The lean, upright and spiky sculpture of Trevor Bates belonged to the so-called "geometry of fear" school of post-war British sculpture. Although he is less well-known than Reg Butler, the winner of the landmark competition "The Unknown Political Prisoner" (1953), or Bernard Meadows, Kenneth Armitage and Lynn Chadwick, Bates created distinctive figurative forms that shared the existential mood, angst and disquiet of their work.

What to buy the woman who has everything? A limited-edition doll courtesy of the Lanvin designer and all-round fashion darling, Alber Elbaz, might make her very happy indeed. For autumn, the small but perfectly formed house that is currently giving the big brands a run for their money has collaborated with the Taiwanese craftsman Franz, and is offering up small but perfectly formed hand-painted porcelain figurines wearing signature looks from the current collection and tiny stilettos. True to the current vogue for all things collectable, each doll is limited to a series of 800 and costs 250. A bargain, one might not unreasonably argue, given that a full-size Lanvin frock might cost 10 times that, and then there are the dry-cleaning bills to consider.
