Fashion: The new gold standard
Now entering its third season of It-bag status, Yves Saint Laurent's stylish Cabas Chyc tote is released this summer in a cool gold version. As sported by the ineffable Mariacarla Boscono in the house's ad campaign, it's a sure-fire hit for the warmer weather – and a fitting tribute to designer Stefano Pilati's final season at the label. £1,660, ysl.com
Face to watch: Joseph Gilgun
If you recognise the 28-year-old as sad clown Woody from This is England or loveable loser Rudy from Misfits, prepare to be shocked by his next role: glass-eyed and tattoed as the villain in Hollywood prison sci-fi Lockout, out on Friday.
