Roses and thorns We love Dior Joaillerie's Bois de Rose collection and how the brand has interpreted the stem of a thorny plant, lending the exquisite pieces an organic look. Take a look at the gold stem hoop earrings with diamonds on the thorns (above right; HK$62,000). Other standouts include the yellow-diamond-encrusted ring in yellow gold (top left; HK$93,000) and the rose-gold ring with rose diamonds (above left; HK$290,000 by special order). Dior Joaillerie is at Christian Dior, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2524 8277. Quilted pleasure Marc Jacobs' quilted bag collection is youthful and light, featuring a large zip wallet in concrete grey (below; HK$3,990) and the Rubik Nylon navy Westside handbag (right; HK$7,590). Marc Jacobs is at The Landmark, tel: 2523 3324. High on style Tote bags are useful, light and ubiquitous but it can be hard to find one that doesn't end up looking grubby after a couple of weeks. Sac Paris carries a nice black leather and snakeskin-print version (below; HK$990) that injects a bit of glamour into the tote. The materials are also more durable than the regular ink-stained, cotton, student-days number, giving more shape and form to this basic bag. Sac Paris is at Seibu, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2971 3888. Skin show American-Chinese designer Phillip Lim never shies away from glamour. His autumn/winter collection of round-toed high heels features shoes with snakeskin-effect detailing in gold (right; HK$6,980) and black (below right; HK$7,980). An emphasis on buckling and a contrast of reflective and matte finishes create an interesting balance that can easily transition from day to evening. Phillip Lim is at On Pedder, New World Tower, Central, tel: 2118 3489. Sexy in satin This festive season, vamp it up with a sexy satin dress. Max & Co has an ultra-flattering two-tone satin number (right; HK$2,980), with a feminine cut and black panels that emphasise the waist, hips and cleavage. Max & Co is at Sogo, Causeway Bay, tel: 2722 9614. Clean lines Spending Christmas away could yet be a stylish affair, with Tumi's Townhouse range of luggage. The clean retro look of the Tennyson Cafe case (far left; HK$18,370) and the Motcomb Hat Box (left; HK$22,970) shows Mad Men's reach has transcended hemlines. The muted palette of metallic blue, rust, taupe and berry red encourages mixing and matching. Tumi is at DFS Galleria, Chinachem Plaza, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2732 5229.
