Our dearly departed
An Inaccessible Moment is a posthumous show of the work of Spanish artist Juan Muñoz. A self-described "storyteller", his pieces are in the Tate and Guggenheim, but this show at London's Frith Street Gallery is more intimate. 25 April until 16 June; frithstreetgallery.com
The new collection from menswear brand Percival – which launches at Asos this month – is inspired by all things British: T-shirt prints inspired by the colours of Plymouth lido, and donkey jackets in beeswaxed cotton, perfect for country walks. Visit asos.com
Big enough to cram all your worldly goods into, but not so large you'll never find them again – and just the right side of gaudy, with bold Aztec-inspired print and a bright yellow strap. What more could you want from a tote? A silver fish zip-pull, of course. £179, plumo.com
An oft-overlooked Modernist design classic, the K3 kettle has just been re-released in its original Magnalium alloy, with sycamore handle. Heat on an Aga or wood-burning stove (OK, a gas hob will do). £149, twentytwentyone.com
