Joseph Joseph Index Mini Compact Chopping Boards
There goes your excuse for a cluttered kitchen. Joseph Joseph’s smart set of compact chopping boards are great for a bit of space saving and each is colour coded to a different food stuff, so you don’t douse your veg in chicken goo. Because gastro-intestinal distress is never trending.

Esprit Blanket Scarf
Don’t let Lenny Kravitz’s picnic blanket put you off an oversized wrap-up. This Aztec-inspired scarf by Esprit affords a fair few winds around your neck to help keep out any weather. Just dial down what’s around it.
We’re OK with you nicking Kravitz’s all-black rocker thing.
Available at ASOS, priced £29.
Neil Barrett Dégradé Brushed Cotton Parka
One of this season’s trending pieces gets a new paint job, courtesy of Neil Barrett. And to make it easier to justify, the premium cotton and wool-twill parka also comes with a zip-out jersey hoodie, so you can wear each piece solo.
That means you’re getting two pieces for the price of one. High-end BOGOF.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £1,650.
Nike Air Huarache Utility Premium Trainers
The year’s most ubiquitous trainer silhouette gets an autumnal makeover, with splashes of orange and camouflage adding an urban edge.
And ‘Utility’ isn’t just a name; magwire lacing keeps your feet secure, a beefed-up mudguard keeps puddles at bay and reflective 3M detailing helps motorists spot you in the dark. Come at me, winter.
Available at END Clothing, priced £105.
adidas x Yeezy Season 1 Leather Backpack
Kanye’s first full adidas collection finally hits stores and has notably failed to repeat his footwear’s overnight sell-out trick. While we’d advise thinking twice before dropping four figures on a fur-lined bomber (democratising fashion, eh, Mr West?) this suede backpack’s minimalist styling should even tempt the haters.
Handy for stowing a thermos and sandwiches when you’re camping out for the next Yeezy 350 drop.
Available at END Clothing, priced £485.
Mango Suede Biker Jacket
Shiny leather biker jackets can make you look like try-hard unless you’re actually straddling an engine.
The smart move? Steer suede. The texture makes things more formal, so you can wear it to work with wool trousers and a knitted tie, or pair with ripped black jeans and black tee should you fancy swapping the spreadsheets for a microphone. Be that with your band, or on an office karaoke outing.
Available at Mango, priced £169.99.
Elton John AIDS Foundation & Tateossian PILL XXV Diamond Bracelet

To mark 25 years working together, Tateossian has crafted this black and white diamond bracelet as part of the exclusive PILL XXV collection, with 30 per cent of the price going to help eradicate HIV. Wear with pride.
Available at Tateossian, priced £1,500.
