The future is now—especially if you’re heading to the 2018 Hong Kong Tatler Ball this Saturday. With the theme being space, it’s your accessories game that should shine like the moon and stars.

Never ones to turn a blind eye to bling, the fashion team at Hong Kong Tatler have found the best glitzy shoes, shimmery cufflinks and high-sheen ties that’ll catch the gaze of every guest at the ball.

Dunhill bow tie

It’s not ‘black tie’ without a bow tie, and Dunhill has the perfect one crafted from 100% mulberry silk. The sleek finish makes this black bow tie delightfully debonair for the ball, and Dunhill has designed it to be tied manually because clip-ons are absolutely not an option for true gentlemen.

Christian Louboutin loafers

You can’t look past the loafer when looking for tuxedo footwear, and the glitzier the better when it comes to this year’s ball. These black Christian Louboutin ‘Rollerboys’ are made from ‘Galactica’ glitter velvet. It’s literally like walking across the night sky when you wear them.

Lanvin belt

The belt is back this season. Lanvin’s 'Distorted Buckle' belt wraps the waist in a future-fashion way; the black calfskin leather strap is embellished with a slightly distorted circular brass buckle, which measures an inch in height. It’s like having a statement belt, but without the kitsch.

Church’s dress shoes

If you want to invest in a pair of dress shoes that will get repeated wear beyond the night of the ball, look to leather lace-ups. These black polished oxfords from British cobbler Church’s have a shapely almond toe, lace fastening, sensible tonal stitching, and a low-rise bench-made leather sole. Proof that comfort and cool can co-exist.

Prada Cufflinks

Robots are taking over the world. Well, the wrist in this case. These robot cufflinks from Prada are excruciatingly detailed and come carved from pure silver with T-bar fastenings. Made in Italy, each robot carries a crystal at the centre, adding a little glow that’s super-beau.

Turnbull & Asser pocket square

Dots hit the spot as an acceptable pattern for black-tie accessories. This grey polka-dot silk pocket square from Turnbull & Asser lightens up an all-black tuxedo look; just make sure you learn how to fold a pocket square first.

Balenciaga cardholder

Slim down your everyday carry for the ball, because bulky pockets are never a good look. Balenciaga makes it easy with a classic cardholder in black textured lambskin. There are three card compartments for the important things like your credit card, cash and ID, and palladium metal screw studs for an industrial finish.

Saint Laurent bow tie

Rewrite the rules of black tie with Saint Laurent’s burgundy bowtie, which comes in plush velvet. The hook and tie closure is a convenient feature, saving bow-tie novices the hassle of nailing the manual tie. Just don’t tell anyone.

Gucci Cufflinks

Cufflinks are to men what earrings are to women, and Gucci is having all the fashion fun this season with its bee-embellished version. In Italian gold, the pair comes made in an oval shape with a malachite green centre with a diamond encrusted bee set on top of each piece.

Stella McCartney brogues

The stars have aligned for this shoe baby made in heaven. Born from Stella McCartney’s Elyse platforms for women, the UK designer’s Lewis Star shoe for men is made in high-shine vegan leather with a tonal all-over star print. The chunky rubber rippled sole are so stylish—and so nineties—that it hurts.
