Agenda: Giles Deacon; Willy Moon; Shuggie Otis; Alfred Hitchcock; Comica Festival

 

Giles Deacon's sketch show

Designer Giles Deacon's show during London Fashion Week is one of the most understated but brilliant events of the season – each dress is a piece of demi-couture, inspired by a painting, a cigarette burn and latterly, smashed mirrors. This month see him translating that fastidious craftsmanship for the high-street boutique Matches, with a one-off capsule collection of graffiti and sketch-print garments, which arrive in store this week.

From £200, matchesfashion.com

Face to watch: Willy Moon

the 22-Year-old Kiwi is having a good month. Not only is his hip-hop-meets-1960s rock'n'roll song "Yeah Yeah" on the new Apple ad, but he's currently supporting Jack White on his UK tour. And just check out those cheekbones…

Lexpionage: Briterature *.

A genre of written prose, inspired by the news that Britney Spears is in talks with Harper Collins to pen her debut work of fiction, aka the next Great American Novel. Cf: Snooki, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks
