We love...

Balthazar

Forget the myth that fashion and food don’t mix. There was much excitement among guests at the London shows that the New York institution has finally opened a brasserie and two super chic bakeries on this side of the Pond. Yes, that’s the sound of our tummies rumbling you can hear.

We're not sure about...

Me and Mariah

In the battle for supremacy between the American Idol judges, The Audit is Team Carey all the way. At the risk of incurring the online wrath of Nicki Minaj’s militant fans, it just can’t get behind this new scent from the princess of pink.

We're buying...

Pinko bags

Revealed just days ago at a fashion-week event in Milan, Pinko has teamed up with the organisation Fashion 4 Development to relaunch the brand’s iconic totes of the Nineties, this time working with skilled craftspeople in Ethiopia for a project with trade, not aid, at its heart. £65, pinko.it

We can’t wait for…

Raf Simons for Adidas

Clumpy and colourful, ugly shoes are great! Even more so when they are as comfy as they look – no plasters here, please. The new designs by Raf Simons for Adidas are a thing of orthopaedic excellence. Just a shame we have to wait until autumn to get our hands, and poor feet, on them. adidas.co.uk

We can’t wait for…

New LN-CC

Just in time for the influx of new fashions, one of the best London shopping spots, the LN-CC, has given its unique bricks-and-mortar store a makeover. With brands such as Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander and Rick Owens, the work of the excellent buying team is definitely going to get us in hot water with the bank manager. ln-cc.com
