Get the Look: winter brights

Candy red was the top choice at brands such as Dior (pictured), Lanvin and Valentino, where it was used on dresses to create a sexy, sophisticated look.

A small fortune

At first glance, Mama Kid appears no different to any other hip concept store in Central, with its funky blue and white logo, designer furnishings, artwork by Tokyo-based Tomio Nagai and mix of dark, edgy clothing and boho prints (think Dries Van Noten). Its clientele, however, isn't the usual mix of tai tais and hipsters.
