It may have been grey and drab outside, but inside the Grand Hyatt Pool House, Anteprima's season preview brought a bit of spring and summer fun - with a sporty yet sexy collection of mini shorts and A-line dresses with see-through elements in creams and muted pastels.

Celebrity brand fans seen catching up on Thursday included Amanda Strang, Jennifer Tse Ting-ting, Lynn Xiong Dailin and actress Anita Yuen Wing-yee. It seems keeping up with her six-year-old son has done the latter a world of good - Yuen stepped out looking fabulous, and showed her fun, coquettish side as she flirted at the cameras in a form-fitting dress.

'It's amazing how boys seem to have an endless supply of energy,' Yuen said. 'I have to take him out regularly to burn some of it up so both of us can sleep better at night. We hike mountains; he loves picking rocks and leaves. I've become an outdoors person thanks to that.'

Sporting a matching page boy haircut, model-entrepreneur Strang chatted about married life and her bakery cafe Petite Amanda.

'Frankly, not much has changed between us since [my husband and I got married]; we'd been together for nine years, so we have a very solid and close-set circle of mutual friends. At the bakery, we are planning some fun Easter items, like the cake wrapped with a chocolate bunny. Things are going well, and I'm itching to open a second branch, ideally in Causeway Bay, but I have to pace myself. '
