THE GUARDIAN: Sew a patchwork quilt with Next in Fashion’s Daniel Fletcher. Creative director and star of Netflix’s Next in Fashion, Daniel W Fletcher has plenty to get on with while in social isolation, designing a collection for Fiorucci as well as one for his own brand.

The design – inspired by concerns over the melting polar ice caps – is an arctic landscape.
