What to wear during Art Week in Hong Kong

For Her

Sculptural Elegance

You'll look like you've been carved by a Roman sculptor in this architectural outfit by Toni Maticevski, a favourite designer of the fashion set that is available at Lane Crawford. The unusual colour combination and the layers create a striking silhouette, but you can doff your vests to reveal a pure white look that will have everyone glancing twice.

Dot Matrix

Hong Kong doesn't yet have its own Yayoi Kusama Infinity Room, but that doesn't mean you can't channel her signature polka dots, like the ones in this forest-green frock from British label Whistles. Pair it with low sandals - there's a lot of walking to be done if you're going to cover the whole art fair – for a high-style look that's still low-maintenance.

Colour Theory

Make Mark Rothko proud in this colour-blocked ensemble by Salvatore Ferragamo, which consists of a powder-blue shirt, turquoise leather coat and perforated purple boots - the retro-style yellow-orange sunglasses are an extra colour contrast that’s both unexpected and unexpectedly cool.

For Him

Painted Perfection

This printed windbreaker from Dunhill is the perfect shield against the elements, and will make a stylish topper for any ensemble. Throw it on top of whatever you have on already - it looks like it's been painted by a master artist and the mesmerising mix of blues will make you the centre of attention at any event.

Beachy Keen

This Emilio Pucci printed shirt is attention-grabbing enough; add the loud-and-proud red trousers and you'll pretty much be a work of art. The macrame belt adds a little craft-like appeal to the outfit, and while the leather sandals are the perfect resort-chic statement, you can switch them out for a pair of high-top sneakers for a more fashion-forward look.

Gallery Guy

From the Hong Kong- and Shanghai-based design duo Ffixxed Studios, this trompe l'oeil outfit is definitely a looker - it appears that a piece of art has been stuck onto the front, but that’s part of the brand's cut-and-paste signature. The pieces are unisex, so male and female fashionistas can both pull this off - we'd love to see this on a lady with heeled sandals or on a man with cool combat boots.
