WATCH OUT for the Lookbook from Browns, that stalwart retailer to the young and fashionable. It has pretensions to being an art book, complete with irritating philosophical nuggets, but it is essentially a catalogue featuring such products as flax-filled antique silk kimono eye rests, cashmere hot water bottle covers, raw silk toe socks and the cashmere sweater for your dog shown above (a cool pounds 135-pounds 145). Essential if you know someone who has everything, and they're on your Christmas pressie list.

Browns Lookbook, pounds 2.50 (tel: 0171 514 0035).
