Going loco 3.1 Phillip Lim is a brand on the rise and Hong Kong men can now get their hands on the menswear collection, which is on display at a pop-up shop in Wan Chai. Hurry though, it's only open for 10 months. We like the plain blue crewneck T-shirt (above right; HK$2,990) and the irreverent black crewneck T-shirt with mirrored loco print (above left; HK$1,690). 3.1 Phillip Lim is at 21 Wing Fung Street, tel: 2520 6266.
Skirting the issue Jean Paul Gaultier has been trying to get men to wear skirts for years and it looks like 2013 may finally be the year he succeeds. We couldn't bring ourselves to recommend any, but we do still love Monsieur Gaultier's theatricality, as seen in these lovely jackets. The classic, almost Victorian feel of the long-tail coat (above left; HK$21,980) is sure to garner attention and contrasts with the defiantly modern jacket with cryptic number-print sleeves (HK$12,980). Jean Paul Gaultier is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 0374.
Med threads Sicily, in most people's minds, is associated with volcanoes, ancient ruins and the mafia. To that list we can add the Dolce & Gabbana spring collection, which is inspired by the sun-baked, dusty island. We love this beach-ready look of T-shirt (HK$2,700), shorts (HK$4,800), brown leather belt (HK$3,000), shoes (HK$6,300) and leather bag (all above right; HK$28,400). Alternatively, perfect for those warm evenings, is the wonderfully cut striped jacket (HK$11,700), shirt (HK$3,400), trousers (HK$4,500) and shoes (all above left; HK$6,300). Dolce & Gabbana is available at Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2877 5558.
Future's bright With spring sunshine just around the corner, it's time for a new pair of shades and the Calvin Klein Collection might have just what you need. We recommend the sporty aviator glasses (below; HK$1,750), while the slightly boxy frames (above; HK$1,480) are an elegant alternative. Calvin Klein is in Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2317 7871.
