Local label Kotur is going places. It was recently featured in W magazine and Vogue, and it just launched a collection for spring/summer. Using the theme of nature as inspiration, materials such as vegetable-dyed leather, hemp and straw are used on sleek, modern shapes. Highlights include the X'ian clutch decorated with matt gold sequins (above; HK$2,900 to HK$3,100), which is a design based on armour worn by Qing-dynasty warriors. The Vacchetta leather Wallace handbag is modelled after the classic frame handbags found in Parisian vintage markets (small, HK$6,000; large, HK$6,300). Kotur is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.
