The Fashion Audit: Father's Day, Sheer Delights, J Brand Nation and Pop!
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Daddy dearest
Papa Audit is certainly a dapper Dan, so this new toiletries set from Aesop is the perfect way to say thanks a million this Father's Day. Aw, shucks.
The Dapper Gentleman £106, Aesop, mrporter.com
We're not sure about: Sheer delights
Since a certain young brunette – you know the one: big church do last year, fancy dress, extra day off – has a predilection for sheer hose you wouldn't think the tight purveyors of the world need be reduced to such indefensible tactics as these fake-tan impregnated tights.
We're buying: J brand nation
Who wouldn't want Caleb or Aiden to be their new boyfriend? We're not talking about rough- and-ready young chaps though, but the new boyfriend-style jeans from J Brand that are set to become fast favourites.
Caleb, £230, liberty.co.uk; Aiden £260, harrods.com
We can't wait for: Pop!
It seems fitting that pop culture – and the Swinging Sixties scene that was its apogee, led by designers such as Mary Quant – is celebrated in a year when all eyes are on our capital. This exhibition brings together fashion, art and design from 1950s rock'n'rollers to the Punk explosion of the Seventies.
From 6 July, Fashion and Textile Museum, London SE1
We're getting it right: Hat tricks
The jubilee is over but with headgear Dos and Don'ts fresh in our minds, it's high time to think about hats for Ascot, especially as fascinators have been banned from the Royal Enclosure. Milliner Piers Atkinson is on hand at the St Martins Lane Hotel to ensure standards don't slip.
Until 30 June, WC2
