The Fashion Audit: Shady lady / Becks' bod / Lovely lingerie


We love… Shady lady

Sunglasses are great accessories, not just for the fashion factor but they're actually pretty useful, too. Upping the practicality, Ray Ban has launched a compact version of its Clubmaster style which folds up into a pocket-friendly size.

£179, Sunglass Hut, 0844 264 0860

We're not sure about… Becks' bod

In the latest campaign for H&M's bodywear David Beckham has once again stripped off to reveal himself in (almost) all his glory. While he does boast a rather fine form, we can't help but think we've seen it one too many times.

Prices from £14.99, H&M,

We're buying… Lovely lingerie

Slobbing around the house is about to get much more stylish with the new collection designed by luxury loungewear label Aloe for high-street store & Other Stories. The collection includes printed playsuits, silk kimonos and pretty lingerie all inspired by dancewear.

Playsuit £45,

We can't wait for…Cashmere kudos

Cashmere is well known for being a luxurious fabric, but it's not always known as the most fashion forward. Hoping to change that is the new contemporary collection Lab Line from Eric Bompard that makes use of new technologies for innovative designs.

From £520, Eric Bompard, 29 King's Road, London

We're saving up for… Suffolk style

You've got the Bayswater, lusted after the Alexa, and pined for the Del Ray, but this season the newest addition to Mulberry's covetable bag collection is the Suffolk. More retro-inspired than Mulberry's usual styles, with a doctor's bag shape and a metal-edged frame – and its tag represents the recent price hike.
