PUT away your Poison and hide away your Joy. Fashionable scents of the '90s are not just unisex - they are also unknown and almost impossible to find. Acqua di Parma, a fresh fragrance favoured by Audrey Hepburn and now wafted around by the likes of Manolo Blahnik, is enjoying a resurgence in Paris, Milan and New York. Lorenzo Villoresi, a Florence-based perfumier who makes personalised scents, also creates a 'boutique' line which sells at a few hand-picked stores worldwide. Look out for an 'innocent and ethereal' French fragrance that has something of a cult following. It's now newly available locally. The description is appropriate given that it comes in two varieties - Angel's Breath and Angel's Love. These are much more pleasant - and New Age-y - monikers than current designer perfumes like Donna Karan's Chaos, Gucci's Envy and Dior's Poison. But hardcore perfume fans can still update their fragrance wardrobes by opting for Chanel's revamped No 5. The classic scent is now in new colour-infused packaging inspired the work of Andy Warhol. Limited edition bottles, of course, are a must-have. print and be damned GIANNI Versace has had better years. Firstly, there was that ruckus when he annoyed the entire British royal family by using naughty pictures in a coffee table book that had been inscribed by Princess Di - who naturally refused to show up at the launch. Now, according to reports from New York Versace has landed himself in a bit of a tight spot again; for his latest collection, the flamboyant designer chose to forsake his signature Medusa motifs for NeoGeo prints. Nothing wrong with that, except that Versace reproduced the paintings of artist Philip Taaffe - which hang on the walls of his Manhattan abode - on silk shirts. Taaffe was peeved at this alleged act of plagiarism and complained vociferously. Versace's response in the New York Observer - misspelling the name of the artist - said he was 'convinced that it is important to go through different experiences, without the big problem of promoting himself (Taaffe) as individual and not only as an artist living out of reality'. Perhaps that's Versace's way of saying he couldn't care less. shade surreal CRUELLA De Vil, the fur-clad villain of Walt Disney's 101 Dalmations, is the inspiration behind a new collection by specialist eyewear designer Alain Mikli. In line with the current vogue of tying fashion fads to movies - tight tweed suits a la Evita, floaty romantic gowns courtesy of Portrait Of A Lady - the sunglasses collection is a tribute to, well, dalmations. Frames come in black and white spots and with details like bone-shaped contours and paw marks scratched into the surface. Just one concern though: given that the movie was released last year and finished its run in Hong Kong several weeks ago, isn't this launch slightly behind the times? watch out SWANKY French jewellery and watch people Van Cleef & Arpels are bringing the Monte Carlo Ballet to Hong Kong in May. Prince Albert of Monaco is top of their invitation list. The event is being co-sponsored by Orient Overseas Container Line, the company that Tung Chee-hwa headed before moving onto greater things. Van Cleef & Arpels may use the prestige-laden event to launch a new watch or two. Apparently a prototype sits at the ready in the company's Geneva laboratory. The last time Van Cleef released a new design - the Facade which was inspired by the architecture of Paris' Place Vendome - it was a stunning success. Meanwhile, pricey pen people Montblanc are rumoured to be about to enter the watch fray. At an annual upmarket watch showcase in Geneva in April, the company intends to unveil its first-ever collection. Details are shrouded in secrecy, although the firm has confirmed the new line will be in Hong Kong in September. graphic evidence GERMAN design supremo and photographer Karl Lagerfeld has taken a little break from shooting skinny supermodels to compile a photo-exhibition of his vision of Arcadia, the mythical heavenly city of ancient Greece. Some 60 surreal and mood-infused black and white photographs form part of the Achillion exhibition, which runs at the Goethe Institut until Thursday, March 27. Artistic the shots might be, but Lagerfeld's subjects are still impossibly skinny and unrealistically beautiful. No surprises there.
