We have a soft spot for quirky, simple accessories, so the Cuisine Francaise label was a great find. The leather bow metal cuffs (below; in pink and red leather, HK$890 each) are cute and contemporary, while the grey leather weave necklace (left; HK$1,290) scores marks for originality. Cuisine Francaise is available at Rue Madame, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7880.
French designer Sonia Rykiel's latest collection recalls a hint of 1970s retro. We love the patterned knit top (HK$7,095), wide-leg trousers (HK$10,695) and handbag (all above right; HK$8,495) for a casual day outfit. The summery print dress with strong black lines on the bodice (above left; HK$43,195) makes for a glamorous, carefree evening ensemble. Sonia Rykiel is available at The Swank, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2845 4961.
For cool and casual Italian elegance look no further than family-owned label Fratelli Rossetti. We like the tasselled loafer in white and blue or white and cream (right and above right; HK$4,680 a pair) and the snakeskin handbag (above; HK$8,800) adds a touch of the exotic. Fratelli Rossetti is in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2175 5296.
Marni's brilliant range of bags makes this label a perfect stop for spring-summer accessorises. We like the geometric pattern on the sequinned evening clutch (left; HK$12,500) and the minimalism of the brown and neon yellow leather satchel (above; HK$7,700). Marni is available at Lane Crawford, IFC Mall, tel: 2118 2288.
