Monday 29 April 2013

A new organic tanning water uses caramel as a colourant to achieve a sun-kissed glow. While the shade might be spot on, we can't help but think that it all sounds a bit sticky. Just make sure you don't drink it. £16.95, kpourkarite.co.uk
Mind the (baby) gap
New to Gap Kids is the second collection by Diane von Furstenberg. The colourful offering was inspired by an exotic adventure with animal illustrations and African-inspired prints. Sizes range from newborn to age 14, leaving us wondering whether there's any chance anything might fit us. gap.co.uk

In the saddle
So much more than Birkin bags and silk scarves, Hermes' version of stealth uber-wealth has made it one of the most covetable labels around. Sadly a visit to the upcoming Festival des Métiers is probably the closest The Audit will get to its heirloom pieces. 21-27 May, Saatchi Gallery, London SW3, free admission
The annual Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign sees brands going all-out to boost funds to fight the disease. This year Topshop has created a slogan T-shirt and pencil skirt, to spread the “Love”. Fashionable and philanthropic, you can't argue with that. T-shirt £18, topshop.co.uk
