When I meet the singer Roisin Murphy at a café after the House of Holland show at London Fashion Week, it's hard not to feel as comparatively uncool and drably dressed as a policeman at the Notting Hill carnival. She is wearing a pink and grey shard-patterned sweatshirt by Vivienne Westwood, and huge vintage Courrèges sunglasses, although this is actually quite a subtle look by her striking standards.

At first glance, Samuel Leibowitz seems like a strange choice to begin a series about the lives of modern British Jews. It's not as if his experience is typical. He's Hasidic (big black hats, big black coats, Volvo estates to carry all the children), which places him in a small minority, but he's also a convicted drug-smuggler, which makes him a minority within the minority – a minority of one, in fact. Jonathan Goldberg, his lawyer, said that, in all the dozens of drugs cases he'd been involved in, he'd never had an orthodox Jewish client before. Then again, if you're wanting to talk about the tension between tradition and modernity, about the strains of living in a community based on rigid adherence to rules – well, who better could you ask for?

Christmas morning is the one time of the year you would expect the nation's golf courses to be deserted and so they would be if it wasn't for thousands of hackers trying out their Christmas presents.

Just when it appeared that fashion had given up on the concept of ladylike dress - something of a retrograde step some might reasonably argue - Marc Jacobs sends out the most well-manicured procession of looks in recent history. The man who famously gave the world designer grunge way back when - not to mention an army of cute Downtown New Yorkers in identikit Peter Pan collars - has decreed that this autumn our aesthetic will be long, lean and entirely sophisticated. We will embrace the sort of no-nonsense colour worn so well by French women- think tomato red, ivory, navy - but which in the wrong hands whispers of one too many trips to the John Lewis womenswear department. Wide-brimmed hats and, most of all, soft leather gloves will finish our immaculately polished physical appearance.
