10 bed linen sets for spring

10 bed linen sets for spring and beyond

Set your sights on a spring home refresh? Start with the bedroom. The humble duvet set has maximum impact with minimal effort - especially when we’re talking punchy prints, embroidered details and splashes of mood-lifting colour. Here’s our pick of the best (with no clean whites in sight).

 


1. Flower power

Olivier Desforge Euginie Duvet Cover

 

There are floral prints, and then there are floral prints. This joyful, painterly option captures the mood of a wild meadow carpeted in the vibrant hues of hydrangea, anemone and eglantine.

2. Tribal touch

Linea Krishna Embroidery Duvet Set

 

We’re championing all things artisanal, and this set gets top marks. Alright, so it’s technically white – but the ethnic-inspired embroidery adds just enough colour and texture. Pair with rattan accessories.

3. Wild side

Biba Adrianna Animal Print Duvet Set

 

Animal print might not be totally traditional for the warmer months, but this new take on leopard print is a little bit special. With a blush base and hints of electric blue, it feels totally fresh.

4. Colour me happy

Linea Egyptian 200 Thread Count Duvet Set

 

Sometimes a sunshine hue is all you need. This Egyptian cotton set has plenty to choose from - we love dusky Rose, on-trend Coral, or this punchy Chartreuse. Just don't forget the matching pillowcases.

5. Grey area

Murmur Scribble Duvet Covers

 

This Japanese-inspired abstract print is subtle enough to drag Scandi superfans away from their plain grey linen sets, but still lively enough to inject a bit of interest. Layer it up with contrasting cushions and a chunky knit.

6. Retro revival

Orla Kiely Summer Flower Stem Duvet Cover

 

Orla Kiely’s retro-inspired patterns and cheerful hues were made for spring. With a masterful mix of blush, citrine, olive and marine blue, this update adds a little flower power to her signature stem print.

7. Eastern promises

Christie Siam Duvet Set

 

A kind of pared-back paisley, this decorative design takes its inspiration straight from Southeast Asia. And in crisp blue and white, it's fancy without feeling fussy - proving you can always count on Christy

8. Word up

Donna Wilson Bla Bla Bla Duvet Set

 

It might be scrawled all over, but 'blah' is definitely not how we feel about this quirky duvet set from Donna Wilson. There's a cool, contemporary dash print on the reverse, too (and oh how we love a two-in-one).

Get ready to embrace opulent dressing this spring

Get ready to embrace opulent dressing this spring

 

Are you feeling what we’re feeling? The weather’s not great. Holidays feel like a world way. You look at your wardrobe and you’re hit with a sea of old jumpers and the same four colours you’ve worn for the last four years. It’s all, well, a bit bleak. So this new season, we’ve decided to put the spring back in our step. Amazing suiting, print clashing and more, we’re forming an anti-minimalist movement to put the fun back into getting dressed. We recommend you join us.

The who, what, why


Menswear is having a quiet re-evaluation. After seasons where the buzzword on everyone’s lips has been ‘streetwear’, for Spring/Summer 2019 ‘craft’ and ‘haute couture’ are starting to be whispered.

The epitome of old-fashioned elegance, the suit dominated the shows. Even designers known for their casual collections dabbled in tailoring LIKE WHO. Neon suits, head-to-toe pastels, oversized double-breasted jackets, you name it, it was on the catwalk.

Print clashing also remains a key trend, with the likes of Versace and Valentino leading the way, we’re adding it to our suiting wardrobes.

Our key takeways for the season? Fun, maximalist and elegance rule supreme.

The how

 

The key to our mantra this season is it’s never too much. For smarter occasions, pick a floral suit and pair with an even more botanical shirt. Alternatively, go for boldness in the colour department with a two piece suit in a full-on tone – a rusty red, an olive green or a pastel which feels thoroughly on-trend for this season.

For smart-casual, go for an amazing printed shirt. Dress it down by teaming with relaxed joggers or up with checked suit trousers cut to show off a great pair of loafers.

In all your ensembles, think popping. Take a simple tee a step further with a standout graphic; for a shirt, go bright; and for a work look, pick an amazing clashing tie. Remember, it’s only OTT when you say it is.

Bags to brag about

Bags to brag about

 

We may have to wait a good few months before we can really embrace spring’s latest looks (without also accessorising with goosebumps, that is), but there's one fashion item that we’re adding to our wardrobes imminently: handbags. Impatient types are in luck - many of our favourite 2019 bag trends are already ripe for the picking on the shopping circuit. From ladylike top handle bags to luxe-look croc-embossed styles, we've rounded up the spring bag trends we can't wait to get our hands on this season.

 

Shop Bags  

 

 

Tote 2.0


Micro handbag trends are great and all, but if you're the kind of person who carries their life in their bag from dawn to dusk, you need a sidekick that doesn't mess around. You’re in luck - the roomy tote bag trend is on the upswing for SS19, and not only are they back, they’re supersized enough to accommodate the woman that wants to take everything with her – and we mean everything. If the parachute-sized bags of the runway are a little OTT for your morning commute, a sizeable tote will do the trick.

 

 

 

Slouchy grab bags

 

Whether it’s an oversized tote or a diminutive bucket bag, the range of slouchy and hobo bags on the SS19 catwalks suggests a definite move away from the ultra-structured handbags of seasons’ past toward styles that are a bit more laid-back. Soft, supple and perfect for slinging over your shoulder as you dash out of the door, these styles will be the perfect partner to those dreamy boho dresses and rope sandals come spring.

 

 

 

Top-handle bags


Many a fashion throwback will be trending this year - ‘80s power suits and bleached denim are just two of our favourites. In the world of bags, however, stay poised for the return of the ladylike top-handle handbag. These super sophisticated shapes will add a practical and charming detail to any outfit. They work with pretty much any get-up, but we're teaming them with a checked, oversized blazer and some pearl-adorned hair slides to really channel your inner ‘extra-from-The-Crown’.

 

 

 

Bucket bags

 

Bucket bags were high on the fashion agenda last year and our penchant for this shape shows no sign of waning - when a bag is just as fashionable as it is functional, what's not to love? Whether you’re drawn to a sleek, minimal design or want to be bold with a trail of tassels, there's a bucket bag for us all. If you need extra incentive to take one for a spin, don’t forget that they’re deceptively spacious - so forget packing light and fill ‘em up.
