Sober stylings Greys and other muted colours are the order of the day for Canali's autumn-winter collection. The toned-down palette may ostensibly appear like a conservative or even old-fashioned move but dialing down the theatrics allows Canali's fantastic tailoring to come to the fore. We love the assertive look of field jacket (HK$11,000), trousers (HK$7,500), shirt (HK$3,000), tie (HK$2,000) and shoes (all left; HK$6,000). We're also big fans of the evening look, with jacket (HK$14,000), trousers (HK$5,500), waistcoat (HK$3,700), shirt (HK$2,400), tie (HK$2,000), shoes (HK$6,000) and handkerchief (all far left; HK$800). Canali is available at IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 5718.
It's all in the wrist
Links of London had a good summer, with the London Olympics proving a boon for its sport-themed accessories. Now that the Games are over, the brand is back to taking inspiration from the city itself. We're especially fond of the London Blue Topaz T-bar cufflinks (right; HK$3,100) and the slick Sloane Square cufflinks (above right; HK$1,850). Links of London is at Shop 3223, Level 3, Gateway Mall, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2317 1613.
Raining supreme The weather has taken a turn for the better, but winter is on its way. Prepare the elements with some choice outdoor wear from Calvin Klein. The rain shouldn't be a problem with this navy raincoat (left; HK$5,690) and the wind doesn't stand a chance with this thick grey wool peacoat (far left; HK$4,990). Calvin Klein is available in Lane Crawford, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 3388.
Flash in the Haan
Cole Haan has a well-earned reputation for making quality, classic shoes. That's all well and good, but perhaps less well known are the brand's niftier, fashion-forward shoes, such as these not-for-the-faint-of-heart white brogues with navy soles (bottom; HK$2,980). We're also big fans of the black ankle-length boots with white soles (right; HK$3,280). Cole Haan is at Festival Walk, Shop LG 1-22, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong, tel: 2265 8386.
