Skip into summer

When sweltering summer temperatures start to soar, our go-to sneakers are often kicked off in favour of footwear more suited to the rising heat. But no longer will our our loyal sneakers be relegated to the depths of wardrobe for another season. Enter the Converse Chuck II Spacer Mesh: the latest clever take on the Chuck II. Spacer Mesh features all the Chuck II technology we love  – uber-comfy Nike Lunarlon cushioning, super soft micro-suede lining and a padded non-slip tongue – but has been created using a breathable, two-tone mesh making them warm-weather friendly. Summer escapades have never been so stylish. View more of the new Chuck ll Spacer Mesh at

Watch Lily-Rose Depp in the new Chanel N°5 L’EAU film

Karl Lagerfeld’s next-generation muse, Lily-Rose Depp – the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis – steps in front of the camera for Chanel’s N°5 L’EAU short film. Directed by Johan Renck – who has directed music videos for the likes of Madonna, Lana Del Rey and Robbie Williams – the short film captures the exuberance and eclectic nature of both Depp and the fragrance. “When I was young,” recalls Renck, “fragrance ads were the most daring. I wanted to recapture that here. Now more than ever, flaunting your ‘difference’ is the only way to make an impact. It was the central idea throughout the film. I had my heart even more set on it since I have been known to wear N°5 myself on occasion. To me, this fragrance is very mysterious, sensual and incredibly powerful.”
