Make the cut

Dolce & Gabbana has some stunning bodysuits out this season. We like the cut-out black bodysuit (far right; HK$13,300), with cute floral buttons. But for the wow factor, take a gander at the full showgirl look gracing magazine covers - this black see-through structured bustier with gemstones is priced at an eye-watering HK$245,000. The little black shorts (both right) underneath are HK$4,200. Dolce & Gabbana is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2877 5558.

Ocean world

We are in love with Chanel's spring-summer accessories range. Karl Lagerfeld's oceanic theme has given us some of the most ingenious and luminescent pieces of the season. Pearly surfaces adorn items such as the iridescent leather clutch (below; HK$35,200) to great geometric effect. Coral and jellyfish were the inspiration behind the stunning multicoloured silicone bag with interlaced chains (right; HK$42,100). Then there are the gorgeous shoes, including the T-bar sandal with grooved heel (below right; HK$8,400). Chanel is in Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2810 0978.

Rock chic

Boucheron's Quatre 'Black Edition' collection has a chunky, slightly rock look to it. That's not to say the pieces aren't precious: the small ring in white and black gold with diamonds (left; HK$51,800) is a subtle take on the range, whereas the large ring in white and black gold (above left; HK$37,000) makes for a strong masculine statement piece. Boucheron is in the Mandarin Oriental, 5 Connaught Road, Central, tel: 2147 9908.

Bold and beautiful

We have been watching local brand Kanchan Couture for some time now and we're always delighted by its use of bright hues and great fabrics. The tartan wool-twill blazer (HK$3,500) and the electric blue pencil skirt (both far left; HK$2,000) would make a stand-out ensemble. Another interesting look is the bright, slim-cut fuchsia dress (left; HK$5,000). Kanchan Couture is available online at buy.kanchancouture.com and by appointment at its studio (7/F, Tower A, Hung Hom Commercial Centre, 37 Ma Tau Wai Road, Hung Hom, tel: 2117 1782).
