From the hectic diaries of the design elite to the jet-setting schedules of the fashion crowd, everyone's making time for this major exhibition. Firstly, the German expressionist movement continues to be a major style influencer, with colourblocking, exposed steel and angular shapes a recurring and indelible trend. Secondly, it is the biggest displayed collection of Bauhaus art, architecture, design, sculpture and film of its kind on show in the UK for over 40 years. Thirdly, the Barbican exhibition shop. We know its shallow and materialistic, but it's always filled with such inspired finds and our sneak peek into their collection for this show doesn't disappoint.
