Glimmers of Hope
Links of London has introduced semi-precious stones to its popular Hope collection. The silver ring with black onyx (around; HK$2,850) and green aventurine (above; also HK$2,850) is simple and elegant. If you are thinking about Christmas gifts, there's also the Hope pendant in 18-carat gold (HK$22,500). Links of London is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 3328.
The X factor
Using an innovative fabric called X-Fit (a four-way stretch denim that never loses its shape), DL1961 Premium Denim was launched in 2007. We like the faux-leather look of the elongating Britney slim waxed black denims (right; HK$1,700) and, for a more casual look, the Emma jean-leggings in dark indigo (far right; HK$1,500), with ankle zip. DL1961 is available at Indigo, 32A Staunton Street, Central, tel: 2147 3000.
We are in love with Yves Saint Laurent's range of accessories this season. The crisp lines, sophisticated prints and gorgeous materials make the label a one-stop shop for Christmas presents. We are wishing for the red poppy-print scarf in silk chiffon (top left; HK$4,240) and the festive-edition Tribute 105mm gold and silver leather sandal (bottom left; HK$7,920). And since we have a weakness for the envelope clutches; our favourites are the monochrome leather version (bottom right; HK$6,480) and the soft clutch in leopard print (top right; HK$6,900). Yves Saint Laurent is in Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2526 1839.
