The future is now
If you're a high-end fashion store looking for an exclusive tie-up with a beauty brand, the obvious place to look at is a high-end spa.

Blue notes
While tree leaves and branches swaying to the autumn breeze denotes the arrival of autumn, the cooling sensation that comes along is the telltale sign that it is time to swap tanks and shorts for thicker pieces.

Saving grace
First unveiled at April's Beijing Auto Show, the Lexus NX300h was launched in Hong Kong last week.

Under the harvest moon
The Mid-Autumn Festival is an occasion for outdoor reunions, and Galley Cafe & Dining in Tsim Sha Tsui taps into this tradition by serving a Mooncake Tea Set for two (from HK$328).

Reaching for the moon
Chocolates seem to be the way to go for mid-autumn gifting this year. Gourmet chocolatier Jean-Paul Hevin celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival by introducing a French twist to traditional Chinese mooncakes.

Creating with light
Light painting is a lot of fun. It can be as easy as a child spinning a glow stick around. Or as complex as the work of art group Lichtfaktor.

Masters program
If you long to view French original masterpieces, there is no need to fly all the way to Paris.

Go the extra mile
To Stephen Wong See-yuen, good leadership can be boiled down to two magic words: experience and empathy.

Titanic timepieces
Rolex has launched the new Deepsea D-Blue Dial Edition in true Hollywood fashion - the watch featured in director James Cameron's ocean adventure documentary, Deepsea Challenge 3D.

In neutral gear
Balenciaga's autumn/winter collection is a study in neutrals: black, white and dark green. Rich plum, peacock blue, and fluorescents - with a sprinkling of prints - add punch to the mix.
