Pieces of eight We're big fans of adding some statement sparkle to fresh-faced, new year, minimal chic. But it doesn't have to be fine jewellery. Phase Eight specialises in in-your-face glitz and glamour, with a selection of evening gowns featuring plenty of sequins, lace and baroque embellishments. But bypass those for the time being and look to the Cleo crystal necklace (top right) at an affordable HK$575 or the Penelope 2-in-1 necklace (above left; HK$425), to wear with a simple shirt. For evenings, jazz it up with the silver Lola glitter clutch (above right; HK$975). Phase Eight is in IFC Mall, Central.

Rebel yell DVF's Rebel Princess collection brings together long, lean and loose 1970s silhouettes, graphic patterns and a devil-may-care attitude. We love the daring wide-leg jumpsuit (above right; HK$7,300) and the zebra-print trench (above left; HK$7,800) for something a little more formal for the office. DVF is in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Well red If the countless copies and counterfeits are anything to go by, Céline has got the handbag market cornered. And if you happen to have some wealthy and rather generous friends or family, you might like to put these items on your Lunar New Year wish list. We love the light burgundy (this sort of counts as something red) goatskin mini belt bag (top; HK$19,000) and the nifty, versatile smooth lambskin cross-body bag (above; HK$8,500). Céline is in The Landmark, Central.
