Fashion: Be young, free and jingle
Kat Maconie has already carved out a name for herself creating fashionably functional footwear that doesn't hurt your feet, and this season she's collaborating with Felder Felder. Having made the shoes for their spring/summer 2011 catwalk show – which featured their signature armour-like dresses and punky glamour – Maconie's peep-toe boots, gilded with jingly gold hoops, are now available at Urban Outfitters and Asos. Just fancy! And what's more, you'll be able to walk in them too... £295, urbanoutfitters.com/asos.com
Face to watch: Michael Kiwanuka
With the timbre of a young Bill Withers, this 23-year-old retro-soul crooner from north London is as rawly expressive as he is studiously retro. Having recently supported Adele on tour, he's releasing new EP "Tell Me a Tale" on 13 June

A period of recreation infelicitously coinciding with a volcanic ash cloud, often spent watching Dickinson's Real Deal, glugging Ernest & Julio Gallo and cursing airline information lines
