The Fashion Audit: Longchamp, python-embossed manicure and cuddly companions
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We Love: Totes amaze
If you're shy and retiring look away now – Jeremy Scott channels his maximal aesthetic into baroque baggage for Longchamp's legendary lightweight Le Pliage holdall combining curlicues and leopard print.
We're not sure about: Hiss-teria
Yes it's the year of the snake, but there's such a thing as taking a trend too far. The Audit can't help but feel that a python-embossed manicure is one way to do so – no matter how easy it is to achieve at home thanks to the special magnet in the lid.
Repstyle collection, £9.99 Essie, Boots and Superdrug nationwide
We're buying: Flashes of brilliance
Faced with interminably long nights, spring still seems ages away. It's lucky, then, that there's plenty of neon in the pieces on sale right now. From full-on fluro footwear from Kat Maconie to love-heart-shaped accents on this Chinti and Parker cashmere knit, you'll definitely be seen in the dark.
We can't wait for: Artist's impression
Photographer Thomas Zanon-Larcher has long worked for Alexander McQueen, Yohji Yamamoto, and Martin Margiela so the cream of the fashion crop will be clamouring to attend Falling: A Part, his solo exhibition later this month.
From 25 January, The Wapping Project Bankside, London SE1
We're dreaming of: Cuddly companions
Canines are top dog once again. At last week's menswear shows, dog models stole the show at Oliver Spencer while E Tautz celebrated the kitsch appeal of Wally Dugs in knitwear. More immediate doggy desires can be met in the latest Lashes of London lookbook shot in a pet store.
