My style pick for this week is this gorgeous Comme Des Garcons wallet from Start London. Mr Start, a past columnist for Brandish, has a great look and I can imagine this item slotting into his vintage chic and classic cool wardrobe quite nicely. The embossed leather is a great cerulean blue, made famous by the brilliant film ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ The wallet has a zip around two sides and an “internal pocket to hold either coins, cards or bills.”

Pictures of the forthcoming Comme des Garçons collection for H&M have been leaked to Fashionista and my intial verdict is thumbs up for the menswear. The women’s collection might be a little overly quirky (I’m reserving final opinion for when the range hits the shops) but the menswear is spot on, no pun intended. Rei Kawakubo has obviously retained CDG’s spirit in a surprisingly mainstream collection. From what I can see it’s a mix of quality tailoring with some well-placed, original flourishes like bias-cut fabrics and contrasting buttonholes.
Can I put in a request for polka dots to take the crown from stripes? We just need to find a successor to plaid for next spring. Answers on a postcard please.

If you wake up feeling like you need a kickstart to the day then CDG’s Energy C Parfum might be the answer. Hurry up though because the Lime is already out of stock, which means you can only get your hands on the Grapefruit and Lemon scents. They’re £22 each and sound like just the thing to liven up the mornings… I’ll take five!
Everyone is cracking out the summer wear but now the sun has come out I keep seeing one of my pet hates, beachwear as officewear.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for keeping cool but I don’t know why that equates with late ’90s surfbum look. This two-tone Comme Des Garçons polo shirt from Dover Street Market (£70) is sharp and will keep its good looks no matter how hot you get. Team with a pair of lightweight tailored bright trousers in deep blue or if you’re really hot now might be the time to go for short shorts.
