The Audit: Tory Burch's debut collection; Roberto Cavalli to design costumes for Miley Cyrus' tour; first ever ready-to-wear collection from Thom Sweeney


We love…

American dream

Tory Burch is the latest designer clothing label to lend her talents to the lucrative world of beauty. Her debut collection is typically preppy and includes a zingy fragrance and a makeup collection of understated pinks and nudes.

From £22, exclusive to Harrods

We’re not sure about…

Costume drama

The costumes for Miley Cyrus’ upcoming (and so tastefully named) tour Bangerz will be created by none other than Roberto Cavalli. Expect to see quite a lot of Miley; sketches of the designs include a bodysuit with a mere smattering of crystals to cover her (ahem) dignity.

What’s Neuw

No not a typo, Neuw is the name of a denim brand from down-under launching this week in the UK. Founded from an obsession with vintage jeans the label fuses heritage technique with more modern fabric innovations.

From £120, selfridges.com

We can’t wait for…

Loubie ladies

Those iconic red soles created an entire generation of footwear obsessed females but it’s not just feet that Monsieur Louboutin is concerned with. This week the first ever retail space dedicated entirely to Christian Louboutin handbags opens in Harvey Nichols London. 


We’re saving up for…

Sweeney’s togs

Fans of bespoke tailors Thom Sweeney will be happy to hear the news that the label is launching its first ever ready-to-wear collection exclusively online at mrporter.com. While the prices aren’t exactly pocket change, they are significantly cheaper than the very costly made-to-measure options.
