We love: Flying colours

From Hayworth to Fairclough the name Rita conjures up a lady of distinctive style. Acne's shearling flying jacket - updated in acid brights for the new season - certainly meets the criteria of the moniker.

We're buying: Get knotted

We're booking: Lady Diana

In her own words legendary Harper's Bazaar and Vogue editor Diana Vreeland was "the one and only fashion editor" and her life and legacy is celebrated in this new film of archive footage and contributions from leading fashion creatives.

The Eye Has To Travel is released on 21 September.
