Old England watches were originally launched by Accurist in 1967 and were seen on the wrists of some of the most famous stars of the period, ranging from Twiggy to Princess Anne. They even produced a special watch for The Beatles' Apple boutique. The brand is being relaunched this week with a new concession at Selfridges.
The new unisex watches take their stylistic cue from the originals designed by Richard Loftus. They've produced three lines: 'Be Brave', watches coloured with bright yellows and pinks; 'Classic Roman', monochrome designs featuring Roman numerals, and 'New Union'. Like the watch pictured above, these are Pop-style watches which, as the name might suggest, all use the Union Jack.
As well as the wrist watches pictured, selected designs are also available as pocket watches and pendants.
Prices start at £90.

If the Dior Illustrated exhibition at Somerset House has wetted your appetite for the work of Rene Gruau, you may want to invest in the Dior limited edited Gruau Tailleur Bar palette.

The eyeshadow is also imprinted with a copy of both Gruau's and Dior's signatures alongside 'London' and the date, making the palette a future collector's classic.

Since making her mark in the 1970s, Vivienne Westwood's designs have continued to innovate and inspire. A new display at London's Selfridges - Vivienne Westwood Shoes, An Exhibition 1973 – 2010 – celebrates her contribution to the world of footwear.
The display is situated in the store's Ultralounge and will contain almost 200 pairs of shoes. It'll include the now iconic pirate boot, dating from the 80s and her rocking horse shoes, as well as the platforms in the style that famously caused Naomi Campbell to take a tumble on the catwalk that time. It'll be brought up-to-date with her recent collaboration with Melissa (pictured), shoes that owe more than a passing nod to retro influences.
The exhibition runs from 26 August until 22 September.
