It is still the height of summer, but the fashion industry waits for no one - or nature.
Canto-pop idols Kary Ng Yu-fei and Pakho Chau Pak-ho broke out in a sweat by wrapping themselves in layered T-shirts and quilted jackets during a photo shoot for Adidas' autumn-winter collection, which lands in stores on Friday.
To echo the "Go Out and Play" theme, the duo were taken to Sai Kung for the campaign shoot, with top local photographer Franklin Lau and stylist Chen Dao.
Although they have been good friends for years and collaborated musically in the past, it was the first time Ng and Chau had been on a photo shoot together.
"It was my first time working on an autumn-winter campaign in the summer, and it's a very unforgettable experience," Ng said.
Keeping with the sporty theme of their sponsor, both stars said they did not slack off when it came to exercising in the chilly winter weather.
"My favourite winter sport is basketball, and it definitely keeps my spirits up when I wear something colourful and practical," Chau said.
Ng, who is perfectly toned, said she enjoyed stretching her legs in the great outdoors.
"I love hiking in autumn and winter. It's good exercise and I get to enjoy the beautiful scenery," she said.
It sounds like they are both looking forward to the end of summer.
