Hedi days French designer Hedi Slimane has injected a rock ‘n’ roll edge into the Saint Laurent brand. From ready-to-wear, to shoes and bags, the venerated fashion house is offering sharp pieces with a streamlined aesthetic. Let out your inner dominatrix with its triple zipper black leather chelsea boot (above; HK$10,350), the red and black snake leather heels (top left; HK$6,950) and the tomboy-friendly, red glitter lace-up trainers (top right; HK$4,750). Saint Laurent is in Alexandra House, Central.
Hang loose If French fashion brand Hermès were a person, it would surely be that girl who rolls out of bed, puts zero effort into her appearance and still looks amazing. Why? Because she's confident as hell. This personality is written all over the final collection of the now former creative director Christophe Lemaire. We love the twillaine pullover (HK$21,900) with matching skirt (HK$18,100; both above centre), the short scarf ochre collar coat in double face cashmere (above left; HK$47,200), and the bell dress with wax masques print (above right; HK$21,900). Hermès is in Lee Gardens, Causeway Bay.
Make a splash Home to the blonde and the beautiful, Scandinavia also boasts some of the gloomiest weather in the world. Think London but worse. Leave it then to contemporary Danish brand Rains to deliver a high-quality raincoat that is stylish, simple and sure to protect you from the tropical downpours of Hong Kong. Rains’ jackets can even be washed and ironed to ensure they stay super clean and wrinkle-free. Brighten up your day with its canary yellow jacket (top left; HK$880), stay anonymously chic with its black poncho (above right; HK$980), or opt for the formal sand-coloured trench jacket (above left; HK$1,080). Rains is available at Lovers & Friends, 24 Gough Street, Central.
