The fash pack may be off on their summer holidays but there's still been plenty of style news to keep our world spinning. For starters, Victoria Beckham introduced us to the new VVB girl, Rihanna triumphed over Topshop and Jennifer Aniston confessed she likes to wear, err, T-shirts that look like dresses when it comes to red carpet style. Here's some more of the week's style snippets to feed your appetite...

See the designs covered in colourful symbols and girlie shapes, all topped off with a glittering laminated finish and fading lenses. So pay your ode to the ultimate symbol of Japanese culture by picking up a pair now available from www.retrosuperfuture.com.
2. Michael Kors Pays Tribute To Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton is following in the footsteps of Calvin Klein and Carolina Herrera by being honoured by Michael Kors. The luxury brand will present Hillary with the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Serviceaward in October. 'She is a dedicated and enormously effective humanitarian whose commitment to community service encompasses the whole planet,' says the designer. 'Thanks to her talent, devotion and unrelenting efforts on behalf of those with much less, she has improved millions of lives and helped lay the foundation for a better, more just world.' Hear, hear!
3. Jonathan Saunders And Roksanda Ilincic Pop Up
London-based designers Jonathan Saunders and Roksanda Ilincic have combined their sartorial force to open up a pop up outlet store on Hackney's super-cool Morning Lane. The store offers discounts of 50-70% from both designer lines but it's for a limited time only so we recommend you get there fast - and bring cash. The shop runs from Wednesday 31st of July - Sunday 4th August and opening hours are 12pm - 7pm, Sunday 12pm - 4pm.
4. Cate Underwood Adds Hoss Intropia To Her CV
Cate Underwood is following in the footsteps of Helena Christensen and Naomie Harris as the new ‘Intropia Woman’, but not only is she striking a pose for the Autumn Winter 2013 campaign, she styled the collection too. Yep, this is certainly a lady of many talents - the Ukrainian is a photographer, model, blogger, DJ AND mother. Phewf! Cate’s award winning photography has seen her work with luxury fashion titles in front of, and behind the camera, as well as emerging talent, making her the perfect candidate for the Intropia family.

Located at 12 Floral Street, the brand have set up in a Grade II listed building originally built in 1838, within which you've find an array of sport-style delights that continue to meld the avant-garde genius of Yohji Yamamoto with the breakthrough innovation of adidas.
