Fashion: Fresh looks for the year ahead

A week into the New Year, which is time enough for those well-intentioned resolutions to save, not spend, to fall by the wayside. To coincide with the launch of London Collections: Men, the British menswear showcase beginning in the capital tomorrow, a pop-up boutique will feature the work of dazzling young things such as Martine Rose, Astrid Andersen and Matthew Miller. 35 Neal Street, London WC2, until 16 January

Face to watch: Tom Sellers

The 25-year-old chef has worked with Rene Redzepi and Thomas Keller and critical lips are already being licked in anticipation of the opening of his first restaurant, Story, near Tower Bridge in February. 201 Tooley Street, London SE1

1.  Animals with a title in their name... I'm not suuuuure.

2. Do your dogs gather hungrily by the dishwasher as you stack it, ready to lick everything edible off the dirty plates?

3. I hate it when they order a beer in a tv show and then don't drink it.

4. Just been to the Apple Store and in essence – I've just spent £45 on two lengths of wire
