We love: Curiouser and curiouser
Forget apples, chocolate bars and crisps, the coolest vending machine in town dispenses quirky design pieces and objets d'art at the touch of a button. Curated by Luna & Curious, Semi-Automatic is the antidote to the fusty hotel gift shop. St Martin's Lane Hotel, London WC2
We're not sure about: Get the look
There's no denying that, for retailers, invoking the Duchess of Cambridge's name is a licence to print money. Taking the style stalking one step further is Kate's Style List, an app that lists what the Duchess wears to every engagement. 69p, itunes.com
We're buying: Brolly good
Wet-look hair may be an easy style to pull off on the catwalk, but having been caught in a few rain showers of late, The Audit is happy to leave it to the pros. Instead we'll be investing in this sturdy brolly – the fruit of a collaboration between London Undercover and YMC. £70, londonundercover.co.uk
We can't wait for: Retro futures
The thirst for vintage shows little sign of abating and not just from those with a fondness for looking backwards. An event during London Fashion Week will explore the relationship between period design and future trends via a fashion show and party. Prom dresses at the ready. 15 September, fashionretrospective.com
We're tickled by: Hello, soldier
Jimmy Choo has reinterpreted the classic camouflage print for the new season and the subtly hidden burlesque silhouettes adorn shoes, belts and bags. With Prince Harry's latest antics in mind, perhaps he should get his army gear run up in the print. From £265, jimmychoo.com
