Fantasy world

Thomas Sabo's autumn/winter silver collection is divided into several lines, each one inspired by dream settings, such as fairy tales and childhood fantasies. Standouts include the winged-heart pendant, with purple synthesised zirconia and marcasite (right; HK$3,290), the love pendant with red enamel (HK$1,290) and the black synthesised zirconia earrings (HK$2,990). Thomas Sabo is at IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 3585.

Fine prints

Belgian accessories brand Kipling has teamed up with edgy British fashion label Peter Pilotto on a collection featuring the latter's iconic digital prints. There are two lines to choose from - the Galaxy series, with its sky nebula prints, and the Machine series of rocket booster prints. The 11 bags in the range include shoulder bags (below left in Galaxy; HK$1,290), shoppers, backpacks, cross-body bags (below right in Machine; HK$750), waist bags and wallets. Kipling is at Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2953 6188.

Women of substance

Italian brand Liu Jo has opened a store in Hong Kong. Founded in 1995 by brothers Vannis and Marco Marchi, the company has 10 brands, including the glamorous Liu Jo and street-glam Liu Jeans. This season, Liu Jo's collection accentuates a feminine silhouette with strong shoulders and a slender waist while the Liu Jeans line is all about the confident and sexy woman. We like Liu Jo's bold red dress with crystal details (above left; HK$2,350) and Liu Jeans' navy military wool jacket (above right; HK$3,450). Liu Jo is at IFC Mall, tel: 2869 9039.

X factor

The Armani Exchange autumn watch collection uses a monochromatic palette to create futuristic pieces, which come with a glossy plastic AX-caged case. The watches have a sense of urban cool, with the label's 'A' leaning on a large 'X' on the face. Available in black and white, the watches (right; HK$1,110) have a textured dial and silver indices. The timepieces are available at Time + Style in Seibu, Langham Place, Mong Kok, tel: 2269 1888.
