Royal selection

Ermanno Scervino's spring-summer collection comes in light pastels on flowing fabrics and embroideries influenced by the Indian state of Rajasthan and the era of the maharajas. We suspect the label is trying out an edgier look, having just announced Alice Dellal as its new poster girl. This season, we like the baby blue light summer coat (left; HK$36,995) with white lace lining and beaded collar. Or get super sweet with the button-down cropped jacket (HK$21,995) and shorts (both above; HK$8,395). Ermanno Scervino is available at The Swank, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2868 6990.

Geek sleek

Dress your technology in the clean lines of squarestreet's minimalist leather accessories. Take a look at the light brown laptop case (bottom; HK$800, built specifically for the 13-inch MacBook) or the single- button iPhone pouch (below; HK$450). We also like the two-button, stone grey, rectangular pouch (below right; HK$600) for carrying around your daily essentials. Squarestreet is at 15 Square Street, Sheung Wan, tel: 2362 1086.

Talk of the Ton

Club Monaco is trying to win over the young hipster by collaborating with Tommy Ton, celebrity street blogger and fashion photographer. The result is a limited capsule collection of cool minimalist bags for men and women, to be launched in Hong Kong on Tuesday. The bags, worn by Ton's friends and muses, were shot by the photographer as he did the rounds in the fashion-week circuits of New York, London, Milan and Paris. We like the black messenger bag (far left; HK$2,250) being held here by New York model/blogger Hanneli Mustaparta and the simple black leather and fabric backpack (left; HK$1,950) that shows Ton's eye for detail. Club Monaco is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 3586 3046.

Wedge bets

We've loved Yves Saint Laurent's shoes for a long time. The Cassyopee ankle strap sandal in black patent leather and red suede (far right; HK$7,730) will finish a bombshell look; but the T-strap pacific blue Riviera wedge (right; HK$6,450) is our current favourite. Yves Saint Laurent is in Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2868 0092.
