Designer tastes

Part of London designer Michael van der Ham’s zingy new capsule collection for M&S, this graphic-print platform shoe and zesty tweed bag bring the season’s fun and whimsical mood to life. “Contrasting fabrics and the layering of textures have always inspired me, so I wanted to stay true to this aesthetic but with a playful spring edge,” says Michael.

Already a hit with the style set, snap your bag up at one of these stores: Argyle Street Glasgow, Bluewater, Gemini, Handforth, Kensington, Lisburn, Liverpool, Manchester, Marble Arch, Newcastle, Pantheon, Waterloo Rail and White City.


Fruit punch

Add some zing to pastel accessories with a burst of juicy colour. Pep up this ladylike top-handle tote () with a pair of bold shoes to supercharge your outfit. Equally, this soft peach and creamy vanilla cross-body bag () will offset the boldest of ensembles.

“Consider your pairings
and infuse DELICATE
shades with a rich shot
of colour”


Fresh picks

Earthy shades are perfect for offsetting the season’s khaki trend. The fashion equivalent of a healthy green juice, pick a neutral shoulder bag or tan shoes (these suede sandals with a perspex heel, , are coming soon) and you’ll feel well balanced, whatever you’re wearing. From an LBD to indigo denim, these versatile accessories work with multiple looks.

“For a CLASSIC finish,
neutral accessories are
the cream of the crop”
