Fashion: Evening, all

There's no greater marker of the rise of British menswear over the past decade than the evolution of Topman – once a store offering 50 varieties of combat trouser, now synonymous with forward-thinking-but-affordable style. Its latest move is its new Lux collection, a modern eveningwear range (T-shirts from £25, suits from £300) featuring the cobalt three-piece above alongside everything from bomber jackets to document holders. Launches 7 March, topman.com

Face to watch: Gamu Nhenghu

The young singer was notoriously dumped from the 2010 series of The X Factor at Judges' Houses, but may prove there is life after reality TV yet: her debut single "Shake the Room", released 14 March, is a snappy retro-soul number

App watch: Tamagotchi

The latest product of the burgeoning 1990s revival is this Android update of the pet-simulator-cum-former schoolyard standard. As before, you must work to ensure your cutesy alien is suitably loved, fed and watered, while keeping it from death by suffocation in a pile of its own faeces. Free from Google Play

Lexpionage: Mantelist, n.

A brave but foolhardy person who chooses a public platform to pronounce on a previously irreproachable public figure who also happens to be a possible future queen. See also, Morrissey

Music: Haim

The sisterly soft-rock trio may have topped this year's BBC Sound of… poll, but their new single, the dreamy "Falling", suggests they may just rise above such ominous hype-generation. Have a listen here: bit.ly/XuSRqx
