Rich pickings

Alessandra Rich is a British brand not long familiar to Hong Kong, but we picked up on the uber-chic stylings of this feminine label long before Samantha Cameron, the wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron, started wearing them to diplomatic gatherings. We adore the short black lace caped dress (above left; HK$23,000) for its quirkiness. For European cool with a touch of Victoriana, there is the long white lace belted dress with contrast opaque puff sleeves (above right; HK$47,000). Alessandra Rich is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.

Ethnic flavours

With plenty of ethnic influences this spring at Steve Madden, we would pick the cognac leather-coloured sandal for a boho vibe (above; HK$950). The intricate beading and woven material of the flat sandal (left; HK$750) channels the cute hippy chic. Steve Madden is in Central Building, 1 Pedder Street, Central, tel: 2140 6318.

Cuff love

Boutique jewellery label Eddera has quirky simplicity down pat. The Arrow cuff (below; HK$2,200) is a great little piece, and the Leaves cuff (right; HK$2,200) is just as gorgeous. Eddera is available at Rue Madame, Lee Gardens Two, Causeway Bay, tel: 2972 2021.

Once bitten

Show me a girl that doesn't lust after an Alexander McQueen clutch and I'll show you a big fat liar. This season we have Sarah Burton's more feminine stamp on the range, in a stunning soft colour palette. We love the peachy snakeskin version of a classic box clutch, with the label's signature skull clasp (below; HK$20,900). The structure of the folded zipper print clutch (bottom; HK$4,300) is a feast for the hands and eyes. Alexander McQueen is available at On Pedder, New World Tower, Central, tel: 2118 3489.
