We love… Simone’s spirit
With London Fashion Week getting underway this week, attendees often find themselves in dire need of a drink or two which is why the collaboration between designer Simone Rocha and Cointreau is a welcome one. You’ll find us propping up the pop-up bar at St Martin’s Lane hotel.
11th – 22nd September, St Martins Lane Hotel, London, W1
We’re not sure about… Gothic gobs
It seems even dental hygiene isn’t immune to seasonal trends with the newest innovation of black toothpaste tying in well with the grungy mood of autumn/winter. Beverly Hills Formula’s new product uses activated charcoal which is a highly effective stain remover as well as gothic and on trend.
Beverly Hills Perfect White Black, £4.99, superdrug.com
We’re buying… McQueen memoir
In this new coffee table tome, photographer Nick Waplington documents the creative process of the late, great Alexander McQueen and his team in the run-up to the fall 2009 show, the designer’s penultimate collection. Working Process by Nick Waplington
We can’t wait for… Stylish screen
Fashion and film are joining forces this weekend at London’s St Martin’s Courtyard when the shopping destination will be transformed into an open air movie theatre. Zoolander and The September Issue are amongst the fashionable flicks being screened and there’ll also be nibbles on offer from local restaurants.

We’re saving up for…Click couture
Trawling through endless rails in search of a piece of vintage gold is never an appealing idea, even for the most patient of shoppers. Forget rummaging through rubbish because specialist vintage emporium WilliamVintage has launched an online shop where you’ll be able to find genuine vintage couture at the click of the button.
