Crystal clear

Luxury jewellery house Chaumet has created the Dandy Enamel collection of three watches, each with enamel dials inspired by the work of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Encased in a platinum setting, each timepiece features sapphire crystal glass and a black or blue alligator leather strap. Only 12 pieces of each style have been produced. We like the Jumping Hours automatic version (right; HK$380,000), of which only one is available in Hong Kong, at Chaumet, St George's Building, Central, tel: 2536 9338.

Rock show

Paul Smith revisits the 1970s in his latest collection, Cosmic Rock. Drawing inspiration from the early days of his career, the line echoes a time when rockers, such as Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, helped cultivate a style that combined vintage elements and prints in vivid colours. For a classic rock look, we like the leather jacket (HK$16,000), multicoloured T-shirt (HK$2,190) and trousers with a sparkling knee detail (all left; HK$3,550). For something more elegant, try the deep purple waistcoat (far left; HK$3,450). Paul Smith is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2523 5868.

Less is more

Ted Baker has updated its classic casualwear this season. Cuts are clean and simple, with minimal detailing. We like the two-tone grey polo T-shirt (right; HK$750), with bright red collar and piping on the sleeves, and the fitted button-up shirt (below right; HK$1,100) in red, black, purple and pink check. The classic chocolate brown suede Giani satchel (below; HK$1,950) is another highlight. Ted Baker is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 9609.

Into the mix

Splicing 1990s grunge with a 70s hippie style, street-wear label Insight has created the Road to Run collection for spring-summer. The line features washed-out colours and prints, oversized tees and raw cut denim. We love casual pieces such as the Modern Brother sleeveless waistcoat (above; HK$1,190) and the raw edged shorts in grey wash (left; HK$949) and indigo denim (above left; HK$799). Insight is available at Bauhaus, 2 Yiu Wa Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2891 6811.
