Petal pushing Real men love flowers. Even men with allergies. Actually those guys are more "real". Or something. Anyway, we're getting sidetracked, so where were we? Yes, flowers and men. Well, it's still a thing in menswear, so if you want to stand out then get yourselves down to Ted Baker and pick from the range of floral-print shirts, such as this navy half-shirt (above left; HK$1,195) and the full-length, full-flower red number (above right; HK$2,750). Ted Baker is in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Killer camo Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche recently stopped by Hong Kong to show off his autumn-winter collection and The goods can confirm it was rather good. But that's a few months away. In the meantime, the spring-summer collection isn't too shabby either and we especially like the accessories. Our picks are the camo-print leather cardholder (above right; HK$2,600) and the camo and flower print leather pouch (above left; HK$5,400). Dior Homme is in The Landmark.
Blaze a trail Puma perhaps doesn't get as much attention as its rivals, Adidas and Nike, but that's a good thing as it gives the brand an underdog (undercat?) charm and cool. And that cool is only reinforced by the clever collaborations Puma does with innovative designer houses such as Alexander McQueen and Alife. One of our faves is Puma x Stampd, with the uber-cool Los Angeles design studio, and the latest collection includes the Blaze of Glory running shoe that comes in two styles: in black with a strap front (above left; HK$1,390) and in all-white with a toggle front (above right; HK$1,590). Puma is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central.
K for cool K-pop, K-wave, K-soap, K-film, the list goes on. Is there anything the Koreans can't do? Yes - cheese. Trust us, we've googled it. But perhaps the best thing Koreans do is fashion. We like streetwear brand Solid Homme and, from the latest collection, we recommend the on-trend bomber jacket (above left; HK$6,690) and the embroidered sweatshirt (above right; HK$3,590). Solid Homme is available at Harvey Nichols.
