Peace-sign jewellery

This free-loving symbol from the 1960s is popping up everywhere, from Chanel to cool new brand AS29 (above) at Lane Crawford.

Man sandals

Dressier than flip flops, they're more structured and can be worn with trousers but still look good with shorts.

The Lucky dress by Issa

Apparently it's this summer's Roland Mouret Galaxy dress.

Isla Moda

An island dedicated to fashion that's being built in Dubai. It will be replete with a hotel and 80 homes designed by Karl Lagerfeld. Fabulous or what?


Trucker caps

You've had so many warnings, yet every summer they reappear, worn, curiously, balanced on top of the head.

The 'morning after' look

Popularised by stars such as Lily Allen and Lou Doillon. Being caught during the day in your spangly club gear is manky, not chic.

Astrologically themed handbags

Certain designers are running out of ideas.

Crocodile Birkins for men

Once we'd seen Pharell Williams wearing a purple pair, we totally lost interest.
