Every girl worth their weight in Prada knows that the latest arrival on Bond Street will be an extra special stop on the shopping trail. Holly Davies goes to shop at Miu Miu.

Fashion: Buy me: Sequined bag by Morgan pounds 19.99

If you have recently visited the section in Selfridges devoted to Prada's younger sister line, the party girl Miu Miu, you'll be aware of the mini-whirlwind frenzy over the most sought-after accessory of the season: the little sequined handbag. It is the sort of thing you used to hanker after as a child because it is so bright and sparkly. The only drawback, as usual, is the price - more than pounds 100 - and the fact that every fashion victim in town has bought up almost the entire stock of the glittery little blighters already.

LONDON FASHION WE; EK: A CAPITAL A TO Z

For weeks, London's fashion world has been preoccupied with one thing: how to get into the Alexander McQueen show at London Fashion Week, opening today. McQueen isn't the only star attraction, though - both Jasper Conran and Vivienne Westwood make their return to the capital's catwalks; while Miu Miu, Prada's younger and more accessible line, arrives in London for the first time. For an insight into who will be who over the coming season, read our A to Z of London Fashion Week
