Baby bonanza If you want to hear coos and aahs at your Chinese New Year gatherings then arrive armed with Shanghai Tang's new baby collection. Composed of red silk booties and kung fu shoes (both $260), a cosy mein lap ($720), jade bracelets ($268 each) and a matching photo album ($380) and frame ($320), the range was designed to bring good luck to the baby who already has everything. From Shanghai Tang, Pedder Building, Central, and The Peninsula, Tsim Sha Tsui. Power pants What do the White House, the Elysee Palace and the Louvre have in common? All have housed Hom's patented HO1 brief; Bill Clinton and Jacques Chirac are both known to sport the undergarment, while it also features in the Louvre's fashion and design collection. Why the fuss? The HO1 has a pioneering horizontal fly, which provides equal-opportunity access to both lefties and righties, and contoured seams, which are said to create mountains out of molehills. However, for all the innovation, the palette is rather limited: the briefs are available in white, grey and black, with prices ranging from $198 for minis to $248 for boxer briefs. Call 2534-5005 for more information. Two for the road The day/evening dilemma - how to go from the office to cocktails and on to a dinner party in the same outfit but with a new twist - is not exclusive to the fairer sex. Strong, authoritive men can also face a quandary in such situations, which is why Cartier has come up with The Roadster. This new watch has interchangeable straps that can be snapped on or off at a whim, allowing men-about-town to add a fetching new detail from appointment to appointment. The Roadster, touted as 'an exclusively masculine vision of time', was inspired by classic sportscars. From $24,800 for a stainless steel dial with calf-skin and steel straps, to $128,000 for a gold dial with alligator-skin and gold straps. From Cartier boutiques and authorised dealers.
