Folk art

Looking back to the collegiate styles of the 1960s and 70s, Kookai's latest accessories collection combines a casual style with a folksy spirit. We love the light scarves in cotton, wool and silk, which are easy to incorporate into a winter wardrobe. Use the leopard print with red border scarf (above; HK$880) to add a splash of colour over a neutral jacket or go graphic with a black paint-effect version (top; also HK$880). Kookai is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2921 2082.

Tongue in chic

Inspired by the French bourgeoisie, Jean Paul Gaultier's latest collection mixes lavish materials with the designer's unique sense of humour. The brand's handbag line offers a welcome touch of over-the-top Gaultier glamour. We love the tan crocodile skin clutch with metal clasp (left; HK$9,980) and the bright red tartan clutch with buckle detail (above left; also HK$9,980). Jean Paul Gaultier is at Lee Gardens, Causeway Bay, tel: 2915 6189.

Go retro

Now that it's jeans weather again, we're tempted by 7 For All Mankind's Vintage Heritage line, which uses sanding and other processes to produce a fashionable lived-in look. Check out the retro flares in classic dark blue (left; HK$2,380) and the comfy-looking straight-leg blue jeans (above; also HK$2,380). 7 For All Mankind is in Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2722 9667.

Rimon empire

Gat Rimon's gorgeous trouser suits and jackets are just the thing for smart-casual chic. We love the autumnal shades of the bright yellow blouse (HK$990), dark mustard blazer (HK$2,790) and beige trousers (all left; HK$1,490). The button-down top (HK$1,190) worn with a rust-coloured short boxy jacket (HK$2,690) and cropped pants (all far left; HK$1,390) would brighten up any workplace. To face winter in style, try pairing leggings (HK$2,445) with a simple ruffled top (HK$1,295) and loose fluffy mohair cardigan (all centre left; HK$2,245). Gat Rimon is available at Rue Madame, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7880.
