Hot box A new season means a new batch of Alexander McQueen's rounded box clutches, and it's easy to see why we keep coming back for more. From the embroidered baroque floral version (below left; HK$18,400) to the laser-cut, white-on-black leather version (far left; HK$21,200) and the rather muted gemmed-up cream clutch (above left; HK$12,800), each piece is a little work of art. Alexander McQueen is available at On Pedder, 16 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2118 3489.
Check please Marni fans will love the heeled checked loafers with contrast leather tops (right and above right; HK$5,400 a pair) and the simple, contrast-colour, small leather bag (below right; HK$3,800). Marni is available at Lane Crawford, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 3388.
On the edge Valentino always puts on the most beautiful shows, and designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have now added a rock 'n' roll edge to its ethereal style. This autumn, the black leather cape (HK$70,500), leather skirt (HK$32,500) and strappy shoes (all above left; HK$5,800) create a formidable look. The sequinned, patterned floor-length gown (above right; HK$410,000) is breathtaking. And in Valentino red, the fitted maxi coat (HK$46,500), leather trouser-skirt (HK$28,000) and shoes (all above centre; HK$5,800) are show-stoppers. Valentino is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2523 8035.
