In Spades Pop-art-inspired retro is the theme du jour at Kate Spade and ladies who love a bit of humour with their style will not be disappointed. The “But Chad” day-cation tote (left; HK$1,400) would be a great accessory for fun days out and, for the evening, there’s the Radio Samira bag in mint (below right; HK$2,600). The black and white Hollywood Hills Antonia shoulder bag (below left; HK$3,000) is a great precursor to spring’s big graphic trend. Kate Spade is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2116 4998.











La Perla wisdom For those of you not spending Valentine’s Day talking to your cat, watching Bridget Jones and drinking an entire bottle of wine (nothing wrong with that, in my opinion), you might want to get started on Valentine’s shopping. Look no further than La Perla, one of our favourite lingerie labels. We love the tangerine set (above left; HK$2,863 for bra, HK$1,850 for bottoms) for a fresh, sweet ensemble and the racy red set (above right; HK$2,863 for bra, HK$1,523 bottoms) if you’re going for more of an “exotic dancer” look. La Perla is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3509.
