GENEVA ON STYLE STAPLES AND SAILING HER WAY INTO CHINESE NEW YEAR

What's your favourite thing about Central?
Central is such a magnificently hectic and chaotic place, and there's a wonderful mix of old and new. Traditional food markets give way to vistas of the tallest high rises you can imagine. For me, it's the heart of the city - there's nothing better than a few hours spent in the area, seeing so many people going about their everyday lives.

In three words, describe Hong Kong style.
Quirky, luxe and your own.

What one style essential could you not live without?
The perfect pair of jeans.

Silver, gold, rose gold, or all of the above?
I'm all about yellow gold but also love to mix in some rose gold here and there.

What's your favourite gemstone colour for winter?
I think darker gemstones reflect the mood of winter so I'll go for black onyx or lapis.

I adore friendship bracelets with luxe detailing. The Fiji Chain Bracelet is the perfect nod to simplicity.

Do you have any rituals for Chinese New Year?
Lots of eating and drinking with family and friends!

How will you be celebrating Chinese New Year?
I'm crossing my fingers that the weather will be sunny as we often go out to Sai Kung on a boat with our friends. Here's hoping!

What will you be wearing?
I'll be wrapping up in a blanket scarf.

Tell us about your happiest Chinese New Year memory.
The streets lined with cumquat trees are utterly gorgeous and always stick in my memory.
