1.  Edge hog It's hard to fathom, but McQ is seen as the edgier, more rebellious line of Alexander McQueen, which itself does a roaring trade in controversy and shock. Anyway, if you're looking to amp up your accessories then no look no further than McQ, which by inference is the edgiest of the edgiest of brands out there. We've picked out the graffiti-strewn backpack (left; HK$4,160) and the snakeskin-patterned leather messenger bag (right; HK$4,620). McQ is in Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3389.

2.  Good for the sole In 2017, Nike's Air Max line will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Yes, the Air Max has been around longer, much longer, than Justin Bieber has been alive. Despite its age, the Air Max is still as fresh and hip as ever and we love the 2014 iteration, the Air Max Motion NSW (top; HK$1,799), which comes in a blue and black combination with a transparent air bubble that runs the length of the sole. These days Nike's flyknit shoes are more to the taste of fashionistas than sportsfolk and the Free Inneva Woven SP (bottom; HK$1,499) is a standout, particularly the blue version. Nike is available at Sogo, 555 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay, tel: 2895 5668.

3.  Show pony We're well into the Year of the Horse now and, if you haven't already saddled up with some equine-flavoured accessories, then perhaps it's time you took the reins and moseyed on over to ST Dupont's stable in Central to see its thoroughbred offerings. OK, enough with the horse puns already. If you are keen, however, then the label's Horse Haute Premium Collection includes the exquisite Year of the Horse Neo-classique large fountain pen (left; HK$15,500) and Ligne 2 lighter (right; HK$13,300). ST Dupont is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2877 4138.

4.  Double standards Lanvin is one of those rare menswear lines to have not one but two fashion geniuses at the helm, with Lucas Ossendrijver and creative head Alber Elbaz both bringing their A-game to the spring collection. Eschewing all the other trends, including prints, Elbaz and Ossendrijver have instead focused on creating a varied collection that has what they call "relevance" and a surfeit of options. Looks that straddle both the formal and informal include the Yves Klein blue skinny fit jacket (HK$15,920) and trousers (HK$4,500), with white shirt (HK$12,600) and white leather shoes (HK$9,100; all far right). We also like this look of jacket (HK$15,920), blue shirt (HK$12,600), man's clutch (HK$17,000) and patterned loafers (HK$9,700; all right), the trousers and tie are yet to be priced for Hong Kong. Lanvin is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7686.
