We can't wait for… Posh pong
If you're finding it hard to escape some of the more unsavoury aromas that this warm weather is producing, then head down to Harrods. From next week, the store is holding “Fragrance Explosion”, a month-long event that will see perfumers from brands including Jo Malone, Floris, Roja Dove and Atkinsons host specialist workshops.
22 August – 19 September, harrods.com
We're visiting… Paul's pop-up
This month, the Paul Smith boutique in London's Borough Market is sporting a rather eclectic makeover as it showcases a collection created by Toyko store Bunkaya Zakkaten. Think classic English design meets quirky Japanese kitsch.
Until 29 August, 13 Park Street, SE1
We love… Designer dolls
Barbie is showing that her true colours are not necessarily pink thanks to a makeover by preppy label Coach. The diminutive doll sports a trench coat, striped sweater and suede skirt accessorised to a tee with a miniaturised “Duffle” handbag. Perfect for those who haven't quite grown out of playing with dolls.
£95, Coach, 020 3141 8901
We're not sure about… Tacky tux
In an effort to smarten up the act of lounging around, Pot Noodle has developed a tuxedo that comes in the form of a onesie. Gents take note – we'd rather you were sitting on the sofa in holey pants and a string vest than subject us to this bizarre pyjama/black tie hybrid.
We're buying… Rock on
To celebrate its rock-inspired new collection, Converse is taking over The Circle, a tattoo parlour in Soho, and will give fans the opportunity to get inked by an impressive guest list of artists. There will also be special performances from the likes of Pure Love. Banging.
