Feminine charms
It's widely known that IWC Schaffhausen is good at making watches with men in mind, but the new, smaller cousins of the Portofino family prove that the watchmaker can also make magnificent timepieces for women.

In full battle gear
Imagine walking into a medieval castle in all its glory. Pennants streaming from ramparts, suits of armor standing to attention, tapestry with flowers picked out in gold thread ... That is the world of Tory Burch's collection for the season. The fall ready-to-wear line is straight out of Game of Thrones with bejeweled medieval motifs, chain-mail fabric, tapestry-inspired jumpers and Maltese crosses.

Smallest `S'uper model
The newest member of an extensive and growing Audi range is also the latest addition to the much desired S series of the brand. The Audi S1 Sportback, like all other S models, features the all-wheel- drive quattro system and is designed with good performance and handling in mind.

French fervor
The love affair with all things French continues at Great Food Hall. Until November 6, the France Festival will showcase nearly 100 traditional delights.

Yee haw!
More than 1,000 people attended the Great American BBQ at Cyberport on Saturday, tucking into baby back ribs, smoked beef brisket, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches and chicken wings, all washed down with US wines and beers.

Bon appetit!
How do you hold a house party in style? Do it like the French and pamper your guests with a two-hour aperitif before feeding them.

Potty over Picasso
Canvas is the usual medium for paintings, but what about pottery?

In the black
In her black sheath, green jacket and black ballerina flats, Karen Bur, retail and brand manager at Alexandre de Paris, is the embodiment of French chic.

The right voice
Inside China is the first project born of a three-year collaborative agreement signed between K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Capturing Korea
Korean culture is more than hit television shows and catchy tunes. Three artists are proving the point in an exhibition that runs until October 31 in Times Square.
