Changing times

Noon Copenhagen has created a series of timepieces that use a 'unique rotating disc system'. Within each piece, two semi-circular discs - one semi-transparent - rotate, constantly altering the look of the watch; by changing the areas of the face over which each of four colours is shown. Colour combinations include: two shades of orange, black and grey; and red, pink, black and grey. The watches (HK$399 to HK$1,899) are sold at Genesis, Central MTR station, tel: 2522 0998.

Jet setters

Known for vintage obi bags, Mischa Designs is heading in a new direction, its latest style being the signature print Jet Set tote (HK$980). Designed for travellers, the roomy bag is made from coated cotton canvas and features a Japanese-inspired hexagon print. It's available in four colours: eggshell (above), periwinkle, khaki and orange, and can be monogrammed with the owner's initials (HK$150). The tote is available at Indigo, 32A Staunton Street, Central, tel: 2147 3000.

Kanch launch

Local designer Kanchan Panjabi has added ready-to-wear to her Kanchan Couture label. The new line, Kanch by KC, is an easy-to-wear collection of summer dresses, skirts, shirts and tees made from materials sourced in India featuring bold prints and colours. Standouts include the one-shoulder ikat-print dress (above; HK$800). Prices range from HK$200 to HK$1,500. The line is available at Kanchan Couture, 4/F, 108 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2117 1782.

Cool crystals

For its Under the Blue jewellery collection, Swarovski has looked to icy Nordic landscapes for inspiration. Creative director Nathalie Colin has used crystal beading techniques on items such as the Maniac bracelet (HK$3,100). More fashion forward is the Montecristo bib necklace (above; HK$3,900), made from sculpted crystal mesh with lace-style beading in black, grey and 'greige' crystals. Swarovski is at 1 Pedder Street, Central, tel: 2530 9133.
