Even though the autumn catwalks are awash with voluminous shapes, what woman can resist a pretty, well-cut dress with a vintage twist? Filling the niche is local label Pocket Venus, created by designer Jane Troughton and worn by the ultimate girlie girls: Rachel Bilson, Jodie Kidd and Laura Bailey. The brand is known for its bespoke prints, intricate embellishments and subtle shapes, and includes plenty of midnight-blue silks (a hot colour for the season), indigo and chocolate. Standouts include a beaded cocktail dress (above left; HK$4,500) with sequined embroidery in silver, indigo and ruby, and sleeves shaped to resemble vintage capes. For Sienna Miller wannabees, there are lambswool tunic dresses (above right; HK$1,450) that can be thrown over leggings for that Sedgwick look. Get in quickly - that item is already on re-order. Pocket Venus is at 14 Shing Wong Street, Central, tel: 2548 8530.
