What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We love… Perfect match
Retailer Matchesfashion.com has teamed up with London Fashion Week favourite Erdem, to launch an exclusive collaboration. The six-piece collection which is online now, is a departure for the dress-loving designer, with a focus on daywear. A collector’s dream, the range includes blouses, trousers and polo-shirts all featuring iconic prints from the Erdem archives. From £540, matchesfashion.com
We’re not sure about…Pink peepers
The catwalk-inspired trend for pink eyeshadow is only for the bravest of beauty buffs. Seen here on models at Donna Karan’s spring/summer show, the look involves a slick of cerise shadow on and around your lids. Proceed with extreme caution though – one slip of the hand and “style” all-too-easily becomes “stye”. And The Audit doesn’t just mean on a keyboard.
We’re buying… Not just for men
Who says swim-shorts have to be just for men? Orlebar Brown upped the pool-side ante when it launched men’s tailored trunks and now a new collection of sporty styles for women boasts the same tailored approach, as well as a few itsy-bitsy bikinis for good measure. Ipanema bikini £215, net-a-porter.com
We can’t wait for…RiRi red
No stranger to collaborations, MAC’s latest star is none other than bad gal Rihanna. The collection created by the lady herself includes a powder blush duo in bronze and coral, a rose gold highlighter and three shades of lipsticks with a retro matte finish. RiRi Woo £14, from 20 June, maccosmetics.co.uk
We’re visiting… Booted out
London designer Lou Dalton has turned her talent to cobbling and teamed up with heritage British boot brand Grenson. The resulting style is an interpretation of the monkey boot with details such as a square toe and padding around the ankles inspired by workwear safety styles. £495, doverstreetmarket.com
