Agenda: Bottega Veneta; Ben Wheatley; Brighton Comedy Festival; Mary

Tomas Maier is the minimalist mastermind whose quietly luxurious collections for Bottega Veneta have been captivating fans since 2001. This season, he turns his hand to an understated but important accessory: fragrance. The new Bottega perfume has notes of bergamot, patchouli and jasmine to create a memorable and classic scent, which is nonetheless kept current through the startling beauty of Nine d'Urso, daughter of model Inès de la Fressange, who is the fresh face of the campaign. bottegaveneta.co.uk
