Big it up Chunky jewellery is very in vogue at the moment. Work the trend with BCBG’s gold braided snake chain necklace (HK$1,990) and cuff (HK$1,970) and match them with a simple, graphic outfit. BCBG in at the Landmark, Central, tel: 2868 9873.
Spreading the cheer Maybe we’re feeling pre-emptively Christmassy but the glossy red of Tumi’s patent leather bags is filling us with festive cheer. The Poppy Boulevard tote bag (right; HK$4,560) would make a great shopper while the Poppy Voyager (far right; HK$3,640) is a handy tablet and gadget carrier. Tumi is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 4688.
No mean feat As party season approaches, outrageous heels and daring footwear come to mind. Alexander McQueen’s black and white heels (far left; HK$21,500), with metallic rivets and brogue detailing, and the pink chiffon “invisible heel” shoe (HK$55,000) are both striking examples, even if they don’t come cheap. The shoes are available from On Pedder, 16 Queens Road Central, tel: 2118 3489.
Mr or Mrs Smith Paul Smith might be known for menswear, but his androgynous women’s labels are super chic, too. The impressionist stripe top (HK$8,800) and trousers (both far right; HK$8,400) make for an interesting ensemble. Then there is the subverted cool of the men’s tuxedo-inspired outfit: sheer top with white collar (HK$8,900), tuxedo jacket (HK$6,300) and trousers (all right; HK$3,300). Paul Smith is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2522 9788.
