Second skin

Coccinelle's autumn collection features leather embossed crocodile- and python-print bags that look like the real deal. Styles include the leather python fold-over clutch (right; HK$3,299), which comes in black with a metal ball twist fastening. Another standout is the grey crocodile embossed tote that has long handles and comes in two sizes. Also look for shoulder bags, shoppers and a range of business briefcases. The collection is available from Coccinelle, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7712.

Take the plunge

Eco-lovers should have a look at the new Natural Cotton line from lingerie brand Triumph. Made from non-dyed cotton and free of bleaches and other chemicals, the line is ideal for sensitive skin types, says the company. Choose from a range of super-soft bras and briefs, including the plunge bra (HK$290) and shorts (both right; HK$78) set. The collection can be found at Triumph, Queensway Plaza, Admiralty, tel: 2528 1598.

Cool and unusual

Nine West's latest footwear collection is about classic shapes made modern by using unusual materials. Standouts include the black leather ankle boots (right; HK$1,295) with details such as a suede strap and brass buckle. For a more traditional style, go for the brown peep-toe heels (HK$854), which feature a mock-croc embossed design. Other styles include round-toe flats, low heel court shoes and strap sandals. The collection is available at all Nine West stores including that in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2921 2009.
