Give me Moretti Tuscan shoemaker Alberto Moretti has become a favourite of celebrities as diverse as Lady Gaga, the king of Spain and Ryan Gosling, and it is easy to see why. We love his over-the-top take on staples - as seen on the attention-grabbing driving shoe (above; HK$4,295) and the lace-up (top; HK$5,995), which come with flashes of futuristic colour. Alberto Moretti is available at The Swank, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2810 0769.

 

   

Lim beau American-Chinese designer Phillip Lim seems to be everywhere these days: not content with a pop up store in Wan Chai, this month will see him open an outlet in IFC Mall. Lucky for us, then, that we love his quirky mix of minimalism and maximalist - as seen on items such as the patterned loose-fit crew neck T-shirt (above right; HK$3,190) and oversized box-fit, floral shirt (above left; HK$3,790). 3.1 Phillip Lim is, for now, at 21 Wing Fung Street, Wan Chai, tel: 2520 6266.

Pack man For years Tumi has been making sleekly designed and almost indestructible luggage, so, when the brand branched out into more casual lifestyle accessories, one had to wonder if it could pull it off. Judging by the Beacon Hill range, any doubts were misplaced. We love the Grove multifunctional backpack in royal blue (above left; HK$4,650), which has more pockets than might be strictly necessary. We're also big fans of the super-elegant Tremont tote bag (above right; HK$4,560) in leather and canvas. Tumi is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2790 1912.

The bright way "Colour, colour and more colour" seems to be the motto for Salvatore Ferragamo's spring-summer collection. Like children who've just discovered the possibilities of the Pantone colour booklet, Ferragamo has gone all out for vibrancy in looks such as the ensemble of paint-splash sports shirt (HK$5,500), patterned knit top (HK$7,800), sports trousers (HK$5,200) and Tower trainers in calf leather (all above right; HK$4,950). We also like the light grey suit jacket (HK$15,500) worn with white sports shirt (HK$2,800), knit top (HK$7,800), sports trousers (HK$5,200), printed tie (HK$1,500) and calf leather trainers (all above left; HK$4,950). Salvatore Ferragamo is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2845 2718.
