Prabal Gurung has used digitised floral prints in violet and plum to create a vivid collection for summer. The Nepalese-American also enlisted belt and corset specialist Zana Bayne to design leather harnesses that would complement the range. Our picks are the floral-print handkerchief dress (below right; HK$11,760, harness HK$4,130) and the refined wool-silk trousers (below; HK$10,360). Prabal Gurung is available at Lane Crawford, Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2118 3638.
The 50s show
Calvin Klein Underwear has gone dotty with a new 1950s-inspired line. The black-and-white polka-dot pattern is available in lingerie separates (above HK$420 and below HK$320) but if you're going to revisit the era of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, summon your inner pin-up in a chemise (right; HK$520). Calvin Klein Underwear is at 18 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2526 8113.
Michelle Lai of Mischa often uses vintage Japanese obis and kimonos as inspiration, but this time it's the interlocking hexagonal print of her travel range that has proved a big hit. The pattern is a stylised representation of a tortoise's shell, meant to symbolise longevity. Both the clutch (below; HK$450) and overnight bag (left; HK$1,650) are made from weather-proofed canvas and come with a hand-stitched leather zip. Mischa is available at Indigo, 32A Staunton Street, Central, tel: 2147 3000.
New York-based Rag & Bone has some great summer skirts on offer. See the asymmetrical two-toned skirt (below right; HK$5,000) or get in on the pleated maxi skirt trend with a silk and chiffon version (below; HK$5,500). Rag & Bone is available at Lane Crawford.
