An colour saturated impressionist scene on a man’s shirt, and tile print trousers. All in silk. All a bit gap year meets luxury lounge-wear meets modern work-wear.
Lindsay Dixon being photographed by Terry Richardson for Purple magazine. The crazy paving on her jumper is genius.
Zoe Kravitz in boyfriend jeans and a crop top which looks like its by Pucci or Versace. Whoever it’s by, the body conscious style contrasts so well with the baggy jeans, and the Ikat/Egyptian mix print is ace.

Julia Markou, Accessories Buyer at online fashion empire ASOS has bought into fedoras for spring: ‘we tend to sell hats during festival and holiday periods year after year, so tend to stick with it. We predict that fedoras will be the ‘it’ hat this summer. They nod to the 1970s revival trend, which is huge this season’.

These ones by Urban Outfitters (£20) and ASOS (£22) are just as good:
