exotic creatures The most on-trend jumpsuit of the season  short shorts with long sleeves  also happens to me the most versatile. Wear with trainers and cropped denim jacket for day, strappy stilettos and statement earrings for night. The embroidered satin fabrication featuring rainbow cranes taps into the embellished traditional asian trend championed by Gucci too.

Madame Butterfly The domination of the Valentino rockstud accessory continues, but this brand new collection has a softer, more ’70s edge. Neutral enough to wear with almost anything, but kitchy enough to draw attention, this bag is an antidote to the winter greys. Grazie, Signore Piccioli.

Diamonds and Pearl Smart watches might be all the hype, but nothing says classic cool like a beautifully crafted mother of pearl timepiece on your wrist. Stack this with your favourite Cartier Love Bangle, Bulgari Serpenti cuff or Hermes Clic Clac and it becomes as much a piece of modern jewellery as it is an investment watch.

Rapper’s Delight It’s the brand made street cool when Drake donned it for his Hotline Bling film clip, and made high fashion when Virgil Abloh collaborated with it on capsule collection last year. Now Monclur, best known for creating the most stylish puffer jackets in the world, has just opened its first Australian boutique in Melbourne. Perfect timing for fast-approaching winter.

Clutching hearts What do we love most about these bold, brilliant purses? Their bright, feel-good hue and wit? Well, of course. But better still, each piece from Sass & Bide’s ethical collection is sourced and hand-made in Africa, usually from highly skilled single mothers whose lives are changed by the work created. And Poppy Lissiman’s kitchy, cheeky creations, loved by street style stars and celebrities already, are 100 percent vegan. Both are look good, feel good win-wins.

Fancy footwork They might look like joggers, be named after joggers, but these pimped out rides by Marc Jacobs are far to fabulous to be used for such basic activities. Bette suited to dancing and other fanciful activities, we say. Take no prisoners.
