Welcome to Style & Living. This week, we’re feeling inspired by great art and innovation, with a collection of finds, buys and trends that take clever design and make it work for your life. On Wednesday, our womenswear editor Charlene Barton reports from Paris, centre of the art and fashion worlds, where she shows you how to replicate French women’s flair for casually pulling together a fabulous look. Then there’s our men’s style story, The Art Of Dressing, in which menswear editor Ian Wright creates summer-ready looks with an artistic flourish. Elsewhere, we have glass tumblers that mix soft pastel shades with a two-tone finish; a daring lingerie set in zingy, painterly coral; and a clever pair of rugged jeans built with smart new technology that’s designed to work as hard as you do. And lastly, just to make you smile, there are regally cute romper suits fit for a future prince or princess – whenever he or she decides to make an appearance. Enjoy.
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the iconic charity fashion campaign, is back for 2015, and a host of chic female celebrities, including Lilah Parsons and Lily Donaldson, will be inspiring women across the UK to support the fight. M&S has joined the campaign with a range of exclusive pieces. What better way to welcome the sunshine, and tick off two of this season’s top trends, than with a vibrant floral jumpsuit, as sported by Made in Chelsea’s Rosie Fortescue (pictured), one of the charity’s stylish ambassadors.
