Puma's chic yet functional Urban Mobility collection is ideal for city dwellers. For spring, the line debuts footwear and clothing for men and women. The shoes are literally cool: the Madison Evo Velcro (right; HK$699) features a bamboo lining for temperature control. The women's collection includes essential wear such as khaki cotton pants (top right; HK$490), with wide legs and oversized front pockets, and a hooded striped top with a crisscross V-neck plunge (top centre; HK$399). The Reality bag (top; HK$12,000), of which there are 1,000 worldwide, was created with assistance from artist John Armleder and the Serpentine Gallery, in Britain. It features a unique base made from silver chrome, a metallic leather upper and Armleder's signature brain motif on the front. Inside you'll find a pendant, special notepad featuring works from more than 100 artists and a stencil. Available at Puma, Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 2882.
