The addition of polka dots is an easy way to make any outfit look fun and a little less serious. At the same time, there’s no need to look like your great aunt Dottie. So it is imperative that we choose our polka dots wisely. Enter Self-Portrait, one of my favourite London-based labels by Malaysian born designer Han Chong. I’ve got my eye on this cute blue top, which is the perfect playful outfit for summer. Plus it comes complete with white polka dots and a heart shape neckline, as well as figure-flattering peplum bodice and puff sleeves. — Fontaine Cheng, Digital Editor
Delicate fine chains replace chunky jewellery this season. Bvlgari’s graceful fan-shaped motif is pretty in pink for summer. The iconic pendant in 18-carat rose gold set in pink opal captures the colours of the Caracalla Baths marble. The classic necklace also comes in a version with pavê diamonds for a little extra sparkle. — Dara Chau, Senior Digital Editor
Why decide on one, when you can have it all? Inspired by jewellery box, Chanel has released a black quilted lambskin box with an in-built mirror and four compartments, each housing one miniature bag including the Boy Chanel, Gabrielle, 2.55, and Flap Bag. They may be teeny and smaller than a WOC (wallet on chain) — and yes, your phone is definitely not going to fit in it — but it doesn’t matter, because miniature purses come with one very useful attribute: being able to “Marie Kondo” your belongings to only the bare essentials that really do spark joy. — Tiffany Poon, Society Editor
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of owning a pair of leggings that feel so comfortable you could live in them, and still smooth out all your squiggly bits, then you’ll understand why i’m so excited about these super sculpting leggings by Sweaty Betty. Just like a hug, these high-waisted leggings compress and sculpt while providing support where needed. They are also extremely comfortable to wear and have a fold-over waistband that will never dig into your hips and handles. What’s more, the side pocket means you can go hands-free while you walk, run, HIIT, and visit the supermarket. They’ve just opened their second Hong Kong store at Fashion Walk in Causeway Bay, so you know where I’ll be heading this weekend. — Fontaine Cheng, Digital Editor
Restrictions have left bars and restaurants temporarily shut. But it is during these hard times, that we could all use a drink. Thank you Dom Pérignon. This 2010 vintage opens up with sweet and luminous tropical fruit on the nose and unfolds with a sappy sensation and a punch of spices and pepper. Can you tell what’s in my shopping basket right now? — Dara Chau, Senior Digital Editor
With many staying at home —thanks to lock down measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic— and picking up new DIY hobbies, tie-dye is making a massive come back this summer. And they’re not the only ones. Using the Tie & Dior motif, Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has graced Dior’s timeless 30 Montaigne Box Bag with a tie-dye look on smooth printed calf leather. The new box bag comes in a navy blue coloured pattern and finished with an antique gold-finish metal ‘CD’ clasp. The collection is now available in store and I’m looking to bag one for myself. — Tiffany Poon, Society Editor
