Cavalli calling Roberto Cavalli created Just Cavalli to be more daring and edgy than the mainline collection and with these trainers it is definitely on the right track. We love the rebelliousness of the lace-up black leather high-top (above right; HK$4,695) and the snake-pattern leather mid-length boot (above left; HK$3,895). Just Cavalli is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 9882.

 

Carry it off Better known for trendy shoes, Cole Haan is also a deft hand at bags and accessories. It's all bright bursts of colour for the spring-summer collection and we recommend you take a look at the orange leather slim bill fold wallet (above right; HK$1,200) and the wonderfully assembled two-tone leather messenger bag (above left; HK$3,880). Cole Haan is in Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong, tel: 2265 8386.

 

      

Prada and glory For its spring-summer collection, Prada has roped in the effortlessly cool Benicio del Toro and fellow actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Del Toro, if we're honest, could wear a dustbin bag and still look presentable, but Miuccia Prada has him looking brooding in this look of coat (HK$24,050), shirt (HK$10,500) and trousers (all above right; HK$6,550), all in kid mohair. Taylor-Johnson, on the other hand, looks youthful and full of promise in this look of cashmere shirt (HK$7,300), cashmere gilet (HK$6,050), cotton trousers (HK$9,250) and Spazzolato shoes (all above left; HK$5,950). Prada is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7211.

 

Keep it short It's warm enough now to do away with the long trousers, so start sunning your pasty pins in a pair of Aigle shorts. We love the summery bubblegum pink version (above right; HK$820), which would be great for the beach. The Lodgerston gingham shorts (above left; HK$980) would help you fit right in at the country club. Aigle is in Elements, 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon, tel: 2196 8698.
