We Love: Pringle patchwork

Abstract blocks of contrasting colours and fabrics are woven together in this new capsule collection of designs by the Turner Prize-nominated artist Liam Gillick.

We're not sure about: Back in the corset

After Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery raved about the posture improving aspects of being trussed up in a boned bodice all day while in character, they're – apparently – suddenly pitched for a relaunch.

We're buying: Pyjama party

Sleepover separates may be a big fashion story this season, but actual nightwear shouldn't be neglected either. The purveyor of the best mannish silk shirts in the business, Equipment has now branched out into the bedroom with this luxurious set.

We can't wait for: Back to black

We're not being dictated to: Leap of faith
