Agenda: Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo; The Simpsons; Sage Vaughn; The Burning House; Memory tapes; Rocksalt

Fashion : D'oh, Rei, tees for you and me

After collaborations with everyone from the milliner Stephen Jones to the Beatles, Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo has cast her eye over The Simpsons creator Matt Groening's back catalogue, and asked him to design a range of T-shirts for her Play range. The kooky, cartoon-infested tops complement the line's sense of humour and cutesy poignancy as characters from Groening's cult comic strip Life in Hell mingle with Kawakubo's signature doe-eyed heart on long-sleeved slubs and crew-necks. Available now, from £78, from doverstreetmarket.com

Music: Memory tapes

The much-fêted laptop-popster returns with a second album in July, and this lissom first offering, "Wait In the Dark", suggests it should be the very essence of summertime languor. bit.ly/lmPoGR

Food: Rocksalt

Since we do like to be beside the seaside, we'll be hot-footing it to this Folkestone seafood restaurant from former Claridge's head chef Mark Sargeant when it opens next month. rocksaltfolkestone.co.uk
