Monday 06 May 2013
We're can't wait for…
Feel in need of historical inspiration? Then In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion might be just the ticket. The exhibition of paintings, drawings and clothing charts royal fashion in the 16th and 17th centuries, all in the fitting surroundings of Buckingham Palace. 10 May – 6 October, royalcollection.org.uk
We're saving up for…
My-wardrobe.com has welcomed a new brand on board: Math, a label created by Shahzad Mohayudin, which features a mix of minimalist designs in colour-block patterns using a mix of luxurious leathers and tweeds. Box panel jacket £532, Math, my-wardrobe.com
Fair-weather cyclists may catch flak from more dedicated road racers, but there's a joy in a free-wheel to work not matched by slogging it out in the rain. These summery saddles from Brooks are further temptation from over-heating on public transport. B-17 saddle £70, brooksengland.com
We're not sure about…
Scientist Jean-Denis Rouillon has claimed that bra-wearing is pointless, but lingerie retailer Rigby & Peller has reaffirmed the bra's boon to posture and sag prevention. These bras are not for burning. Diamant bra £160, Rigby & Peller, 0845 076 5545
Smells like summer

The collection includes scents from the Far East and Provence to help us on a great escape – if only momentarily. Collection De Grasse, £49 each, loccitane.co.uk
