Rewriting the script It must be incredibly frustrating for those designers trying to keep up with Miuccia Prada. They come up with something innovative and then Mrs P just changes the game. She has done it again with her aristocratic autumn-winter men's collection, with Hollywood celebrities as models. We're big fans of Adrien Brody's red long coat (HK$45,400), trousers (HK$8,400), shirt (HK$4,600), shoes (HK$10,300) and details such as the handkerchief (HK$650) and brooch (all left; HK$2,400). English actor Gary Oldman brings his trademark gravitas to this look of long coat (HK$23,300), shirt (HK$4,600), trousers (HK$8,400), shoes (HK$10,300), handkerchief (HK$650) and brooch (far left; HK$2,400). Prada is in IFC Mall, tel: 2234 7211.





Get carried away Coach makes a lot of different goods these days, but fundamentally the brand is top of the class when it comes to leather bags. If you're looking for a bit of New York chic, go for the Bleecker leather colour-block tote bag (left; HK$6,500). And if you want to stand out a bit more on the morning commute, try the Legacy leather commuter bag in blue (right; HK$7,450). Coach is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7606.




Sweater sense Given how cold Sweden is for what must be 80 per cent of the year, it's no surprise that a Swedish brand such as COS really understands the need for functional yet fashionable winter clothing. Case in point: these roll-neck jumpers, which come in a variety of colour combinations. We pick the black and grey (left; HK$690) and the intriguing puce (far left; HK$390). COS is at 74 Queen's Road Central, tel: 3580 7938.




 Tough love If you're looking for shoes that will last for more than one season, head to C'N'C, which makes footwear that's not only sturdy but will also remain fashionable for a long time yet. We like the black leather zip-up boots (left; HK$4,300) and the quirky blue leather shoes (below; HK$3,150). C'N'C is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 0700.
