Oggy oggy Boggi Simpatico, tutti frutti, calcio. Things always sound better in Italian. To that list you can add pochettes, which sounds infinitely more elegant than “pocket square”. Pochettes have been all the rage in menswear for a while now but, if we’re honest, most guys haven’t embraced the trend, preferring uniform colours and sensible folds. Well, we suggest you live a little and follow the Milanese by adding a dash of sprezzatura to your outfit with a Boggi Milano silk pochette (above; HK$450 each), which comes in a variety of patterns including paisley and florals. If you’re feeling really tutti frutti why not try the Cagney or Scallop fold to mix things up? Boggi Milano is in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Wandering star Christopher Bailey is trying to tell us something. Burberry's spring-summer menswear collection is so obviously inspired by travel and a yearning to wander, you have to wonder if its chief honcho is getting enough holiday allowance. Regardless, Bailey being trapped at Burberry HQ is good news for fans, particularly when he continually comes up with winning looks such as this vibrant ensemble of long cardigan (HK$19,500), patterned T-shirt (HK$3,400), trousers (HK$7,500), black leather shoes (HK$5,800), patterned leather bag (HK$22,000) and the season's signature floppy sun hat (HK$3,300; all above right). The same hat, this time in yellow, makes an appearance in this look of ready-for-the-road print leather biker jacket (HK$41,000), print scarf (HK$9,500) and T-shirt (HK$3,400), trousers (HK$7,500), multicolour leather trainers (HK$5,800) and patterned leather bag (HK$2,500; all above left). Burberry Prorsum is in Alexandra House, Central.
Brave soles Jazzing up your pocket square is a neat way to inject colour and patterns into your look, but if you're feeling extremely brave, or have a burning desire to stand out from the crowd, then may we suggest checking out Ted Baker's spring-summer footwear? We can't get enough of the classy floral-print leather Chorpri brogues (above right; HK$2,295) and the Mercuri printed-fabric derby shoe (above left; HK$1,995), which is just the right side of painter-decorator chic. Ted Baker is in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
