We love… Urban beach
Ferociously chic fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell has teamed up with Paper Mache Tiger to open a curated boutique in London’s Shoreditch, featuring a hip mix of designers and artists. Farfetch.com is hosting a virtual version. Beach In The East, 123 Clifton St, London EC2A
We’re not sure about…Smurf styling
The newest trend in haircare this season is temporary colours in Technicolor shades of blue, yellow and green. An immediate and ingenious way to cobble together a new hairdo, some may say, but licking your locks with lurid hues is a hair-brained grooming habit we won’t be getting on board with. Paintbox in turquoise blue, £9.25, Fudge; fudgehair.co.uk
We’re buying… Mario’s Mate
Mario Testino has turned his talents to fashion design for a collection of clothing and accessories available from Net-a-porter.com. A percentage of the sales is being donated to Mate, the institution founded by Testino to promote arts in his birthplace of Lima, Peru. Mario Testino for Mate, from £115, net-a-porter.com
We can’t wait for…Festival fresh
Here at the Audit we are eagerly anticipating the start of festival season – but the one aspect of musical gatherings we can do without is the questionable hygiene. Luckily, Birchbox is at hand with its June box of festival essentials to help you make it through Glasto et al smelling of roses. Birchbox, £10 per month; birchbox.co.uk
We’re visiting… Clothing comebacks
Drippy, hippy Brit label Fenn Wright Manson is enjoying a long-overdue makeover this season. A new head of ladieswear is on board alongside a fresh design team, piloting the brand in a more contemporary direction. Next week sees the opening of a new store in Westfield, London, on 13 June. fennwrightmanson.com
