The Fashion Audit: Glassworks Studio, QR codes, LouLou and Olympic ambitions
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We Love: Glassworks Studio
One of The Audit's favourite virtual-shopping sites has sprung to life with a pop-up shop hosting a brilliant edit of sought-after brands.
Until 11 February, 9 Mercer Street, St Martin's Courtyard.
We're not sure about: QR codes
Like Lana Del Ray's management team, the people behind QR codes need to stop trying to make their product happen. The latest platform for the barcode is a T-shirt that, when scanned, allows the wearer to impart a message. "You're with stupid," perhaps.
We're buying: Loopy for LouLou
A seemingly innocuous tuxedo-stripe of pastel colour that taps into this season's trend for coloured denim hides a much more fun secret – it will glow neon under UV light. The perfect solution for any desk-to-dancefloor dilemma.
LouLou by Hudson jeans, £250, selfridges.com
We can't wait for: Her Majesty's images
Of course images of Queen Elizabeth are everywhere, but how closely do you actually look at her visage as you hand over a tenner? A fascinating new exhibition brings together Cecil Beaton's images of her from three decades, including portraits of the young princess, her growing family and her coronation.
From 8 February, vam.ac.uk
We're collecting: Olympic ambitions
As the sporting event of the year grows ever closer, a host of designers are dabbling in all things athletic. Cycling enthusiast Paul Smith is one of the first off the starting block with a selection of commemorative stamps for the Isle of Man post office.
