This month’s cul­tural ups and downs

BLING­ING KNITWEAR

This be­daz­zled McQueen beauty can be yours for [in­sert an­nual wages], or make a dupe with a char­ity-shop knit and vin­tage brooches.

JOUR­NEY’S END

Not for the faint-hearted, this cin­e­matic redo of the fa­mous WW1 play in­cludes Hol­ly­wood heavy­weights Sam Claflin and Paul Bet­tany. Warn­ing: ex­is­ten­tial cri­sis un­avoid­able.*

LAZY-GIRL EYES

Adieu to hours of mir­ror angst try­ing to make your eye­liner flicks match. “Thumbprint” liner is an eas­ier on-trend op­tion, here to free up your morn­ings.

BOXSET DAT­ING

App Net fling pairs you with dates ac­cord­ing to your Net­flix pref­er­ences. Fi­nally, a short­cut to finding some­one who’s as into For The Love Of Spock as you are.

CHAR­ITY TO THE MAXX

Do­nate your wardrobe cast-offs to TK Maxx’s Give Up Clothes For Good cam­paign and raise money to help beat child can­cers. Michelle Dock­ery is also on board.**

POT­TER MA­NIA

Re­mem­ber when Poké­mon Go got so out of hand that an on­line death tracker ap­peared? Well, get ready: a Harry Pot­ter fol­low-up is set to hit phones (and hos­pi­tals) later this year.

MINTY FINGERS

Great for breath-fresh­en­ing, but not for use within 50ft of another hu­man. These Melo iKo dis­pos­able tooth­brushes (£5.99) squeak like a ham­ster on speed.

FUGLY SHOES

OK, we get it, ugly train­ers are cool again, it’s fash­ion. But these £595 Ba­len­ci­aga plat­form-trainer crea­tures are one step too far.

PUSSY WATCH

The Ana­log Watch Com­pany makes watches out of your pet’s hair. Just send them 4oz of fur and around £150. High price to pay for a hairier wrist.

GEN­I­TAL HOME­WARE

Yes, we’re into in­te­ri­ors but does any­body re­ally want vulva slip­pers, butt lamps or a pe­nis vase? And if you do, what will you say when your mum pops round with a bunch of daffs?
