The Fashion Audit: Go girl, Save The Dolphin, and Engrave name here...
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Go girl
We’re all about a bit of girl power at The Audit and the images created by Helena Christensen and Jen Carey for Rika magazine featuring the likes of Julianne Moore modelling the fashion garment of the moment, the sweatshit, are full to the brim with just that.

We’re not sure about: Save The Dolphin
The fashion pack loves to get down and dirty after hours at The Dolphin pub in Hackney, east London, so it’s sad to learn that the local watering hole is under threat of extinction. But fear not, party people – the campaign to save it has just what all modern rabble-rousers need: a hashtag. #savethedolphin
We’re buying: Fifty shades
It’s rather hot out there – don’t tell me you hadn’t noticed. Were the people melting into puddles on the pavement not a bit of a giveaway? If your purse strings won’t stretch to an easy, breezy Savile Row-tailored summer suit, a pair of sunglasses from Hardy Amies’ spiffy collection will help to keep your cool.
We can’t wait for: Elk in the city
Those with a keen eye will have spotted the gothic inspired designs of jewellery brand Elkin on the wrists and necks of fashionable folk. And now the brand is hosting its very first pop-up shop in London, which will stock all manner of charming pieces and celebrate the launch of its brand spanking new website too.
‘Straight to the heart’ necklace £75, 29 July-4 August, Kingly Court, W1, elkinlondon.com
We’re saving up for: Engrave name here
“Limited edition” and “bespoke” are phrases up there with “shoe sale” to set the heart a-flutter. A new first-come-first-served service from Central Saint Martins alumnus Kzeniya uses the perspex on her best-selling clutches as a blank canvas for your chosen design.
From £250, kzeniya.com
