The spring/summer Ports collection goes south this season with a silhouette inspired by the sensual Argentinian tango. The collection fuses natural materials such as waxed rope, raffia and straw with fabrics such as silk, smooth satin and washed leather to create contrasting textures and detail. Dolman sleeves, neo-Basque jackets, slim-cut trousers, breezy dresses and cinched-waist coats make an appearance in colours such as white, burnished gold, beige and pale grey, contrasted with rich shades such as sienna orange, crimson and jet black. The collection is in stores now. Ports is at 1 Hysan Avenue, Causeway Bay, tel: 2504 1961.
