As a family of four, we got through an awful lot of water bottles, even though we refilled them at fountains where we could.

EAR PLAY Listen up! This season, the simple gold hoop is no longer going to cut it in the jewellery stakes, as earrings have gone bigger and bolder than ever. So, lend an ear to a sculptural piece or a colour-block number for an instant outfit update. 90S REMIX Inspired by the west London style scene in the 90s, renowned Brit stylist Bay Garnett and M.i.h Jeans have produced a special eight-piece collection, Golborne Road by Bay Garnett. Studded denim and vintage-esque dresses form the basis of this super-cool collaboration, which aims to mimic when London girls bought from thrift shops and raided their mother’s wardrobes. Wear the pieces together or with worn-in Levi’s and a dash of irreverence. Available at HOT SCHOTTS French label Maje has teamed up with cult US brand Schott…

It represents global culture, which is my main source of inspiration for Emporio, so I felt it was the ideal stage for the show,’ the maestro that is Mr Armani told us.

that’s a good look

‘Next time you’re about to buy something , think, “Will I wear it a minimum of 30 times?” If the answer is yes, then buy it. But you’d be surprised at how many times you say no.’ Livia Firth A right pair E.L.V., aka East London Vintage, produces one-off jeans spliced together from old unwanted pairs. It’s the genius brand founded by fashion stylist Anna Foster and vintage expert Kari Greaves, who say, ‘It takes 10,000 litres of water to make one pair of new jeans. By reusing discarded pairs we create modern styles that don’t damage our ecosystem.’ There’s even a bespoke, made-to-measure service. Prices from £290.
