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

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
