Whether you’re looking for a special gift or something glamorous to wear for the season of celebrations and parties, Amanda Clark’s current collection of Wearable Jewels is a great place to start! The collection is created using a range of the most beautiful natural materials; these include lustrous pearls, amber, moonstones, tourmalines, aquamarines and other semi-precious gems. They’re then mixed together and hand crafted by goldsmiths in 18-carat gold. Each piece is unique, and ideal for the woman who appreciates an individual and artisanal approach to their jewellery choices. These are jewels to feel comfortable and confident enough to wear every day! Available exclusively at Altfield Gallery, Shop 249, Prince’s Building Central.

New at Central Market
Haustage and Dafu – two concept branches created by sustainable retailer Match Showroom – have opened in Central Market. The new twin stores bring an extra touch of green lifestyle to the revitalised historic location. Haustage is described as the first sustainable fashion and lifestyle design boutique in Asia – it has an existing outlet at The Mills – while Dafu is known for its iconic white sneakers. There are exclusive deals available at both stores until 31 December.
Building on the brand’s long-standing commitment to create products responsibly, Timberland has introduced its Eco-Ready Collection for Fall/Winter 2021. These lightweight yet functional pieces are made using recycled and responsibly sourced materials. The range of apparel and footwear combines modern design and bold colours to help city dwellers roam the urban landscape in style! Available at all Timberland speciality stores in Hong Kong.
Did you know that around 75 percent of all used face masks end up either in landfill or in our oceans? Mazu Resortwear has come together with HK-based Tsunami Sport to create a reusable face mask that’s not only made from recycled plastic bottles, but is lightweight and breathable, too. It’s printed with Mazu’s signature Junk Twilight pattern, paying tribute to Hong Kong’s humble sailing vessel, and is available in three different sizes for HK$150 at mazuresortwear.com.
Sweat for a Cause
A workout can make you feel better about yourself, and now it can put a smile on other people’s faces too. Sparks activewear has a timeless style and is made of comfort-driven material, so you can wear it anywhere, anytime. What’s more, with every purchase, you can choose one of the three organisations to support: Clean Yangon, an NGO that plants trees in Myanmar to help sustainable communities and the environment; Changing Stories, a small non-profit that helps local teacher and students in remote areas of Nepal; and RUN, which provides yoga and hiking-for-healing sessions for refugees in Hong Kong. Sparks leggings are around $280, and the sports bras are $246; plus, the store has recently introduced new pocket leggings.

We’re loving new local jewellery brand, Lilie Sai Wan. The range is designed right here in Hong Kong by French expat Aurélie Samuel. The delicate pieces are perfect for everyday style, with fine feminine design and a pinch of sparkle. Made from silver and high-quality 18-carat gold plating, they make beautiful gifts.
