Shorts work
Life has come full circle for David Gandy. In 2006, the British model was catapulted to international fame, thanks to the famous underwear shot Mario Testino took of him for a Dolce & Gabbana fragrance advert.

M loving it
For some people, the first thing that springs to mind when the letter M is mentioned is McDonald's. Designer Jeremy Scott wants them to equate M with Moschino.

Mini me
Unlike the Clubman, Countryman and Paceman that came before it, the new Mini 5-door Hatch has not been given a catchier model name.

Keeping it real
It's always difficult to strike the right balance when opening a specialty restaurant. Not authentic enough and the foodies will complain, too authentic and it may not suit local taste buds.

Fiery touch
Fire often stands for destruction but for Xue Song, it marks rebirth and transformation.

Watch and learn
When it comes to naming the world's best luxury watch fair, if Switzerland nominates the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Hong Kong can counter with Watches & Wonders.

Dynamic duo
The all-new, third generation Audi TT retains much of the design flair of its predecessors. Those with keen eyes, though, will notice the new aggressive look, with, among other things, a restyled grille, LED headlamps and a longer wheelbase.

Truff crowd
The rarest of mushrooms, the white truffle, makes its appearance in autumn and chefs just can't get enough.

All the fun of the fest
Prepare to have fun at the largest outdoor arts festival in Hong Kong - Freespace Fest 2014 at the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade on November 22 and 23.

Doing it by design
Local designers will get to pick the brains of some of the world's most creative minds next month. Around 100,000 people turned up for the Business of Design Week last year, and it is expected that figure will be topped at the December 1-6 event as a lineup of stellar speakers from home and abroad reveal inside details from their success stories.
