaters, robe-y cardigans and humungous scarves. Closer to home, we Brits can get them from Harrods*, Selfridges*, Net-a-Porter* and Couverture*. Meanwhile, Paris Fashion Week has kicked off with a show of MA graduates’ work at the Institut Francais de la Mode, attended by Brigitte Macron, including Kira Zander’s sculptural, textural k ..read more

Costume designer Wendy Chuck on cinematography, colour choices and cultural references

“Sometimes things happen on the day and I remember the day that Angus sits in the background reading in a tan sweater and noticed the chair was the same color and I brought it up to Alex and Eigil and they were happy to leave it as it was and it actually works that he’s blending into the chair as he’s starting to feel more comfortable there.” Never not fascinated by film costumes designers. Classiq has a great interview with The Holdovers costume designer Wendy Chuck, who talks about cultural references, colour choices and her relationship with cinematographer Eigil Bryld. I was a big fan of ..read more
