Fashion: Margiela takes to the high street

After the recent success of its collaborations with Versace and Marni, H&M this week announced its next partner, the avant-garde label Maison Martin Margiela, the brilliantly bonkers name behind such treats as flat-sleeved jackets and cloven-hooved boots. The range will include both menswear and womenswear, as well as accessories, and launches in November. Get queuing now!

Face to watch: Kitty Cowell

Ed sheeran, Vanessa Saturday, Rita Ora – alumni of the British Academy of New Music all. And the one to watch from this year's crop? Step forward Kitty Cowell, who has, apparently, "got swag". Class dismissed. kittycowell.tumblr.com

Recreation: Monster Swim

If swimming with sharks has started feeling passé, try open-water specialist Swimtrek's upgrade: freestyling with Nessie in Scotland's finest loch as part of a mile or half-mile paddle. 18 August, monsterswim.co.uk

Film: 'Gambit'

The 1966 original (see link below) was good, but the Coen brothers-scripted remake (out October) will surely be better. How can it fail, with Diaz, Rickman, Firth and Mel Brooks regular Cloris Leachman? tinyurl.com/cugcpfx

Photography: Do Not Disturb!

Not one for the bashful, this: check out what happened when Ellen von Unwerth checked in at the Madonna Inn for a salacious shoot of dominatrices and coquettes. From Thursday, michaelhoppengallery.com
