Obsession: Repetto shoes

Repetto shoes are a must-have for fashionistas thanks to their soft leathers and carefully constructed shapes. This season the brand has collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld on two styles that pay homage to its ballet origins. The high-heeled platform (HK$5,500) has a detachable ankle decoration that resembles a tutu. The flat sandal (HK$4,400) comes with the same decoration.

No mincing . . . just ribs and beefcake from Minsk

BACKSTAGE at the Cultural Centre at lunchtime yesterday with the Byelorussian Ballet as they went through their paces in readiness for last night's performance of Spartacus, we were quite intrigued by their choice of prandial fare.
