Bags of style

March on

Head for the hills this coming Jubilee weekend, to the new Welsh Coastal Path in Carmarthenshire. From 1-4 June, the Llanelli Festival of Walks weaves through hidden villages, breathtaking ridges and sandy dunes across Llanelli, Brecon Beacons and Carmarthenshire. £6 per person per walk, book at llanelliramblers.org.uk

What a pair

Belgian designers Muller Van Severen combine industrial materials with "traditional kitchen colours" – red for meat, green for veg. The result? Swoonsome furniture, such as this illuminated 'seat for two' – yours for €3,900 (£3,123). To buy, contact valerietraan.be; 00 32 475 75 94 59

Mix and match

Waste not, want not. Topshop debut their 'upcycled' capsule collection, starring off-key jersey dresses, denim rucksacks and two-tone jeans. All fashioned from off-cuts and excess stock. From 8 June; topshop.com

Ding dong!

Big Ben is about to join the skyline of international miniatures in Lego's Architecture range, which already includes the Guggenheim Museum, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House and the Sydney Opera House. Back off, kids! £24.99, from 2 June, architecture.lego.com

Go veggie

The Onion's Great Escape is no ordinary children's story. Tear along perforated lines and each beautifully-drawn page peels away; by the last page, the book – by Italian illustrator Sara Fanelli – folds into an onion. More alluring in real life than it sounds, and no smell. £14.95, Phaidon
