1 Stepping away from his signature flash 'n' dazzle aesthetic, Roberto Cavalli has taken a decidedly solemn turn this season, offering footwear such as gothic lace-up, peep-toe booties in lush black satin (HK$9,995). Available from The Swank, Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2868 2017.

2 Known for the fine quality of its leather, Spanish fashion house Loewe has launched a collection of vintage-inspired totes called the 'Candy'. The bags are crafted from materials such as nubuck, patent leather and calfskin. Look for standouts such as the canary yellow number (HK$6,500) that can be slung easily across the body. Available from Loewe, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2521 0680.

3 Diamonds may be a girl's best friend but coloured gems are just as much fun. This pair of drop earrings, a new addition to Bulgari's Elisia collection, combines sapphires, emeralds and diamonds to stunning effect. Price available upon request from Bulgari, Chater House, Central, tel: 2523 8057.

4 The ever-desirable Hermes silk scarf has been reincarnated this season with maharajah-inspired prints, an example being the rich red, orange and purple Aux Portes du Palais (HK$3,050). Available from all Hermes locations, including that in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2522 6229.

5 Louis Vuitton has launched the next generation of its classic monogrammed wallets, named the Insolite collection.

Available from all Louis Vuitton locations, including that in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2736 6100.
