Hair apparent

New Yorker Colette Malouf's 1920s-inspired hair accessories have been shimmering on the coiffures and weaves of Hollywood's elite - and with good reason. The eye-catching designs are routinely described as 'jewellery for your hair' by fashion bloggers. We are loving Malouf's new pieces, in particular the hand-beaded floral headband (right; HK$2,390), the crocheted orchid hair clips (top; HK$1,690) and the sparkling crystal-studded hair pin twin-set (above; HK$1,590). Colette Malouf is available at Harvey Nichols, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 3968 2668.

Put a ring on it

We are loving the collection of fiendish pleasures at Pretty Dangerous, a Hong Kong-based online shopping portal that offers a range of jewellery with a wicked edge. Standouts include the silver Galactica ring (far left; HK$3,200), with its hard-rock cool, and the devilishly delish Cranium Damien sterling silver ring (left; HK$2,850). Pretty Dangerous products are available at www.prettydangerous.com.hk.

In the name of the rose

For the Moroccan-born Israeli designer of the French house of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz, winter is no reason eschew beautiful flowers in full bloom. A flora-and-fauna-themed line (albeit in muted shades or in stark black and white) hit the catwalk this season. Particularly popular (and selling out fast in Central) are the rose-print dresses, including the puffy, girlish black-and-white version (far left; HK$44,000). The dark number with a distressed U-shaped top (left; HK$31,500) also gets our vote. Lanvin is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7323.

Take a shine

Put your right foot forward this new year in a Badgley Mischka sequined peep-toe shoe (below; HK$3,700). Or, for those big nights out, there's the silver satin-bowed sandal (bottom; HK$3,700). Badgley Mischka is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.
