Shape of things to come Sometimes less is more. Danish luxury brand Georg Jensen demonstrates this perfectly in its autumn-winter collection. The Nocturne range focuses on design and simple but solid lines, harnessing the power of geometry. The bracelet (far right; HK$2,950) featuring a metallic diamond design is a lesson in sophistication while the triangular drop earrings (right; HK$1,980) offer a punkier edge. Georg Jensen is in Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 3118.


Modern twist Every woman needs a little black cocktail dress - and we love the charm of a good cheongsam. Shanghai Tang offers a bit of both this season. The black wool crepe and leather dress (above left; HK$6,900) evokes 1960s elegance with a distinctively modern silhouette. For something a little brighter, there's the wool blend embroidered watercolour coat (HK$6,800) worn over a silk blend tunic (HK$3,300) and cigarette trousers (HK$3,280), with the red hip belt (HK$1,680; all above right) injecting a little attitude. Shanghai Tang is in Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2918 1505.


Something for the weekend Let's face it, it's hard to find a fashionable and practical bag for a weekend voyage. So thank you, Chloé, for the Baylee large weekend bag (above; HK$16,970), in earthy-toned calfskin. Or for days out, take a look at the Vanessa cross-body bag in leather (right; HK$11,240). Chloé is in Lee Gardens, Causeway Bay, tel: 2808 4755.



Tough enough? By adding elements such as spikes and double zips, Converse has raised street chic to a whole new level - its iconic shoes are no longer just for sulking, grungy teenagers. This autumn, the American trainer brand has infused its collections with dark colours, creating a tough-girl vibe via special washes and distressing methods. The Chuck Taylor All Star Rock Craftsmanship Converse (above; HK$699) with its dash of neon would go well with a simple tank top and denim shorts. Also from the Chuck Taylor collection, the army-green All Star Studded Converse (top right; also HK$699) would be a great match for boyfriend jeans. Converse is available at Sogo, 555 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay, tel: 2831 8659.
