Diesel Black Gold is bringing sexy back to the catwalk. The brand's tough yet glamorous styles have been a hit with daring rock chicks who want a bit of extra oomph from their outfits. For a feisty look in a soft, warm palette, there's the buttery leather jacket (HK$19,000), pale jersey top (HK$1,400), shorts (HK$3,400) and leather scarf (all above left; HK$2,200). We also like this brown leather and print long dress (above right; HK$23,000) for a rock'n'roll-meets-boho evening look, but our favourite is the gorgeous one-shoulder chiffon print dress (above centre; HK$4,200). Diesel Black Gold is available at Diesel, 20 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2525 0540.
With a choice of styles ranging from low-key canvas to glamorous, bejewelled creations, a ballet flat by French label Repetto should be a staple of any woman's wardrobe. The grey jersey version (left; HK$1,900) is perfect for relaxing in while the butter-yellow canvas flat with leather tip (far left; HK$2,300) is a great everyday summer shoe. Repetto is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.
Jewels of the sea
We are huge fans of the chic, bold and unexpected approach seen in Yves Saint Laurent accessories collection this season. We like the large gold bangle with a slice of marine agate (above; HK$6,790) and the tribal-looking necklace with marine agate discs (left; HK$6,790). Yves Saint Laurent is at Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2868 0092.
Salvatore Ferragamo's textured gold Galdina evening clutch with gold Swarovski crystals (above; HK$22,900) is to die for. Its clean, simple shape, size, colour and tiny clasp make it the perfect accessory for a night out. Pair it with a black cocktail dress for the full glamour- kitten look. Salvatore Ferragamo is at IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7388.
