Sombre days

If you're not into the bright colours or stark whites presented by many designers this season, head to Emporio Armani for some sombre relief. The black thick mesh jacket (HK$6,900), black shirt with contrasting sheer and opaque panels (HK$2,500) and tight black leather trousers (all right; HK$8,500) is one of the key looks of the collection. In a concession to the warmer months, some of the jackets are sleeveless and made from lightweight fabrics. We like the light grey long jacket (HK$7,700) with matching trousers (both far right; HK$2,700). Emporio Armani is in Chater House, Central, tel: 2532 7711.

Skin colours

Bright leather has added some extra colour to Zegna Sport's accessories line this season. Ultra-soft calfskin is used in simple belts and classic urban trainers. We like the blue shoes (above; HK$3,550) and red belt (above right; HK$2,000). The Zegna Sport collection is available at Ermenegildo Zegna, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 0828.

Take it easy

For effortless dressing this summer, check out the latest simple, chic and easy-to-wear garments from Bally. The light grey jacket (HK$8,990) and tapered trousers (both right; HK$3,990) make for a perfect casual summer suit. We also like the classic combination of black jacket (HK$5,190), striped navy and white tee (HK$1,490) and blue trousers (all far right; HK$2,790). Bally is in IFC Mall, tel: 3586 2899.

Prints in the sand

Ethnic-inspired prints are everywhere this summer and we love Missoni's subtle take on the trend. The large canvas and leather carry-all (above; HK$3,890) features a blown-out print in desert tones. Missoni is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.
