The fame frames Valentino's collection of sunglasses for autumn features modern interpretations of classic 1950s styles, with precise lines and strong contrasts. The VLogo pair (top right; HK$2,495) has a sleek, understated frame, with the Valentino "V" subtly formed at the nose. The glamorous Fifties frames (bottom right; HK$2,895) feature a fine gold trim round the lens. Valentino is in IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2234 7193.



A study in contrast French label Rue du Mail's designer Martine Sitbon has created a beautiful autumn-winter collection based on a theme of contrasts and contradictions. Geometric cut-outs and sharp lines create an androgynous look, tempered by hints of femininity in sheer panels and vibrant colours. The dress featuring bold cut-outs (left; HK$33,500) and the white coat with flared back (far left; HK$27,900) are seriously stylish. Rue du Mail is available at Joyce, 16 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2810 1120.
