Look of the week


Collar 'necklaces' are all the rage right now. A faux Peter Pan shirt or denim collar suits almost any outfit and occasion. They've been featured in several of the latest K-Pop music videos, so they must be hot, hot, hot.

Jet set pets

LUXURY LIVING may have taken hit from the recent downturn in the global economy, but one curious trend that seems immune to bad news are pet services. Going on holiday with your beloved pets was once unthinkable and tearful goodbyes at the kennel or cattery was the norm, but now a whole host of airlines and hotels are catering exclusively to your furry loved ones.

On style, she rules

I just had a baby and heard one of the other new mums talking about these amazing machines from Germany that get rid of fat for you with some sort of vacuum? Please tell me where I can get one so I can drop this baby weight and get back into my old clothes.

The truly stylish earn their stripes

I have been doing some serious fashion reflection lately, and what sparked it off were two pairs of Levi's striped boxers I bought at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. These boxers are great: they are comfy, dry easily after washing and look simple and cheery. Who would have thought simple blue stripes would so delight me?

Canine cruelty

Dogs crammed into handbags, trussed up in pushchairs and stuffed up their owners' sweaters - you see it all the time.

If by chance you were near the restaurant now at the south end of Quarry Bay Park recently, you may well have encountered the bizarre sight of dozens of dogs being treated in all manner of undignified ways.

Corrections & clarifications

A White Collar item published yesterday should have said Mr Carlson Tong Ka-shing had stepped down as chairman of the stock exchange listing committee after having served his maximum term. He has not been jailed, as was erroneously inserted during the editing process. We apologise to Mr Tong and deeply regret the error.

A delicate palette

Bottega Veneta For women the collection has a pronounced subtlety. The palette is pale with greys, pink-tinged beiges, and barely-there shades of rice, butter and marble. An elongated silhouette, ample and fluid, suggests an altered sense of proportion while pleating, ruching, and other hand-worked details add volume.

Stripes have never gone out of fashion: they are classic, perpetually hip and somehow effortlessly chic.

Although horizontal stripes have been given a bad name, this is in fact a bit of a myth. As is the belief that vertical stripes are flattering (not true). Horizontal stripes can be extremely flattering - the trick is in the thickness of the stripe.

Collared with another cultural revolution?

Shanghai Tang boss Raphael le Masne de Chermont inaugurated his exclusive Mandarin Collar Society on Tuesday. The idea is to get men of style to replace their strangling neckties with the Chinese-style wear, starting with an invitation-only club of 88 distinguished gents from across the globe to act as ambassadors.

Men's club collars trend in mandarin neckline

Out with the neckties, guys, and in with the mandarin collar ... it is chic, cool, comfy, and well, revolutionary.

But for a collar that started with Sun Yat-sen's army, the mandarin collar will be promoted by an uber-exclusive club.

Tie, tie again

With cheeky disdain for tradition, Parisian luxury brand Hermes has released a witty new collection of ties called The Manifesto. Using the catchphrase 'A tie is, first and foremost, a tie', Hermes flouts convention and dictates that ties be worn according to the whims and preferences of the individual.

Collar sizes:

15 to 17 inches is the standard, although Dunhill insists on measuring in centimetres. 'It gives a slightly more accurate measurement, because one centimetre is smaller than half an inch,' says Martin Nicholls, custom and bespoke manager at Dunhill.
