Rubber-lovers, wannabe fetishists and tourists alike are clamouring to lay hands on the spikey, sci-fi rubber bags sold by Obsession in Covent Garden. The few people who stayed up late enough to watch LWT's Dial Midnight will know the same spikey rubber was used to make the studio sofa. Ouch.

The wicked and wonderful backpacks retail at an affordable pounds 48.00 and can be found at Obsessions, Seven Dials, 30 Monmouth St, Covent Garden, WC2. (071 379 1740) Mon-Wed: 10.30am-6.30pm. Wed-Sat: 11.00am-7.00pm.
