Most Coveted: Celine, Dior, Acne Studios, Johanna Ortiz and More

When it comes to luxury, you can rest assured that Prestige has it covered. But with the sheer multitude, let alone variety, released regularly on the landscape, it can become rather difficult to figure out the best from the rest or to even pick up the newest and most exciting. As luck would have it, our editors are forever on the look out: discovering on-the-rise labels, picking up new products from cult brands and the finding the most desirable items there are. So for those that are curious what that might be, keep scrolling to discover what made the cut in our weekly Most Coveted list.

Travel plans are still, sadly, on hold, but with Hong Kong’s temperature on the rise, I can’t help but feel we should still get in the mood for a holiday. Enter Faithfull The Brand. The Indonesian-based label uses locally-made, hand-printed and hand-dyed fabrics for their collection that has travel in mind. So in the spirit of travelling, I’ve picked out this lime green linen co-ord that will cheer up wander-lost souls all round.  — Fontaine Cheng (FC), Digital Editor

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m being a bit of a bag brat lately. But with the number of launches this past month, can you really blame me? Celine’s Large Soft 16 is everything for the girl on the go – the relaxed structure and spaciousness of the new iconic 16 bag is ideal for work and play. It can hold everything from the basic essentials to work documents to my trusty water bottle that I never go anywhere without. — Dara Chau (DC), Senior Digital Editor



There’s more than a hint of ’70s disco magic in these gloriously high Gianvito Rossi platforms in dark green (brand colour Persian Blue) with round-gold buckles. For those looking for something a little daintier for every day, try the Estelle heeled sandals with see-through ankle straps pulled together with a dainty bow. — Jing Zhang (JZ), Editor at Large



Inside — cold, outdoors — hot, and then back indoors — cold again. And so goes our game of hot/cold temperature during summers in Hong Kong. To conquer this, I figured I need a jacket that will keep me from catching that blasted air-con cold and stumbled upon Acne Studios’ dusty pink denim jacket. The mix of organic cotton panels is finished with raw edges along the seams. It’s casual, but boxy enough to add structure to any outfit.  — FC



With every turn, you’ll come across the Dior Book Tote. And we all love it as much as the next person, but it is rather overexposed. So when Dior introduced its Rosa Mutabilis collection for Fall 2020, it was love at first sight. The exquisite Chinese rose embroidery on the hit silhouette that we’re so familiar with is simply swoon-worthy. Plus the romantic florals on white canvas and powdery blush logo is just what we need to lighten up our ensembles. I also can’t help but obsess over the matching Dway Sandals to show off my summer pedicure. — DC

Is it beach time yet? Seriously, we’re dying to slip into something tight and sexy, yet supportive. We’ve come so far from the string bikini or simple one-piece. We’ve been spying Johanna Ortiz on the Moda Operandai website — she does some of the most fashionable swimwear around. Feminine peplums and frills, sophisticated hues, florals and asymmetrical shapes always keep it interesting. — JZ
