Agenda: Topshop's Secret Store; SJ Watson; Psychoville; Breakin' Convention; Santigold

Fashion: Undercover chic

Hidden gems verily await at Topshop's Secret Store, a hush-hush pop-up space launching in its Oxford St branch in late May. Fortuitous shoppers will be rewarded with a tightly edited selection of collaborations with designers including Meadham Kirchoff and Ann-Sofie Back alongside pieces from the Topshop Boutique range.

4. Sometimes I just can't stop myself, I think it might have been that orange shirt got me all excited...
