Former actress Hilary Tsui Ho-ying's eccentric fashion senses seem to be rubbing off on her husband, Canto-pop king Eason Chan Yik-shun.

In collaboration with fashion retailer Catalog and illustration label Little People, Chan is helping to raise money for charity with a sweatshirt featuring a cartoon character inspired by his concert look.

"My daily uniform is a T-shirt matched with loose-cut trousers and flip-flops, and that's why I suggested that we design a sweat shirt that matches my look," Chan said. "The design also revealed a little secret of mine - that I really love the colour blue. You can see it's the colour of the flip-flops I wear in the design."

Chan's celebrity friend Michelle Reis showed her support by wearing the sweatshirt. "The cartoon character is very realistic. Although I was not told that the character was Eason when I was given the sweatshirt, I was able to tell as soon as I saw it."

It is in stores in Hong Kong and Beijing, with all proceeds going to the Children's Cancer Foundation. A unique luxe version encrusted with Swarovski crystals will be up for silent auction. E-mail your name, contact number and the price you have in mind to before December 20.
