Going up

Mangos ’Tis the season for delicious Alphonsos. With sea bass at Five Rivers, Walsall; filling a whole menu at London’s Jamavar.

Uggly shoes Timberland crossed with Ugg, from For The Memory Of A Lifetime. An ugly trend we can get behind.

Quilting Due a comeback. See Arrange Whatever Pieces’ architectural quilts and Pennsylvanian quilted fabric from Batsheva.

Watch collaboration Fossil x Crosley

Record timings Turntable-inspired accessories from Fossil watches xCrosley.

Tubes For cosmetics, not commuters. Recycle to be eco-friendly.

The undomesticated goddess Celebrate your inner goddess (Beyoncé kind, not cupcake) with a talisman necklace by Goddess Charms.

Going down

Boohoo boho Just not quite the same, is it?

‘Hairband’ Entry-level fashion vocab. Replace with “diadem”. Monki have.

Book store bags The way to signal your cleverness is now an art gallery tote. Gagosian works.

Toilet anxiety The kind that comes from wearing a boilersuit and needing to strip semi-naked on the loo. Check that lock thrice.

FaceTime The blue light from our phones is ageing our faces with wrinkles. Turn it down low (or opt for a skin shield like Trilogy’s).

The privileged sandal Soft buttery leather in a fresh, light colour for summer? Lovely. Unless you actually plan to wear them outdoors.
