Editorial: Serene spring styling04/04/2012

Gorgeous twenties-inspired spring shoot by L’Officiel Singapore. Can totally see Coco Chanel in these gamine looks, and absolutely love the pyjama blazer, classic cardigan jacket and oversized broderie anglais lace all in fresh black and white. Serene spring styling at its vintage best.

Wanted: Spring sweaters04/03/2012

Despite the heatwave last week, spring in England isn’t as warm as its cracked up to be. Boyish sweaters are perfect for this time of year when, lets face it, it’s still pretty cold. Luckily they’re bang on trend, with loads of variations to try: chunky fisherman’s knits, new stripes, bold graphics and pastel coloured tweedy knits.

Sweaters: Cotton coral knit from Whistles, woven striped by Burberry at net-a-porter, graphic knit by Le Mont St Michel at ASOS, pastel coloured tweedy knit by Folk at Coggles

Trending: Nikes04/01/2012

Who’d have thought it, Nike trainers, with their orthopaedic functionalities, chunky silhouettes and garish colour-ways, have become a fully-fledged-fashion it-piece. Whether they are a sideline to the Olympics-inspired spring/summer sportswear trend, a cure for 6-inch-heel-inflicted bunions or simply a quicker way to get around, these shoes are catching on. Buy into this unexpected-yet entirely practical and comfy- trend with Nikes in serene summer pastels or shocking neon, while these Stella McCartney for adidas trainers are perfect in bubblegum pink.

On the street: Marni for H&M03/25/2012

The Marni for H&M collection was always going to be a huge hit. The printed silk pyjama short-suit was one of the best pieces in the collection, tapping into the masculine pyjama trend perfectly while staying true to Marni’s identity with its beautiful quirky print. The pyjama suit has been seen on all the top fashion blogs since the launch, with pattern-clashing, high heels and bed-head hair being the best styling details.

Wanted: Ally Capellino men’s bags

The SS12 men’s collection by London-based leather-accessories designer Ally Capellino is smart, simple and exudes high quality. These bags may be intended for him, but the classic buttery leather backpacks, satchels and totes in weathered tan, khaki and sky blue are perfect for spring. I really love the contrast coloured bases- a top trend for detail right now.
