1.  New moves Hong Kong-based bag designer Fiona Kotur is taking a step in a new direction with the launch of her first-ever shoe collection. The line features three styles that, Kotur says, evoke a sense of whimsy, bohemian chic and joyful expression. Inspired by the exotic destinations of Turkey and Morocco, expect tribal embellishments and rich desert colours matched with plenty of fashion fantasy. Highlights include the Guzel (left), which features mirrors and silk tassels on snakeskin, suede and leather, and the Jardines sandal (right), which is a tribute to nature with its colourful silk floral blooms. Each pair costs HK$5,070 is available at www.koturltd.com.

2.  Double duty Looks can often be deceiving, as is the case with Prada's newly launched Double Bag (pictured; HK$21,500 each). Although minimal in design, it is made using hi-tech techniques that make it super-lightweight. It also features different leathers on the exterior and interior, either in tone-on-tone or contrasting colours. Added details include an internal divider with a flap pocket, buttons on the side to expand the size and a buckle on the straps. It's available in a rainbow of colours - ranging from emerald green and turquoise to blush and beige - at Prada, Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2522 2989.

3. Light show While many designers jump from trend to trend, Giorgio Armani continues to build on his signature look each season. Spring-summer is no exception, with a collection titled "Lights and Shadows" that seamlessly fits in with his light, feminine aesthetic. The palette includes airy combinations of silver and grey, which come alive on a double-breasted blouson jacket (HK$13,000), silk satin shirt (HK$9,400) and bias cut skirt (HK$15,000; all left). Blues and pinks also make an appearance, in the impeccably tailored jacket with kimono sleeves (HK$20,000) and organza shirt (HK$7,100) and skirt (HK$9,800; all right), featuring a faded, romantic pattern. Giorgio Armani is in Chater House, Central, tel: 2532 7777.
