Agenda: Maison Martin Margiela; Kitty Cowell; Monster Swim; 'Gambit'; Do Not Disturb!


Fashion: Margiela takes to the high street

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.

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?
