My precious Since being named runner up in the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, American accessory designer Eddie Borgo has become something of a style staple. His eponymous label is now sold at more than 200 retailers worldwide, with products that are a study in geometry, architecture and graphic shapes. We're loving the silver bracelet with chain detail (above right; HK$5,850) and the silver and gold earrings (above left; HK$3,390). Eddie Borgo available at Lane Crawford, IFC Mall.
Tough cookies Thanks to the likes of Tilda Swinton, Milla Jovovich and the many androgynous models who now strut down catwalks, strong is indeed the new skinny. And though we may not be able to get away with a killer buzz cut, we can certainly follow suit with our wardrobe. On our shopping list is Lanvin's puff-sleeve shirt in white washed silk taffeta (HK$10,500) and trousers in black stretch gabardine with satin stripes (HK$8,200; both above right). Alternatively, there's the patterned shirt in silk crepe (HK$15,800), mini skirt (HK$8,900) and Jiji handbag in black and blue calfskin (HK$18,300; all above left). Lanvin is at 10 Ice House Street, Central.
Hands free Sprezzatura is the Italian word for the art of doing something perfectly without any apparent effort. So, the next time you see a gorgeous woman strutting down the street in beautifully cut white trousers and actually pulling the look off, she has perfected sprezzatura. Other ways to look stylish without trying? We recommend these latest bags from Tom Ford, including the mini tassel bucket bag (above right; HK$14,000) and the medium Natalie day bag (above left; HK$19,200). Tom Ford is in IFC Mall, Central.
Hot stuff It's nearly that time of year again when we have to say farewell to our fabulous winter wardrobe. Fortunately, Tory Burch's latest collection will ensure that the transition is painless. On our wish list is the Blossom running shoe in blush (above right; HK$3,080) and the Positano lace-up platform espadrille (above left; HK$3,280). Tory Burch is available at Lee Garden Two, Causeway Bay.
