Slam dunk

For those who don't fancy soggy toes this "summer", boots are the new sandals – and these fancy Pro Leather Suede basketball models from Converse are our pick of the bunch. Available in various vibrant shades including varsity red, yellow and green, they are the perfect balance of the practical and the frivolous. Available next month, £60, nationwide

Wings of desire

Heathrow? Gatwick? You don't need to endure those summer queues – instead, be among the first to try the brand-new air route from little-known Cambridge airport to Dole in the beautiful and relatively undiscovered Jura region in France. The flight time is just two hours. Flights from £65 one way at danubewings.eu

Transports of delight

These new Literary Transport notebooks from Wild & Wolf promise to "transport you elsewhere". Each one is named after a classic book and designed in the style of a vintage London bus blind relating to places mentioned in the story. There are 10 to choose from. £9.95 each, from wildandwolf.com

Through the keyhole

Juergen Teller's latest book, The Keys to the House, is a collection of snaps of the distinguished photographer's life at and around his Suffolk home. £39, published by MACK, steidlville.com

Hanging cool

Next month Cornwall Design Fair will see thousands of contemporary craft-enthusiasts descend on Penzance. From 17-19 August, there will be furniture, textiles, lighting, jewellery and accessories galore, including this slick Peanut Feeder by Green & Blue, £39.95. cornwalldesignfair.co.uk

Juliette Binoche has her locks tousled at Massato's revered Paris salons – and now you can too as the Japanese hair wizard, whose looks have graced the covers of Vogue, opens his first London shop on Fulham Road. He is only in town for one week of each month but his team of protegés are on-hand year-round. 54 Fulham Road, SW3, 020-3620 6183
