This week, we’ve put together a very special edition of Style & Living. We’ve invited a series of guest editors – people who are really, really in the know – to help us choose the ultimate picks for your home, your wardrobe and your make-up bag. Journalist Carolyn Asome picks out the piece dubbed ‘the skirt of the season’ – a cool, Seventies-style, perfectly cut suede skirt that has had the fashion pack and the press all talking. Screen legend Joanna Lumley chooses a gorgeous bouquet designed in honour of the Chelsea flower show; make-up artist Kay Montano reveals the ultimate lip balm to keep her A-list clientele’s pouts in perfect condition; and fashion writer Laura Craik recommends the prettiest peach lingerie set we’ve seen. Two of M&S’s own design heads also choose their favourite pieces, while House Beautiful magazine’s Liz Murphy has found the ultimate sun lounger: chic, stylish and comfortable. Just add an ice-cold cocktail, and you’re all set for summer.
Last week, our very own Twiggy won the top gong at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards. Attending the glamorous ceremony alongside some of fashion’s most high-profile names, Twiggy took home the Hall of Fame: Icon award – past winners include Christopher Bailey and Barbara Hulanicki. So, if you’re keen to channel some award-winning style, look no further than her latest designs for M&S Collection. From chic printed pieces to sleek monochrome styles, this standout range is the perfect summer selection.
