Fashion: Mighty swoosh - Nike meets APC

Hot on the heels of Nike's recent collaboration with Liberty, the sports brand has teamed up once again, this time with ultra-cool French cult label APC. The result is a fusion of futurism, athletic prowess and Parisian preppiness, channelled into simple and satisfying, oh-so-now high-tops that you won't want to take off. £90, APC, 35 Dover Street, London W1 (020 7409 0121, apc.fr)

Face to watch: Bart Layton

previously responsible for Channel 5 series Banged Up Abroad, this documentarian is nevertheless a lock-in for critical acclaim with upcoming debut feature "The Imposter", the extraordinary tale of a French con artist

chirping could well become the new tweeting, it seems, following the launch of this sonic data-transfer tool. And by that we mean an app that will allow you to send photos, notes et al to other nearby users via the medium of a two-second-long bird-like noise. Now what of the warble? Free from iTunes Store.

Social Network: Because some things are worth getting excited about…

Music: George Michael

The crooner is back to his best with new song "White Light", an elegant piece of crying-on-the-dancefloor synth-pop whose decadent video is gilded by the presence of a certain supermodel. bit.ly/O6k1xr
