1 Diesel's (20 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2525 0540) spring collection features jeans (HK$1,450 and up) that give Balmain a run for its money. Washes for women include the beaten-up Bastoni and the bleached, vintage Lhela wash (pictured). Also look for loose chambray shirts, belted dresses, slit skirts and short jumpsuits.

2 You can't beat good old-fashioned Havaianas for the summer but if you want to inject some bling into your summer wardrobe, the brand has created two styles with Swarovski crystals exclusively for Lane Crawford (IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 3388). The slim, crystal-mesh flip flop (HK$1,090) features gold crystals on the straps and comes in gold or grey. The rock chick studded style (pictured; HK$490) comes in black, white and grey.

3 H&M's summer collection includes cover ups for the beach, summer dresses, swimwear and accessories. We're loving the chrysanthemum print dress (pictured; HK$299), which is perfect with leggings or thrown over a bikini. The pink ruffled top with asymmetric hem (pictured; HK$199) is great for evenings. The collection is available at all H&M stores including that at 68 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2110 9546.
