>> Want to befuddle, amuse and pique curiosity from the people that pass you by in the street?  Don yourself a pair of Cooperative Designs S/S 10 legwarmers – I've not yet come up with a better term that doesn't involve unnecessary double-barrelled words.  I know some of you were desperate to get some knitted leg action and hopefully some of your emails to the Cooperative Designs girls yielded some success…

If not though, perhaps you should keep an eye out on their newly launched online store which is selling a small selection of one-off samples and pieces that form a perfect overview of the Cooperative aesthetic, mixing up seasons, sizes and styles.  You never know.. a pair of the legwarmers may end up there.  That said, there's enough to keep you occupied in their other knitted endeavours… oversized t-shirts with cut-outs, connected arm warmers, denim effect knitted playsuits, knitted bikini tops and some of their collaborative accessories work with the likes of Noel Stewart and Corrie Williamson…

>> I'm loving that there's a lot of x activity going on at the moment.  It's a chain of never ending collaborative x's that seemingly won't stop… Sketchbook Studio x Vintage Academe x Supermarket Sarah x Tatty Devine x Mrs Jones x Kylie x Everyone else who wants to give her an x.  

In particular Sketchbook Studio, buoyant from its success at the pop-up space on Newburgh Street has moved into the ground floor of Kingly Court on Carnaby Street and has been organising exhibitions, shoots, meet-ups and a flurry of other things that involve merriment, cupcakes, drinks and good vibes a plenty.  This Sunday sees the unveiling of a collaboration between the wonderful Supermarket Sarah and my newly discovered Vintage Academe which has uprooted some its stock from its leafy Notting Hill residence to create a 70s Sunny Wall at Sketchbook's Live Studio space. Perhaps it will, plead with the sun to come back for another month or so.  Let's all shimmy down on Sunday to do a sun dance as they're holding a 'Grand Finale' event…

When: Sunday 1st August At: Ground Floor of Kingly Court off Carnaby Street, London W1B 5PW, Time: 6pm-9pm
