She cuts a sleek sil­hou­ette in a sub­tly tai­lored shapely suit while he checks in this sea­son in bold plaids

Get into the spirit of the sea­son with a new suit. The bor­rowed-from-the-boys look is toned down this fall with more sub­tle tai­lor­ing. Gone are the bulky shoul­ders of pre­vi­ous sea­sons, which have been chis­elled down to sleeker sil­hou­ettes that ac­cen­tu­ate the hour­glass shape, as seen on the Tom Ford and Fendi run­ways. The lady bag of the ’50s also makes a come­back, thanks to de­sign­ers such as Nico­las Gh­esquière of Louis Vuit­ton, so throw on some leather pumps and retro sun­glasses to show the world you mean busi­ness.

Ca­rina Lau wears many hats. You’ve prob­a­bly seen her in one of the nu­mer­ous block­busters she’s starred in (In­fer­nal Af­fairs II sound fa­mil­iar?), but you may not know the Hong Kong-based ac­tress has ven­tured into fash­ion de­sign to cre­ate clothes for mod­ern mul­ti­task­ing women like her­self. Founded in 2015, Anirac (Lau’s first name spelled back­wards) has made a name for power suits and elon­gated sil­hou­ettes per­fect for any oc­ca­sion, from the board­room to the board­walk. The fall/win­ter 2018 col­lec­tion, which is ti­tled Me-Ism, draws in­spi­ra­tion from the ’80s work­ing girl, with mod­els saun­ter­ing down the run­way in high-waisted trousers and disco ear­rings, with a sprin­kling of menswear de­tails added for a more an­drog­y­nous look. With Lau want­ing to cap­ture the in­de­pen­dent spirit of women to­day, tai­lored pieces and tuxedo jackets are the bread and but­ter of her col­lec­tions, but the in­flu­ence of her artist grand­fa­ther’s love of tra­di­tional flo­rals comes through in sexy dresses for evening­wear.
