Agenda: Caracalla 1947 bag; Rebel Wilson; Barlowered; gifts for the 12 days of Christmas

 

Fashion: Depeche Mode

Motorsport fans looking for  a style formula (one) should drive themselves to the internet forthwith  and root out  leather-goods label Caracalla 1947.

Taking its name from  the Rome circuit where Ferrari won  its first race, the label pays homage to racing history with goods inspired  by the team colours and sleek style of the cars from Formula 1 and beyond.   We are particularly revved up by their Monza Weekend holdall, available  in a range of  colours, such as the Mercedes Benz-inspired silver version below.  £420, caracalla1947.com

Rebel Wilson

The young aussie was a scene-stealer  as Kristen Wiig’s dysfunctional housemate in  Bridesmaids and is now set to confirm her place among  Hollywood’s top funnywomen with her lead role in this month’s choral comedy Pitch Perfect..

Barlowered, v.

When a celebrity with  a tendency towards the  cruise-ship crooner  blindly supports  a contestant with  a tendency towards the cruise-ship crooner, thereby diminishing a talent show’s standards.

TV

HOUSE OF CARDS

The US rarely hits the jackpot when remaking UK TV shows, but David Fincher’s translation of the BBC political thriller, with Kevin Spacey in the lead,  could be a rare ace. It premieres on Netflix in February. bit.ly/SsGmX1
