Ripe for the picking
Mango's (IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 3262) spring collection includes tailored jackets, rock 'n' roll T-shirts and flirty dresses. If you want to cover up, try the printed black and white trench coat with three-quarter-length sleeves (left; HK$2,749), which will go well over a cocktail dress or jeans. We also like the long retro-print T-shirts (HK$355), especially the grey one, which would look good under a leather jacket.
Pack it in
Eastpak's latest line of backpacks is a collaboration with London-based design house Eley Kishimoto. The collection contains nine styles in five colours and all feature the brand's signature flash print design. Each bag is individually numbered and signed and comes with an enamel pin. Grab the white and gold Getter (HK$1,550) bag, which is both stylish and practical. The backpacks are available at Fashion Walk, 57 Paterson Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2808 0501.
Looking for accessories to spice up your wardrobe? Club Monaco's snakeskin belts (above; HK$830) come in a range of colours and contrast with the usual black or patent leather waist-cinching styles. Another item that has caught our eye is the cropped, washed, black-leather biker jacket with asymmetrical zip (right; HK$4,300). The items are available at all Club Monaco stores, including that at 16 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2118 2989.
Lanes (70 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2530 5333) is a new boutique that stocks accessories, shawls, wraps and jewellery that have a vintage feel. The shop's best-sellers include the hand-beaded lace bolero (HK$3,950) by designer Hidy Ng, which would look perfect over a little black dress. Also fun are the clutches (right; HK$1,250 each), which come in a range of pop colours.
