First choice

Roger Vivier is paying tribute to French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy with a chic new bag. The vintage-inspired Miss Viv bag features a solid rectangular frame with a simple ring buckle clasp. It comes in a giraffe print on pony hair accented with croc-printed calf leather (below) as well as in washed leather and black patent. The bags are available in small (HK$16,700) or large (HK$21,100) sizes at Roger Vivier, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2810 8690.

Zipping point

The signature detail on Fendi's Unzipped collection of handbags is, surprise surprise, the zip. Choose from two styles and sizes: the hobo and the double straps, which are available in four colours and a snakeskin pattern (pictured on a small hobo bag; HK$27,800). Made from Syrian lambskin, the bags are available at Fendi, The Landmark. tel: 2524 1339.

Off the cuff

American jeweller David Yurman has launched a collection of bold cuffs. There are three designs, all in 18-carat yellow gold or sterling silver, including the Pilgrim and Classic, which features a new take on the buckle design. More unusual is the braided Sculpted Cable (left; HK$81,600 for the gold and HK$6,500 for the silver). The cuffs are available at David Yurman, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 0005.

Party line

Los Angeles shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau has taken inspiration for his spring collection from the disco era and architectural and anatomical silhouettes. Standouts include the Kessell (HK$6,900), a black-glitter bootie, and the Matador sandal (left; HK$6,100), both featuring a sexy U-shaped cutout at the ankle. The shoes are available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, tel: 3695 3388.
