Agenda: Sophie Hulme; Cocknbullkid; Another Earth; Rock Lobsta

Fashion: Hulme delivery

Sophie Hulme has gone from strength to strength since graduating as Student of the Year in 2007 from Kingston University. With her collections now stocked in b Store and Opening Ceremony, the designer has had a vote of confidence from the industry and shoppers alike. And why not? Her masculine-informed tailoring and severe cuts are perfect for now, while you should start saving for the sleek and boxy leather handbags from the autumn/winter 2011 range.

Face to watch: Cocknbullkid

It's been three years since this DIY diva, aka Anita Blay, first caught our ear but debut album Adulthood (out 23 May) is an assured coming of age. Wedding electro-pop litheness to Motown sass, it's primed for lazy days rotation

Lexpionage: Gagic, n.

The art of maintaining an illusory public image via invisible legal rulings. Invisible, that is, except to a few thousand media professionals and their assorted buddies
