Pink rocks Tory Burch might be known for chic handbags but its forays into the world of footwear have proved popular, too. And this summer, it's the pink numbers that are grabbing the attention: first, there's the heeled Kailey Sandal in Fire (top right; HK$3,180) in high-shine patent leather. There's also the Eddie Bow ballet flat (top left; HK$2,480), which is casual and suitable for everyday use. Finally, there's the coral Violet Thong (above; HK$2,480), which can be worn when dressing up or down. Tory Burch is at IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7282.
Simple treasures Massive bling is one thing but sometimes we like our jewellery a little simpler. Max Maraalways puts out a great range of apparel and handbags, andthis season we also like its accessories. Take a look at theWeekend necklace (above; HK$780), which uses a tropicaltwo-tone shell-like frame - the perfect complement to aflowing summer dress. Max Mara is available atThe Landmark, Central, tel: 2523 7592.
My bag A fresh wardrobe demands a decent set of accessories to go with it, and the ideal starting point is a fetching bag. MCM is known for classic leather models but this season it has collaborated with pop-artists Craig & Karl on its Eyes on the Horizon collection. Sure, most of them are a little too cute and pop, but we like the eccentricity of the Briefcase (above left; HK$7,700) and the funkiness of the Backpack (above right; HK$8,300). MCM is in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 3101 0306.
Summer fun With summer in full swing, why not start afresh with something modern? DKNY's summer collection is an interesting mix of monochrome patterns, bright colours and casual evening wear. We like the outfit of scoop-neck top (HK$2,590), narrow trousers (HK$2,790) and matching scarf (all above right; HK$1,390). For something more minimal, the colour-blocked sleeveless sheath dress (above left; HK$3,390) is a stand out. Sadly the boots are not yet available in Hong Kong. DKNY is in Lee Gardens, Causeway Bay, tel: 2895 1388.
