The legendary Silk Road is the source of inspiration for Shanghai Tang's autumn/winter collection. Titled Kohtan, the collection draws upon tribal prints from Central Asia as well as traditional Han Chinese motifs such as peonies. Look for men's and women's clothing and accessories featuring the ikat motif - a symbol of the Central Asian tribes of Chinese Turkestan. Standouts include the Giant Ikat sweater-coat (right; HK$10,800), hand-knitted in desert colours such as red, orange and purple. Men can also go ethnic with the Mongolian Knot cashmere and silk zip-up jumper (far right; HK$3,800) in navy or chocolate. The collection is available at all Shanghai Tang locations, including Pedder Building, Central, tel: 2525 7333.
