A sleek touch of British chic
Sleek cars and tailored clothes come together this Friday evening in an unusual event intended to showcase traditional British style. Jaguar and Alfred Dunhill are co-hosting a show-cum-exhibition at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on August 27 as part of the Inchcape Greater China Millennium Motor Show.
Alfred Dunhill will be showing its autumn/winter 1999-2000 men's collection, while Jaguar will unveil its newest pre-millennial models.
Also on show will be Alfred Dunhill accessories, including watches, writing instruments and gift ideas.
Italian affair If you are a fan of classic, streamlined clothes, then you will love the autumn/winter 1999-2000 collection from Salvatore Ferragamo. The Florentine-based house is showing the line, including its luxurious bags and practical shoes, at a tea-time catwalk show on September 8 at the chic new Prince's Building restaurant, The Mezz. The brand is undergoing something of a revival at the hands of new fashion director, Nicole Fischelis, formerly of Saks Fifth Avenue. Its profile was also raised after a special shoe was designed recently to commemorate the 70th birthday of the late Audrey Hepburn, a loyal Ferragamo fan.
Funky addition A new accessories store, opening soon in Central, promises the most stylish offerings at unbeatable prices. Retailer Joanne Ooi, responsible for bringing ready-to-wear brands like Daryl K and Katayone Adeli to Hong Kong, opens Style Trek on September 1, on a first-floor space at The Landmark. A funky interior - which will include hot pink and magenta ultrasuede accents - will house feminine bags from the likes of Amy Chan and Ipa-nima, lush feathered accessories from Wild by Schutt and a range of shawls and scarves. Ooi describes the concept as 'style-driven, feminine and whimsical'. Prices will average around $1,000.
