Summer Blues Set on the seashore between the dunes and the beach of Santa Barbara, Emporio Armani’s SS15 campaign will have you longing for the sun to make an appearance, so you can get your nauticals on. The high summer range features shimmering blue metallics, graphic stripes, and sheer boxy knits, ideal for evenings in the urban heat or late afternoons under the Mediterranean sky.

Suit Up Having gained a reputation for producing some of the finest lux yet laid-back designs, Nicole Farhi invites you to invest in a grown-up ensemble that can take you from day-tonight with the launch of its latest summer suiting range. Offering relaxed tailoring and smart separates, we recommend the Shantung Blazer for a touch of deconstructed eighties style. Shantung silk thread is woven into fine Italian fabric to give an added touch of luxury, helping to make your smart attire feel that little bit more fabulous.

From £125, 27 Hampstead High Street, NW3

No Pain, No Gain The V&A is indulging our passion for heels with a new exhibition examining the transformative power of extreme footwear. Showcasing more than 200 pairs of shoes from across the globe, visitors can expect Invisible Naked Version to find everything from Andreia Chaves, 2011, the sublime (think Ancient Photo by Andrew Bradley Egyptian sandals coated in pure gold leaf) to the downright torturous – beautiful yet agonising lotus shoes from 19th-century China. Shoes: Pleasure and Pain will also feature special editions from more than 70 named designers and promises to be the hottest ticket in town for shoe obsessives everywhere.
