What To Do, See & Buy: Whistles; Jimmy Cliff; Robert Capa; George & Jorgen; the Flower Appreciation Society

 

Whistle stop

When it comes to fun, grown-up high-street fashion, Whistles has it sussed – and this season doesn't disappoint, with floral pyjama suits and block-stripes galore. Just add Hepburn-esque sunglasses and a gold pendant. We're taken with this owl number, which at £35, will fly off the shelves. Whistles.co.uk

Beat master

Following a mighty performance at Glastonbury Festival, reggae king Jimmy Cliff returns to the UK on 18 May in London, and Birmingham on 20 May. Expect previews from his new album, alongside euphoric renditions of "You Can Get It If You Really Want". We really do. Book now at jimmycliff.com

Shooting the enemy

Robert Capa: The Paris Years 1933-1954 by Bernard Lebrun and Michel Lefebvre, showcases the work of the pre-eminent photojournalist, including rare shots from the Spanish Civil War. £24.99, abramsbooks.co.uk

On the mark

Bermondsey, south-east London, is a hotbed of artists' studios. What better spot for George & Jorgen, a new gallery – next to White Cube – which opens with a show from RA graduate Chris Baker? Georgeandjorgen.com

Petal power

The Flower Appreciation Society has just the thing to get you in the mood for spring, with a charming selection of country-garden blooms and wild foliage. Each sprig is hand-picked by textile designers-turned-petal enthusiasts Anna and Ellie. Perfect for Mother's Day. From £35; deliveries within London; theflowerappreciationsociety.co.uk

Clean cut

There's something terribly sweet about the old public service announcements, however bossy – and this advert for the Ministry of Housing and Local Government from the 1960s is no exception. Now, for the first time, you can buy Tom Eckersley's 'Keep Britain Tidy'. £9.50, exclusively at vandashop.com
