The Fashion Audit: Swimming in style / Timely timber / Philanthropic bags
Sunday 26 May 2013
We love… Swimming in style
Topshop is no stranger to collaborations and this summer it has brought on board luxury swimwear label Pistol Panties, famed for its retro take on swimming togs. The mini collection includes statement one-pieces and bikinis for those who like their beachwear bold. From £59, topshop.com
We're not sure about…Timely timber
For most people, choosing a watch requires careful consideration. After all, this type of wristwear is likely to be the most worn item in your wardrobe. WeWOOD's style, made from recycled wood, may appeal to those with eco-warrior tendencies but we can't get past the splinter risk. we-wood.co.uk
We're buying… Philanthropic bags
Do your bit for charity and add to your accessories collection too; Fiorelli has partnered with Cancer Research UK and created the Hope bag. Available in 15 shades, the barrel style is £30 with £5 donated to the charity. It is also hosting pop-up shops at Race For Life locations. fiorelli.com
We can't wait for… The graduates
Those with an eye for fashion and emerging talent should hotfoot it down to Graduate Fashion Week next month. In addition to catwalk shows and exhibitions showcasing student designs, there will be industry talks from Nick Knight and Colin McDowell.

We're visiting… Museum make-up
Transport yourself back to an age where make-up bags were more glamorous than today's workaday ones. A magpie's paradise, Ultra Vanities is full of vintage make-up boxes from the likes of Bulgari, Hermès and Van Cleef & Arpels. Goldsmiths' Hall, London EC2, from 31 May, free admission
