He's got the shades and a convertible to match, but who will Aaron Kwok be taking for a ride?

Canto-pop star Aaron Kwok Fu-shing talked about his new sunglasses, his new car and who its passengers might be on Wednesday at a cocktail party thrown by Austrian sunglass-maker Carrera.

He adores his new Carrera Champion sunglasses, made of Optyl, the brand's patented material known for being lightweight, non-allergenic and heat resistant.

On style, she rules

I was recently reminded of the convenience of Sunpocket folding sunglasses and how little space they take up. I saw them in local magazine Trendson (it was lying around a waiting room), but I don't read Chinese. So, are they back in fashion and on sale in the city? I've looked but haven't seen them.

Ready to Fold, SoHo

Dandy & Dapper

My husband and I have been invited to an Indian wedding this autumn, for which one of the daytime parties has a 1920s/ 30s/40s theme. Do you know of anywhere that supplies those round, retro sunglasses one sees in old Shanghai gangster movies?

Aviators will see you through the next season

Charles Lindbergh has outsoared every imaginable fashionable man living or dead as the carrier of the title of style icon of the season. His sartorial influence is everywhere from the many variations of aviator-style jackets at Burberry Prorsum to the knee-high leather boots at Tod's and even the pilot's cap and goggles at Zara and H&M.

The metro

Dressing a man is an exercise in precision and refinement. It requires the discipline of perfect military cadence and the deft technique employed by those who have mastered playing Rachmaninoff concertos. To dress a man is to use only the best - a perfectly cut suit, a tailored shirt, a tie knotted with just the right heft, and shoes that bear no scuffmarks.
