Planning a fall It might be the peak of summer, but it's never too early to begin preparing for a change of season, and Lanvin's pre-autumn collection would be a great place to start. We like the brand's more revealing pieces, in particular the strapless red number (HK$34,100) - a little simple maybe, but it's well matched with the gorgeous flower-shaped brooch (both above right; HK$20,600). The black dress (HK$39,600), with a gather of fabric at the back, is paired perfectly with an almost brutal pair of black ankle heels (both above left; HK$10,000). Lanvin is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2523 9512.

Bright-eyed Shading your eyes while lounging away on your summer holiday is essential - not just for ocular protection, but to keep things chic. French brand Agatha can help you keep it ultra-fashionable this season with its new sunglasses collection, called Retro 70's. We recommend taking the tortoiseshell Butterfly pair (centre left; HK$640) to the beach. We also like The Curve (top; HK$530), in rouge red, and the blinged out Elegance (above; HK$640), in grey. Agatha is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 0808.


Moving on up Repetto might be known around the world for its ballet shoes, but one has to adapt to keep up in the fast-paced world of fashion, and the French brand's latest collection of handbags sees it doing just that. On the surface, many of the pieces resemble shoes taken apart and made into totes in soft, fluid lines. We like the Grand Manege bag from the Etoile collection, which is available in a bright red (left; HK$4,900). We're also into the subtle sandstone-coloured Diagonale (below; HK$6,000). Repetto is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2521 2068.



Victoria beckons It's amazing how much a piece of jewellery can affect an entire look - Italian jeweller Pomellato's latest collection, Victoria, is filled with look-transforming pieces, especially when modelled by actress Tilda Swinton, the face of the company. The lovely Victoria earrings (far left; HK$40,070), in rose gold with white agate, are simple and subtle, but with an intricate design. We also like the matching Victoria pendant (left; HK$71,930), set in a chain of rose gold, pyrite and rock crystal. Pomellato is in IFC Mall, tel: 2234 7283.
