Roll up, roll up

White magic

The 2012 Acne capsule collection has a twist: the womenswear-only range features favourites by the Swedish label from over the years – all reinterpreted in white. The 20 pieces, which start at £70 for a T-shirt, include denim, silk separates and iridescent leather. Available from mid-April at Acne shops as well as Net-A-Porter, Selfridges and Liberty in London. Acnestudios.com

Take a seat

Good news for chair fetishists: the Aram Store has just re-released a 1957 design classic, Hans J Wenger's CH33, which was produced by Danish manufacturer Carl Hansen (hence the name). Choose from beech or oak, with an oiled, soaped or stained finish. £440, aram.co.uk

Tangled up in blue

April marks the beginning of the bluebell season: from now until June, our fields and forests turn violet and indigo – so get out on one of the Ramblers' dedicated Bluebell Walks, anywhere in Britain from the Isle of Wight to Aylesbury. Ramblers.org.uk/walkthemes/bluebells
