6. Cath Kidston Oxford Rose Backpack
As we slip into autumn we can’t help falling in love with the warmer, darker hues that have flooded into all the stores. Top on our list for fall fashion has got to be British brand Cath Kidston and the new ‘Turn Over a New Leaf’ collection. Think prints of falling leaves, woodland floral designs, vintage inspiration and unusual colours. We loved the big, bold painterly ‘Oxford Rose’ pattern, which is ideal for transferring easily from summer to autumn. The Handbag Backpack turns a practical accessory into a pretty addition to your wardrobe, ideal for weekend getaways!
Available for $850 at any Cath Kidston store in Hong Kong. See all Hong Kong stores here.
7. By Terry Light-Expert Click Brush
It’s not just fashion brands that are introducing new collections for fall – make-up brands are releasing brand new products to get you all dolled up for the winter season. French make-up brand By Terry is the leader of the pack with a host of exciting new products and gorgeous palettes in autumnal hues… but what sticks out to us is the innovative ‘Light-Expert Click Brush‘. With just a simple click, four dots of foundation emerge from the brush which you can then apply with ease. This foundation brush gives ‘convenient’ a whole new meaning and makes blending foundation and creating a flawless complexion easier than ever – a must-have product in our books!
Available for $655/19.5ml at By Terry counters in Hong Kong (Lane Crawford, JOYCE Beauty).
8. UGG Bling and Constellation Collection
It might not be cold enough in Hongkers yet to justify wearing a full blown pair of snuggly UGG boots, but the new UGG collection has more than just boots and slippers. The Bling and Constellation Collection features a casual, smoking slipper style in three different colours that’s studded with Swavorski crystals. Choose from black, navy or granite suede with Italian leather details and a unique, constellation crystal design inspired by the night sky of Yosemite… simply stunning! You would never even know that these sparkly flats are UGGs and they are perfect for wearing around town in the current temperature.
Available for $1,490 at all UGG stores in Hong Kong – see locations in HK here.
