Fashion: Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Fancy some footwear that's a bit 1970s, a bit Scandi and perfect for the coming season – or rather the microseason, when the sun comes out but it isn't sandal weather just yet? Well, Purified's new shoes, available at Selfridges, are diverting and directional. And, above all, comfy.
Face to watch: Flume
This Sydney glitch-electronica whizkid beat One Direction to the top of the Australian charts with his woozily alluring self-titled debut LP – and should hold UK audiences similarly captive when he releases it here on 18 February£320, coggles.com
Lexpionage: Glampaign, n
A series of savvy sartorial operations undertaken on red carpets from December to March to emphasise one's timeless sophistication and thus aid the pursuit of an Academy Award. Should never involve fishtails, quirky bow ties or creases.
