Christian Audigier continues to bring Los Angeles-inspired casual wear to Hong Kong - but this time, it's a line of shoes. The distinctive blue and white platform shoes (right; HK$1,090) feature his signature tattoo art and have a casual trainer feel. Also great for the summer are the flip-flops (HK$590) with tattooed platforms. The shoes are available at the Christian Audigier flagship store in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2375 4505.

Chic and cheerful

Marc by Marc Jacobs' jewellery collection is sure to please fashionistas on a budget. The Bauble ring (below right; HK$400) is made from tarnished metal and decorated with yellow and green or black stones. More sleek is the silver and gold cuffs (right; HK$250), which would look great paired with a floaty summer dress. Available at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Fashion Walk, Kingston Street, Causeway Bay, tel 2882 6217.

Sartorial safari

Karen Millen (56 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2196 8282) has included some sexy safari-inspired pieces in its summer collection, such as a button-down khaki shirt dress (far right; HK$2,600) with ruffle detail. The brand's forte, however, remains its cocktail dresses, which feature intricate construction and details such as ruffled petals and ribbon corsages. Standouts include the draped dress with origami detailing on one shoulder (HK$2,600), available in black and pale yellow.
