    Here are some tips to get the best out of your app to enjoy our the extra content.

    • Make sure you have a good 3G or WIFI connection
    • Press the page as flat as possible on the floor (or where you want to see the products)
    • Use the left and right arrows (either sides) or the browse icon (top right) to browse multiple products from each page
    • The app works best if the magazine page is near other objects (walls / tables etc)
    • Scan the whole page that the yellow icon is on
    • Keep your smartphone or tablet directed towards the page until the product pops up, then step back
    • You can touch the screen to resize or move the 3D objects
    • The videos and extra gallery images will hover on top of the scanned magazine page

    Style 360: Orange

    360 orange

    A complete contrast to the Romanticism of the British Spring pastels, the likes of Prabal Gurung and Altuzarra turned up the heat over the pond on the SS14 runways at New York fashion week with bright orange.

    Clockwise from the top we saw DKNY lead their SS14 collection with an neon orange clad Karlie Kloss, inspirations including urban gang culture and street art. To perfect a pumpkin pout this summer, head to Mac cosmetics for a juicy helping of shades such as ‘Loudmouth’ and ‘Frosted bright’  (from £15) and if that’s not hot enough for you, add some roar to your fire with these fabulous Kenzo Brenda tiger slippers in orange (£295) at Selfridges. If you’re looking to brighten up from the inside out, why not invest in Timorous Beasties’ Cerebral marble wallpaper (£200 per roll) for that plaid looking wall, or simply switch to a punchy accessory such as the Alu Wall Clock in neon orange (£65 at the Conran shop) for a more flexible feature.
