Limited Diesel sale much tamer than Beijing stampede

It didn't quite match the long lines of those 'I'm Not a Plastic Bag' bags, but Diesel's one-day-only sale of special-edition jeans for its 30th anniversary did cause quite a commotion on Friday morning around town. Each of its five shops only had a small supply of the Dirty Thirty xXx jeans, which were sold for a relatively paltry HK$390, so fans were out early for the 10am opening.

Q Are animal abusers being treated too lightly?

I agree that animal abusers are being treated too lightly. When I read the news about a man who let his dog starve to death, I was astonished about how cruel and irresponsible he was. Did he regret or feel shame for what he had done?

On The Rack

Somebody call Unsolved Mysteries. Sasquatch chic has been spotted on the runway of local designer Lu Lu Cheung. The look, which brings back balaclavas in a big way, was one of several showpieces unleashed on audiences during Hong Kong's recent autumn/winter fashion week. No word yet on what to wear with it, but might we suggest a corn-cob pipe, a button nose and two eyes made out of coal?

That Oscar cachet

What is predicted to be a surefire winner in pre-autumn fashion collections? Dresses inspired by frocks worn by Oscar-winning stars.

The most obvious knock-off is Gwyneth Paltrow's bubblegum-pink silk gown (designed by Ralph Lauren), which has recently been done by United States brand ABS and is now retailing in US stores.

Guess who's going global

In touch with reality

GUESS who this quote came from: ''I think that it is quite important to keep going back so you are in touch with reality.'' Give up? That was First Lady Lavender Patten, speaking to British glossy Harper's and Queen about the importance she attached to getting back home to England from time to time.
