THE NEXT hot fashion accessory is a bottle of water, writes Marion Hume. So puritanical is fashion now that bottles of Vittel, Evian and Glacier (the latter particularly stylish because the bottle is designed by Philippe Starck) have replaced the statement jewellery, handbags and scarves which the truly fashionable now consider just too, too Eighties.

The Independent readers' exclusive Christmas shopping event at Liberty promises to be both a pleasant and a productive evening for everyone who attends.
Enjoy the freedom of Liberty: Join us for an exclusive evening of entertaining, crowd-free Christmas shopping at Liberty stores
Saturday 13 November 1993
If you like doing your Christmas shopping in the middle of a heaving crowd, do not read on. If you think the best way to find a present for a dear friend is to rush out at lunchtime and squeeze a distress purchase - something, anything - between a sandwich and a taxi ride, turn the page. Because you would not enjoy the Independent readers' exclusive Christmas shopping evening at Liberty.
One of life's black comedies: The protagonists on either side of the abortion debate succeed only in obscuring big, basic issues of existence
Wednesday 31 March 1993
THERE is no middle ground on abortion. It brings out the worst in people. It is the issue on the edge, the debate overlooking the abyss. In America it has become the most potent of all the harsh polarities that divide that society. In politically correct circles, to be pro-life is to be damned and banned. Amid the anti-abortion alliance of Catholics, evangelicals and fundamentalists, to be pro-choice is to be, well, really damned.

AFTER U and I, Vlad i mir. For years Nabokov has prowled through Updike's work like a bear in the yard, occasionally knocking over the garbage cans. The fact that the Russian cited Updike as one of the two living writers he was prepared to admit admiring (Alain Robbe-Grillet being the other) no doubt contributed to the younger man's tolerance of his awesome presence, but there comes a time when a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Now 60, Updike has decided to have it out with the intruder.

HOW SELECTIVE the collective fashion memory is, how limited its inspiration. Despite the fact that Berlin - not to say Germany - has undergone one or two minor upheavals since the Thirties, it is to that over-used and idealised era that the fashionable imagination has turned once more for autumn.
