The Fashion Audit: 31/10/2011


We Love: Pyrus & Simeon Farrar

To celebrate the show of his work in the basement gallery below its Soho store, Pyrus has launched a limited edition of screenprinted T-shirts by Farrar, continuing his 'Of Rainbows and Halos' theme. 10 Newburgh Street, W1F 7RN


We're not sure about: Hotpants

We know women don't sweat, they merely glow. Well, prepare to glow your behind off. These shorts have been designed to ramp up your body heat, burning up calories and claiming to shift two jeans sizes in two weeks.


We're buying: Worthy of note

Bright young thing Jonathan Saunders has teamed up with Establishment favourite Smythson to produce diaries and notebooks in block coloured goatskin with velvet, brushed gold and enamel detailing. Lined in the Scot's signature print, these will make even a shopping list chic.

From £110, 0845 873 2435

We can't wait for: Fashion's Oscars

Voting for the British Style Award is now open ahead of the British Fashion Awards on 28 November. Have your say on who you think is a sartorial star and you could win a pair of tickets to attend the ceremony among the great and the good.


We're saving up for: Prada Montagna

If you're swish enough to be heading to the slopes soon, and you're not flying with Stavros, then this capsule collection of skiwear is for you. Featuring down jackets and gilets, gloves and Alpaca knits. Chic even on the bunny slopes.

From £175, prada.com
