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.

Skinny jeans and black trousers have dominated our wardrobes for long enough, which is why I am excited about spotting wide legged trousers all over town.

The best thing about this trend is that unlike its ultra-lean counterparts, it works for all shapes and sizes from skinny pins to curvy booties a la Jennifer Lopez.

A well-tailored blazer

Invest in something fabulous now, because they will be all the rage for autumn.

New Sioux

Italian footwear brand Berluti looked west for inspiration for its new Indio shoe collection. Inspired by the footwear of Native Americans, the shoes are described as 'city trainers'. These lightweight shoes feature an inner sole with gel that moulds to the arch, making them perfect for the executive on the go. Other features include Berluti's signature saddle-stitching.

Two words sum up the fun, madness and sheer debauchery of Sevens weekend - South Stand.

It is on this famous terrace that the most fun is had; it's got more bishops than the Vatican and more al-Qaeda than Guantanamo Bay. It's the heart and soul of the event.

But, if the truth be told, it can all get a wee bit messy.

New 'concept store'-cum-cafe Joyce Is Not Here is different in many ways. Its hours, for starters, are 7.58am to 10.02pm Monday to Thursday, closing one hour later on Fridays and Saturdays, and 'up to us' on Sundays, although the opening times will probably change now it has an alcohol licence.
