Bring on the fireworks If you received a big New Year’s bonus or simply want to drop some serious cash on a few hardearned sparklers, check out the stunning kaleidoscopic colours in Victoire de Castellene’s collections for Dior Joallerie. The Guipure Framboise Rebrodée ring (above left) is absolutely fabulous, its 18-carat yellow and pink gold encrusted with diamonds, pink spinels, pink tourmalines, fire opals, sapphires (in yellow, pink, orange and purple), amethysts, rubies and spessartine. Our favourites, though, are the 18-carat white-gold Dentelle Saphir Iris earrings (above right), studded with diamonds, sapphires, apatites, rubies, Paraiba tourmalines and amethysts. Prices are available upon request. Christian Dior is at 1 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 3417 3002.
Simply sensible Sporty fashion label Lacoste has been making major waves lately with its mix of minimalist, clean lines and contemporary styles. The Cathy blue cross-patterned clutch (above left; HK$2,280) and the Cathy blue suede mini bucket bag (above right; HK$3,500) are great for women who like to accessorise but want to stay away from anything too girly and superfluous. The bags are available at Seibu, Langham Place, Mong Kok, tel: 3514 4330.
Body and Seoul Korean fashion is fast becoming a major force in Asia, and Goen J's range of outerwear for the winter season is definitely fashion-forward. We can see this deconstructed, army green coat (above right; HK$6,500) on the cool girls of Causeway Bay. And why not light up the room in this gold leather biker jacket (above left; HK$14,260)? Goen J is at Harvey Nichols, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 3968 2668.
Going gaga for Gommino The loafers by Italian shoemaker Tod's are some of the most comfortable around. But if you are looking to go off the beaten path, away from the rainbow of iconic flats, look no further than the brand's limited-edition Gomminos. We adore the exotic black leather and white pony version (above left; HK$8,000) and the soft calfskin ones with a metallic, iridescent sheen (above right; HK$3,400). Tod's is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2810 8692.
