Fashion: A word in your shell, like

With Chinese designers such as Vivienne Tam and Alexander Wang making their mark on Western shoppers in recent seasons, the latest addition to fashion's cultural revolution is jewellery designer Bao Bao Wan, who is set to cause a stir when her range launches at Matches this month. Wan is the granddaughter of pre-eminent Communist official Wan Li and a stalwart on the Beijing fashion scene. Vogue China's editor-in-chief loves her, and the It-girls over here are smitten too. From £630, at matchesfashion.com
