The Fashion Audit: Agi & Sam, cellulite tights, Sibling and Pudsey

What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We love: Watch the birdy

Bright young menswear designers Agi & Sam have branched out into womenswear with an exclusive capsule collection for Harvey Nichols. We love the London duo's kooky poultry-print shirt – mallards aren't just for living room walls, after all.

From £270, harveynichols.com

We're not sure about: Cellulite tights

Science is a wonderful thing: it can help a man jump from the edge of space and apparently get rid of cellulite with a pair of tights. If your hosiery is simply squashing lumps and bumps, it's basically underperforming.

£39.99, myshapesuk.com

We're buying: Sister sister

The riotous London label Sibling proves that knitting is certainly not just for nanas and a sequinned, leopard-print cardie knitted in neon wool is hardly likely to be seen in the Post Office on pension day.

Cardigan £310, Sibling for Lulu & Co, asos.com

We can't wait for: Bear necessities

After the success of last year's designer Pudsey collaboration for Children in Need, the bear is back, and he's been made over by more than 30 high-fashion names including Balenciaga, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Prada. On show at the London and Manchester Selfridges until 14 November when they will be auctioned off for the charity.


We're saving up for: Heart to heart

Wearing your heart on your sleeve – well, chest – doesn't get much ritzier than this. A new jewellery line from designer Louise Carter focuses on charm pendants constructed of baguette-cut diamonds and 18-carat gold.
