The colour seen
Bright trousers are an easy way to add colour to a summer outfit. Harmont & Blaine's 'x-type reverse trousers' are made from a comfortable cotton gabardine and have a tapered cut. They are designed to let you move freely without losing their shape, so are great for these days of heat and humidity. The bright blue style (left; HK$2,350) is attractive while light orange (HK$2,040) is a great summer colour. You can find them at Harmont & Blaine, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7016.
Bags of protection
Travellers in need of a functional and durable bag should look at ST Dupont's new Defi Day Tripper. Made from kevlar, nylon and fluorocarbon resin, it is stain-, water- and UV-resistant. The bag features a suspended interior pocket in which to keep a laptop separated and protected and a convenient detachable strap. Available at ST Dupont, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2877 4138.
