Hot stepper Finding the perfect sandal for summer is no mean feat. Rene Caovilla's T-bar version (above; HK$9,990), with thin, elegant straps and added glamour by way of diamantes, is gorgeously minimal. For you glam girls who prefer something worthy of a Bollywood wedding, the gem-encrusted black stiletto sandal (top; also HK$9,990) might be more up your alley. Rene Caovilla is available at Harvey Nichols, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 3695 3388.

Young at heart The youthful Valentino Red line comes in a more accessible price range than its parent label and has a flirty, feminine vibe. This is clear from the little pink sequinned evening bag with oversized leather bow (above right; HK$4,150) and the summery watercolour floral print trench (above left; HK$10,350). Valentino is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2523 8035.


April cool Stylish tech holders are all the rage and neither the python-effect April iPad sleeve in nougat (above left; HK$1,340) nor the mint green iPhone sleeve (above centre; HK$750) from See by Chloé will break the bank. We're also eyeing the April long wallet (above right; HK$2,040). See by Chloé is available at

Body popping We're always on the hunt for easy summer looks that work well in the Hong Kong heat. White is a no brainer, but adding a light pop of colour can prevent an outfit from looking clinical. For city casuals, we like Calvin Klein Jeans' basic white vest (HK$390) and yellow stretch-denim trousers (both above left; HK$1,290) and the white and blue tie-dye long-sleeve woven shirt (HK$990) with white shorts (both above right; HK$990). Calvin Klein Jeans is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 9506.
