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.
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.
