Fashion's all about evolution and revolution. Particularly in the pursuit of the new, and youthful. The Lanvin autumn/winter 2014 collection was both: at least, on paper. The styles referenced eighties new-wave, skinny models with partially-shaved hairstyles marching out in acid-bright varsity-jackets, skinny ties and giant trainers like characters from a Bret Easton Ellis novel.

Do you like high-heeled loafers?" asked Kitty, 13, brandishing a copy of Grazia that included a full-page selection of the footwear in question. "I suppose they're quite good for women who don't like wearing girlish heels," I replied. "Or even for women who don't like wearing women's clothes," added Joe, 11, neatly summing up his mother's personal style – and it's true that high-heeled loafers are a feminine twist on an essentially masculine wardrobe staple.

Easter weekend is always a great time for bargain hunters and this year looks set to be no exception. Several major retailers are hosting sales including House of Fraser, Halfords and, perhaps more predictably, Thorntons the chocolatier. Thorntons's offer is three-for-two on Easter gifts plus a free box of chocolates worth £13.99 with all orders over £20 when using the discount code EA44. Meanwhile, both House of Fraser and Halfords have up to 50 per cent off dozens of items in store and online. The produce they sell may be entirely different but both retailers are clearly using the bank holiday spirit to attract new customers to their stores.
