Scents of humour The loveable Charlotte Olympia has built her footwear brand on a tongue-in-cheek take on old Hollywood glamour, but the designer has been steadily evolving her eponymous label. Known for sky-high sex-kitten heels, Olympia is getting kudos now for her range of whimsical evening clutches. The round classic pink Perfume clutch (above left; HK$10,650) and a boxy blue type (top right; HK$10,300) lead the way in this year's trend for see-through accessories. We also like the crystal-encrusted clear Pandora box clutch (above centre; HK$6,200), which comes with three pouches, one of which is gold (above right) and a spider clasp. The bags are available at On Pedder, 16 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2118 3489.
Mute points Salvatore Ferragamo's pre-spring collection focuses mostly on a palette of coral, turquoise, yellow and red. However, we love the muted tones of the Samoa open-toe ankle boots in calf (above right; HK$7,600) and the subtle Sky sandals in calf with chain detail (above left; HK$6,950). Salvatore Ferragamo is in Elements, 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon, tel: 2196 8031.
Seeing colours You could do worse than shade your eyes from the blinding sun with a pair of stylish Pucci sunglasses. Whether it's the more classic 1960s bug-eye style (above right; HK$2,950) or the darker butterfly-like frames (above left; HK$2,950) - this is eyewear that channels a free spirit with elements of Pucci's famously colourful psychedelic prints. Pucci is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 4698.
Let loose A long, loose bohemian dress can be your best friend when you're trying to stay elegant in the heat and humidity. Gucci's burgundy light silk pleated georgette gown (above left; HK$33,500) and white infinity printed silk georgette strapless gown with floral hem (above centre; HK$27,000) ooze femininity and romance. For the more mod-style girl, we'd pick the short pale yellow dress (HK$36,000), which comes embellished with floral embroidery and gemstones on the neckline. Gucci is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2524 4492.
