STYLE Update Here Comes the Bride So many designers now seem to be singing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to launching bridal collections. And next in line is loungewear designer Olivia von Halle, whose first collection has just launched on Net-a-Porter. Taking inspiration from “the idea of starting your marriage afresh with a beautiful collection which sees you through your wedding day, honeymoon and into married life”, von Halle’s modern take on a traditional wedding trousseau includes decadent chemises, pyjamas and nightgowns crafted in rich Italian silk and hand-corded lace; everything a bride could possibly need to kick off the honeymoon in the right way.

Best Foot Forward Described by Salvatore Ferragamo as the ‘ambassador of unspoken elegance’, the round-toed ballerina shoe was first made famous by Audrey Hepburn back in 1954. Now, some 60 years later, the humble ballet pump remains a staple for many of our summer wardrobes and has received a modern makeover in Ferragamo’s newest collection. Expect everything from nautical stripes to glossy reds and even shiny, summery sequins.

Car Park Couture London Fashion Week is waving goodbye to Somerset House and moving to Soho for spring/summer 2016. The newest location for the internationally esteemed event is set to be Brewer Street car park – a decision that reportedly echoes a wider transition in the fashion world. According to Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, the move will allow designers to showcase their work in “one of London’s most vibrant, diverse and creative hubs”. Soho, not the car park that is.

Summer Sophistication It’s rare a thing for a bag to achieve sophisticated status while remaining playful and young at heart. However, Mulberry’s Bayswater collection is proving to be an exception to the rule by injecting a splash of colour into our summer work wardrobe. With several eye-popping shades, from satsuma orange to jungle green, the bag's internal straps allow you to adjust compartment sizes depending on the amount of junk in your trunk.
