Going brogue American shoemaker Rockport straddles that curious market between smart and casual as it mixes classic styles with modern comforts such as adiPrene shock-absorbing insoles, courtesy of parent company adidas. We're big fans of the brown two-tone brogue (below left; HK$2,999) and the black brogue with rubber sole (top left; HK$1,399). Rockport is at 20 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2869 5215.





On the right track After linking up with Canto-pop sensation Eason Chan Yik-shun and throwing impromptu street parties, adidas Originals is seemingly everywhere at the moment. So why not join the fun with an adidas Originals hooded track top - the pick of the bunch being the classic royal blue (right; HK$549) and the streetwise white and navy (far right; HK$649). Adidas is at 6 Kingston Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2504 2186.




Industrial revelation Industrial designers don't usually dabble in fashion but Australian Marc Newson has successfully crossed the divide to collaborate with G-Star. Our favourite picks are the engineered khaki trousers (far left; HK$1,695) and navy jeans (left; HK$1,795). G-Star is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 3101 0520.








Dressed to kill Belgian wunderkind Kris van Assche, artistic director for Dior Homme, has clearly been watching a lot of war movies, judging by his distinctly military-tinged autumn-winter collection. Tank greens, camouflage prints and baseball caps dominate in another strong collection. We're particularly taken by the green outfit, with lambskin hooded parka (HK$57,000) in the starring role, supported ably by flannel trousers (HK$6,100), rollneck alpaca jumper (HK$7,800) and flannel baseball cap (all far right; HK$3,500). A striking, embroidered bird pattern that manages to look like camouflage dominates this next look in black: the blouson (HK$39,000), belted jacket (HK$16,500), flannel shirt (HK$5,200), woollen trousers (HK$8,100) and cashmere flannel cap (all right; HK$3,500). Dior Homme is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2524 8277.
