'What do YOU think are the key pieces to invest in for spring? any colours/styles we should be looking out for?'

Greys are subtly coloured and tinted with lilac. All tones of green are important, especially khaki, moss and olive. Neutrals take on a brown cast and shades of taupe are key. Watery blues are important again and range from deep and dark indigo to pale and clean, icy blue. Corals become more orange-infused and intense. Red is either pink or orange cast.

1/ Update the crop top using a trapeze silhouette.
2/ The classic white shirt is morphed into a blouse/shirt hybrid.
3/ An evolution of last season’s Envelope silhouette. Curvaceous hip volume creates a dramatic two-dimensional effect.
4/ French knickers cross over into outerwear with a sportswear aspect.
5/ Tight fitting Bodice and loose skirt create a sporty minidress.
6/ Modern in its complete simplicity, this statuesque dress hints at Roman drape detailing.
7/ The mini is transformed into a chic cone silhouette.
8/ Create an 80s retro-activewear appeal with this square silhouette shell top.
