Wait! Be­fore you go, make sure you’re up to speed on rub­ber face­masks, silk py­ja­mas and Manolo Blah­nik’s film

THIS MONTH’S TRUE ES­SEN­TIAL is less ‘must have’, more ‘game changer’ – and you can see what this game changer looks like on our cover star, Rihanna. It’s look 24 from Raf Si­mons’ in­au­gu­ral Calvin Klein col­lec­tion — as in, the slick, plas­tic­cov­ered gold coat that makes your life feel like you’re per­ma­nently bathed in sun­shine, even when it’s pour­ing with rain. You are im­per­vi­ous to pre­cip­i­ta­tion in this coat, im­mune to all bad weather. You are win­ning at fash­ion (even if you are fail­ing at bills, work, adult re­la­tion­ships and life). Sero­tonin as outerwear – who wouldn’t want that?

SPEAK­ING OF LIFE-CHANG­ING EX­PE­RI­ENCES, if you haven’t tried rub­ber face masks yet, have you even lived? The lat­est so­cial me­dia hit from the Korean beauty world might trans­form you into a Han­ni­bal Lecter looka­like for a few min­utes, but will leave you with a no­tice­able glow dur­ing the next 24 hours (Dr. Jart+ Rub­ber Lover Masks, £10 each).

WHEN BET­TER TO STAGE your face-mask selfie than dur­ing a night in, stink­ing of hang­over from your es­presso mar­tini-fu­elled night out out? What to wear while you do: a pair of Love Sto­ries py­ja­mas (avail­able at Net-a-Porter), or a hoodie and lurex briefs by Les Girls Les Boys (avail­able at Sel­fridges). Swap Net­flix for an old­school board game and set­tle in for a night of whole­some de­bauch­ery.

SHOULD YOU NEED SLIGHTLY MORE high­brow en­ter­tain­ment, watch Manolo Blah­nik’s first fea­ture-length film, The Boy

Who Made Shoes For Lizards (out 22 Septem­ber). The film doc­u­ments the footwear icon’s life, work, and the im­pact of his vi­sion­ary de­signs. And if it’s lit­er­ary en­light­en­ment you seek, Dries Van Noten cel­e­brates his 100th col­lec­tion in two beau­ti­fully bound books of never-be­fore-seen im­agery. See, hang­overs can be pro­duc­tive.
